Flying is about to take on a whole new meaning at Alton Towers next year as they reveal their most technically advanced roller coaster so far, the flying coaster. Different to Vekoma's version, this ride will see riders board the trains underneath the track and travel up the lift hill underneath the track, the experience should give a superman flying feel and will complete the first flying corkscrew element ever seen.
In march 2001 the construction site was just that, a patch of mud. But now, over three-fourths of the track has been erected.
sw5live.com recently updated with nearly 20 new on-site pictures and an exclusive photograph of the artists impression of the rides shop, seen only in the staff head quaters.
So many times we have had to sit here and listen to our American colleagues harping on and on about their awsome coasters, now we will be getting two of the worlds first. The worlds first B & M Flying Coaster and the worlds highest inverted at Ingoldmells in Lincolnshire.
So along with Nemesis and the amazing Oblivion this must now suely put the UK back on track for harbouring some of the top class coasters in the world today. Now its your turn guys over in the US to get yourselves over here and ride the best.
I wondr why B & M chose the UK over the US to build their first flying coaster??????????????????????
Dont dream it, ride it!!
I'm not saying they're not decent, but I long for a simple, honest B&M sitdown looper!
