Another B&M question

Saturday, February 10, 2001 1:16 PM
I think B&M designs the smoothest coasters. Does anybody think that might have to do with the 4 across seating, or is it just great design skills?

Design skills and the wheel asembly. Intamin does have atleast two four across seaters, Batman: The Escape and Flashback.
Peace, Love, and Rollercoasters.........we need more of all three.

Batman: The Escape??

Im sure he meant Superman:The Escape ... ;-)

As far as B&M trains go ... I'd love to ride those 8-across trains like on Oblivion or G5 used on a ride design like Medusa or Kumba ... that would really be something!

Imagine Raging Bull on a Floorless 8x2 train ...

Raging Bull, Apollos Chariot, Nitro ...

Actually, there is a Batman: The Escape. It's at Six Flags Astroworld. I don't know if it 4-across seating or not, though. Can anyone verify?

Also, S:TE has 4-across as well. It's 3-across in the front row each car, though, isn't it?

Batman The Escape is an Intamin Stand Up at Six Flags Astroworld. It originally was at Six Flags Magic Mountain, then Six Flags Great Adventure, and then Six Flags Astroworld

That was back when Walt and Claude worked for Intamin as well. Same as Flashback

Batman: The Escape is four across. I believe the coaster was originally located at SFMM.
