What about bush gardens,sea world and Ioa? *** Edited 11/7/2005 11:17:43 PM UTC by crazy horse***
I can't see PKI wanting to build anything resembling Chang tho, considering they just took King Cobra out of operation.
Edit - This is not correct either. WoF does not have B&M currently. Correct? *** Edited 11/8/2005 3:15:08 AM UTC by Woodyman*** *** Edited 11/8/2005 4:16:18 AM UTC by Woodyman***
RCDB shows three announced so far for the U.S.: SFMM, SFOG, and WoF. Unless the author meant "North America" [which would then incorporate La Ronde's B&M] instead of U.S. then there's a fourth still coming. Correct?
edit - LOL woodyman...same thought, same time!

I am new to posting, but not new to the world of roller coasters, rumors, and the like...
I would only offer the following observation, based on the following quotation:
Clermont Steel currently is working on four new coasters for U.S. amusement parks. All Miller could say is that the four new rides will be in parks in 2006 that CURRENTLY HAVE B&M coasters.
Observation: Since Worlds of Fun doesn't currently have a B&M Coaster, I doubt Mr. Miller was talking about them. SFMM and SFOG certainly fit into these criteria.
So, if we disregard Worlds of Fun and LaRonde, then there may be 2 B&M Coasters being manufactured for US Parks that no one knows about.
So in analyzing the situation, I find that B&M has 66 Coasters World Wide. If we take out duplicates and those outside the US, here are the current parks that HAVE a B&M already. (Some parks have many but are only counted once)
Busch Gardens Tampa
Busch Gardens Williamsburg
Knott's Berry Farm
Paramount's Great America
SeaWorld San Antonio
Silver Dollar City
Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Six Flags Great Adventure
Six Flags Great America
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom
Six Flags Magic Mountain
Six Flags Marine World
Six Flags New England
Six Flags New Orleans
Six Flags Over Georgia
Six Flags Over Texas
Six Flags St. Louis
Universal Studios Islands of Adventure
Further breakdown of these parks will reveal that some have announced other plans for next year and some (like Tampa) had B&M love last year...
Busch Gardens Tampa (Probably not--Shreika last year)
Busch Gardens Williamsburg (?)
Cedar Point (Announced Already)
Dorney Park (Probably not--Hydra last year)
Geauga Lake (? Wildwater Kingdom Expansion?)
Hersheypark (Announced Already)
Knott's Berry Farm (Probably not--Silver Bullet 12/04)
Paramount's Carowinds (Announced Boomerang Bay)
Paramount's Great America (?Disk-O Coaster?)
SeaWorld Orlando (New Shamu Show / Kiddie Area)
SeaWorld San Antonio (New Shamu Show)
Silver Dollar City (New 'Fair' Area)
Six Flags America (? Water park expansion?)
Six Flags Fiesta Texas (?)
Six Flags Great Adventure (El Toro / Kiddie Nat'l Park)
Six Flags Great America (?)
Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom (?)
Six Flags Magic Mountain (Tatsu)
Six Flags Marine World (?)
Six Flags New England (a “family ride” and a “teen ride”)
Six Flags New Orleans (Probably not--Hurricane damage)
Six Flags Over Georgia (Goliath)
Six Flags Over Texas (Flat Ride Package)
Six Flags St. Louis (Dungeon Drop / Kiddie area?)
Universal Studios Islands of Adventure (?)
So, here are the question marks for next year (if all assumptions are correct, which is NOT likely):
1. Busch Gardens Williamsburg
3. SFGreat America
5. SF Marine World
6. Islands of Adventure
Just some fun observations...(sorry so long) *** Edited 11/8/2005 4:09:32 AM UTC by ArmsUp***
But what do I know?
Who knows, alot of parks could still release plans late.
Edit - It also states that the 4 they are working on will be going to parks which already have a B&M coaster so : SFMM, SFog.
WoF doesn't already have a B&M. So there is still a 2 mystery B&M's being made if you look at it that way. *** Edited 11/8/2005 4:19:26 AM UTC by j_o_e_y__***
But yes, those ARE clearly the four referred to...even though Patriot Park (TM) currently has zero B&Ms.
No new coasters will be "magically materializing" though? Bummer. Unless you get paid to build them I suppose... :)
