B&M Coasters Loop Immediately After The First Hill

Thursday, July 5, 2001 12:43 PM
Every single B&M coaster I have been on, after the first hill you immediatly go into a loop. Is there any B&M coaster out there that doesn't do this???????

Hulk: Launch - Zero G Roll - Cobra Roll - Vert. Loop

Alpengeist: Drop - Immelmann - Vert Loop.

And of course all 3 B&M Megas, no inversions at all.

What about Dueling Dragons? Do they have loops immediately after their first drop? (My memory of those is foggy)

Another "odd" one is Great Bear. Lift Hill, Helix, First Drop (not counting the little one into the helix), then Loop.

The only B&M loopers I can think of that DONT are, Hulk, WILDFIRE, Alpie, and Oblivion....

I dont think speed coasters or vertical coasters count!

YOU'RE ALL WRONG.....NO B&M coaster loops immediately after the lift. Instead, they for some reason have to have an annoying "dip and flat" before the drop (some have a brake here). So the loops are actually the second element!!!!!

Um, that's a true statement, but in using common sence, I think he meant after the initial drop. Not the very first thing.

If love is like a rollercoaster, doesn't that mean you should be happy ALL of the time? ;)

Nobody mentioned Great Bear which starts with the elevated helix after the lift.

Ice Dragon goes into an over-banked turn I believe,

Fire dragon goes into an immelman, however

Well, if you want a big loop, you need a big hill right before it, so it only makes sense that large vertical loops immediately follow drops. It's not a rule, but it's common practice.
