B&M design philosphy

Tuesday, August 29, 2000 9:47 PM
I think I just figured it out,
B&M designs not only the ride but equally designs the asthetics of the coaster. When looking at one of their coasters from the ground and you see these insane inversions and how the entire thing blends together as one, you can't help but wonder what those same inversions and manuvers must feel like on the coaster, likewise remebering what the ride was like while watching the trains swoop through the track, thus overall enhancing the ride experiance.
Let me know what you think

I suspect that it is partly a visual thing. Cobra rolls, for example, aren't the most intense inversion I've ever been through, but they sure do look cool!

I think the inverted definately have an effect from the ground.

How awesome does the Incredible Hulk look walking into Marvel Super Hero Island.The huge cobra roll and loop over the water and then under the bridge is as fun to watch as it is to ride.

B&M's just make you look back on a ride you just went on and say " I want to go on again"

Magnum is sinking:

If BKF'S line extends into the extra queues, it is neat how you get so close to the infamous high G turn and cobra roll. Also, at the entrance how you walk through it.

Now if only they took care of it.

When I went they had just finished replacing a couple of wheels on at least one of the trains. I am kinda glad I didn't get to wait in that queue. I did end up waiting the equivalent however as someone had an accident in on of the trains (something I left out in my TR).

Now if they would only stop trying to fill up the queues.

On my most recent trip to the Point, July 31 - Agust 1, I took a small disposable camera. I noticed that I seemed to be taking a lot of pics of the Raptor and Mantis accomplishing their many inversions, and I guess that the reason may be because of the fact that all of the twists and turns, rolls and loops look so extreme (when they're not) so it compels people to photograph them(like me :)). Any way, just a thought.

I have to agree with hockeyman about seeing the Hulk as you enter the park going over the bridge that goes under the launched hill. I think that Riddlers Revenge's line is pretty neat having the trains going over your head all the time. Another thing I like about B&M sitdown, floorless, and stand-up coasters, is that when you watch them it almost looks as the train is going in slow motion. I think it looks that way because of the constant speed throughout the ride and large and tall inversions they do.

I'll never forget the first time I saw Kumba on T.V. back in 1993. I thought that thing was SO innovative and just so extreme looking. I had never seen anything like it before. But now B&M's design needs a makeover. I mean the rides themselves are great but just the whole look of the rides need a change. Even Vekoma and Arrow have changed the way their rides look.
