B&M Dive Machines

Friday, December 8, 2000 10:01 PM
The only ones are Oblivion and G5 in Taiwan. Has anyone ridden them and what are they like? Any difference between them?

Arrow and B&M have a track gauge of 4ft. Does anyone know the gauge for the Dive Machine??

It's huge! Will B&M ever build one with inversions like in RCT?? Or they could contest the Arrow 64 seater Supertrain with their own made up of 16 rows of 8 across DM cars totaling 128 people! It would be very expensive but no lines guaranteed! Would suit a busy park like SFMM, IOA etc.

I have just ridden Oblivion. Its a good thrillride with a perfect dramatization of the drop. Sadly the fun ends after that, cause the machine doesnt offer more than this.
The G5 has no tunnel, the entrancé is located halfway up a mountain, so the design is absolutely the same (its a mirror image though).
I have not seen decent pictures of G5 showing the full drop, cause i would really like to see the complete drop.
Oh, i bet you know all this, i forgot i was posting to god ;)

LOL! Check out these pics on the park's website. http://www.janfusun.com.tw/world/plaza01-f.htm
Damn, I found some good pics of G5 a while ago and can't find them. That's one of the biggest problems with the net!

Has anyone seen the intro to this site? It's pretty good!

Look in the "New for 2000" section.

(Another thing easily found with a search of this site.)
