B&M Flying Coasters Here In the States?

Thursday, August 23, 2001 6:15 PM
do you think a B&M flying coaster would ever come here to the states, my guess is yes, but b&m and alton towers probably signed that damn contract saying that they have the b&m flying for 2 years and no one else could build one. i would love one here in my homepark of great adventure.

well if the B&M flyers turn out like the B&M inverteds then we can expect to alot in the future.

B&M can not go wrong . They are going to make the flying coaster a common sight. They sat by and watched vekoma and their duchman fall apart and now their gonna bring us one hell af a ride. i think by 2003 their will be five B&M fliers in the us

well the flying coaster are taking shape just like the inverted ones.  verkoma came out with the SLC, in this case the flying dutchmans.  then B&M came out with there version and nothing been the same since then.

Jephry...the reason that Dive Machines weren't mass produced was because of cost.  For such a short little coaster (lift, turn, dive, fan turn, brakes), it cost a fortune!  I don't know exatly how much Oblivion or G5 cost, but the trains that B&M created for this ride alone cost a pretty penny!

I would see one being put in at IOA, BG, SFGAdv... Because they seem to like B&M to build their coasters. I think that AT signed another contract with them not to produce the flyer.

Actually, B&M came out with the first inverted coaster (Batman at SFGAm) in 1992. Vekoma didn't introduce the SLC until 1994 (El Condor at Six Flags Holland).

I think we will see a B&M flyer in the U.S. soon. The flying coaster isn't a one trick pony like the dive machine, so I can see more parks putting them in.

The word out of IOA is that ANOTHER B&M will be going in there, at least that's what the signs say.  Whether it will be a flyer, a floorless, or something else is up in the air.  Since they have a sit-down (Hulk) and double-inverted(DD), options for more B&M's become limited...and SeaWorld, <10 miles away, HAS a floorless, so we'll have to wait and see....

I was just gonna set that straight myself. The Batman was the first inverted or SLC, they are the same just different names. I think if they signed a contract with Alton Towers it is more like limiting B&M to not making another flyer within a certain region or distance to Alton. They can't stop them from building them here, since most parks here are not competition with Alton. I believe they will be building some here soon, perhaps in a year or two, but who knows?

My guess would be SFGAM. They have a great working relationship with B&M.

First B&M Coaster - Iron Wolf

First Inverted B&M - Batman

First Hyper-Twister - Raging Bull

Look for the Flying coaster to make it's home at SFGAM.

I wouldn't be shocked to see one at a Busch park. Busch seems to have a very good relationship with B&M, and I think all of their parks except SWT are due another coaster. I wouldn't be shocked to see SWC get one, to start with a splash, just as SWO did with Kraken.

May I remind you all that Alton and B&M have techniclly been working on this coaster for 7 years which means I am pretty sure Alton will have a deal with this coaster, as If I was a manager at Alton Towers or if I was John Wardley , I would be very pissed if I found a park in America getting the same kind of coaster just a year later or even on the same year.

I wouldnt worry, I am sure you Americans will get a B&M Flyer, But you have to understand that another Exclusive Contract between Alton and B&M will be a Fair Deal this time simply because of the fact they have been working on it for so long.

I agree with that statement, although I also think that Six Flags Great Adventure will receive one that same season or the season after.  After all, they have the second Batman: The Ride (1993), Medusa - the first floorless coaster (1999), and Nitro.
As for seeing these things all over the place, I highly doubt that will happen.  Expect this new design to be no cheaper (probably more expensive, actually) than any other B&M coaster, so the chances of them becoming the next Boomerang are pretty slim.
