A hyper would really complement SFOG coaster collections. But on the other hand, how sweet would it be if SFoG got the first American B&M flyer, I doubt though that they make two prototypes in the same year. A hyper would be quite amazing!!
the hyper would be great. but over half of us seem to believe theres a height limit, which we cannot prove either way. so that makes the hyper questionable.
The floorless would be alright, but why would Sfog start on a floorless so early when with all other coasters they build start much later on. I cannot see why they would be starting so soon.
then we come to the flyer...It would make sense to build it early to get all the kinks out by building early. Then they can wait about a week to open it to let AT have their glory. I believe this is becoming more and more the final answer to the mystery of what Six Flags over Georgia is getting...
Those red I-beams could be used to support the lift, like on some other B+M coasters (Batman). Also, there are tags on the re-bar (for the footings) that have all the information about where that particular re-bar should be placed, the guage and weight, and under the "description" blank, it simply says "Six Flags - B &M Coaster." I wish it was a hyper, though.
SFOG Superman ride of steel, most likely clone of SFDL's Definately not B&M the things are too small. Were is ride man when we need him. He could tell us. I am gonna say Intamin Hyper. ----------------- SFMM Season Pass 80$ drink 10$ ripping of six flags by coming back 100 times Priceless......

Especially what The New news is today about the captiol money lose i dont think they could afford a medium sized B&M hyper for 19 million, when you could get a better, and longer Intamin for 7 million less. Also B&M is pretty busy with all the coasters for Europe, and Asia, they can only take so many orders. ----------------- SFMM Season Pass 80$ drink 10$ ripping of six flags by coming back 100 times Priceless......

*IF* this is indeed a B&M coaster it would make sense to start construction this early no matter *what* the type. B&M seem to have of late started building ALL their coasters way ahead of time. As a patron, I appreciate this as all their recent coasters here stateside have opened ON TIME and with minimal problems, no matter what park they were installed in. That's something that NO other (steel) coaster company can claim (not sure about CCI's track record). jeremy --quickly joining the ranks of B&M lovers

Oh man, if there is a red and blue flying train at the B&M booth next week I'm going to have to swing by Georgia next year! (I don't know what it's going to be, but man would it be nice to have a B&M flyer in the US soon!)
If the Tussauds have an exclusive deal for a while with B&M for the flyer, could it just be for Europe? I can see why they wouldn't want blackpool or another British park having a flyer soon, but what difference would it make to them (other than a little bit of bragging rights) if there was one on another continent?
When I think of the deals that they have made before w/ B&M one thing comes to my mind. This lost business on that ride type. Ex. Oblivion. Only one other one of its type comes to my mind. I believe this is because by time the block was over, the demand for these rides were gone. I have heard tussauds help design the concept. The best thing they could have done is put a ban on ones in Europe and get an extra amount for every other flyer built. One in the US shouldn't take that much if any away from AT. Only the diehard coaster enthuasiasts are going to fly over to AT to ride Air.
I dunno if there'll be a Flyer on show - wouldn't AT want to keep it a secret 'till AIR opens? Also who knows if they have exclusive rights like with Oblivion?
Has anyone considered it *might* be a medium-sized Floorless similar to SFNE's? (I'm still not 100% convinced it's a Floorless.) The groundwork indicates a similar layout. Also this would be cheaper than a Hyper.
Chris, if you edit your post more than once, it'll stuff up. Or use plain post for zero stuff-ups.
