B&M Portable Mega Coaster

Thursday, August 1, 2002 12:22 AM

This site,Roller Coaster Art Museum, lists a B&M portable mega coaster under the portable category. Can someone tell me what this really is?

I was gonna' say Dragon Kahn, but that looks nothing like it, especially with two gigantic loops and no cobra roll, helixes, corkscrews, and the brake run that goes throught the middle of the loop. IF that were Dragon Kahn, there would be a drop going through the loop and a midcourse brake run. What is this thing?

Also, can someone tell me if this is these old or new Mr.Twister. It looks like the old one, but I see Sidewinder in the back.

I've that pic printed out from years ago. Also wondered if that was DK or not. Note the file ends with 'port1.'

Very strange.

Port stands for portable I thought, but this sight is much older than Dragon Kahn. They still have Mantis and Great Noreaster' underconstruction, Riverside(beofre SFNE), Adventure World(before SFA) and Old Elitch Gardens(before SFEG) and Reino Adventura(before Six Flags Mexico) are up their. Midnbender is still brown, Top Gun at PKI is still red, and T2 is still pink and red. Guega Lake, Darien Lak, and Wyandot Lake are still owned by Funtime.

Port could also mean Port Aventura which is where Dragon Khan is located. Even though it is listed in the portable listing on the site, it could be an error on the part of the website.

Although it almost looks like the ride is in Japan somewhere it is hard to verify 100% for sure since I have not been to Port Aventura.

Yes, that pic's actually an edited shot of Dragon Khan. I saw that a year or two ago. Just a joke ;)
