B&M Six Flags Question...

Tuesday, March 21, 2006 12:14 AM
Alright i heard that B&M signed a contract with Six Flags and Six Flags has to build __ Number of B&M Coasters by ____ Year. Does Anyone know what the details of the contract are?

Oh ya, also when did this contract start? If there even is one. *** Edited 3/21/2006 5:15:43 AM UTC by The Grinchâ„¢***

I believe the word 'bogus' appears in there on multiple occasions.
Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

Actually, Mark Shapiro recently stamped "VOID" on the contract.

He's decided to go with the new company, B&A (Bugs & Acme) instead.

If you really think about it, SF and B&M have a great relationship. Of the 3 major coaster projects SF is undertaking this year, all of them are B&M coasters. Of the last ten or so coaster projects SF has done, most have been by B&M.

They may have had some sort of contract, but then again, apparently everyone has some type of cotract like that according to message boards. Even so, the new ownership would probably void out that contract anyways

Basically don't believe everything you hear or read until you see actual proof.

The last 10 coaster projects for SF:


Tatsu - B&M

Goliath (SFoG) - B&M

Goliath (La Ronde) - B&M

El Toro - Intamin


Kingda Ka - Intamin

Pandemonium - Gerstlauer


Superman el Ultimo Escape - Morgan

Wile E Coyote Canyon Blaster - Chance

Ragin' Cajun - Zamperla

Half Pipe - Intamin

That makes 3 B&M and 3 Intamin coasters for the last 10. Without this year's attractions, SF hasn't built a B&M since 2003 (but they built 3 that year also).

So B&M does build a bunch of coasters for SF, but that doesn't mean that there is some sort of contract to build any number over specified years. They build exciting, RELIABLE, people eaters. If you have the money, that seems like a good investment to me.

Or maybe you're right and SF has a contract to build three B&M's every 3 years. ;)
