B&M To Make Stand-Up Inverted?!?

Monday, February 12, 2001 12:29 PM
I've been lookin around on the net and have seen various rumors that B&M is building a stand-up inverted. I remember hearing something like this about 4 months ago at sfgadv. i had my alpengeist shirt on and the ride op at medusa said that 'If i like floorless and inverted, B&M are building something better'. I thought and searched and saw nothing of the sort anywhere. But sites here and there say how B&M are developing this new type. Anyone else know? This would be pretty cool, standing up with nothing below you!

You no how weird that sounds?Anyway, I think they would have to put to tracks one below and one on top. Think about the G forces!:) -james *** This post was edited by # 1 coaster fan on 2/12/2001. ***

*sigh* Not the stand-up-inverted rumors again! Sheesh...It's not possible. The forces on the legs would be too great to be standing up. Just immagine riding Raptor or Alpengeist in Inverted stand up cars, it just won't work, sorry.

Well, I'm sure there would be a floor if they went thru with this...I think they could do it if they considered a bunch of things.
