Moosh, on April 1, 2010 Kennywood will be adding an LSM rollercoaster. if you look at the track, you can tell it is not B & M, because it is not rail, cross-section box design. I can tell you that B and M will be making a LSM ride with their signiture track ( search google images if you don't understand) it would be great if you could find the date or place of the b and m ride

Yeah but you have to get in a time machine and go back before the Incredible Hulk was built to speculate on this ;)

Incredible hulk was good, w/ 0-40 sec launch, but it was tires, not magnets. LSM technology can create more speed than tire launch, but not near the acceleration that pressurized air creates!! my point is this could be different!!!

I thought B&M itself had very little to do with Hulk's launch, but that could be another rumor.

Welsome to CoasterBuzz. This is hilarious, especially...

Where did you "hear" that "b and m" where going to use LSM,s?

Most people on CoasterBuzz have been around for a long time, and that means that they have a lot of knowledge about coasters. There's no need to patronize us, and there's no need to make up some stupid rumor that seasoned enthusiasts can easily see right through.

Here is some friendly advice. Kindly lurk around for a while and see how we all interact with each other before making some goofy thread about what you heard. We need sources, or we won't believe you.

You guys are harsh.

But kinda funny sometimes. (Don't let it go to your head, Moosh.)

I thought so, too. Of course, piling on NOW would just be cruel...

April 1?

(after a few minutes......)

I do recall B&M stating that the launch was something (at that time) they were not interested in doing... and that Hulks launch was a third party's work, not theirs.

HAH! I just got the April 1, 2010 joke too... little slow(er than normal) this morning.
