The British Invasion has again started on US coasters, this time stopping at Dorney Park to ride the new B&M inverter, Talon. The Roller Coaster Club of Great Britain is stopping to ride 100 coasters throughout the US.

That's a first (to see the Brits liking something in America besides President Bush).

Some us do actually visit the US on a regular basis and have a few friends living over there. Its comments like the mindless one above that we don't give much for!

Hey, i'm a brit and you don't know how lucky you are in America!!! I'd love to go to some of the parks that you complain about! i'm not moaning but how much can you ask for! We have Nemesis and Oblivion, two great rides, but you have a never ending list of massive coasters that i would kill to go on so I think you're very lucky!! Not complaining, it's just I really wanna get to the states and get on the likes of Talon, Kumba, Mantis, Ac and RB, SOB and the list goes on!!! How did I forget Millie!!! But hey, I can dream!!!:)

The Talon proves that a coaster doesn't have to be the tallest or fastest to be great. It is truely a world class coaster and I believe it will be on many top ten lists in the coming year.

I'm from the UK and have just got back from the US after riding 100 coasters independtly of the Rollercoaster Club of Great Britain.

Talon was disappointing and well down the list of my favorite inverts. However, it's Dorney's best coaster, but that doesn't say much!

I think the more coasters you ride, the more critical you get and Talon did nothing for me!

I have to agree totally with Grant on this one.

I accompanied him to the US on a marathon 100 coaster Odyssey of our own. Batman The Ride, Alpengheist, Raptor and Nemesis all beat Talon hands down.

After travelling over 3000 miles to ride this much hyped up coaster I was very very disappointed with it. Yes it is smooth and fast but it has no character to it whatsover.

Come on guys if you are going to build a new inverted coaster make it a record breaker eh or at least give it something new for us to look forward to!!

Dont dream it, ride it!!
