If I worked for B&M they would have to change the name to B&M&B. ;) ------------- There are currently 11 coasters with the name Batman, 8 with the name Superman and 22 with the name Boomerang. Batman and Superman: The Ultimate Chiller Knight Flight Krypton Escape Ride.
So would you work for B&M, Intamin, or Vekoma? Make up your mind!
I would work for Arrow if X is a sucess, just because it's the closest company (major company for steel coasters.) Otherwise I would work for B&M. I love every coaster they made, even if I have not been on it. They all look great. Even Iron Wolf is great, I don't know why people don't like it. (Don't tell me it's too rough, that gives it personality) ------------- I hate noise in these message boards.
Either B&M or Intamin. I just love Intamin coasters! B&M Coasters are great too. But if I worked for B&M i'd have to give them more origonal designs, instead of the basic Loop, dive loop, Barrel Roll, Cobra Roll, then the 2 corkscrews. For intamin I would have to build more Loopers, because I dont see too many of them around. Just mainly Hypers and inverted coasters.
I'd work for either S&S because I love all their air powered projects, (and I love Utah and Lagoon). Or Arrow because I think there are going to really hit it off wit X. ------------- - http://CHZ.8m.com
For wood I would have to say Custom Coasters. What can I say? I love all of their rides even though I haven't riden hardly any of them. They're all unique and from what I hear, they are quality! For steel I would have to say Vekoma. WHY? Because I think they would be able to use an extra peron or two. B&M and Intamin seem to be on roll (heaven forbid I screw that up:)), but Vekoma is starting to become a little better by the looks of things. This year they have so many orders for rollercoasters...it's amazing!!

I would work for Intamin. Why? Because steel roller coasters can do more than wooden roller coasters, so I would have freedom to do basically anything with the track. Plus, woodies are more fun to make and Intamin can make those too. Plus, I love the box track. ------------- Bull rides:23 Shockwave rides:14
I would definately be arrow. Its a company thats gonna have a new golden age very soon. and there is no way im about to move to europe to work for a coaster company. I like coasters but i like the good ole U S of A a little better
I would go for CCI!!! I gotta mechanical engineering degree from the University of Illinois so I could build coasters! I deliver groceries for Peapod now! I had interviews with OD Hopkins and Universal Hollywood. I gotta personal message from Peter Schnabel of Premier when I sent him my resume when I was in school. I also talked to Dana Morgan over the phone once. I was so nervous, but he was way cool!
It's so tough doing those jobs. And it's like this: would you rather design them with all the responsibility or ride them as a fan? I'm glad I chose fan :> I did engineering for over 2 yrs after school and hated it. Delivering groceries is much better believe it or not! I don't have to be there at 8am and I don't have to wear a tie!
But if I did... It would be CCI. When I was 12 I sent a letter to Charlie Dinn asking him what I needed to do to build coasters. I guess he was so busy, so his daughter (now the pres of CCI!!) sent me a reply letter. This was so long ago! It was very nice! When I tried to contact her 10 years later for an interview, she was so busy I couldn't even talk to her! Good though, the rides she built are worth it! I'm perfectly happy being a coaster fan. I never followed up too much with the interview, it cut into my riding time!
But rock n roll! I'm sick of getting kicked in the face in the pit! I'll ride the coasters when I'm on tour!
BTW, I'm glad I never got jobs with Hopkins or Premier, ug!
Anyone wanna buy my BS in ME? hehe :> ------------- Ow! My lap bar IS down all the way.
id work with GCI. I always thought it would be really cool to turn a outdated coaster like MS into a masterpiece. They are also one of the only wooden coaster companies that rebuild and create, IMO, the best looking layouts but not the best rides.

I agree with most people here in that I would gladly work for any major coaster manufacturer. I'd like to work with B&M just because of the number of projects they have, and they varied types they've perfected. As an electrical engineer, I wouldn't really be the best candidate for designing the ride itself, but I guess I could work on designing the control systems.
