Well I Wouldn't say that Intamin is better than B&M. Intamins Get very smooth but they aren't too complex w/o being rough i.e. Eurostar very complex but very, very rough, i.e. superman:ROS(SFA,SFDL) if it had an anymore boring design i would swear its a kiddie coaster, but its very smooth.
So,after all of this B&M are even w/ intamin. Intamin not complex but mildly smooth & a big factor, cheap. B&M; Very smooth, very complex, But Very expensive
Those of you that think that a ride has to be bigger to be better don't appreciate the finer points of a rollercoaster. Rollercoasters don't have to be the tallest or fastest to be great. Take a look at the Raven. I agree with Setpoint when the say stop the insanity. They built a great in Carowinds that is recieving recognition, and I say more power to them. I think it is all well and good when a park breaks records with their rides, but I also like when a park takes a ride with otherwise unremarkable statistics and elevates it to something outstanding.
I love spicy food, but I want to be able to taste the food as well. I don't want my mouth numbed so that I can't taste anything, and I like my rollercoasters the same way. Give me some intensity, but also give something more than high speeds and g-forces.
Jeff, Eurostar is made by Giovanola. I wonder if that will ever make it to a permanent park?
I really would like to know if this ride will have a decent amount of speed in the barrel rolls. Volcano didn't do it for me, I felt like I was hanging to long though them. I shouldn't judge it since I rode Volcano only Once...in the front.
I do like the cobra roll in the rendering, though.
