Personally, I'd rather see duelling Schwartzkopf shuttle loops. Let's see, the old Tidal Wave is available...any others?
where is PKD's King Kobra? isn't it lying disassembled at some other paramount park? you could probably pick up a couple of these cheap and ... uh ... melt them down for scrap metal ... and then buy a cool rollercoaster.
jan... I have ridden Vekoma and B&M and I enjoy the B&M a lot more than the Vekoma any day.
I think that CP's next B&M will be a flier but I am not sure that they will do a dueling. But CP never lets us down and always comes up with something new. I am not rulling it out just thinking cautiosly on that rumor.
My dad likes to use "the two Os", which is kinda clever if you think about it.
You know, not that I have anything relevant to add to any of these posts. ;)
Sounds like a cool idea with a lot of potential, but I think the Flyer concept needs to be cleaned up a bit and the kinks worked out before we take it on such a grand scale. Three or four years later, and the B&Ms and Vekomas alike still do have their share of operational concerns.

Speaking of trees I think a wood coaster would do the park the best. Not a record breaker but a ride like Ghost Rider located behind Wicked Twister and that curves into the parking area. forming an L shape.
