I absloutely love it.
CW finally gets a new, huge, brand-spankin new B & M Hyper coaster, and all people can do is pick it apart and find things to hate about it.
Just be happy for CW!
Who cares is it "looks" like a Goliath? How many B & M coasters "look" like others from other parks/chains?
Now being from Ohio, I am a little miffed this went to CW and KI got ol' X-Flight.
And because this is coming to canada, you will notice that we wont take it for granted. Sorry but it had to be said. I have repeated myself countless times, that it is so difficult for us to travel all the way into the states and ride a brilliant coaster. When do I get to travel to and from just like that, oh, every four years. This is huge and we will love every minute of it. Sometimes people need to take a step back and realize what they are given and stop being so selfish.

I noticed that in the animation... not cool, but based on B&M's past history of their coasters, they don't use their trims all that much (sans Mantis) where it'll really affect the outcome, as even the mid-course brakes are kept to a minimum.
The trims on Raging Bull really changed the ride. It was much better before they were installed. It's very noticable that they are used.
None of them compares to the *forceful* airtime delivered by SFoG's monster...the first B&M that made me re-think my opinions on their trains. Now they're re-designing the trains?
While I still think the Beemers are mostly over-engineered, PCW might very well come out of this with one heck of a powerful ride...if it were for ME (and not for a park), I'd get it in the contract that the ride would be free of trims... ;)

What's complicated about the trains? It's like any other two-bench car ever built, only the two seats in the back row are a little spaced apart. Who cares?
Longer trains it would seem to me would allow for those longer airtime hills found on the Intamin rides, instead of those pointy things you find on the B&M's with the traditional trains.
Would the seatbelts be a first for B&M? I've only been on Nitro and Canuck Goliath and don't remember any seatbelts.
Nitro used to have seatbelts when it first opened. They've since been removed.
These are just two bench trains with a gap between the back seats. Queue up in pairs and walk across. One line for each row.
What's the big deal? *** Edited 8/27/2007 9:54:13 PM UTC by Chaindog***
To being an "us" for once - instead of a "them".
Are you just afraid that your mother won't be able to sit beside you and hold your hand on the tallest and fastest coaster ever built in Canada?
I can't believe how many people are already writing this thing off. I think some of you will never be happy until someone builds an exact copy of Superman at SFNE.
What!!? How could somebody disrespect SFNE and clone their coaster? That would be stoopid. I've already been on that ride. I want something new ;-)
The only problem with Behemoth is that it is too far north and I might not make it up there for a few years.

Ha ha, even after being bought by Cedar Fair...Kings Island continues to get denied from getting a new B&M.
um, I don't think this is the only new coaster CF is building for next year. If there's any more (and how can there not be?), they'll probably be announced in September or October. Kings Island will get its big new coaster - maybe next year, maybe not, but it'll be soon.
