What park do u think will be the first, and if so will it be a four three or two across figuration of seats. And will they be raised seating.
I know i asked before but i cant find it.

A B&M woodie would stink! It'd be too smooth! ;)

Well, isn't that one of the signs of the end of the world? B&M wasting time on woodies? Other companies are talented at that, like CCI and GCI. B&M and many other companies are talented with steel, and lets keep them improving that instead of making woodies!
I hate noise in these message boards.

Good point tri, but i think we may see one in a couple of years since we are getting a flying now. Lets hope that SFMM or Cedar Point gets one, two parks that des[erately a Great Woodie to grace their skylines.

Hmmm, I don't know about that, man. Because they are building a flyer you think they will build a woodie? The flyer is just a modification to their inverts. B&M has a very interesting style. Nothing is a big departure, (with the exception of when they introduced Batman the ride). Follow their coaster lines. They slowly modify their existing designs, making them bigger, with new elements, etc. Nothing is usually radically different from what they have already done. Even their new products are variations or improvements on existing things. Floorless was a modification of their sit down design. The new flyer looks like it will be new trains on an inverted style ride. Going from what they have done to building a wood coaster seems like too big a jump from them. That just doesn't seem like their style.

I don't see it coming. B&M builds steel coasters, and although there are some steel companies that build woodies, like Intamin and Vekoma, and B&M built the trains for Psyclone, I think they are going to specialize in steel coasters and keep it that way. You never know though.

There's already one that they did with Intamin, look here (i mean, if they ARE right) http://www.coasterforce.com/psyclone.htm

Actualamente, Psyclone is a Dinn creation with B&M trains.

the thing is, B&M is never going to build a woodie
until park asks them to, and i have no idea why a park would request that, considering CCI is right now building the best coasters ever built, and they are pretty darned cheap, too.
Don't touch the watch.
