Cannot wait to hear what Fred Bolingbroke has to say about the mechanical failures on X and whether there are plans for more 4-D in other parks, yet? i hope his comments are in depth and not just "no comment" :)

The interview is already done, and I think you know better than to expect any president to start rattling off information about trade secrets and information that is, to a large extent, controlled by SFMM, not Arrow.

B&M will have roller coasters.  What did you expect? :-)

Yeah, but I think everyone wants to see if they have a flying car, and if the colors would fit into AIR. If they have one, and the colors don't look right, the speculation on where it will go is going to be wild!

Well, seeing as B&M has announced that the trains for AIR, or any of their flying coasters for that matter, will not be revealed until the coasters opening day, I don't think we will see them at the trade show.  Sorry to ruin it.

Coaster131-

When and where did B&M announce that? I'd be interested in seeing a direct quote or press release regarding that.

Jeff, keep a heads up for Kennywood's new ride.  Zamperla is supposed to have it on display there to show the extent of their themeing.  (That is, if they have it done in time, which you never know with Zamperla.)
