Intamin Stand-Up Coasters? Where At?

I knew nothing about Intamin Stand-Up coasters until I went to the Intamin site, and seen it on there. Could somebody tell me where?

Batman:The Escape at SFAW. It is rumored to be a target for removal so you might want to catch a ride ASAP.

La Ronde's Cobra is also an Intamin standup, not sure if there are any others besides that one and Batman: The Escape.

Don't forget Shockwave at Drayton Manor, the only stand-up with a Zero-G Roll.

I never realised that Intamin stand up trains were four across. I thought the only one were B&M's(excluing dive machines which are 8 across) and 4d's.

Intamin's "Space Diver" coaster (Flashback @ SFMM, Z-Force @ SFGAm and SFOG) is also a four across. I believe there are some others in Europe that are four across.

Yes, also Eurostar is 4 across seating. You can pretty much tell what influence B&M had on Intamin with the 4 across seating.

Le Cobra at La Ronde is the only one that I've ridden. It's a bit of a head banger.

Intamin standups are still a product in the Intamin catalog today.

Really...I assumed they quit building stand-ups years ago, so that's great news to us stand-up fans (no pun intended). Any idea when they built their most recent one?

Actually, its the other way around. B&M split off from Intamin, and they were already designing 4-across rides while still part of Intamin (i.e. Z-Force, Batman the Escape (formerly Shockwave at SFMM) and Cobra).

The stand-up at Intamin's site has square box tubing track. Is this an Intamin or a picture of a B&M.

Intamin used box spined track before B&M.

only because B&M (the people) were working for intamin at the time and came up with the idea.

It doesn't matter if Mr. Bolliger and Mr. Mabillard did come up with the idea of box-spined track (which of course there is no proof of - it could of been Giovanola or anyone working at Intamin for that matter). What does matter is that Intamin used it first – for example on Shockwave at SFMM in 1987 before B&M (the company) existed.
