I would imagine that trims now a days can be controlled by a computer program. 30 MPH over the top of a hill sounds pretty quick, comparatively.

1) Milkglass candy dishes with jelly-filled candies that are decades old and permanently stuck together.
2) Liniment.
3) Early-bird specials.
4) Complaints about how they never see the grandkids.

This is some ride that some kid made in NoLimits based on nothing more than a top-down layout sketch in a magazine. Apart from vaguely following the right path and being a B&M hypercoaster, this is NOT what's coming to KI. I give the guy credit for trying to dream up what the ride will be like, but advertising it as the 2009 B&M Hypercoaster is extremely misleading.

Brach's caramels (or is it carmel? Does arguing the difference become a vs. thread and a violation of the TOS?) and dentures DO NOT mix. I don't think Brach's caramels and teeth mix.

Hmmm, I'll eat Brach's candies from time to time. So I guess that makes me older than old. Who wouldn't love buying candy by the scoop in the aisle of your local supermarket? BTW, anybody ever bought the "bulk" candy in the general store @ Knoebels?

Moosh, I'm presenting you with a Whitman's sampler @ PPP this year. In fact, I may buy it now and keep it in my car till then. :)

...as I sit here at work and currently have an Atomic Fireball disintegrating in my mouth reading a thread that has turned to the subject of candy...

Ok, so what are the differences from what will be the final product?

Yum! While you're at it, how about putting one piece of chocolate in your jeans pocket for a few months? It'll be all soft and warm by October, lol. ;)

Hey red track, and in the video it's a red coaster. Hmm..

http://coasterdynamix.com/forum.aspx?mode=thread&TopicID=1177

I find nothing to suggest that this this track is a diving coaster. In the video, it has straight track at the beginning of the lifthill. On the hypers brake runs, they have straight track. *** Edited 6/5/2008 10:05:34 PM UTC by Spinout***

Off the top of my head? B&M has done away with the pre-drop sections at the top of the lift. If the layout presented at the beginning of the video is correct, you can expect a drop similar to Behemoth where it curves at the bottom. Second, a short speed hill like the one that follows the overbank and to a lesser extent, the one following the MCBR, has never been done or even approached in any B&M hyper, so there's no reason to expect one for what's coming to KI. Third, we have photo evidence of some sort of splash-down pond being built at KI, an there's no hint of one, or even any low, flat track where one could be in the video.

The point of my post was that the creator of this track had no additional information regarding things like hill placement, hill heights, speeds, track shaping, etc., than are available to the rest of us. In short, he had the layout, knew that the most heavily rumored candidate was a B&M hyper, and extrapolated from there. The video is his own interpretation from there on, and should be treated as such. I'm not saying he didn't do a good job, I'm just saying that in terms of accuracy, it should be taken with a brick of salt, because there just isn't enough information out there to create an accurate (p)recreation. *** Edited 6/6/2008 3:23:21 AM UTC by BBSpeed26***

Well he did get the building for The Crypt in there so it is somewhat accurate. Whatever it turns out to look like it will be interesting to see if the video is anything close.

Ok, so your interpretation is just as much an interpretation as the creator's is. From the tone of your first post it sounded like you had more information than the 14 year old kid dreaming up his version on No Limits and posting it on YouTube.

BullGuy's avatar I would be overjoyed however, if that B&M dip found it's way onto this coaster. I think it adds a lot to the ride. Nitro and GA's Goliath would be infinitely better in my mind with a drop like Apollo or Bull. *** Edited 6/6/2008 6:47:59 PM UTC by BullGuy***

Amen....back seat of Raging Bull was my favorite because of the dip. It allows you killer air on the first drop. (or at least used to...I haven't ridden it in a LONG time)
