Earlier today, La Ronde revealed its 2002 projects. Landscaping, new park entrances and some ride painting (  thebreak dance and Cobra among others ) and the name of the Inverted... The Vampire!

At least the name isn't Batman related!  While it's not an original name, I give credit for the park giving it a unique name that hasn't been over-used.

It is indeed a B&M mirror of Batman. But this park is so beautiful, I can't wait to visit again.

La Ronde is SF property, is it not? If so, then Kudos to SF for their first ever B&M invert that isn't themed to Batman. Way to be bold, guys. ;)

Wow!  I didn't realize that six flags didn't have any custom B&M inverteds.  I guess they really like that Batman clones.

The coaster will probably be re-themed to Batman when La Ronde gets a Six Flags makeover in the next few years.

No, Sea World is owned by the Busch Entertainment Corp. if I'm not mistaken.  I also believe that they own Sesame Place.

Sea World is owned by Busch, but they got the design from B&M.  its not SF property, its B&M property.

but this brings up an interesting question.  does SF do any of the designing for their rides?  for example, John Wardly works with the companies to design some of the coasters.  does SF do anything like this?  or do they just say we want this type of coaster, this tall, with this many inversions, and we'd like it to be in this area?

Le Monstre also needs better trains.  Those cars really are Monstres.

Yes, and I always get stuck in the same car as a couple of skinny 8 year olds.  This results in the operator having to painfully staple a fat old man to keep the eight year olds from flying out.
