Now that's how you build a flying coaster! Absolutely amazing looking! :)

Have you ever considered that maybe it's not the park that's the problem, but YOU?

Amazing. The boarding and reclining looks so smooth compared to certain other rides. I can't wait.

Submit this one as news!

Awesome! Why do they always say it's the world's first flying coaster? That drives me nuts. It's not! Yarg! Okay, I'm better now. That ride looks really awesome! I love the way the seats tilt into the flying position. The floor lowers and they tilt into that position fast! Looks like Superman: Ultimate Flight should be pretty nice, too, seeing as it has more flying time than AIR.

Well, PGA said stealth was the world's first flying coaster, and it was actually the third. WHo cares?

I think I am going to be in the minority here but this ride doesn't look as intense as the Flying Dutchman. There is no real loops I saw or tight helixes. The one good thing is it looks like you are on your back a lot less than on the Dutchman. The lift should be interesting hanging in the harness.

The B&M flyers are going to be a big hit from the looks of this video. I can't wait to get on S:UF now either! Good thing it's only a 7 hr drive away. Doesn't seem as far as it did last year.

Kick The Sky. I, for one, agree. I think the loop and helixes on X-flight are the best part of the ride. Also, the Vekoma restraints are very comfortable and allow for good freedom of arm movement and great visuals.

Well, S:UF is going to have the pretzel loop so that looks like it is going to be an intense element. That might compare to the loop on Vekoma's flying coasters. But I have to agree that Vekoma's restraints and the ride itself is awesome.

-----------------
I can't think of a good signature.

All I can say is wow.... That thing looks even more amazing than I imagined, and how about those trains! That recline looks thrilling in itself!!

I'm proud to say Im one of the lucky few who will be experiencing both B&M Flyers this season, so its certainly a relief (yet no surprise) that the first of the two is up and running right on scheduel.

On a side note, while I really do hate to sound like I'm complaining, I was dissapointed at the apparent lack of current theming around the ride. I know that there is, or was, planned theming in the form of water effects and such, but I saw pretty much just dirt... I guess in my head I was just picturing that it would already have magnificent theming to the extent of Nemesis... I'm sure theming will arrive in due time...

Almost as dramatic a start as the Hulk!

Does anyone know if the second generation B&M Flyers will have a loop, or maybe even a Cobra Roll like all of the sit downs?

I am sure that B&M will come up with new elements as they go along. You got to start somewhere and what a beautiful start it was.
