New Six Flags Georgia Coaster-B&M of Giovanola?

Monday, September 5, 2005 3:35 PM
Hey guys, long time not on the forums, been really busy moving into my new place, it's good being back on the boards

anyway, down to the point, I recently saw that Six Flags Georgia is getting Goliath, which is stated as a B&M. the pictures of the ride on their site (computer animated) have the same color scheme/appearance as Goliath and Titan at the SFMM and SFOT, but those were made by Giovanola. Did Gio. have to give B&M the right to use the appearance/did Gio have any rights to the ride? Does Gio. just provide track for B&M, or did they just start buiding rides with Anaconda?

This kinda confuses me, and again, it's great to be back.

I'm not big on the legal stuff, but my guess is Gio doesn't see a dime.

Giovanole doesn't exist anymore.

Their facility is right across the B&M building, and they used to make the track for B&M. But they also did a few projects on themselves (Goliath, titan, Anaconda). Looking at their experience with B&M, the similar track is no surprise...

Uhh, companies dont choose the colors the park does. Giovanola doesnt build coasters anymore. Gio builds the track for non-US B&Ms

EDIT: wow i got beat to it big time. *** Edited 9/5/2005 7:57:44 PM UTC by pkidelirium***

Shortly after Phantom's Revenge was built at Kennywood, Six Flags Darien Lake coincidentally (or not) repainted Viper with the same color scheme. Does Six Flags Darien Lake owe Kennywood or Morgan money because they used the same paint colors? I don't think so. You can't copyright a paint scheme for a roller coaster.
