I will. Kennywood, you must be ignorant. I dont mean that in a negative way, I mean that in the textbook definiton of 'uninformed'. First of Cedar FAIR is a more profitable business than the largest theme park chain (and this is comming from an SF brat). Second, Talon looks like it has the most intense B&M invert layout since B:TR and should be a fantastic ride. Third, Dorney already has a hyper, a darn fine one from what I've heard. Go read a book or watch a few videos and get your facts straight. Otherwise, just sit back, relax, and enjoy the sites (websites that is). lata, jeremy ---who is starting to remember the pyromania in the days of his youth...
Those pictures just make me wish I was working there more. Who knows maybe where I'm working now will slow up and I can get there before its finished. Just curious to know how many people rode Talon already according to their track record. ;)
------------- 2000 stats: 135 coasters in 26 parks Not Too Shabby For A Summer
This is the first B&M coaster I've seen with painted rails recently. Although it looks nicer, I think the decision not to paint the rails is smart based on how much paint gets rubbed off by the wheels on most coasters. As for the color scheme, I think it is one of the best ever. I've gotten pretty sick of all the purple and yellow colors we've seen of late on B&M rides.

The colors are actually yellow, orange and blue. However, the blue is very close to a purple. Some people will probably call it a purple when they see it (depending on the light). However, the color is technically called BLUE for the record.
I think the colors work very well together, especially as we see more of the ride assembled. I too am glad they went with something more unique instead of the same color sets everyone else has been using. The view from Hamilton Blvd is fantastic as you approach the park, Talon really stands out and gets your attention, even now before it is finished.
