Several yellow and red track segments alongside bright orange supports have arrived for Six Flags Magic Mountain's new B&M flying coaster. Inside the park, ground clearing continues near the Roaring Rapids/Samurai Summit area.

Ride parts have been on site for quite awhile already, and a lot of sites have had photo updates. I'd wondered what took so long for it to become a news item ;). Woooooooooo

At 10:40PM CDT on Friday 9/30/05, I spoted track going west on I-70 at I-635 in Kansas City, KS. The track was wraped under tarps and took the distinctive shape of B&M track. So it appears that the track is taking a central route to Six Flags Magic Mountian.

Kingda, El Toro and now Tatsu. Is this confirmed? Six Flags feels all the cool coaster names have been used, so now Six Flags is reliant on imported names. So will Six Flags not use a coaster name if it is used in another park? Is that why they keep recycling current Six Flags coaster names or importing foreign ones?*** This post was edited by rc-madness 10/3/2005 12:18:30 PM ***

I believe both Nitro and Silver Bullet already support B&M mag. brakes... anyone know of anymore B&M coasters that have them?

From the "feeling" of the brakes on Nitro, I would say that they are NOT magnetic.

I don't know for sure though. I thought Silver Bullet was the only ride so far by B&M to use them.

Nitro has magnetic brakes and friction brakes - it's the first set of brakes you go through on the brake run, and it slows the train down pretty abruptly before the friction brakes bring it to a near stop further down.

Silver Star and Sheikra use them. Silver Star's are pretty pointless as theres a harsh friction brake straight after them. They will be useful on a flyer as the prone position is one of the most uncomfortable to be braked in.

Maybe that was the track for the WOF B&M coaster.

Vernon the track was heading your way. The WOF track is all here already. I made the spoting miles west of WOF.

The construction closed down a game area. Supposivly 6 weeks untill that area reopens. So maybe around then we will get close to ride compleation. The park is going to be made into one large circle instead of the 8 shape it used to have. Samuri summet will no longer go though to Roaring rapids. Since Orient Express has been ripped out for the new ride and the easy way to Ninja is closed its going to force people to have to walk up that steep pain in the butt hill. Tough luck for the handicaps i guess.
