Jeff's avatar Wow! That S-curve at the end is nuts! I love that goofy looking support over the road at the helix. Very cool!

So how long before everyone says, "I want one of those here, please!"

O my, B&M looks like that they have outdone themselves once again.  The asethetic beauty of theri coasters, but especially this one is mindblowing.  The S-Curve, the helices, they are perfect.  I'll say it again!

I want one of those here please!

janfrederick's avatar I think the lack of supports on the lift (4 or 5 at most) makes it look rather elegant.

Does anyone else notice that the new B&M coasters are getting a little loopy with the steepness of their lifts? (the new SFNE coaster being my other case in point). Maybe it's just the angle of those photos, or maybe it's because the first hill of the S.S. is over the road whereas Nitro and Apollo's Chariot are hidden in the woods, but that coaster just looks like any coaster fan's dream! I used to think "beemers" were more "fun," than thrilling, but then I rode Nitro. Can't wait to ride the Purple thing (whatever it's called) at SFNE!

the drop looks like it has NITROS steepness to it. one question, what if a car or tram hits the supports for the ride in the parkinglot? it looks like it could happen.

It's not a  highway, it's just a little road that park security or whatever can use. There is no way that could happen, and if it really happened, those there wouldn't happen anything..

Question, what part of the ride is this?  It must be near the end because of it's relationship to the blue coaster in the background.  It's definately not the helix after the break run.  That blue one is visible in several other photos also to give a reference.

@Z-Man: The picture shows the "incredible" s-curve after the last drop. http://home.nexgo.de/coaster01/sista/silverstar04.jpg shows the complete section under the lift hill (drop / s-curve combo).

Z-Man, the s-curve is the last element on Silverstar before the brake run...

Wow! Silver Star looks wicked!!!! It looks to be a little different than what a lot of it's recreations on NoLimits made it. I thought a another hill was going to be in place of the mid couse brakes and the mid course brakes were going to be at the top of upward helix thingy.

Well anyways...... Looks great!! Look for one meaner, taller and faster at Six Flags Marine World in 2003!

I wish.............
