Finally, the moment has arrived. Talon is operational and more fun than even I expected. Fourteen new photos and a quick ride review are featured in this ninth installment of RideZone's construction photos.

It's so funny, when people start talking about the downfall of B&M and nonsense like that, I'll show them these amazing photos. B&M are STILL the top coaster builders in the world.

Hey check me out, Im in the 8th picture up from the bottom, the pic with the caption that reads: "You spend a good portion of the ride sideways as seen here." I am the guy in the middle wearing sunglasses and a yellow shirt with the blue stripe.. Talon was aweseome! Smooth, intense, fast, plain aweomse! :)

Badnitrus, I don't think some people could have lasted without your animation of Talon!

I'm sure the invert Knotts gets will be superb, maybe the best, if Talon is any indication of Cedar Fair and B&M's commitment to making excellent rides.
