Winter can be such an ugly time for coaster enthusiasts who don't live in Southern California or Florida. The fine folks at Dorney have been nice enough so far to offer us a play-by-play of the construction of Talon, their new inverted B&M coaster. God bless Walter, Claude and the Internet.
Knott's, WoF, and VF just keep hoping :) And as for Hershey......eat your heart out ;) I can't wait to return to work at Dorney this summer. I worked at Funzone Foods, right on the new Midway, Talon will be right behind our stand :)
Compare the first drop to batman's or montu's. it seems as though the first 90 degrees of the turn are at the top of the drop, and then the second 90 degrees or so are where the drop off occurs, which will make the drop feel more like a montu-raptor hybrid. looks delicious. hopefully this ride will be completely aggresive like alpie or montu, unlike those durn floorless peices of garbage of recent memory.
Awesome! The first drop is identical to Top Gun's (Carowinds) first drop. Top Gun's drop is absolutely incredible, better than on any other inverted ive been on. Talon's drop will be taller than Top Gun's also so it should be sweet.
