Talon looks great! Hopefully I can ride it this summer.

WOW! It's just like "Speed 2", only it's a bus instead of a boat!

Holy ****! This is going to be one of the most intense inverted coasters ever built! Most sit-down loopers don't get that close to the ground.

You've gotta love that helix being only 6' off the ground.

I was in Washington, D.C. last week. I could of gone on Hypersonic XLC but I was with my school. We drove to Penn and I was looking on a map how close Dorney Park is to Gettsberg. You don't care. Anyway, these photos are awesome.

I need a XXL shirt to wipe off the gallons of drool off my face.

So Talon is going to have a On-ride photo. I wish Dueling Dragons ahd an On-ride photo, but NO!!!

The photo with the people under the track is so FREALY low. What if you are 7'0 of taller! I hope their is a height limit! Same with the helix. Dag that is SO FREAKY LOW!

It's not often that I actually groan with pleasure when looking at pictures of coasters, but this one did it. I'm looking forward to my trip out there this summer, no doubt.

I've said it before, I'll say it again. Thanks, RideZone! Yours is among the best coaster sites on the Web.

Well, that does it. Those trains are the icing on the cake. This thing will rule the inverted coaster world!

This ride looks so cool. Lynch you said "its not that often i actually groan with pleasure." The color sheme: one of the best. The trains: probably the best looking and right behind thes is HS-XLC. The only thing that might be a problem is when this coasters colors fade, they are going to be almost as bad as what mantis did.
Anyway, great pics.

CP in 2002, get to the point

B&M!!!!!!!!!!! I guess this proves that they are the best company and will be for a long time! I mean look at these coasters this year, Talon, Nitro, and Wildfire. Not to mention SW5 next year. They must have had some sleepless nights.

As for Talon what is there to say.... Talon is just pure amazing. It's like Raptors evil brother or something. It has the same paint scheme just different colors and the same types of buildings except it's a lot more compacted. I can say this without any second thoughts, "Talon could quite possibly be the greatest looping coaster even designed."

Coaster Con will be a great convention. I hope I can make it. Talon will be a perfect ERT experience. Over an hour of ride time with barely a wait!
