I was at Six Flags Great America on Monday July 5th, and while I was waiting in line for Superman, I overheard one of the employees (rideop) tell the guy in front of me about the new ride for next year. I then proceeded to ask this rideop, whose name was Kyle, about the ride. He said it was almost confirmed that a B&M 4-D ride called Tumbleweed was scheduled to go behind Viper over by Space Shuttle America. Kyle seemed pretty sure, and said that he had connections with a bunch of the people in upper management.

WOW! It must be true because that's what the Dippin' Dot's guy said too... ;) Honestly, rideops aren't any more "in the know" than most of us are. As far as I
know, that is. :)
EDIT: Welcome to CoasterBuzz! Just a forewarning, rumors don't generally fly around here. Make sure you read the TOS carefully and all should go well. :) *** Edited 7/8/2004 4:24:03 AM UTC by MarimbaGuy87***

I"m sorry, but I'm not going on a ride named, "Tumbleweed"
Please let that be a joke, because that is really gay, and I KNOW gay.
HaHa, pardon my french....but that's a really lame name.

Was it the Dip N Dotz guy?
. . .Don't hold your breath. Kyle is probably full of Shista.
While rumers aren't really welcome here, I sure hope the random park employee is right and GAm adds B&M #6.
EDIT: They beat me to it. *** Edited 7/8/2004 4:27:46 AM UTC by Word***

Welcome to Coasterbuzz....I agree with that Marimbaguy said. We're happy to have you here, but just so you know, rumor discussion isn't really a good thing here....it usually turns into junk discussion 99.999% which never comes close to being true.
It is nice to see that you can use the English language properly and spell correctly. That's better than 95% of the new members here...welcome aboard! :)

What's with all the B&M 4D rumors? B&M doesn't even make a 4D as far as I know. So why does everyone think they will make one?

Kyle part of that misconception was due to our fearless CBuzz leader. He had posted a link to the US Patent office in this thread. http://www.coasterbuzz.com/forum.aspx?mode=thread&TopicID=14777
He stated (and later corrected himself) that he had found a patent by B&M for a 4d coaster and the rumors started flying and still soar today.
(heck, until searching CBuzz just now, I thought it was true too)
I did, however just search the USPO website and found no recent patents for B&M

"Please let that be a joke, because that is really gay, and I KNOW gay."
Having seen your profile, I'd agree!

...which in turn explains why he thinks TTD is better than sex....he's doing it wrong...;)
bill, habitual line stepper...:)
Hey, it's my birthday, I'm allowed one TRULY tasteless joke, aren't I?
Oh, and back to topic...wasn't there a *strong rumor* about a Beema 4-D at Port Aventura? What became of that...anyone...

It's going to GAdv. ;)
I heard it got canned for one reason or another, but I do remember seeing the article that announced it over the winter.
