Are there any? I was just wondering because in a roller coaster book it said "B&M used this unusual 4 abreast seating which would show up on nearly everone of them." This book was rather outdated or the was taking in some sort of past tense.
Actually, the first 4-across seating was Intamin's Space Diver model, dubbed Z-Force at SFoG, later named Flashback when it traveled to SFMM. It WAS designed by B&M, but that was when they worked fopr Intamin...or so I understand... ----------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you
It's not really a mystery! B&M have used 4-across on most of their rides, the two with 8-across being the exception. Did the book say actually anything about 2-across? ----------------- COOK PASS BABTRIDGE
Well B&M are the people who really brought 4 wide seating into the broad market and I personally love 4 ide sewating it is a inovation that should have seen incresed usgae long ago! ----------------- All at once the ghosts come back reeling you in now.
They have a good backrest :) If it had different trains, the ride may be a lot rougher, but then who knows. ----------------- Drive to theme parks for the food, stay for the coasters!! Knott's Fried Chicken
All I know is that I pulled my back muscle on Psyclone so I didn't get to enjoy the trains. But from what I remember they were fairly comfortable almost like the Morgan trains.

Another reason why B&M is cool. 4-across seats helps ride capacity and when I go to a park with my 2 friends 1 of the 3 of us don't have to ride alone. ----------------- Millennium Force....it has its ups and downs.
B&M designed all and any four abreast coasters, with the exception of Intamin/Giovanola's Eurostar Inverted. Psyclone is the only wooden graced by B&M. B&M worked for Intamin originally, but broke off in the late 80's then debuted Iron Wolf in 1990. B&M created four across and the box-track, which they took with them after they broke off from Intamin. ----------------- ------- The Original Duke From Danimation!
Hey duke, where'd you learn that from? I want proof. Who said B&M designed the box track? Who said B&M designed Batman: The Escape? Who said B&M designed Z-Force/Flashback? Who said B&M designed Shockwave? Who said B&M designed La Cobra? ----------------- Sammy resides in a popcorn box 8 inches under as of 10/24 4:30PM. Sammy was my cockatiel.
