Very little known floorless by B&M

Tuesday, April 2, 2002 10:41 AM

Since I was bored on my last day of Easter vacation, I did a little bit of searching and came across this-http://rcdb.com/installationdetail1500.htm.

I have never heard anything about this floorless B&M. It doesn't seem to be a clone. Does anyone have any more information or pictures of this coaster. The park also seems to have a mini-hyper coaster by B&M. The floorless coaster doesn't seem to be on the list of coasters on this site.

The other B&M is a vertical drop coaster, similar to Oblivion without the underground jibber jabber.

If the shoe fits, find another one.

I had originally thought it was a clone of Batman. But I disregarded by conclusion because of the immleman..

Actually they are almost completely different. For starters, this one has a straight first drop.

Are you shure it's like B:TDK, this one doesnt have a zero-g roll either. I'd like to see some photos if anyone has a link.

Hard to be a clone of B:TDK when it was around before B:TDK anyway.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

To be a clone, it has to have the same elements for one. And for two, it has to be newer, and this one is open, last I heard B:DK is not. If it would have been a clone, the truth would be Batman would be the clone, but it's not, both are original layouts.

just so you know, the B&M dive machine at that park isnt called G5 anymore, it is now called "the flying submarine", and the floorless used to be called "crazy flying coaster", but is now called "Impulse flying coaster" or IFC for short. but remember this, the literal translation of flying is actually speed or something, so they arent as funny as they sound, maybe except for "speed submarine"!!

No, actually the coaster is at Janfusun Fancyworld. But I know you are kidding.

Probably because of where it is at.

Actually, G5, or as I refuse to call it "The Flying Submarine" does have the underground sections, just not nearly as much as Oblivion. I wish I had a photo to show you, but on this one the drop starts levelling out before it hits the tunneled section, and the heavily banked turn is sticking way out off the ground.

As for its name, it is quite simple. As you all probably know, translations from Asian languages can be very sketchy at times. Flying as said earlier would mean speed or the sense of moving around doing manouvers in the sky as such. Submarine would simply mean underground or something along those lines due to the tunneled section.

So what if the best coaster in Australia is a second hand Arrow?

Either way, no matter where the ride is, I am still suprised that it isn't well known. Especially since its been in operation only since 2001 and that it was made by B&M.

This coaster is not a clone of any other coaster, nor has it been cloned.

Now back to our regularly scheduled broadcast.

Wildfire isn't even a floorless.

Wildfire has an immleman, a loop, a cobra roll, and a finale corkscrew.

Crazy Flying Coaster has a loop, immleman and interlocking corkscrews. They don't sound like clones to me.
