Wasn't RB the first B&M hyper?

I could've sworn that Raging Bull was the first to open between it and Apollo's Chariot. Is it that or is it ONLY a hyper twister?

AC, opened 03/27/99

RB, opened 05/01/99

AC may have opened first but technically they are both the first B&M speed coasters.

I believe RB was put into design first, making it the first. Just what I think.

Actually, Raging Bull was B&Ms first hyper twister.

Also, contrary to former belief, Raging Bull was the world's second hyper twister. The first was Fujiyama.

RB was the second '1st generation' B&M hypers. I would guess, though, that it was in design before AC, ac AFL said. I would think a twister would take longer to design than a out-and back, as people are more sensitive laterals, and it takes more time to design the support strucure so it doesn't hit people on the ride.
