What is better: B&M inverted or Vekoma SLC?

Saturday, February 24, 2001 1:43 PM
I think that B&M inverted coasters are better than Vekoma SLC's because they're bigger, faster, taller and more flexible than a Vekoma SLC. The trains are also comfortable. Any B&M inverted would beat a Vekoma SLC anyday. For example, Top Gun at PGA(B&M) is way better than Kong(Vekoma) at SFMW even though Top Gun is shorter and has lesser elements than Kong.

I'll take a B&M any day over an SLC. Less head banging, less headaches, more fun. Never ridden any, but judging from others conclusion's, they'd seem better.

Come on... do you really have to ask this question, I don't know many people who would take a Vekoma anything over a B&M.

B+M...I think this topic is pretty one-sided.

Seriously though, MAYBE a BETTER question might be, Intamin Invert or B&M Invert... I havn't been on an Intamin Invert, so I can't answer, but I bet most would still go for B&M.

The only B&M invert that wasn't as good as an SLC is Great Bear. That thing was VERY short and VERY lame.

B&M, is there any contest at all?! Think about if B&M comes out with a flying coaster, that would be another thing they would have over Vekoma. B&M loopers (of any type) are better than Vekoma's.

If you have never been on a Vekome SLC, why even reply to this post? I've been on two and have found neither of them to be that bad, but B&M's are faster and smoother.

i definatly will have to go with B&M. kong at SFMW will knock you senseless while top gun at PGA is smooth and enjoyable. hopefully kongs new coat of paint will help its performance.
