Whats Going on with Chance-Morgan??

What they did to the Phantom at Kennywood is amazing so why havent they built anything since then. I know that they were building a hyper in mexico (superman sumthing) but the opening was delayed a year and i havent heard if it opened this year or not.

So how come no other parks are interested in building Chance-Morgan coasters?? They are definently better than any watered down B&M clone ----cough Titan Goliath cough----

My friend, before you throw out the insults it helps to have your facts straight. Titan and Goliath weren't made by B&M. If you had gone to RCDB or Coasterbuzzes own database you would've known that. And, if you had been paying attention, you would've realized that Chance/Morgan has been busy building Revolutions (KMG Afterburner park model). They're not coasters I know, but money is money.

Six Flags Mexico's Morgan hyper is still not constructed.

Personally I don't consider Phantom a Morgan coaster, it in no way shape or form acts like a Morgan. Amazing ride but definitely not indicative of their other coasters.

I have ridden all three Stateside Beemer Hypers and they all easily beat out any Morgan coaster besides the Phantom. Even the weakest of the bunch Raging Bull outshines them by a huge margin.

Few things outshine the S:RoS's, Maggie, and Phantom though.

no no no!!! no coaster never sucks! it just doesn't excell in some of the areas, such as extreme ejector air! although some of my mates said they got a decent amount of air time on silver star.

I dont know I thought that Steel Force packed a better bunch than a B&M but maybe thats just me. I also heard that Wild Thing at Valleyfair was also a good airtime machine. The only thing that really gets me about b&m are all the trims they put on rides. Dont get me wrong they are good rides but I think that trims should Not be used as frequently.

Um.....pretty much all the Morgan Hypers are trimmed (block brakes). WT is trimmed like you wouldn't believe. Even SD2K is trimmed.

Also, their (at least some) rides are built with trims in mind for the design. That's like saying you don't like B&M's because they don't build their lift hills 10' taller. (which is a valid complaint, but still arguing B&M's design choice).
