Which park will be the first have 4 B&M creations?

Islands of Adventure and Six Flags Great Adventure are in the lead with 3 B&M coasters, but what park will be the first to have 4 B&M creations? My prediction is SFGAdv will get a B&M Stand Up in a few years to get 4. But there are many parks with 2 B&M coasters. If they got a dueling coaster, thats 4!

Don't forget about SFGAm, they have three B&M's too: Batman, Raging Bull, and Iron Wolf. I if am not mistaken, they were the first of the three parks to get three.

Actual IOA only has 2, remember you count racers as 1.

Six Flags Great America - 2002/2003 - Floorless or Flying B&M :) They can do it!

I think IOA, they will probably get a new coaster in the next few years and I think they will stick with B&Ms.

Actually IOA has 3.How can you count DD as one coaster. They are two different coasters.

I count them as 2 because they are both extremely different. Anyway, I would say SFGAm in 2003 and not SFGAdv since they are getting a B&M this year. I could be wrong though.

I don't want to start a war over this, but I really think most people would consider Fire and Ice Dragon as two different coasters. They're so different!

I would have to also agree that D.D. is 2 coasters because they are 2 different tracks

Since the topic is getting way out of hand, maybe it should state the first park to have 4 separate B&M coasters. SFGAm is the only park with 3 separate coasters.

And SFGAd will be the second park in the world with three completely separate B&Ms with the addition of Nitro. Also, in 2002, Alton Towers will premier (by all accounts) a B&M flying coaster, boosting their total up to three separate B&M's also.

As for which park will be first with four...No idea. I think SFGAd would be the best bet.

i think it will be a park that maybe no one will expect like BGT like maybe they'll get a dueling floorless or something!

In the recent World Recent attempt, Collossus was counted a 2. However I believe one side was going backward for the attempt and therefore it counted a seperate ride.

There a site but I cant remember what the URL is

Yea, sorry. I forgot about SFGAm.

Dueling Dragons are definitely two separate coasters for all the above reasons, plus they're DUELING coasters not RACING Coasters which are more of a single coaster than two. Think about it this way, a racing coaster is simply one with double rider capacity, rather like a two-lane road. It's a single road, not two seaprate roads!

'Nuff said, I think SFGAm will be the first to have 4 B&Ms. There've been several rumors that they want a Flooless for 2002.

You could say that SFGAdv has the most modern coaster variety of all the 3 B&M parks - Inverted, Floorless & Hyper. IOA has two Inverted & a SD. SFGAm has an Inverted, Hyper & old Stand-Up.

I'm pretty sure that SFMM, BGW, BGT will join the 3Beemers club.

Depending on how you look at it, SFMM has 4 already. I know this is a BIG stretch, but...

B:TR & Riddler: Both 100% B&M
FlashBack: Designed by Walt & Claude while at Intamin.
Psyclone: Runs with B&M designed Trains.

I know, I know, Psyclone & FB don't count, but just something to think about. So no flames please. I'm just pionting out that B&M DID have a hand in those two coasters.

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

I would call that 4 B&M's. But the trains really stretch it.

I think it would be sfgadv because they have A LOT of room to expand. If they tear down the Gasm B&M could squeeze in a nice standup. But they are planning to expand over their newly aquired 1,000 acres. In addition of the hotel, golf course, and movie theatre, they will probably fill in the area next to nitro and behind batman (this is where the land is)

I think that SFGAdv should get an Intamin looper and allow SFA to get the next B&M.

I think Dueling Dragons is two different coasters. I think IOA will be the first one with 4 B+Ms
