I did. The flyer is already obsolete with the 4th Dimension IMO.

I admit I did, While I like B&M's I don't find most of them as thrilling as almost any CCI or Intamin product.

Give me a terrain CCI at PKI! :) A terrain Intamin Hyper would be sweet also. Loop are the same thing over and over Inverted, Standup or floorless. They are good but get old after a while, A standup airtime moment draws me back time after time!

The question states: DO YOU WANT A B&M FLYER AT YOUR PARK?

YES or NO.

Yes you want the addition of a flyer OR NO, you DO NOT want a ROLLERCOASTER ADDITION AT ALL.

The question was NOT - DO you want a Flyer rather than something else, or first and foremost.

Unless you've ridden one (nobody has) and HATED it, there is no reason to honestly NOT want one.

7.1% of the poll takers are cukoo!

Why does it matter? It's just a poll. Actaully, I would rather have a woodie or an old Schwarzkopf.

Well, unless you are Claude or Walter disguising himself, you are pretty headstrong on a ride that hasn't even carried passenger one YET, or had to pay a dime for prototype technology. I want to sell you this bridge with a great view of Brooklyn......

I find it hard to believe that anyone would say no to any coaster at any park.

Well, it didn't say that, did it? That's just your interpretation. Now, that being said, I really don't have an opinion as to whether i would want my home park to have one, seeing as I haven't ridden one. I do know that I would rather have an Arrow 4D, a CCI, or intamin anything at my homepark before anything B&M.

If the shoe fits, find another one.

I voted yes of course. I am planning a trip to SFOG for Superman. I'd still rather see a 4th Dimension at my home parks.

You did basically the same thing Agent Johnson.

You just said "and I know better." At least LoadedG backed up his statement...

Umm, Mr. G (trying to sound dignified before lambastation..), your interpretation of the question is erroneous. There is no mention nor even a suggestion that it is a Flyer "or no rollercoaster addition at all". It pretty succinctly is "Do you want a B&M flyer" period, no more no less.

Much like steve above, I said no because I dont want to see another flying coaster @ SFA. Moreover, I personally dont like riding in the face down so-called "Flying Position". After dozens of laps on Bat-Flight, I feel I am qualified to make that distinction.

Furthermore, there are SEVERAL reasons not to want one. You gonna tell me that the only reason not to wants something is because you didnt hate it? Hell, I went skydiving once, liked it a lot, but have absolutely *NO* desire to ever do it again. Why not? I just dont *want* to.

Now, would I *mind* a B&M flyer @ SFA (assuming that it doesnt take away from other possible additions)? No I wouldnt mind one. I wouldnt *mind* if someone gave me a Hyundai Accent, but I damn sure dont *want* one. So to label some people "cuckoo" (the proper spelling mind you) for disagreeing with you is, IMO, short-sighted.

I Voted No as well.. Why I'd rather see a CCI Jewel in Cedar Points Crown or a Arrow 4D Coaster. A B&M Dueling floorless would also be acceptable. With a flying Dutchman 1 Hour away ( which I Love rideing ) I would like to see something else other than another flying coaster nearby . IMO

Why do I have a feeling this is someone's feeble attempt to take their anger out on someone that didn't subside to peer pressure and made their own decision regardless of whether it was popular or not...

Anyways, I said no cuz i'm just fine with my Batwing, thank you

I voted no because sfog already has one and i want a hyper instead of another b&m flyer. ;)

I'm a major admirer of B&M's handiwork, but like Steve, Jeremy & edh my home park already has a flying coaster. and I would rather have their capital go into some other type of coaster. Now if you ask me about a really wild B&M invert, standup, or floorless, or a CCI woodie out and back with huge air, an S&S air launch, or even a Wild Mouse, these would all make great additions since they would fill gaps in SFAs coasters.
