Who's got the most B&M's?

Saturday, December 10, 2005 2:12 PM
Thinking way too hard for my own good I got to wondering...

Does anyone know which park has the most B&M's?

(Despite what people may assume, my fav B&M is Nitro at SFGrtAdv!-That coaster ROCKS!! :))

Not to spoil the fun, but some research on RCDB would give you results.

I would guess...
Hmph, I don't know what I would guess.

Tie between Six Flags Great Adventure (Batman, Medusa, Superman, Nitro), and Six Flags Great America (Batman, Iron Wolf, Raging Bull, Superman).

Soon to be tied with Six Flags Magic Mountain (Batman, Riddlers Revenge, Scream!, and soon-to-be Tatsu) and Six Flags Over Georgia (Batman, Georgia Scorcher, Superman, soon-to-be Goliath).

The most anyone has got at this point seems to be four.
SFGAdv
SFGAm
SFOG


SFMM only had 3 so far, but if you consider Flashback a B&M coaster (at least it was the first to feature the signature 4-accross seating and "space curve" track design method, SFMM will have 5 next spring when Tatsu opens.

Random Fact. Excluding Celebration City - Missouri is the ONLY state in the USA that all of the major parks have a B&M Coaster.

Um, no. Obviously it depends on how one defines "major," but certainly the following states seem to qualify:
-Illinois (SFGAm)
-Louisiana (SFNO)
-Massachusetts (SFNE)
-North Carolina (Carowinds)
-Texas (SFoT, SFFT, SWT)

Especially since you excluded a pretty "major" Missour park from your list.

Same question I had 'tuan.

I believe all three major amusement parks in Texas have B&Ms as well, the only major park in North Carolina has a B&M, the only major park in Illinois has a B&M, the only major park in Kentucky has a B&M (besides Beech Bend, which isn't a major park and it's fun to make fuzzy numbers), the only major park in Massachusetts has a B&M, etc. :)

The list above is not 100% correct, just go to this link to see them all listed by park name. http://www.rcdb.com/installationresult.htm?column=1,10,3,4,5&order=10,1&contact=1

Parks with 3 B&Ms are Alton Towers and Bush Gardens Tampa.

There are 64 B&Ms worldwide and 45 of them are in the US *** Edited 12/10/2005 10:29:08 PM UTC by Ajrides***

Flashback is not a B&M Coaster it is in fact Intamin. I heard that B&M spawned off of Intamin so it is possible that some current B&M designers had their hands in that project. The link to rcdb for flashback: http://www.rcdb.com/id128.htm *** Edited 12/10/2005 11:20:04 PM UTC by Trick Track***

IIRC Flashback was manufactured by Giovanola, designed by Walter and Claude, and sold to SFMM via Intamin, who was the ride broker...just like Revolution was designed by Anton but sold to SFMM via Intamin.

I imagine Flashback as the embryonic child of two engineers at Giovanola who were not quite themselves yet.
Who would need some more years to untangle the hairpin dives into space curves of wide open loops and shape their own company with a distincive DNA for coasters: B&M

But since it's only an embryo B&M, maybe it doesn't count as 1, so SFMM will end up with 4.3 B&M coasters next spring.

Well considering that SDC/CC are almost always considered together, that is where I was going with that. Now thinking about your other ones, I might go with Texas (but there is a few other large parks that do not have one). The other states only have one park which is nothing to brag about. Missouri has three major parks and they all have B&Ms. 3 PARKS not JUST ONE... Understand what I meant now? :)

And having a B&M in every "major" park in a state is something to brag about? Boy are we setting the bar low these days.

It's not suprising though that the 3 "big boys" of SFI have (or will have) 4 of the expensive coasters. I guess the mandated spending @ SFoG accounts for theirs. Wonder why SFoT came up short ;)

If it were up to me, I wouldn't call Worlds of Fun anywhere near a major park. =p

And taking out Celebration City from the mix is like taking Disney's California Adventure out of the CA list because Disneyland is a few feet away. It's wrong. Kind of like saying a pop album is the best album of the year. ;)
