I don't know if this question has been brought up before, but will PKI ever get a B&M coaster of any type in the near future? Also why does PKI not jump in on the B&M coasters? I for one would like to see them get a B&M inverted or floorless coaster. If PKI did get at least 2 B&M coasters I don't think that I'd go to any other park any more. I also think that a B&M coaster would help boost PKI's steel coaster collection. It's just annoying that PKI has had a lot of chances to get the new B&M coaster types that pops up. Anyone with there 2 cents on this topic?

I would say no because Paramount seems to have a much better working relationship with Vekoma now and Paramount also has exclusive deals on rides like Stealth for a while and I bet that they will take advantage of this and build these rides over a B+M. I'm not saying it will never happen but don't count on it in the near future.

To add to Jeremy's comment, I think we sometimes forget how much a B&M can cost. But I would love to see it.

If PKI can build a $15 million dollar wooden coaster then I'm sure they can afford a $15 -$17 million dollar B&M coaster. It doesn't have to be the size of Alpengiest or Raging Bull. I wouldn't mind if it were no higher than the Vortex and have no more than 5 inversions, I just like them.
