IAAPA 2000: B&M trains see new features, one appears to be for Great Adventure

Posted Thursday, November 16, 2000 8:08 PM | Contributed by Jeff

A spring-loaded cable on the new B&M hyper-coaster train, showing at IAAPA, will allow larger guests to be secured in their seats. This photo shows the link between the seat and the "clam shell" lap bar.

The train is suspiciously colored the same as the track appearing at Six Flags Great Adventure.

Meanwhile, the new train for Silver Dollar City's new looper shares more similarities with the hyper train than its nearest cousin from Busch Gardens Tampa's Kumba. The floor is flush-mounted with the floor without the short sides and front to the car, which will likely make for faster loading.
