Tatsu looks awesome, might be an excuse for a trip to califonia.
But why is this in other UK parks?

tatsu looks awesome, theres a video of it on ssmm website. El toro is going to be a huge addition to sfga, it will make it one of the best ride line ups in the world, just behind Cedar Point in my oppinion.

It looks good in that colour scheme, so why change it? although some variety might be nice, it looks good.

I Doupt they would try and move Air, for a start it would be stupidly expencive, landscaping for nemesis cost £30mill. No one was suggesting that they were going to physically move air, just that it would be rethemed.[/quote] My bad, i guess i should read stuff properly :P Back on topic, I like Air...

Theres a video of it on the website I belive, looks quite good. Remdinds me a bit of Kingda Ka, in the way that it was just slightly higher and slightly faster than Top Thrill Dragster.

*****Schwarzskopf have ceased to exist since 1995***** Well, kinda, I think his son keeps the company going, I think they make new train's for existing ride's and maintain old one's - not 100% on that though! Also, the 689 SLC is'nt trash - a park would'nt buy one if they were widely known as CRAP,...

Well I read the same as Beaver Dude. It's in one of the books I have and I have read it elsewhere on the internet. so I think that Intamin did take over Schwarzkopf Even if they didn't the two companies certainly merged to make some coasters Schwarzkopf Industries grew rapidly with the vast support...

So being the same is good now? scroll back a couple of posts, the generally feedback I got was that B&M's biggest problem was being the same and not changing.

hill after hill after hill. Sounds a bit dull doesn't it? Are you saying rides like nitro and apollo's chariot are dull. nope I don't think so. Again though why do parks build them, because people love them. Have you ever herd of 'air time'? B&M have had far more significant impact on coaster d...

Voyage (Truly awesome layout),


Voyage isn't even an Intamin coaster. It is made by 'The Gravity Group'
If you are going to try and show how Intamin are better than B&M, using coasters that are actually made by Intamin might be a worth a try ;)

I'm sorry, but have you seen rcdb at the moment? next year's line up is absaloutely packed full of B&Ms. Intamin and Vekoma have got nothing like as many coasters for next year. B&M can't be falling behind if they are still so popular with with parks. At the moment I'm actually questioning ...

It seems to me to be all about the drop, and from other people i herd the actually ride was poor. imo Oblivion is the best drop in the UK Although PMBO is one of a few hypers. I dont think it is as good as a lot of other rides.

- Its common knowledge that B+M will only take on contracts that they believe will easily fit into their knowledge and practical experience. We also know that B+M didnt want the third wing over on Nemmy, it was Wardley who forced it. Its also common knowledge that nemesis has 2 wing-overs/flat spin...

To be honest i dont see any problems with it, it does look a little bit old so mabey a bit of polish and a lick of paint, some themed music to get you in the mood, but apart from that I cant see any need to change it.
