Forgive my ignorance, but have B&M done many stand-up/upright rollercoasters?

While they could change their track design, there is no need as they have several years worth of orders for their current track designs. It makes no economical sense for a business with a full order book for years, to make a fundamental change to their core product for a single project. the cost to B&M would be immense, and all Alton would end up doing is paying through the nose for B&M to mimic Premier/Mack/Gerstlauer/MS/Vekoma. It make no sense in any way, shape or form!
