Having rid the likes of Mantis and Riddlers Revenge I pray to god the next B&M is not going to be a standup, cause even B&M cant make those things comfortable, you still bang your head on the restraints over and over.
I'm finding it hard to think the UK may get another B&M for quite some time, I don't see AT getting one, as all they could really add would be a floorless, wingriders or a hyper and with the height restrictions I'm not sure they would fit in.
The best hope would be Thorpe getting one, perhaps a hyper of some sort around the 200ft (stealth) size, but again I really believe Thorpes next coaster will be a Intamin mega lite. Unless they surprise me with a dive machine, basically a Sheikra/Gryphon clone or maybe something smaller like Krake or perhaps a good flying coaster...a Tatsu/Crystal Wings clone would be a very nice addition to the park.
But sadly folks to sum it up, I don't think we will see a B&M in the UK for quite some time which is a shame cause we badly need some kind of hyper/giga air time machine to take away the PMBO's crown.
I agree with you that B&M standups are really not comfortable and i also agree that a flyer at Thorpe would be amazing!
if we did get an airtime machine, i would hope for it to be an Intamin woodie, not a B&M hyper, Unless the hyper had a lot of ejector airtime.
