New Coaster Documentary For 2006!

Sat Nov 12, 2005 8:53 pm

National Geographic Television interviewed Clermont Steel in September as part of a TV documentary to be aired in 2006 on the history of roller coasters. Many of the Bolliger & Mabillard coaster designs that Clermont Steel makes have been landmark achievements in the industry.

It looks like they are making a new program about B&M coasters. Im looking forward to this one!

^ Just to point out, it won't feature any European B&M's as the factory over in the States only manafactures track for the America's and Asia.

European B&M's are manafactured in Switzerland I believe.

So you expect the factory to start shipping out track to Europe, despite the fact B&M track is already manafacutred on the continent.

Imported out-of-date cr*p!


Despite the fact that's it's just been filmed.

exept for this but its still america based! grrr


For all you know they might film B&M's in Asia, Pyrenees in Japan is one of the best inverts.

Seriously try thinking before you post.

Yeah, the program will cover the US and Asia B+M's.

Giovanola do the steel fabrication for B+M in Europe :)

Although, B+M have just built a small plant in Hungary I believe.


NOTE: Plant as in manufacturing facility not thing with petals and leaves.

To be fair, we might not ever see it.
You have to remember it is being filmed for a US audience by the looks of it.

It could well appear on the National Geographic Channel in the UK though.
But I wouldnt be getting to excited yet if I were you.

I'm sure that for Freeview viewers, Sky travel will get hold of it. You may have to wait a few years or so but I'm sure they will eventually
