I gotta say, I'm a little short of breath... Holy mother of mercy.

And maybe there's some launched section, too? That is very, very naughty...

Who knew the biggest project of the year would all of a sudden be at CW? Seemed to come out of nowhere to me. Im very excited to see the layout and the stats. Also how they can make this different than Behemoth. I knew B&M would not let us down ;-)

Well...huh! And what does Piers have to do with this??!?!



So many jokes, so little class I could show... But either way, a massive erection shall rise in Vaughn, Ontario.

(You're on your own from there.)

I'm actually now very curious as to what spurred B&M to jump into the Giga game- or if it's just a new term for a type of coaster/scale of coaster instead of the terms that Intamin has given out for an over 300 foot coaster. It would seem odd that B&M is only now getting into the 300 footer game- but then again, I rule nothing out when it comes to parks and ride designers.

Wow, I never thought I'd make it back to Canadia's Wonderland. I was wrong.

This is an odd breaking structure for B&M, isn't it? or is this something else?

That's B&M's version of magnetic braking. It's been used before (Diamondback,and many others )

Wow! I'm so curious to find out what the layout will be like.... I would have never expected this a month ago!
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.
