It's times like this I remember how much I appreciate having family that lives an hour from Vaughn. :b

(Also, passed the park twice on the 407 today, I can just picture a giant aqua B&M rising above everything else...it'll look so amazing!)

^ It'd have to be way bigger then a giga to bee seen from the 407. ;)

Now the 400 on the other hand ....

I dunno, I saw Wonderland perfectly fine from the 407. Maybe I'm just hallucinating the giant hypercoaster and windseeker in the distance or something. :p

I think Thursday's announcement is going to be amazing just to see what B&M has up its sleeve for layout and train design. There's still a lot to find out!

I was thinking the exact same thing about Piers. I think there will be a bar up top serving beer before heading down.... ;)



I'm with you on this trip Jason ! :D Same with Nick some posts above :D

Here's to hoping it doesn't have the new, rattling trains! I imagine we'll see a new train type to further distinguish this from Behemoth (granted, there area parks like Hershey with two Intamins with identical trains). I wonder if we'll see OTSRs, or if B&M will keep it more gentle and stick with the clamshells? Can't wait to find out!

This is really kicking my Canada's Wonderland/New York/SFNE/Lake Componce trip into high gear!

B&M Mega Coaster 2 looks too intense for me









Can't wait to see what it is forreal. I have a feeling I will be going here in 2011.

I about fell off my seat when I saw the "giga" part.

Can it be true? Never, ever thought we'd see B&M heading in that direction--but if this is, in fact, what's going to happen...that's so unexpected...so interesting to see how it will be done...so awesome to see how it's going to differ from Behemoth...and...well, pardon me, but intelligent words are about to cease as I regress to a level of stereotypical teenage girl squealing.

EDIT: Also, I'm not sure if there's a pecking order in which B&M has their track delivered, whether it be just load it and go or furthest from the staging area first etc., but that piece on the truck looks to be the slanted brake runs that hold the LIMs. Could that be the rumored launch as well? I would assume they'd use LIMs instead of hydraulics


That would be the sloped brakerun & mag brakes.Carowinds Intimidator has an angled brake run that levels out as it turns into the station.

I'm glad people are going back to building enormous traditional coasters. It's amazing that the first two traditional gigacoasters opened a few months from each other and there wasn't another one for almost a decade. The rocket coasters are neat... but they don't hold a candle to traditional coasters.

Hopefully, you could then make it back in 2012 as well. ;)
