Photo TR: The complete set of B&M


Recommended Posts

After several years of visiting parks around the world I've finally (as of this afternoon) completed the set of all seventy-five coasters built to date by Bolliger & Mabillard. This is not something I expect to be able to claim for long, given that there's a new ride under construction at the moment in China, but it's still a fun statistic for a few weeks. To mark this triumph of credit whoring I thought it might be fun to post a photo essay documenting the full set, which spans eleven countries (China, Denmark, England, Italy, Germany, Japan, Kuwait, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, and the United States).

 

All pictures are my own. Rides marked with a * are no longer operating in the location where I took the picture. Numbers are from the list of coasters I've been on.

Thats insanely awesome and insanely nerdy! Do you have any more more pictures from Janfusun Fancyworld? That's defiantly a park you dont hear about a lot. Same with Entertainment City.

 

The latter can be found here. I've not posted my pictures from Janfusun mainly because the weather was pretty lousy, and thus the pictures mostly look horrible. I might see if I can touch them up a bit at some stage.

I have accompanied the geek on many of these trips and can attest to his lack of sanity on this occasion

even sadder I would have finished the set on the same day as the champion B&M rider, but I am 1 behind, I missed Flight Deck at CGA 5 days ago because I ran out of time credit hoaring Taxi Jam

George, I am expecting a "Complete set of Miler Kiddie Coasters" report any day now!

Wow, thats a great photo TR, thanks for sharing these with us. I saw your credit count and it is extremely high. Are there any other ride companies, that you've completed their collection as well? And I'd also like to know what your favorite B&M coaster was.
