Of you want to be really, really technical, then it was Shockwave at SFMM.


Technically, that is an Intamin, not B&M.

It looks like a B&M, it was designed by B&M, to me it's a B&M.


If we want to be really technical, it was actually designed by B&M, built by Giovanola, and sold to Intamin.


It was designed by Intamin and subcontracted to Giovanola and opened in 1986. B&M was founded in 1988. It doesn't matter who Walter & Claude worked for at the time since B&M was not in existence yet. It's manufacturer is still Intamin.

I would have to guess either Raptor or Batman the ride at Six Flags St. Louis...if I had to guess I'd go Raptor, because I seem to remember my dad getting walk of shamed on it then going to our home park the next year to try fitting in Batman and still couldn't do it.
