^ Just joking :) I don't even think B&M ever had a delayed project.

I love donkeys more than me.

So I guess we might see a Dive-Coaster in the size of Krake at Heide-Park which has a total height of 41 meters and cost €12 million in 2010/2011 - sadly not seeing an installation like the Busch Gardens divers at 61 meters.

But quite sure Efteling will add some great theming to this coaster... :roll:

^I do find it slightly odd that now some parks are building dive coasters (which are all about the first drop and its height) not so tall at all. It's obviously better than nothing, but I feel that they're kind of missing the point of the ride,
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

I think oblivion allready proved you don't need to be that high up for this kind of coaster to work.

^But Oblivion's drop is 180 ft tall, much more than this will be.

^That would be nice, wouldn't it? But then that's the point of this concept of ride, so...

No way, people love holding brakes. Myself included, I think that's the thing that really sets dive machines apart, and many people find them terrifying.
