You got my hopes up. An inverted fly through will be cool. I hope the rumored 5g helix is a sign that B&M will start putting forces back into their rides.

The story behind the helix is that B&M didn't want to build it because it would be to intense. But Phantasialand wanted to have the helix so they put it in the ride.

Didn't we make fun of this name when a waterpark in Wisconsin Dells opened up a new slide titled this.

Again, another Porno Movie sounding named coaster.

Sounds promising, looks like it will be heavily themed.

Hooray, looks like I lucked out in planning my trip to Germany for next September instead of this September. Beer and new B&Ms, both with forces, what could be better!?

OMG That looks incredible! I never rode any B&M so far so it is really great that there are building one 50 minutes from my home^^
It really sounds like a bigger version of Nemesis because of the line that says there are going to be waterfalls and canyons.
now I am really looking forward to the next year and especially to visiting Phantasialand!

BTW here is the same update, artworks and information on English:

No, that was Black Anaconda.

Great news (especially for Roeterich) :)

If you're looking for a great B&M in Germany, you gotta try Silver Star at Europa Park.

I don't know why, but that coaster sticks out in my mind...

oooooo.... shiny...

This statement is faulty........ The new rides by B&M and actually just B&M in general aren't that intense for looping coasters, personally I think they are more desireable if it isn't pulling 5 g's all over the place because to much of a good thing is painful....... And forces are still being applied to new B&M just only on a certain part of the ride, case in point Silver Bullet's finale helix.
