Nice! I really like this project.

Are those new trains really better than the old ones? Do they really improve the ride experience?

...Until they get brake-raped.

On top of that, my main problems with B&M these days is that they are becoming increasingly predictable and the trains/restraints blow. I know some people are infatuated with the clamshell restraints, but I hate them with a passion. For me, they are far too bulky and restrictive. I'd much prefer to have an Intamin T-bar or old-Giovanola style lap bar rather than feeling like I have a dog laying on my lap.

Nevertheless, I'm still glad the Kings Island is finally getting a hyper. I don't want to sound ungrateful like some people do when they don't get exactly what they want in a new coaster. No matter what, I'm still thrilled about it and am holding judgment until I ride it. I just wanted to let it be known that B&M hypers aren't perfect for everybody.

Even though I'm not a fan of Soft Drinks I still think that's a cool idea.

The thing with all B&M's is that all the elements they offer are pretty much universal for all their rides. Not that it would ever happen, but you could have an invert, floorless, stand up, and maybe even a sit down with identical layouts. Not that I'm complaining, but it would be nice to see something innovative from B&M. I don't think B&M has really turned any heads since the conception of the invert. I'm sure that Mustang will have massive air time, but you'd be able to appreciate it more if there were less of a lap bar.
