    Do you prefer narrow or wide B&M Dive Coasters?

    Hi guys. In recent years, it does seem as though the Dive Coaster has maintained surprising longevity; despite having existed since 1998, it’s arguably one of B&M’s more popular models at present. With Dr Diabolical’s Cliffhanger and Emperor having opened in 2022 and Iron Menace opening at...

    Is the B&M family coaster starting to take off?

    Hi guys. For years, B&M completely avoided family coasters, which are possibly one of the most competitive sectors of the roller coaster market. For the first 20-25 years or so of B&M’s history, they completely steered clear of entering this sector, with no interest shown from the company...

    Modern Mack Trains (e.g., DC Rivals, Helix)

    One of the aspects of B&M trains that I like (and suspect I am not alone) is how open they are. Intamin and RMC have stronger air, but there is something about how open and roomy the B&M trains are that enhances their airtime compared to the tight cars on Intamin and RMC coasters. That my feet...

    Hi guys. After the recent opening of the World of Jumanji at Chessington, the UK now has two B&M Wing Coasters; The Swarm at Thorpe Park and Mandrill Mayhem at Chessington World of Adventures. These two rides are quite different, and are aimed at different markets; Swarm is an extreme thrill...

    Rank the B&M coasters in Florida

    Hi guys. The state of Florida contains many B&M coasters; between Universal Orlando, SeaWorld and Busch Gardens, the state is now pretty saturated with them. Many different models are represented within Florida; the theme park capital of the world is almost a B&M showroom of sorts! But with a...

    Block Behavior

    How, in the real world, do blocks work? Obviously there's the whole "controlled stop-point" thing, where a block is theoretically delineated by where a train can safely be brought to a stop, but real coasters are much more nuanced than just that - whether it be accelerators with their high-point...

    Is Apollo's chariot really the first B&M hyper?

    Apollo's chariot is located at Busch Garden Williamsburg is 170 FT tall with a 210FT drop, it is often considered the first B&M hyper however it does not reach the 200FT mark so iI would like to ask is it the first ever B&M hyper or does that honor go to raging bull?

    Are B&M Hyper Coasters sub-par in the modern age of coasters?

    Hi guys. In spite of B&M's reputation for quality, I've noticed that that enthusiasts have generally gone off their coasters a lot in the last 5-10 years; every installation of a B&M coaster these days seems to be met with groans and a general sense of antipathy. Even the company's airtime-based...

    Too tall to ride?

    Hi all! For me there seems to be a curse on riding B&M coasters. I am from the Netherlands and for a long time the Netherlands had no B&M coasters build. Now there are two but it's still a huge question if I will be able to ride one soon. I have been unlucky before because of a ride closing but...

    Manufacturers' 'Breakthrough' Coaster

    It seems as if companies such as B&M, Intamin, Vekoma and S&S have been around forever, it's hard to imagine what the industry would look like without them. I've decided to go back and discover what individual coaster put these companies on the map and why they still have influence in today's...

    Knott’s Berry Farm building a B&M in 2022?

    Hi guys. According to Screamscape, a permit was filed for “materials for an installation of an amusement park” at Knott’s Berry Farm, with the supplier listed as being none other than B&M: Could this mean that Knott’s is building a B&M coaster for 2022 or at some point in the near future? This...

    B&M’s Next Hyper/Giga Coaster Installation

    After B&M built Candymonium at Hersheypark as a hyper coaster and Orion at Kings Island as a giga coaster, do you think that they will design and manufacture more hyper/giga coasters? If so, where will they build their next hyper coaster at? If you think that B&M will build their second hyper...

    B&M needs some competition on Wing Coaster market

    Hi guys, I was just thinking how B&M dominates the coaster market in different styles. When you think about models like hyper, giga, inverted, wing and flying coaster you probably think first about B&M. The interesting point is that B&M has competition to all her coaster models except for the...

    My Detailed Review of Talon at Dorney Park

    First off, let me say that I'm biased when it comes to this coaster. I first rode Talon nearly 15 years ago at the age of ten, and was my first looping coaster, and I have ridden it more than any coaster. I would estimate somewhere around 1500 rides. Recently I have started traveling around and...

    SeaWorld Orlando | Pipeline: The Surf Coaster | B&M Surf Coaster | 2023

    So I'm surprised no one has posted this yet but B&M has filed a trademark for "Surf Coaster". So what does everyone think about this, We haven't seen a new large B&M model since 2011.
