Look so tediously 'boring' next to the chosen option... So pleased they didn't go with this, it wouldn't stand any chance of being the best hyper in Europe.For anyone interested, here is an accurate re-creation of B&M's bid for the coaster, accurate to the overhead plans, made by Jamie Rogers (Jambles), the guy who made the accurate pre-creation I posted further up the page.
This layout comes out 1,297m (4,255ft) long. While I do prefer the Mack bid personally, I am curious why it is so much shorter than this hyper. As far as B&M hypers go, it looks fairly generic to me but it would've solved the UK airtime issue.
Having said that, it's length seems a little better, and I would like to think that they'd have thrown in a few more variances of airtime hill, not just straight hills over and over with one banked hill plonked in right at the end. Guess we'll never know that for sure, unless we get more than the top down!
