I still don't really understand what Verboten does yet but I know a coaster company that has only made kiddie ride and one that I haven't even heard of should not be making rides at a park as big as BGW.

Well every park has to give a company a shot eventually or the company would never get a chance. Hopefully, it will work out better for BGW than Mach Tower did...

The ride isn't going to be very thrilling though, which is why when coaster enthusiasts see the stats/ride this thing, they will complain about it... but they need to remember, this is replacing a family coaster, Big Bad Wolf.

Oh, well, even if it's not thrilling I will hopefully be going to BGW next year. Big Grin

Mach Tower would be a good way to work your way up to KD's Drop Tower, you should try it out!

I might... I have never liked Drop Towers, I don't know why I just don't.

If you can handle 305's drop and Griffon's drop, you should be able to do Drop Tower and Mach Tower.

I haven't ridden Griffon or Apollo's Charriot either. I went in 2010 and was scared of a lot of roller coasters. It took me until April of this year to ride 305! But after 305 i'm not scared of anything but Drop Towers.

Re: Mach Tower biggest mistake since Drachen Fire
Employees were riding Mach Tower today and a friend of mine was tagged in a photo posted by someone on fb. I do not want to put the photo on here for copyright purposes. The latest word is that it will open tomorrow.

I am happy with life

^already??? :lol: I am sure there are a lot of management people at BGW who are very unhappy with the way this went. Opening 3 months late and missed basically the whole summer.
