So we have vertical construction on the new B&M flyer themed to Jurassic Park at Universal Studios Japan.

This clears up where the greeny blue track at the B&M factory is going.


Looks like area around the station is going up




some track at the B&M plant

Re: USJ | Unknown | B&M Flying Coaster

As great as this is going to be thanks, no doubt, to amazing theming etc., it's also a bit **** that after years of Japan getting basically nothing new, two B&M flyers open back to back. Osaka and Nagoya aren't even very far from each other.

Thats easily the best flyer drop to date, its considerably steeper than the others so there will be a greater sensation of acceleration as riders swoop to the left.

Oh God that element on Starry Sky Ripper is phenomenal so happy.

Hoping it leads in to a loop <3

SSR is SO good nice to see another really twisted Flyer coming.

Does anybody remember this flyer element from our very own Richard Lerwill?!

^I do remember! And wouldn't that be fantastic?! <3

I didn't realise Starry Sky Ripper was so good, so it's nice to see another one of these more adventurous flying coasters from B&M.

Very cool! Really enjoy how the layout sweeps across the park.

Wow, didn't expect that. I'm really interested to see how the rest of the layout takes place.

I'm wondering if there's gonna be any form of interaction with landscaping or scenery? Like how Hollywood Dream interacts with the buildings and to some extent like Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit interacts with the building as a tunnel etc.

I'm really struggling to make heads or tails out of this layout, it looks to have a sort of Immelmann followed by a pretzel loop - is this correct?

Yeah, I think you're right. It's got the zero-g, Immelmann then the pretzel loop. Looks like it could be pretty intense actually!

I think in order of elements, it seems: drop, 540º Roll (or whatever it's called now, RCDB has it as an 'inline twist' and 'fly to lie'), Immelmann (lie to fly or half loop maybe), pretzel loop, small airtime hill, wingover, helix into drop, inline twist, breaks.

Making a total of 7 'inversions', so to speak, being the roll (2), Immelmann (1), Pretzel Loop (2), Wingover (1), Inline (1). Pretty nice layout.
