Icarus: Wings of Steel is a B&M giga coaster. Standing at 95m (312 ft) tall, Icarus sends riders over 1800m (5905.5 ft) of track including three massive airtime hills, a special Sun Dive element, and a fast and intense finish. The towering structure dominates the entire backside of the park, stretching from one end to the other.


Bonus Batman the Ride recreation. I feel like I've got this one really close, but I'm unhappy with the first loop, and some very minor banking discrepancies.

It sits pretty casually in this project, but I may hunker down and get as close to 100% as I can on this recreation one day. The focus here is on Icarus, so Batman mostly sits as a set-piece to make the area feel more complete.

The supports, for both rides, are mainly placeholders until I get further into the details, but are mostly representative of the final product. I'll try to fill as much of the surrounding area with other park stuff as I can, but the density of the park might be pretty sparse given how wide of an area this thing takes up.

Comments are welcome and appreciated. :)

Quick update: things are moving along! The park decorations around the main attraction are all sliding in pretty easily and I am liking the overall feel of this chunk of amusement park.


Batman needs supports and a station. I'll also include a small plaza of sorts to help distinguish its queue, though I'm not going to go too heavy for that ride since Icarus screams past it so fast. Trying to control how much stuff I put in to help those with lower-end PC's, so if it doesn't add to the experience on Icarus, it doesn't go in!


Still have some finishing touches for the supports on Icarus, (some of the footers could be wider, needs some more cross-supports, et cetera,) but it is mostly there.

Thoughts or critiques so far?

I'm loving that layout! That low turn looks fantastic and I honestly want to see that element on an actual B&M at some point.

Cheers and thank you!

Making progress. Batman needs a queue, and there's a bit of foliage and rocks to add still. I'm thinking this will be ready next week. :)


And it's finished!

Enjoy your ride.
