Then break down in its first week of operation and be delayed for another 3 months while they try to fix something.
Some memes are meant to be kept

Why does everyone hate on Intamin. The only reason their rides go down are because they innovate EVERYTHING. When they build there rides with proven equipment like wicked twister or Balder. The only rides that go down or are delayed are rides like Maverick and Intimidator that have issues that are impossible to predict. If B&M tried doing what intamin does there is no way they would keep their reputation. All their rides are using equipment that's been around since the 80's!(Minus Thunderbird of course, we don;t know if that worked yet though.) And if Intamin was so unreliable as people say. they wouldn't be in business still. Companies know that they always go above and beyond expectations and get the most return on your investment.

Rant over, I'll bet anyone five bucks that Intamin won't be the reason for the delays this will inevitably have.

I'm sorry I led you to make that rant. I was simply making a joke and I agree with everything that you said.

What people don't realize is that the park bought a prototype which means that problems are extremely likely.

I miss Intamin and I wish they would do more in the U.S.

Oh I'm not hating on them, they have the best coasters in the world for a reason, but it comes at a cost, both money wise and mechanically.

Aren't intamins generally cheaper than other manufacturers? Anyway I don't think the drop tower should have many problems given that its just slightly taller than Zumanjaro and it's not in New Jersey. The lift hill may have some problems if they keep the weird cable lift hill though. I can't wait to see what kind of trains they use, they'll probably need a whole new design to work with the tight radius' of the old design.

the cost adds up after rides closing due to difficulty and to delayed opening and even them having to redesign the ride after they finish it hint maverick and I305

I'm guessing they don't charge parks for fixing their mistakes. The only money they could loose is from not drawing as many people at opening.

Indeed - the problem within all of construction is determining what is a design mistake (by the designer - designer foots the bill) and what is a design change (requested from the client - client foots the bill). Of course that's assuming a target cost contract (most likely) - I really don't think its worth going into types on contract in this topic though!
Coaster Count - 128
