Mommy, Where Do B&M’s Come From?bolliger mabillard Ohio manufacturing plant | How Roller Coasters Are Made
Ever wonder where and how roller coasters are made? NewsPlusNotes has an excellent behind-the-scenes look at a manufacturing plant in Ohio that churns out Bolliger & Mabillard’s great roller coasters for the U.S.

The NewsPlusNotes staff were taken through the process that just produced the track for SeaWorld Orlando’s Manta along with many other top-notch rides over the years. It’s a real in-depth post. Check out the Scott and Carol Present: Getting on Track with B&M, it’s some great stuff.

Founder of CoasterCritic.com. My favorite coasters are B&M hypers and gigas. I'm also a huge fan of terrain roller coasters.

  1. that is a cool article. It's weird how the pieces of track are hollow. Also, it's funny how the supports for Vortex impressed bolliger though the supports for B&M look nothing like those supports. Thanks for the link!

  3. I think what they liked about Vortex's supports was the quality of fabrication and not what they look like. B&M design their own supports; the plant that the article is about just makes them.
