Could this be our first B&M?

Up on the Theme Park Review website is some mysterious photos of B&M track outside a factory. I know its a very long shot, but maybe this is Dreamworld or Movieworld's new rollercoaster.

Don't say one day, that day will never come! - Classic Dreamworld Ad I'm really not holding my breath that this track is bound for Australia. We'll get a good new coaster soon no doubt and Movie World is due but it won't be a B&M... hopefully I'm proved wrong.

Thought it would be worth pointing out, but I'm guessing the only reason this got attention on here was because some TPR member from Byron kept insisting (over a number of posts :lol: )that this coaster was for Australia:

I heard that Dreamworld in Australia was getting a B&M. Considering Australian parks can open there rides anytime during the year. (due to the fact there open year round). It makes "some" sense. But. It really is only a rumour. It could just be some spare track.
It's quite exciting really. I hope it is for an Australian Theme Park. We have no B&Ms. But we have an SLC! and an Arrow Custom Looper. Both hurt like a bi*ch. I hope its something like a flyer or a standup.
I believe it may be for an Australian Park. Dreamworld and Movie world are getting lots of new things the past few years. And they both seem to be competing against each other for rides. I think it would be for Dreamworld.
Dreamworld Usually Opens rides in September/October for the Upcoming Summer. Considering Dreamworld seems to release one every 3 years. 2007 Being the last - 2010 seems logical. But Movie world would probably get it. But they did get Batwing in 07? And Seaworld just got Jet Rescue. So i dont know. But either way. Dreamworld and Movie world are 10 Minutes away. So Either way. Im Happy whoever gets a B&M First.
Movie world did afford a Intamin Rocket coaster, an S&S Space Shot within 2 years of each other. Dreamworld Bought Tower Of Terror and less then a year later converted it into Giant Drop as well. I feel the money isnt an issue. I mean Dreamworld havent bought anything new since Motocoaster. and it was a bad ride. And Movieworld havent bought anything since Batwing. It seems quite logical They are getting the B&M.
Anyways. I still believe that it could be either Australian Parks. I Also heard Australia Zoo was going to become a theme park with rides and stuff. I'd actually deal with bindi irwins annoyingness to ride a B&M.

the ID tag that appears on one of the track pics also gets a reference on them Park Revue in the following manner in one of the blogs "On all of the track pieces, the JOB # corresponds to the first 4 digits of the bar code. The next 5 digits seem to correspond to the Part # of the "track element" pieces (underlined). don't think it is possible to figure out what park it is going to based on the barcode. Here is what I have so far Barcode-----------Part # ----------------Park-------- 576200062 ----- SC-R00-TE062 ==== Mystery 653200002 ----- DM-E00-TE002 === Chimelong Paradise 606200003 ----- IC2-E00-TE003 === Worlds of Fun 602600015 ----- LC-E00-TE015 ==== Happy Valley 613300070 ----- MC-E50-146-C46L1 = SFOG 601100002 ----- L21-012-L2 ====== SFNE 500500006 ----- V15-026-M1 ====== Dorney 623300025 ----- DM-C50-157-C57L1 == Busch Gardens Tampa I'm starting to think this is either extra/new parts for a existing coaster and the park is going to pick up the track themselves, or this is a prototype. A prototype would make a lot of sense. There have been no announcements, It is labeled differently than anything we have yet seen. X-works, as in (Project)X-Works (Work in progress/in the works?). " But I had a thought the first part of the numbers almost look like international dialing codes depicting the country it is destined for, would anyone else agree?

Err, no because none of the other coasters match this pattern....Why don't the US coasters begin with 1, or the Chinese coasters begin with 86?

Maybe FedEx just got the location wrong and no one ever thought twice? What does Columbia need a B&M for?

quite possibly mean
Maquarie has alot of other ventures into all sorts of businesses, I hardly believe this increases our chances of getting a B&M. I think were just fueling this rumor a bit too much Edited by DonjaiInLA

The prefix for bar codes in Australia is 93, in NZ it is 94. But this is only for items manufactured in those countries. If you have a look at a bar code and it's doesn't have 93 at the start, look at where it is produced, it won't be Australia. Bussy

Either I missunderstood you, or you just connected the dots to point out to us that B&Ms arent made in Australia like previously thought...
What I was trying to point out is that unless you know what type of bar code the company is using, there are heaps and it is probably be one of their own making, it is pointless to speculate on what the bar code means, unless you have access B&M's company information. I can tell you that, after some research, I have found that 9 digit bar codes are not an international standard. Bussy

Well your hardly going to pick up a brake section at your local Woolworths or a carriage at Kmart are you. Though your completely right, without access to their computers I'd say give up on trying to find out

So i am lost... how do we know that www.sixflagsgreataustralia.com has been registered. How do we know it is in Melbourne? I would be surprised if Six Flags would expand here since they have been so busy off loading parks. Since macquarie leisure is perfomring quite well i would think it possible we may see something big at Dreamworld... but i would not be holding our breath for a B&M. They are just too expensive you would be looking at 30 - 40 million dollars... for something small. Considering how much they spent on the Tower of Terror which was seen as a massive expansion... and to be honest it saved Dreamworld's butt... something like a B&M would be atleast twice this cost... and since Dreamworld is performing and is in no need of a massive injection of capitol to win back guests they would not spend mega bucks on something this big when it is not neccessary.

What? Where did you get this from. Tatsu, a BIG B&M Flyer was only 21 million? And then what about the diving machines? Their pretty big, Sheikra was only 13.5 million. Myself personally consider the Ridler to be pretty big too - 14 million Edited by mickey_079

That is US dollars... you need to take into account the exchange rate...

www.sixflagsgreataustralia.com was a joke qldtaw. --- Now you said a small B&M was $30-40 million. Even in AUD that's incorrect. So let's say $14 million USD. That's only $20,745,200 AUD.

Ok then, a small (In relative terms) B&M would be something like Hydra at Dorney Park (30m high, 974m long), which was 13 Mil USD to build, or 19 Million AUD...Nowhere near the 30-40 Mil figures you were stating.
