I really enjoyed riding Talon.  And as you can tell by the smiles, these folks are enjoying it too!  Talon was built by Bolliger and Mabillard. It was their tenth custom-designed 'inverted' coaster.

The most surprising thing to me about Talon was its sound.  The coaster was almost completely silent!  Gone was the 'roar' that B&M coasters make when rolling down the track.  To help silence this ride, Talon's track was filled with sand and the supports were filled with gravel.
