This would work for me. Dive Coasters are one of the best rides B&M ever developed.

I'd certainly be a fan of this, I love both sheikra and griffon two of my favorite coasters just plain fun and those drops are awesome. The view of the lake and marina would be great.

I am intrigued to hear this new rumor regarding a Dive Coaster that may round out an already amazing lineup of coasters.

The price tag seems a little small to match the lofty details (rumors at this point...) being described so far. With that being said, I believe with three B&M projects in three years, and the fact that one of their newest concepts graces their new front gate, perhaps a heavy discount is being applied?

I have been avidly watching Oblivion 2.0 and Baron rising in Europe and was very happy to see not only that divers are making a comeback in the Western Hemisphere, but also that a zero g roll has appeared on Oblivion: Black Hole. Griffon is one of my all time favorites, but I always wondered if other elements were possible with the wider trains.

With Gatekeeper, Banshee, Leviathan, Behemoth, Rougarou, and Fury 325 being a big part of Cedar Fairs recent and potential success, I am pleased to see my favorite coaster manufacturer hand in hand with my favorite amusement park (and chain for that matter) I hope this project is real as I can't think of a more appropriate addition to Cedar Point.

Keep it up Cedar Fair! We love ya!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I bet a very neat entry path for those entering from the west would be constructed. That could also be a faster route for Millennium Force morning runners. :Pr
Coaster Count: 10 wood - 46 steel

I go to furry parties, I'm probably a brony too...

This ride would look quite beautiful next to Raptor. There's just something about the two that make them look so photogenic to each other.
I'm done.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

I'm not much of a B&M fan so the possibility of a dive machine doesn't excite me. I would much rather see an RMC Mean Streak transformation or an Intamin wooden coaster. Whatever the new coaster ends up being I will ride it every visit whether I'm a fan of it or not.

Donkeys are my way of life!

This excites me as I did enjoy Griffon quite a lot. Ready to see how this plays out, we still have at least a half a year until we find out if this is true or not. That's a long time for more speculation.
Top coasters: Maverick, Storm Runner, Skyrush, Steel Vengeance, Fury 325, Titan, Phoenix, NTAG, Apollo, Blue Streak.

Love the idea of a new coaster at CP, but I would like to see the company focus on some of their other parks over the next few years!!

I absolutely love B&M Dive machines. Despite their short ride time they are a lot of fun to me and scare me a little bit the climb up and then the drop. I hope we can get some new elements into this ride. But after gate keeper I am not holding my breath or something too different

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Leaked @CedarPoint memo describes 2016 Dive Machine as 223 ft. tall, 80 mph, 2 drops, 4 inversions. http://t.co/Qa2Snyb5kU
Is this a trick question?
