I'm glad that Universal went with something different and not just a B&M Hyper like Hollywood Dream for their new coaster.
I think I may have said this in another thread, but I totally agree with this. B&M today is the same as Arrow was in the early 90's. Every park had one. It gets tired. With the exception of Flyers (to which I haven't ridden yet) every B&M is more the same. We're getting to the point that every state with a park has at least one.

While I agree it's probably a B&M, I don't think you can use that argument, especially when Universal just down the street chose to go with a different company even though they have several B&M's and just bought two Premier Coasters.
The plans I've seen for the ride show it's a B&M flyer with a splash pool like SheiKra where the flamingos used to be at the entrance to the park. The name they were looking at was "Mantaray" and themed after a stingray.
The queue aquarium will have stingrays swimming around you (Think "Sharks!")
Also, I know it's hard to believe... but from the renderings it was a launched coaster :-\ ... I know B&M doesn't do launches, but maybe they're gonna be like Universal and do it themselves.
