Why do I feel like this is going to be like the Behemoth-Leviathan and Intimidator-Fury. Enthusiasts will complain the rides for being too similar while they're under construction, but they will wholeheartedly praise the new ride once it actually opens.
Top 3 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland) Top 3 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce Most Recent Trip Reports- Holiday World & Indiana Beach

Theres a link sanitized article detailing it a few pages back
If what's leaking about the 2021 ride turns out to be true (and given the source it probably is) I just can't even believe it. It sounds kinda short and weird but given its another Intamin its going to probably be amazing.
My favorite park is getting two insane looking Intamins back to back what in the f*ck is actually happening???
Well I did see a video about this new project (and thus far they've been darn near spot on) and well....that is something. I love a unique coaster, and it looks pretty dope, but...what? It seems like it should've been part of Pantheon which, according to the internets, it was supposed to be? Shame that would've been nuts.
And yes, with RMC (rightfully) dominating the 2010s glad Intamin is showing they're still in the game

The spike will start in a valley and extend to the full 355 height clearance. So the spike will be around 375-395 feet tall meaning the top speed will be over 100mph.
If it doesn’t meet that speed then why even install this. I also wish it was a full circuit and it featured a non inverting loop. Or pantheon had the non inverting loop and this had a top hat. Either way.
I'm not a betting man, but if I were, I would bet heavily that the 2021 coaster is going to have "Drachen" somewhere in the name!
Also, regardless of how "needed" this new coaster is, or whether it's what everybody wanted, it looks wild, fun, and at a park that's already as amazing as BGW is (and is about to become even more so), it's just a stunning addition, and absolutely cements this as a top tier park in the entire country, and world!

I'm gonna laugh if this turns out to be nothing more than some alternate plans of Pantheon with an incorrect date on them.
