I think this ride could actually be a backwards launch, based only on the fact that the spike would be much more fun, and surprising if you were going backwards.

I'd like to buy a vowel!

My thoughts exactly. They're too similar.

^I was thinking the same thing.

With that being said, I am a huge Intamin fanboy and would never complain if this coaster turns out to be true. Just trying to manage my expectations...

I was thinking that after the spike if there was another switch track. While traveling between the first and second launches. That sent you to the brakes (and a full circuit) - it would be crazy. So many direction changes.

The train should have the seats in split directions. 3 cars forward 3 backward


As is though - if it’s right - keeps BGW as a top worldwide park

Initial thoughts: This is cool.

Wait, is this just an energy efficient new model of Superman (SFMM)/Tower of Terror (Dreamworld) Intamin Reverse Freefall coaster? :lmao:

Remember when this same source leaked the original Pantheon specs and everyone on here said it was bullsh*t and then it turned out it was 100% on the money? Good times.

Hey, all I said was that I'd laugh if that were the case, not discounting it all together.

After reading through the headache-inducing write ups on that other site, yeah I believe it's coming too. I'd still be extremely surprised if it was the 2021 attraction...just doesn't make sense to me to open major coasters in back to back years, but what do I know?

It doesn't make sense, but nothing SEAS is doing right now does. Who are we to question it when it means making it rain with new coasters?

It would be weird for any chain but Seaworld San Diego has opened 3 coasters in 3 years (with a 4th seemingly on the way near Wild Arctic next year), Busch Tampa has opened Tigris and Iron Gwazi in back-to-back years, SeaWorld San Antonio has opened 2 coasters in 3 years and in the "off" year they added 2 rides and a new animal exhibit and SeaWorld Orlando has filed permits for what seems to be another major coaster the year after they open Ice Breaker (and a year after adding a multi-million dollar record breaking rapids ride).

This is just what SEAS is doing now. I don't get it either but I'm not complaining. :lol:
