Thanks! Big Bad Wolf, Another Arrow Suspened Swinging Coaster is no more!
Who will take BBW's place then?
You've crossed the boundary, WMG!

^ Rumor says another coaster or a new land...

A B&M flyer seems to be the most likely result though since that's the only B&M project that has yet to be built at BGW (this isn't counting sit-down because BGW has LNM). Although under new management, the coaster can be anything.

As for the new land, Spain seems to be a very popular rumor going around at the moment.

^Just for clarification--when you say Intamin "terra" does that include coasters like Maverick and iSpeed?

I would definitely be down for a launch coaster into the woods!

Isnt terra the denomination for 400 feet or higher coaster?

Mega-200
Giga-300
Terra - 400

As in, megabyte-gigabyte-terrabye (orders of magnitude?)

I'd wager busch gardens will never build a taller ride than griffon, but a low-flying terrain launched intamin would be super tasty. The BBW area could even use one of those launched "cars to the side of the track" intamin rides, though I've heard the one that exists is terrible. Having said that, the B&M flyer seems most likely, although I bet all eyes in the entertainment world are on cedar fair to see if their intimdator investments will pay off. If not, I foresee a dark 2010's for coasters. (Quick everyone, visit carowinds and KD)

^400+ is "Strata." "Terra" refers to the ground, as in a coaster that hugs the ground. I think we could almost call I305 a terracoaster, but I'm pretty sure Maverick is the only one that's been officially deemed one.

Ah. You might as well call it a terrain coaster then, because the ex-BBW location is actually nice and hilly.

Damnit now I miss BBW again. :cry:

You know what would be an awesome fit at a park like BGW?

Furius Baco!

And you never know... You guys are only focusing on coaster types that are "common" right now, but keep in mind it was Busch Gardens that re-introduced us to Dive Machines!

Think outside the box as to what their next coaster might be!
