This would work if it was themed to a storm, but the theme still seems like they didn't want to give up Diavolo.

The ride is based on a daredevil whose name was "Tempesto", according to the leaked ride description on the website.

The name seems pretty misleading.

I guess they didn't want to use my logo.

How? It's just the "stage name" of a daredevil character.

^ Because that name actually means something that is a theme used for a lot of other coasters and would (somewhat) match the color scheme.

The full site leak courtesy of BGWFans! I cut out all the unnecessary stuff and left the juicy details.

Not too keen on the height requirement. Wish the shoulder harnesses allowed a lower height restriction.
Ride slated to open in April.

Ahh, you're right! I bet everyone's going to be confused and unsure about the theme of the coaster because the definition of a variant of the name is comparable to that of multiple coasters in a 3,000+ mile radius. How could they not have thought of that? Disappointing, I'm certainly not going to Busch Gardens this year after this.

^^^ Does it say "Unbelievably tight turns"? Doesn't not have any turns?

This is a nice initiative from BGW for sure, there is not doubt about it. If only the transformation was not overlaping the interest of the other guests (even including themselves)... Less comfort, less thrill and above all, more waiting time (Granted the people will struggle with the harness).

I only wish they'd done it right. How so? 100% custom trains that is, not a frankenstein monster that will -I say it again- truly decrease the capacity of that already low-capacity ride.
Sure it would have been more expensive to make a custom designed train, but hey, life is unfair and everything has a cost. Or better yet, they could have picked another manufacturer at the start.

Disabled people can't ride about 80% of the coaster on Earth (just a guess). I don't think they will mind that much if they can't pick any row here (plus the train is relatively short, so the experience is about the same).
