That figure 8 element is high up in the air. Remember this picture:

Those are the supports for it, you launch into that element. From that tower, you drop into the trench that is along side the sky ride building. I can assure you the trench that is near the sky ride does not house a launch, I think it was assumed because it was a long straight piece of track. We know where all the launches will be, there is only 3 of them.

In fact here is a profile view of the trench near the sky ride building.

Looking at the video again, I am sure that it is starting in that trench. That video is picking up right after the drop out of the tower element, that path it goes under is the train bridge. However I do not see the pond that is supposed to go over.

So is it too early to speculate what kind of restraints this will have? :lol:

Ratmead: Where are the 3 launches then, if one is not through that trench?

I'm assuming there will be two launches very early in the ride then. ...Out of the station and before the tower element? The third will be on the return back to the station.

It is like maverick a little bit...

Of course if the ride is named cheetah trench, then it definitely would be CF material!

WOW! I'm definitely going to have to check out BGT when I go to Florida this summer! The ride looks very VERY long for a rocket coaster. Glad to see it will have multiple launch points which will be great for speed, and lots of blocking (capacity). I imagine it will be very exhilirating rushing over the savannah like that. Also looks like there's a possibility of some duel action... ;)

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has sent us a press release regarding their latest phase of marketing for the 2011 coaster.

Amidst the latest round of internet rumors as to what Busch Gardens Tampa Bay may be building in Crown Colony Plaza, the adventure park launched today the next chapter in a teaser campaign that began early this summer.

Starting today, guests who log on to http://www.BuschGardens2011.com will have the opportunity to enter code words and unlock their first glimpse as to what the new attraction will look like. Each week, the site will offer another clue will be shared as to where to find the next code word. The first code word, “CHASE,” was shared on the park’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/BuschGardensTampaBay) this afternoon.

The BuschGardens2011.com site launched in June with a series of short videos highlighting attributes of the new attraction – including speed, power and agility – which could also be accessed by guests with smartphones via QR codes on the park’s construction walls. In August, the site began featuring a series of video messages by Busch Gardens officials offering hints about the theme and scope of the project.

This third phase – the most interactive yet for fans – will lead up to the official attraction announcement, which is scheduled for mid-October.
