What I'm trying to figure out is what the design of the front car or the "zero car" (if it is one) looks like.
This is the best job Busch Gardens has done hyping a coaster up. They're really playing up to the enthusiasts and the GP about what this is going to be. A+ Busch Gardens. A+!

I have come to fall more in love with the Busch Gardens family after spending a couple days at Busch Gardens Williamsburg this past summer!!
This is really exciting news for Tampa and I'm hoping this attraction will be complete by the time I hit up Florida!!
Bring it on!!

I fully agree. Busch is doing an amazing job hyping this coaster. The teaser videos are great.

That said, I just got to watch the video and my mouth dropped open. And I watched it 3 more times. I am seriously excited about this coaster!

OMG, I'm so excited about this ride!! After seeing this video I think I jizzed in my pants a lot!! I loved Maverick, so if this thing is anything close to it, which it appears to be similar, it should be a kick a$$ ride! I'm definitely going to BGA next season after this opens.

Yeah there are two launches very early on. Launch out of the station then you go into that overbanked turn over the indoor cheetah holding area. Right after that turn its into the boosters to the tower.

I am not 100% sure about all the inversions, a while back someone showed me a picture from Busch that had the layout and there is one labeled "Heartline Roll over RR" which would be the element someone circled from the video. Then there is a "heartline roll" in the old rhino rally water area, and then a third "corkscrew" over the EoA path. That was pretty early though and some things may have changed.

Is it just me or does the animation make those trenches look way too narrow for a wing walker style train?
