From what I understand, this ride will not have wing walker trains. There was a site that revealed some sketches which showed maverick/ fahrenheit/ispeed style trains.

Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure"
Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father!
Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"

That nine seconds of video makes me think we *could* very well have the definitive US Intamin coaster on the way. At least I hope so.

I thought that part of the debate was settled a long time ago.

After seeing the video of TPR on Furius Baco, I think I'd rather it not have Wing Walker trains.

This ride is looking seriously great. I like the idea of the multiple launches & it hugging the ground in certain spots. May have to make it back down to BGT this season.
1. Intimidator 305 2. Maverick 3. Bizarro at SFNE 4. Millennium Force 5. Raptor
6. Batman & Robin: The Chiller (defunct) 7. Nitro 8. Apollo's Chariot 9. Afterburn (Carowinds) 10. Lightning Racer

:omg: Holy freakin WOW who would of thought 9 seconds could look so amazing

This ride is looking exactly like I thought it would... ground hugging, speed, pops of airtime, highly themed BGT looks to have a winner and that's just from 9 seconds, I can't wait to see the rest of it.

I Love Donkeys!

The tower element will be something like this. The drop may be less steep and I may have the support connections mixed up but thats the general idea. The track goes under that top banner from the launch in front of the station.

Looks like one of the trenches will have a waterfall at the end of it. I think this one is near the third launch.

These videos are going to be fun, they revealed a lot of info in the first one. I love the color of the track and the look of the trenches. The layout is already looking cool with a fast pop of airtime. The last airtime hill on Maverick is awesome. I bet Intamin took what was good on Maverick and Fahrenheit to create Cheetaka. Plus the figure 8 element will be something brand new.


Cheetaka is officially Florida's best coaster :airtime: :lmao:

WOW! This looks phenomenal...I really hope it does incorporate a lot of quick changes of direction like on Maverick in some point during the ride; from what I can see in this video it looks like it is mainly about speed, which makes sense given the theme, and that is certainly alright with me. I can't wait to see more because this ride is going to be soooo SICK!!!
