I agree with Robb, at least on the overall layout of the track (at least what we can see from 8 seconds). Most of the clip that we've seen has you in a trench, and obviously Baco spends a good amount of time in the trench as well, so the connections to Baco seem very prevalent right now. As more clips come out, we may see a separation of design that makes it seem more like Mav. I cringed when Robb directly compared it to Baco because that coaster just seems boring and uninspired.. The layout for the BGT-2011 coaster seems a little more exciting from what we've been told so far. And it won't have crappy wing-rider trains (worst 'gimmick' since the standup coaster).
It will be two hours away from me!!! YAY FOR ME!!!!
Unless the new ride has wing walker seats, I don't see how/why you would compare this ride to Baco. Do you know something we don't Robb? From the video, it looks like the seats are centered over the track, so while it hugs the ground going extremely fast with launches throughout the course, I'm thinking Maverick was the inspiration for the ride.
