I was so bummed when Screamscape pulled that April fools joke by saying that B&M track was on site. I REALLY hope the rumors about this project being an Intamin coaster are true, judging by the rumored layout this thing looks like it could be a huge project.
If the rumors are true and that layout is true, then this will be one massive ride! I mean two launches? Not unheard of, yet if Intiman is making this ride i'm sure it will definitely pack a punch.
Quick question, but where else can Busch Garden's Tampa expand? I mean it looks like this ride is all over the place and they will have to either get rid of or move part of Rhino Ralley to squeeze it in. What other land does Busch have available to them?
It looks like an Intamin to me. if you look closely at the transfer brakes you can see an Intamin style switch track. The only thing that I find curious is whats up with the the weird twists and turns out of the station... Maybe it launches out of the station...
^^I do believe they've already said that Rhino Rally is changing next year and won't involve the water anymore. Unless I'm mistaken, they have had a TON of maintenance problems with the water finale and just want to "re-profile" the ride. And since they'll have that canyon already built, it only makes sense to use it for this potential coaster.
^If I had to speculate about the twists and turns out of the station, my guess is it would just be some kind of "pre-launch" themed part of the ride, maybe inside of a tunnel or trench?
So can someone screenshot the satellite image of the park and paint in where this ride is going to be? I know where the Rhino Rally canyons are, but I'm having a hard time conceptualizing in my head which direction the rest of that layout is heading.

I'm no engineer but these schematics appear to potentially include several inversions, including zero-g rolls (after the main launch) and corkscrews (near the top of he diagram). I am stoked about seeing the concept artwork and animated POV for this ride!
