^Thanks Robb. Furius Baco is actually what I first thought of when I saw the schematic of the proposed coaster. I don't think it'll be the wingrider but if that concept is true and it turns out to be a launched coaster, let alone a launched Intamin, I'm gonna be pysched anyways.
Do you think there's a chance we can see the next WingWalker going to Busch Gardens Africa?
It would be a first in America so who knows. Although it is said that B&M could start making launch coasters in 2011 and given the good relationship between Busch Gardens and B&M I wouldn't be surprised if they got the prototype. After all BGA also built the first extended B&M Dive Machine and signed an exclusivity contract with B&M...
This is really exciting to have found this--this track layout looks like it's going to be massive!
As much as I love B&Ms, I would really like to see this become an Intamin along the lines of Furius Baco because that concept has always looked intense and fun. Of course, I wouldn't be disappointed with a B&M launched coaster, especially if it's a prototype (and knowing how Busch rolls and with the rumors of their exclusivity contract with B&M, I'm not getting my hopes up too high for an Intamin ride), but I agree with Elissa in that some variety is needed.
I really do hope it's an Intamin. I've never ridden one and I've heard many great reviews. Plus, I think the Furius Baco style would be fantastic! What ever it is, I know that I'll have fun with it! WHOO HOO!
I think the Furius Baco style ride is very plausible, considering the style of the old Monorail Station it's supposed to be held in. It'd be perfect. Though, I hope Intamin have improved the trains, as I heard it's a bit shaky on the outside seat, but that's hard to avoid.
Though, I will say, when I envision this ride in my head, I totally see Maverick. I mean, with a track layout this long, I wouldn't be surprised it being a coaster with short, but multiple trains instead of two or three longer ones.
^Yea, at this point I would lean towards a "Maverick type" Intamin coaster too. If memory serves me correct, I believe Busch was very curious about Storm Runner a few years back. ...Though I can't remember where I heard that from.
