Premier does have some interesting variations on the Skyrush concept. Looks like Wild Artic may get bit more wild.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

My "quick google" yielded nothing reliable. The only thing I can trust is from a powerpoint SeaWorld made about their future plans that shows a generic picture of a launch coaster that looks to be from premier with all stats "TBD." Everything else was enthusiast speculation.

Irregardless of manufacturer or coaster type, I'm sure it'll be awesome!

My "quick google" definitely brings up the layout boldikus is talking about. It's the 5th image I see.

You may think it's just enthusiast speculation, but it was referenced by blueprint documents found filed at the city, it is a breakdown of the layout based off footer/height specs. It's going to be a multi-launcher, starting precisely as that Star Trek coaster does, with a transfer and reverse spike. Then it's going through a bunch of maneuvers including a top hat element similar to Storm Runner at Hershey, albeit taller. I can't remember exactly the manufacturer, but my gut from what I remember is Intamin.

Which as far as I'm concerned, as long as it's not a B&M I think we will all be pleasently surprised. Way too many watered down B&M in the states, I want to start seeing more Intamins and Macks. I really think this installation at SWO is going to be set apart from a lot of the other rides in the park, perhaps the most popular in the park.

It's a Premier Rides multi-launcher. Slide track after the station...reverse spike....3-4 launches (depending on if it launches forward or backwards first)....top hat....and then finishes the course. It will run between Shamu Stadium, behind Mango Joe's & over to Bayside Stadium and over by the education pavilions before making it's way back to the station. The queue will be built in the current outdoor seating area of Mango Joe's with the entrance to the right of Mango Joe's (as if headed to the bridge). A new outdoor seating area will be built on the other side of the restaurant, which will also be re-branded.

Respectfully, is anyone even completely certain that it's from Premier Rides? Apart from that really rough concept image I don't see anything that corroborates that...

It wouldn't be a bad thing, but I'm surprised people are so certain about it (even if it does eventually end up being correct).

With the new coaster at SeaWorld and RMC Gwazi both coming in 2020 (I'm just assuming RMC Gwazi is a 2020 attraction) it might be time to renew my SeaWorld/BGT combo pass.

I was wondering the same thing. I wouldn't mind at all if it were made by Premier, but why did we rule out Intamin? Wasn't that the original manufacturer listed somewhere when it was leaked?

Either way, a multi-launcher / shuttle coaster will be a nice addition to SWO. I am still in shock that each major SeaWorld / Busch park is getting a major coaster in 2020.
