    What does everyone think, will this be an Intamin or Mack much like Blue Fire?

    Personally I am leaning towards Intamin, just wanting to see what everyone is thinking.

    Actually, I remember when I was looking at the engineering plans, and it seems that there may be a body of water under that bridge.

    As awesome as it would be to have all the details disclosed then, I personally find that highly unlikely. Don't expect anything till late in the summer, after the Potter buzz dies down a bit.

    Wow starting footer work already, I can't get over how fast this is going. Again many thanks to BGTguide for the updates.

    The Train's bridge over the "launch trench" looks to be really low, I believe that means the trench will be REALLY deep, or the coaster will go over it (like Maverick's lift I would hope). But both have a problem... if the train goes under, than like I said, it would be really a deep trench and the train's bridge doesn't really look that strong to support it; if it goes over, what's the point of the trench? Am I not seeing something, or am I just going crazy?

    Does anyone know (or a rough estimate) of when a formal announcement will be made from BG about the coaster? Over the summer maybe?

    Probably not going to be until the end of the summer rush. My guess would be mid to late September post labor day.

    Thanks hatetofly. I was just curious, as it seems a lot of progress is being made.

    Thanks for posting that hatetofly! I've been skipping the updates for almost a month and have finally checked that one out and I'm impressed. The progress is just extremely swift on Busch Garden's part. I'm curious to see when we finally spot the first car/piece of track.

    From the Sea World and Busch Garden's Passport Pulse:

    This confirms the name of the area that was talked about a couple weeks ago with the permit found some time back.

    Well, there was a little informatino shared in the UK yesterday.

    Plans for Busch Gardens have been kept under wraps but the park has revealed that guests will “feel the spirit, feel the speed.” The all-new attraction will combine new adventures and up-close animal encounters. "Guests know that a visit to any of our parks brings them closer to the world we share,” said SeaWorlds Parks & Entertainment President and Chief Operating Officer Jim Atchison. “It's our culture and our heritage to bring quality entertainment and thrills, support conservation efforts and offer guests a real sense of discovery and learning."
