    My one trip to BGT so far, Cobra was down but Cheetah seemed to be running fine (there was a line every time I went by it at least. I got it out of the way first)

    Way too late for Universal to change coaster manufacturer because of Hagrid. Pretty sure the track is laying at some plant awaiting transport.

    Might have been the day, but waited in line three separate times throughout the day. Fingers crossed this coaster won't have any of these reoccurring technical difficulties.

    Always thought the Tm of the month for River Adventure should get their name tag pinned on the shirt the dinosaurs fight over.

    It's the elevator lift that cause the majority of downtime

    New gen Intamin track, like Hyperion or the new Walibi Belgium coaster. Interesting.

    Then what track is it? I don't know of anything else it could be for, unless it's something Fantastic Worlds' related.

    Unless they changed color or it’s part of the track for a show scene and purposefully painted black...

    I think it might be the latter. If it isn't, why the heck is there ride track for UFW on site before vertical construction has started? That's extremely weird.

    Not to start any crazy rumors, but could they perhaps be replacing some of Mummy's track during an extended refurb?

    Or, perhaps, proof of concept for something FW related

    The only reason I'm saying all this is because that doesn't look like Intamin track

    I re-read the article and he doesn’t mention if the track is Universals property so it could be for another project, maybe SWO?

    Also Josh still pushing that Nintendo scale back story lol

    It doesn't look like Premier track to me, but maybe it might be for an unannounced WDW project?

    It's the double spine Intamin track found on rides like Intimidator 305 and Hyperion.

    It looks like it's their plot of land off Carrier/Precision drive, near the Dockside resort.

    That's almost impossible to tell from that one image.

    It does look similar

    I really don't think this coaster will be black, unless it's for a show scene like Joe said
