I've studied the two clips as well and haven't seen anything that will get me on a plane to Tampa....

Looks very dull from the first 2 clips...hopefully more to come. What was the point of clip 2? It showed the same stuff as Clip1. Unless this is all there is...

Wow, this is groundbreaking, even for CoasterBuzz. Approximately 11 to 12 seconds of animated footage, and the complaints are already rolling in! :)

I guess it could be fun. Do we know what launch mechanism they've opted for?

I agree. People have shown a lot of restraint here. The complaints usually start before the announcement is even made.

Buzz bears.

(Came about when one of my friends accidentally typed "buzz bear" instead of "buzz bar." So of course I had to run with it. We dined on blue steak afterward.)

Overhead layout pics have leaked on the internet. It's going to be a pretty long ride. Looking good so far!

Do you have a link to this? I'm curious to see.

Overhead Layout.

I also remember seeing a leaked picture of the four car trains with over the shoulder restraints. The picture has since been taken down so I can't confirm.

Looks to me like there could possibly be three inversions (heartline rolls)- or none at all. There are no obvious loops or flat spins.

As a side note of courtesy - please do not Direct link to those images (which wasn't done yet!)

"Please, no direct linking to the image or redistributing of the images elsewhere."

I'm sure their server doesn't like the traffic.

Those clips look pretty gosh darn exciting to me. I don't know if it's enough to make me buy a plane ticket to Tampa, but if I were going to Orlando anyway -- say to visit a certain new magical castle -- it would certainly be enough to warrant a side trip.

Edited: it's 'know', not 'no'. ::facepalm::

Mechanics aside, (I'm a programmer not an engineer) I don't think it had anything to do with the ride...

The park outright said it was because of stress and wear and tear on the axles. If it were anything else, why would they have agreed to it in the first place?

You're very subtle, Jerry. That's probably the main reason you don't have any friends. ;)

Perhaps... Although I wish folks would slow down and appreciate the subtle things in life... We live in a rush society and there is something to be said for subtlety...

So everyone put down their Double Venti Expresso 5 hour energy Metabolife laced drinks, Pour yourself a nice cool glass of lemonade, and sit back and relax!

+1 for Vater!

(...If I was authorized to hand out +1s.)

Did anyone remember that RUSH is also the secret word for clip two? That was strange.

So far, it looks like speed and turns. If it's doesn't have any speed to go with that meandering, it's gonna suck. I think it'll have some good speed though. Look at it's theme.

Something that I just noticed, which most of us probably noticed, is that clip 2 is the section of track that is returning towards the station, going over the section of track that is in clip one, which is going away from the station.

It appears to be LSMs from the track that has arrived on site.

The next clue word is GRACE to unlock the third video. This time it shows the beginning of the ride. There is a left hand turn out of the station and into a trench where it then launches under a themed arch into what looks to be a vertical climb followed by a descending figure eight element. Afterwards, it drops down into another trench, which is the end of clip 3 but what's next is shown in clip 1. Looks like it will be a pretty unique layout.
