Could it possibly be BM track laying on its side? However most times when you see bm track arrive it normally sits upright so maybe, maybe not. I can't believe im getting suckered into this speculation.:P

Whatever it is I hope it loops, because i'm getting tired of lets make it 17 seconds but the tallest and fastest, yeah thats a great idea. Make something that will be fun over and over again...RAPTOR is a perfect example like i said in my prior post. If it a looping coaster i have given up on CP because they need to put something that will make ur headspin.

Is there truth to Intamin a 4-D style coaster? Did they show this at Iaapa or something?

I agree with what has been said before. The hint about "two and two" seems important. Like Eric, I initially thought dueling coaster since there has been internet buzz for years now about a CP dueling coaster. At the same time though pkidelirium's comment is interesting. I remember seeing pictures on the internet just a few months ago detailing Intamin's stab at a 4D coaster. Interesting possibility, although the water ride makes the most sense.

Scroll down the page a bit to see some pictures of the Intamin ball coaster. *** Edited 5/5/2006 2:38:45 AM UTC by CoasterMatt***

Ok, so it is def coaster track, and we think it's Intamin.

This speculation is going to kill me. And it's only May 4... ;) Great. I love it though.

No loops Raptorman. I'm getting old and don't like OSTRs too much anymore. I would however like to see a 4D coaster since it might be years 'til I get out to Magic Mountain.

I think it would make sense.

CP was building a coaster every 2 years or so; they are most certainly due for a new one. I honestly don't think it will be another hyper coaster, but that would be nice.

Wait...you don't like loops or OSTRs and yet you want a 4D? You realize the one at SFMM has OSTRs and inversions, right?

Best (and most) blue tarp on the planet!

Just to point out the obvious, why do you think Intamin is still getting business from CP? They majorly screwed up their last product there (TTD) and MF has recently become a sore point due to the restraint issue. I guess Im suprised that CP isnt laying off that company for a while.

I didn't realize that track was exclusive to the accelerator coasters:

Count me as surprised that it looks to be Intamin track.

For some reason, I actually did notice that tarp & stuff over next to Breakers Express.

When Kinzel was asked today about the 'rock garden' and when there'd be an announcement, he replied "Oh no, do you think it's going to be ready for Saturday?!"

That gave me a good chuckle - Whatever it is, it should be good. I think Kinzel is having a little fun with this whole thing. 'Na na na na na naaaaa'

The Intamin Ball coaster track shown in that link is box-track just for a tiny little test-track, I highly doubt they would move to the lower-structural tri-track for a bigger, fuller design. It's a possibility, but a low one at best.

B&M is possible for the shape to the right, but look to the left, with the way the connector (flat circle) and the rail (little circle) are oriented, I doubt it; plus what you said about B&M always sitting on its spine.

No, it could not be Arrow/S&S 4D, there's no way in hell on that one. Shape is completely wrong.

For some reason I'm being ridiculously coastergeeky with this right now and I checked out the pictures of Colossus at Thorpe. While there is a lot of tri-track on that one, very little of it is as straight as the one piece seen in those pictures. I'm beginning to think we might see a custom-design here if anything.

My only argument with that would be that "X" pretty much developed out of nowhere, but I think it's just too early to make any guesses.

I don't really understand how "2 and 2" means dueling, either. Wouldn't that be "1 and 1" ?

trust me its triangular track. There is one picture that shows it perfectly.

IT looks like the triangle track that they are using on the newer accelerator coasters.

Maybe its another excelerator coaster but it wont break height and speed records.

Maybe it will be more like storm runner or the one that opened in april in europe.

sounds plausable. they already know how to maintain one.

"The path always taken is not necessarily the Best".

I believe this may point to the path leading to the Frontier Trail. The bridge by Snake River Falls has 3 teaser signs about the construction. There are footers everywhere back in the old White Water Landing Area. On our way to Media day for Skyhawk we about drove into the lake when we drove around the back of the park near Mean Streak with all the land clearing and footers everywhere. Whatever it may be, Its going to be huge.

I don't think there is any practical reason for one park to have more than one accelerator coaster. *** Edited 5/5/2006 12:55:33 PM UTC by MForce2k***
