^They are having a 'bring your own Allen Wrench and pliers to remove the shoulder bars' party.
^ did you ever make it up to CW this year? Or did it get put off?
^Nope, didn't make it yet. May have to wait until next year :(
Don't be too sad... New coaster and such.
They have just started digging up a staggering # of parking spots for this ride. Most of the ride is not however in the parking lot.
The most recent rumour is a Giga Launch coaster with inversions after the mid course. ;) The funny thing is that i'm not making this up, it's actually the common thought on the local fan page.

^oooh! Early 90's aqua :)
Supports in the house!
I saw the truck carrying these on I-71 NB coming from the Cincinnati area on Friday evening, if that means anything.
Not only supports, but B&M supports. And by the looks of that tag supports for a(nother) mega coaster... Label Pic from CWMania
I am really confused about two things here.
1. If that label reads the way I think it does, then why another Mega at CW?
2. What would B&M be doing to warrant the statement given by the enthusiast? (putting massive hype aside)
The only answer I can come up with that answers both of these questions is that B&M is about to do something none of us thought was going to happen. I have no idea what it is, but it has to be something pretty out there.
All I see is a bunch of gibberish when I look at that label. You must know secret enthusiast code or something.
How is that a confirmation of b&m?
I am referring to the "Part number" section of the label. It seems that the first two letters of that number are abbreviation for the coaster type. I know that Intimidator had MC for it's number and that is a mega coaster. Sheikra has DM for dive machine. (this is in the "DESC" part which is the "part number" on newer labels) The inverted coaster going in a Parc Asterix has IC in this portion of the number. So I do not see why this would be any different. :)
Pictures of labels below with a few more thrown in that I am not quite sure about yet. :)
Intimidator (Carrowinds Connection)
Sheikra Edit: have to google ("Sheikra B&M label", forgot we can't have TPR on here)
Inverted Coaster going in at Parc Asterix (Screamscape)
Hair Raiser (Note; this says SC because I think a floorless might still considered a sitting coaster by B&M in terms of manufacture (Thrillnetwork)
Dollywood 2012 (rumored wingrider, notice the WI in the part number (Thrillnetwork)

EDIT to add: That is a B&M part label Tekwardo, and some of these pieces were seen leaving on flatbeds from the Cincinnati area, around where the B&M plant is located.
Holy cow. That's crazy and not something I'd ever be able to figure out on my own.
There is alot of clues that lead into all sorts of directions on this coaster. I haven't ruled out anything yet. I was however about 95% sure this coaster was going to have a launch. Anyone think B&M will try their hand with another launch?
|I believe it's going to be a combo of 2 excisting idea's.... Such as floorless giga, lauched giga with inversions, possibly a wing rider dive machine.... who knows. Obviously it won't be a B&M hyper like the code suggests. Maybe 200' but with more to it. Two B&M hypers at one park... whats next 2 water coasters at one park... oh wait ;)
Wow. A genuine Paul Reuben quote! I'm sooooo excited now! This is the coaster I've been waiting for! :)
Please, Cedar Fair...don't name it Raptor.
Kevin: Don't worry, they are more likely to call it "Thunderhawk."
