I'm basing it off of the shape and style of the indention in the middle of the footer.

I hadn't noticed that at first. They seems to be a fairly good clue. But, I wouldn't make a definitive statement just based on that.

there are currently 2 main producers of steel coasters of this size: B&M and Intamin.

So, you already know how big the coaster is going to be? What about Vekoma, Premier, Maurer Söhne, Gerstlauer, am I missing any?

Touche. But I'm still holding strong that its going to be B&M.

I am judging the size from the spiraling footers and land clearing.

Way to go out on a limb.

If guessing the coaster manufacturer was a flavor - picking B&M would be Vanilla.

The park needs some more Vekoma, Invertigo and Firehawk just don't beat you up enough ;)

Sounds right.

Intamin would be Chocolate.

Togo would be cat poop.

I hear Chocolate ice cream tends to overheat and melts quickly.

A while back in a post about the B&M factory about Gatekeeper I threw out a fishing line to Jeff about whether they were any other coasters being manufactured at the time of his visit. I do believe he took the bait but no one attempted to reel him in. So again I will cast a line and see if we can catch something........

There is at least one b&m in production for next year for over seas so that really means little to nothing.

When was the last year that there wasn't even a single new B&M?

That's what I thought...

Well, the "dive" clues turned out to actually be legit...for the dive-in movies that Kings Island just announced for their wave pool starting this weekend.

Those dive-in movies sound AWESOME. If I lived within 30 minutes of Kings Island, I would be there for all of them. It's a unique experience!

Actually The Beach water park (right across the street from Kings Island) has been doing Dive-In movies for years.

It's unique in the the sense that all things directly ripped off from a competitor across the street is unique.

(and Zoombezi Bay in Columbus does Dive-In movies...)

Come to think of it, there's little unique about it - waterparks and community pools all over have done this.
