Connect the dots! La la la la!

Seriously...I can't help but be excited just based on how large the site is.

Yeah... I agree. I think others do too. Just a thought though.

its obviously not a small plot of land, but its kinds small anyway. either this is a brand new concept (duh) or im thinking that they are going for a speed record, its possible..*** This post was edited by mike.s. 5/29/2006 7:31:35 PM ***

The land pictures reveal that the land isn't as large as I thoguht it was. I am betting that the coaster isn't going to be contained on that plot of land and it will probably travel throughout the park. I think it would be awesome to have a coaster that went super fast and weaved all around the park thorugh trees and underground, instead of going for a new height record. However a 400ft coaster does sound appetizing.

I think it looks like an Intamin looper based on the shape of some sections of track. I see a few barrel-roll entrance/exit pieces there. Dont expect to see a coaster that is spread out, the pond is as far as it is going out...and that looks like some diving turn, or a helix section.

Whatever it is, it will be fun, and I'm glad CP isn't telling us anything so we can play the guessing game :)

OrientExpressKid may have the right idea. It doesn't look to me like this coaster will travel throughout the park. I'm not as well versed in identifying possible elements, so it's interesting to hear some educated guesses. Jubilee, as cool as underground tunnels would be, I doubt if CP could build them because I would assume the water table is very high.

I agree; doubt it'll travel all over the place. You can do alot with a coaster with a plot of land that size. Especially being CP.

Whatever it is, I can't wait to find out more! =)

Call that small? Looks like Mean Streak could fit in it.

I was at Cedar Point this past weekend, and while standing in line for Mean Streak, I over heard a ride op tell a gentleman that it was going to be the first flying coaster with a launch. I don't know if anyone has heard this, but that what he said. The ride op also said that it was only going to be like 125 ft. tall but with the take off, it didn't need to be that tall. That what I overheard.

I really don't think it's going to be a flying coaster unless Intamin started making them. If you haven't already seen them, there's pictures of the track and it's definatly not B&M.

And B&M didn't make flying coasters before SUF. First time for everything. Any of you track afficianados gotten a good enough look to tell if the track is more like Volcano's or the above-the-track variety?

Look at the footers in the pond. This looks like nothing that would travel below the track, to me at least.

That's just what I heard the ride op say...I didn't say it was true.

Maybe it will be something like Storm Runner at Hersheypark.

Intamin doesnt make flyers but they make the Ball coaster, which somebody could kinda call a flyer.

I still see more of a family type of coaster in the layout of the footers. Something along the lines of Italian Job at PKI and PKD and PCWonderland.

Nonsense! That's too logical, too feasible, not fantastic enough.
