How have I not known about this until now? That looks like a sweet turnaround and I think it'll be a lot cooler than a hammerhead.

Woah. Look at this tiny little hill coming out of the turnaround:

This actually looks awesome!

Walter and Claude are going big these days, that's for sure. In fact, I hear they're going big in 2013, too.

Looks fun. Doesn't seem like you would lose much speed either, ala hammerhead.

Leviathan does something similar.Small details like this are what I'd imagine can make the ride. Reminds me a bit of the section leading up to the cobra roll on Kumba- one of the more memorable moments of the ride.

Yes. I love that part of Kumba. I love unique things like that, and I'm glad to see B&M getting back to that.

The color scheme is different... I like it though.

There is a mention of a Splashdown element. So will this have Diamondback style trains with fins?

I put two and two together, and came up with a possibility.

Wow, the turnaround looks a lot more inverted on these pics than in the POV simulations I've seen.
Wondering if it's the perspective... sure looks very very cool.

I actually put one comment together with another comment somewhere else, and then another comment came out of the blue which form-fits what was created by the combination of the other two, which gets me to a conclusion that I don't want to reveal because it is probably completely wrong. lol

Just where will the next really big B&M coaster be built in 2013 anyways. ;)

^Six Flags Great America. It will also be the first B&M with 2 across seating. Not staggered, but just 2 across. It will have real speed hills and be designed with 'lines and circles' like traditional rides (and Magnum XL-200).

A B&M with two across and not staggered seems very different, I can't even imagine it. Could this happen to be Cedar Points B&M rumored coaster? Hopefully, but if it's not I hope it'll be interesting to see where it goes.

Uhhhmm.... yeah :) It's B&M's attempt to build a coaster that really has a roller coaster 'feel' to it ;)

I am thinking about going to Port Aventura as part of a "coaster" trip to Spain in a few months. Anyone know when this coaster will actually be operating?
