Where exactly does it say it's going to be an B&M? Could it just be another Intamin with misleading concept art?

The photo clearly shows B&M track.

What's your point? The photo also "clearly" shows Intamin seats.

I would think it's more likely that B&M would come up with a newly designed restraint that was similar to Intamin rather than Intamin coming up with a newly designed track that was similar to B&M. IMO, a new restraint is a much smaller jump in design change than track style.

< sigh >

Artist's renderings quite often have features that don't resemble actual ride once constucted. I have a copy of the rendering for SFMM's Viper that shows a high flat U-turn after the lift followed by a straight 188' drop. Obviously the ride has a curving first drop. So what did the artist do? He used other similar rides as inspiration.

As this is the first of it's kind for B&M there are no examples in the real world, so the artist who did the rendering used Furious Baco as a guide, hence some of the features resemble that ride.

But let's make it perfectly clear: it's B&M.

And in case you didn't read that last sentence: it's B&M.

Oh, and did I mention it's B&M?

EDIT - Oh. My. God! If this artist's rendering is accurate the last few rows won't have seats! That'll look odd....

That's fine Moosh, but my whole point was that I didn't trust the rendering to determine anything about who was making the ride. That's great that you have inside info but the rest of us have to step back and ask reasonable questions about what is considered fact.

Enough. It's not B&M.

Togo Int'l and Dinn Corporation are the brains behind this new ride.

No photos but there is a link to the artist's rendering in the first post, kRaX. You'll have to answer a survey that's written in Italian...just choose "si" to be taken to the artist's rendering.

The track on i305 doesn't look like Intamin. So why is it so hard to believe this could be something other than B&M?

Just being devilish for funsies.

The track on I305 is identical to the track on Formula Rossa @ the Ferrari Park, another Intamin project.

Ooh, I like this game. :) The track on the Intamin stand ups, FlashBack, and Eurostar, is identical to B&M's box style track.

Flashback is a Giovanola ride...and both Titan and Goliath have the same box-beam track :)

Intamin's name is still associated with it. :)

Just sayin'.

Not that I don't believe this is a B&M.

This is proof that B&M and Intamin are merging!

On the one hand, Intamin could possibly help them make more trim free hypers. On the other hand, B&M could help them not kill random people.
