What coaster is this?

I was recently sent a youtube video link of a coaster ride that I don't recognize. The video in question is not exactly family friendly so I won't post the link, but if you search for "Roller Coaster Shake Out" I am sure you will find it.

After you are done laughing, take a look at the ride. What & where is it?

A coaster friend of mine that generally knows all things coasters felt it was a recent Intamin, but he did not recognize it either.

Looks like Furius Baco at PortAventura in Spain. If you look at this (non-boobalicious) video, it's the same ride:

Yup, that is Furius Baco. A very fun ride might I add, but really jerky depending on which side you sit. On a different note, the same thing happened to my friend on Millennium Force. Intamin rides just loves seeing people go topless. :-)

Funny, that happened when I ran the Skyhawk at Great America. But I also saw that on the Demon, so perhaps it's just the fact that it is a shoulder (but not boulder) restaint. ;)

Only on this site would people watch that video and pay more attention to the coaster. :)

Haha, RGB; for more than one reason too. ;)

Furious Baco can be totally awesome or Furious to your Baco. Front inside seat is a great ride. But the outside seats have a higher degree of vibration. And the farther back in the train you go, the worse it gets. Plus if you sit on the far right seat and ride hands up, you can hit some bushes during the inversion at about 65 mph. I did. And, holy crap it hurt. At first I thought I broke my hand.
