A recap on the top three possibilities from what we know:

#1 Helix-esque coaster with possibly the most inversions or fastest speed. A first being the steepest vertical drop on a Mack Mega Launch Coaster. Expect incredible G-forces and/or airtime.


#2 As mentioned before a while back, this could still possibly be the first true Mack Dive Coaster using their new Big Dipper cars. While that alone being a first, it may also include the fact that it would be the longest Dive Coaster ever built and the first Dive Coaster with launch elements. (I do not count Lost Gravity as one as it is more of a Eurofighter in terms of its layout.)


#3 The widely rumored Extreme Spinning Coaster. Same layout as the Mega Launch Coaster but with a multi-car coaster train that either has all cars spinning or some spinning. Several launch elements/sections will be included along with possible elements/sections that will do a controlled rotation thru segments of the ride like Cobras Curse. Firsts will of course be the first spinning coaster with a vertical drop and the first with inversions. (If you do not count Blue Fire with the spinning car on the rear)

that would be cool if they did it to where the front car was stationary and the others were spinning. (maybe even a stationary back backwards car too)

Great photos! I embedded them here for those interested. This coaster is really getting insane in a hurry! I am definately getting Helix/Taron vibes from the layout.









Is it just me or does the bottom of the half loop part of the inversion look like it doesn't have enough time to curve up before hitting the ground... Maybe this could mean a tunnel but chances are very low. :-\

Thank you so much!!! It looks like that twisty air time is gonna dive through the first inversion!!! This thing is gonna be insane!!!  ;D ;D ;D

does anyone want to speculate on the coaster? :D (please don't if you have seen the "leak" real or fake I don't want to chance spoiling it)

Sadly i think it was real due to the fact that someone said they couldn't find it anywhere and it looks as though the park is trying to hide it. :'( :'( :'( >:( >:( >:( :-[ :-[ :-[

^But not always. Adding something around the drop would make it more thrilling and leave that door open. I hope that is the plan. Looks pretty barren around the track so far, no signs of any theme elements down there yet. They are promising some kind of "world-footprint" though...
I hope if they do they have a cool effect that makes it look like your actually time traveling or going though a wormhole and so on. ;D

And here is a general idea of where new track has been placed using the overhead view shot that was posted a few weeks ago.
the way you drew it out makes it look like there will be a little speed bump in between the drop and first inversion

I also got to thinking... what if the "holding brake" area is actually to unlock the spinning?

Encountered a truck as I was leaving bringing more track and supports onsite. You can see more of the layout here.
I got much better shots on my DSLR which I will edit and upload later tonight. Along with video.
when will the video be out?

it would be so cool if there was a part in that building where it was like a drop track but it goes up and down with the story line then launches you out into the open. it would go into the hole at the bottom and come out at the top

Could the area highlighted in red be support / mounting area for a dive coaster holding brake?
could be but i kinda hope not... id rather have a traditional mack train than a big dipper type train and i don't think they would use a holding brake for an average train (unless its 3 cars long which could be kinda cool). capacity reasons are why. maybe its just for sensors or a trim. but we shall see. it should be great either way. ;)


What Flys without wings is a spinning disk


With the different sections of track and the show building, they'll be more than one train on the course at once. Thus kinda upping theorical capacity. That looks like a dive coaster feature to me.
Show building? do you know something we don't? ???

It's a 90 degree drop that goes down 70-100 feet and ends below the hill into a dugout canal and back into a half loop. There is a 2nd half loop with a large section of straight track erected crossing by the bottom of the drop. This track leads to the small rectangular building. Inversions and launches are pretty much confirmed now.
did you get any pics of the other track you speak of or just the drop? ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

don't know if this is significant but i zoomed in on the backdrop and found what looks like two numbers right above the G (sorry no pic I couldn't figure out how to post pics)
