Also sending me a PM asking where it is ... come on guys (and gals). We all agreed to not spoil it for everyone else.  You have less than a week before Christmas.  You can last (or you search for yourself)

How about we all just wait for the announcement and let SDC be the ones to present their new creation to us as they wanted it to be presented. Good things come to those who wait!

You have to admit - you asked for that.

Yeah I know.  "No good deed goes unpunished"

I've scoured the internet looking for said leaked layout and it's nowhere to be found. And stuff like that spreads quickly so I'm having my doubts.

Let's not encourage anything to be spread further just in case it is a real leak. I am hoping/suspecting it is fake or just fan artwork. We are so close in any case.

I'm much more worried about a news site publishing early in the morning. SDC will undoubtedly send the info out to dozens of organizations near and far, and a lot of places will write their stories the day before and load it up to auto-publish the day of the announcement. Sometimes it gets inserted into the morning news on accident - exactly what happened last week with the SFFT Wonder Woman announcement at 5am.

Probably all the same difference as long as we make it to Wednesday though.

Well as soon as they tell the citizens that morning it will be out.  The park knows the citizens won't keep quiet about an attraction this big.

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. :'( :'( :'( >:( >:( >:( :-[ :-[ :-[

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)

I haven't see the logo or layout, but wouldn't we think the logo would have something to do with gears and clockworks?

Yeah I checked everywhere I couldn't find anything. Any clues?

You're seriously worried about KY3 getting a scoop on the morning of the announcement? lol Trust me, the good folks at SDC are much more concerned about Swoosh baiting people on spoilers than they are about legitimate reporting by local news outlets. I can promise you that.

Actually they're not worried about me at all - as they know I won't be posting any of the leaked images.  I have a good thing going with the park and I'm not ruining it just so I can claim "first"

It seems there was a lot more excitement over OR than this coaster is generating, even this early on.  There were usually many posts a day speculating, I don't see the activity on the board this time. 
I wonder why?

Meh, I'm just as excited as I was for OR, but there's not much left to speculate that we haven't already gone over for the past year at least. These two year construction cycles are tough to to stay excited through. Even though I don't know exactly what this ride will be, I know enough about what has been constructed so far and what the possibilities are that I'm just ready for the announcement to finally get here.

Plus in general, I think it's just getting continuously harder to surprise enthusiasts. OR was surprisingly revolutionary - it was officially the first "true" inverting wood coaster, right? (if you discount SOB's steel loop). I remember how it came completely out of left field. We seriously thought it was just going to be a neat wooden coaster and then suddenly a huge near-vertical drop goes up, followed by a ridiculous twisted upside down element, etc, etc. It was just simply unprecedented.

This ride looks very very cool, but until we know about whether or not it spins or whatever, there's nothing unprecedented yet. Vertical drops are now practically the norm (especially on these compact German coasters), and mid-course launches have been done on probably dozens of coasters now. The ride isn't even that big scale-wise, although the valley certainly distorts it's true size a lot.

With the RMC craze still going on and the huge announcements taking place at CP and KD on the same day, I can see how this ride is kind of getting buried. Enthusiasts are excited, but they are more excited about CP since that is obviously a lot bigger and more accessible. SDC is still kind of out in the woods for most enthusiasts scattered across the country. I think they really screwed up having the announcement on the same day, even if it is "national roller coaster day"
