Got a little message in a newsletter today. Busch Gardens will be proposing it's new attraction to Kingsmill residents on Nov 6th at the Mounts Bay rec center 7pm sharp.

Not sure if I'll be able to make it, but I'll make an effort to (and maybe bring some photos home).

BGW has begun teasing the 2014 attraction. Only one in North America? Water ride?

2014 teaser!


*only one like it in North America
*Water

Thoughts: Some sort of water slide... with Verruckt going to schlitterbahn... I don't think its a giant slide. It does have a cone at the end so maybe a combination slide or some sort. What is with the cables pulleys, and motor?

Wishful thoughts... Something like DiVertical would be awesome!
Leviathan - "I am a B&M, I am clearly not the father. I305 is not my child."
Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure"
Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father!
Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"

I've gone pantless!

^Interesting--it's been a few years since Vanish Point, so Water Country is due for a new slide.

I would be so excited if it was one of these... DiVertical

Think about it ... when was the last time BGW added a water ride.... granted they already have Escape from Pompeii. However this is technically a water coaster. The request that they brought to the board mentions 156 ft. in height. It would be nice to see something rise 156 ft. but drive over and down to the Rhine river, skimming the water.

Even though Holiday World has one of these, however their's is not a water coaster like the one at Mirabilandia. So this would technically be the first of its kind in the states.

Another thought if what is it was a water slide in the water park but one that used a elevator style lift system to bring rafts to the top(would that be a first?).

^That would be nice, but I believe this teaser is for the water park. Water Country.
Also, We already have an Intamin water coaster in the states at Holiday World.

^Yeah, it definitely looks like they're planning to build a new water slide, not a new water coaster. But something like Divertical would be nice to have, too.

Giraffica (Pilgrim's Plunge) is not a water coaster in my opinion... there is no coaster portion aside from the flume (drop).

A Divertical-style ride would fit that 155' height the park was seeking approval for in 2015 as well. Just throwing that out there...

Using the new Proslide World Alley concept they could easily build something unique in the states. Just take a few different element and put on it, and there you have it.

We know that the new Hurricane Harbor for Georgia will be getting one with a bowl and a tornado wall, so that's of the table. They could also buld americas first rocket or mammoth water coaster with features.

Or it could be something completely different.
