Looks like Tempesto at Busch Gardens Williamsburg was announced today on the SeaWorld earnings call. Here's from the transcript of the call. There was a typo in the transcript, but the audio says "Tempesto"

Maybe "Tom Pesto" will be the ride's mascot. ;)

To be fair, the transcript was done by some other company and it wasn't SeaWorld's official transcript: http://seekingalpha.com/article/2954286-seaworld-entertainments-seas-ceo-jim-atchison-on-q4-2014-results-earnings-call-transcript

No official announcement or release package until late February, and a typo-ridden third party announcement about a month before pass holder day. I still can't get over what's going on with their marketing over there :/

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

I've been to BGT countless times, however, never been to BGW. Super excited to get out there this summer and see what I've been missing all these years!

I really wanna take advantage of pass holders day but I wish they would say if the new coaster would be available or not!:x

^My best guess is "not." BGW likes to debut new rides over Memorial Day Weekend.

I really do not understand BGW's Angle with this ride. Are they going to make this a surprise announcement on opening date? Or are they not doing any marketing whatsoever? (perhaps because of the ride's low capacity)
I guess we will have to see and wait. All about this ride seems really odd.
