Well, with the announcement, I can say that I'm glad the northeast is getting a dive machine, the floorless aspect will be a bit different (especially with the watersplash, I think the backrow may get a bit wetter). Should be another good ride for the park, but I'm kinda disappointed in Busch for going with a design so similar to what they've already got.

Very similar. Still, hard to get a good idea of the complete layout until a video is shown.

 

And yeah... no tunnels for the drops? I say SheiKra hasn't quite been dethroned.

Im quite diappointed that it is preety much the same as SheiKria, but it looks awesome. The Floorless trains are definatley going to add to the awesomness factor.

The way you sit in SheiKra it doesn't feel like a floor on it at all. This doesn't feel the same, but aren't there any stats being released on this coaster?

 

Height? Length? Elements (besides the immelman)?

Looks great to me! Who cares if it's a clone, or semi-clone? If a design's good, then why whine about duplicating it with a slight enhancement like floorless cars? Heck, I don't hear anyone ever whining about the Batman clones. They're still considered the "golden age" beemers, right? Back when they were forcefull, blah blah blah.

 

Congrats to Busch for another superb coaster to compliment an already great park!

 

Btw, great logo as well.
