Once it hits RCDB, it is pretty much confirmed! So yay, to the B&M Floorless with 5 inversions! It is to be called Nitro!

Those stats so far just scream Batman the Dark knight at SFNE to me.

Obviously I don't know anything about the actual layout of this ride, but Nitro is going to be taller and faster than Batman. I'm glad to see more floorless roller coasters being built - maybe someday a UK park will build one...

I know the park is opening tomorrow, but have we heard about the two big coasters? Last I heard, they were NOT opening with the park.

 

Went through their Twitter feed and didn't see anything. Yeah i don't think coasters are opening..

I was doing a bit of looking around about Adlabs Imagica as the park has interested me, and from a news article I found it appears Nitro isn't opening until May. Also, a video posted to the park's YouTube page giving a overview of attractions shows a rendering of Nitro, and as others have suspected it is similar to the Batman:Dark Knight at Six Flags New England, however it appears to be a mirror image and has an added helix at the end.

(PS. Apologies if the links aren't allowed - my understanding of the TOR is that the 50 post requirement was only for linking to personal content, and the content I'm linking does sort of back up my post, so again apologies if I've misinterpreted it)

Nitro is still under construction and Deep Space is nearing completion...For those interested, here's two photos I took in the park last Friday showing off the B&M.

Construction of Nitro looks to be progressing well. In a news report posted to YouTube it shows Nitro along with other clips of the park. Here's the best view I could find from the clip:

 

 

Of note is the drop style which has not been seen on a B&M yet.

Neither is it here. Anyway, I've managed to see some pictures of the construction and the drop looks kid of odd for a B&M. Is this what their swooping drops will look now without the pre-drop? I thought they would do something a bit more like GASM, viper or shockwave' s drops where the track banks forward slightly and then it turns achieving the maximum vertical angle during the turn. This looks more like it gets to the maximum angle and then it turns. Well, we'll see what it is like.
