I'm sure this is a B&M Dive Machine!

 

Look at the picture, in the front of the photo you can see a support that is thicker than the one holding (what i think) a firstdrop in the background! The thick support in the front is holding the highest elevated track on the coaster, which would be a block brake like on Krake before the left turn and then the first drop.

Also look at how the support holding the track in the background, it's leaning forward like on Krake, which is the most recent Dive Machine of B&M!

That screams Dive Machine to me! I mean, look at Krake at Heide Park in Germany. With the right angle, this photo could be a edited photo taken from Krake.

 

Look at this Picture.

Look at this picture and see if you can see what i mean.

Yeah, the difference to the rider between I-Box track and the current track is really minimal. The only major difference would be that the ride would actually be open when you wanted to ride it and wh

You mean like this. . . (pssst, all wooden coasters run on steel rails, well, with the exception of the flying turns)   Also, who would have thought the first RMC coaster to get the RM

Shenanigans! Dollywood is a theme park. Do you realize how many people go to Dollywood for the shows? Or the Eagle habitat? Or the soot train? Or just to take it all in? Or the freaking cinnamon

DMs don't have curved drops.

???? Dude, even if i said that? Look at the picture, does it seem more curved than the pic i posted of Krake?

Yes, yes it does. The pic of the puzzle is definitely curved. Besides...DM turn around 90 or 180 before they drop, the supports leading up to the track are just going straight. The track turns to abruptly to have any curve in it, and it's too close to the supports to have been turned around already.

We obviously don't look at this picture the same. We'll se who's right on September 4!

I think the majority of the people on this site are not seeing the picture as you are...

 

Of course not...

 

Nevermind the fact that the track on site isn't dive machine track.

 

THAT, is the best argue against my theory so far.. It makes me think that i might be wrong, but i'm gonna stay on this theory till we see what the coaster is going to be.

I'm gonna call it.......Terrain Wingrider

 

Remember this post people

^A lot of people thought that about Leviathan, too. It's not going to be breaking any records if it's a mini-dive machine. I would be SHOCKED if this wasn't a wing-rider, and moderately surprised if the record it broke isn't the largest loop.

 

yeah I was on the dive machine for CW bandwagon, but my theories were just a wild guess and hopeful thinking with no real evidence. But I still think that we will see a much larger scale mini dive machine sometime in the future from B&M, may not be at Dollywood but somewhere.

 

With the wing riders train design, I wonder if that ride system is capable of breaking the worlds tallest inversion record? Both wing riders so far is are relatively small in height (108 feet and 120 feet I think). For the worlds largest loop it would have to be at least 160+ feet tall probably maybe more. I wonder if the design of the wing rider trains can handle the stresses associated with the height and speed required to pull off the largest loop? they probably can, but who knows.

Forgot it already. And hasn't everyone posted terrain wingrider?

 

The wink should have shown I was baiting someone, not being deadly serious

 

Although a B&M Wingrider is my guess, no-one really knows until it has been released.

It's probably going to be built on a hill, which means it can descend more than it ascends. :S

 

Floorless coaster :S Gonna be that kid.

Okay, I know I read somewhere that supposedly someone talked to a worker on the project at DW and they said it was going to be like the "new coaster that just opened in Italy"...but to me looking at that track, it looks like the rails are towards the bottom of the track structure, it's blurry and I could be seeing things. If indeed that were to be the case, with the rails on the bottom of the track, could we be looking at the worlds largest inverted roller coaster instead of a wing rider? I'm only going by what I think I see. Take a look again and let me know if I am seeing things, like I said it is blurry.

What's your point? It will still need a lot of speed to get through the worlds largest loop regardless of the height of the lift or length of the drop or whatever, I'm just curious if the B&M wing rider trains can handle those kinds of speeds and subsequent stresses. Probably can, but we'll see.

Doesn't really need that much more speed than the current record-holder.
