The video on Instagram uses the phrases "Plunging Thrills" and "Predatory Heights" and also shows a bird diving down a cliff. SheiKra part II?

^^ I find it would be a bit odd for this to be a dive coaster like Shiekra when Sheikra is just down the road. Unless it would be something way different. Who knows.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Considering that SeaWorld San Diego is getting a B&M Dive in 2020, I would be very surprised if SeaWorld Orlando did too. Although I suppose some type of package deal is possible?

The video definitely suggests height/big drop, and that doesn't align much with the family launched coaster concept we've heard about recently. I'm definitely going to follow this!

I'm seeing a lot of people saying it's a dive coaster, and some doubt it because of SheiKra at Busch... but remember, B&M doesn't have a monopoly on that kind of coaster anymore... maybe a ride similar to HangTime at Knott's?

I won't link to the page/site but Google will show you site plans leaked for this a whole ago. Have you all forgotten that? It's definitely not a B&M dive. Try to keep up yall...

(Its a Premier launcher ala YOLO on the lake near Wild Arctic/Shamu Stadium)

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

So the "dive" portion could really just be the vertical drop of a top hat straight into iceberg theming or something.

I'm not sure how it even alludes to a dive necessarily. "Plunging thrills". Pretty much all coasters have a plunge and thrills.

Also, I'm not saying its necessarily Premier either, but the site I am referring to seems to have come to that conclusion. I do recall this supposedly being an Intamin when it was first rumored, so if we're theorizing its going to be a B&M dive because of the San Diego Mako, why couldn't this be Premier and/or Intamin? They're working with Intamin at BGW and they've worked with Premier a whole bunch the last few years. I feel like a B&M dive is a bit too lazy/on the nose.

The layout I saw seemed like it transfer tracked into a launch that went half way up then backwards launched up a spike then completed the layout. That could be the plunge the reference?
