I like the fact that it does into the drop right off the lift with no dip before the drop. Also the zero g roll into a loop is something new for a sit down B&M I believe? Being over the water is pretty cool also.

I agree, being over water is a big plus. I could probably do without the cobra though. I would've rather seen a dive loop or something, but I'm not gonna complain. Also, the color is perfect!

The only question I have left is will Paige, Plant, and Jones be riding on Media Day? One can only imagine the lineup of rock stars that could be present. :Pr

Also, has anyone given thought to the possibility that this "Maximum RPM" coaster could be a Rita-esque, low-to-ground rocket coaster? With the "convertible car" hint thrown in there, I can't help but to think of a coaster similar to the Desert Race or Rita

How many coasters are they getting, 2 or 3?

Thank you for the photos! In France (I'm a member of another forum in France called Coasters World) we were very interested by this project!
We imagined some coasters with some rock musics... it was funny! And I think they will be interested by the news you've found so I tell you again thank you!

From the birds-eye-view artist rendering of the park, there will be five.

We have four names of the five.

Midnight Rider; Shake Rattle 'n' Rollercoaster; Maximum RPM!, and Led Zeppelin - The Ride.

Could still be launched, could be a launched Vekoma like Rock 'n' Roller Coaster!

"Midnight Rider" and "Maximum RPM" are both going to be Premier Coasters.



The other 2 coasters will be by Vekoma.

I say that "Shake Rattle 'n' Rollercoaster" will probally be Vekoma Junior Coaster.

With Robert Plant being a local boy, this has made my local newspaper. The layout of the B&M looks pretty cool, and using a replica Zeppelin as the station is very original. The whole project get's the thumbs up from me.... :)

I wonder would the second Premier coaster "Midnight Rider" be one of their Liquid coasters because it is themed around a lumber mill which are located by a river and they are getting 2 Premier coasters and one of them is most likely going to be a launched coaster.
