It's old timey aviator goggles on an old timey leather helmet

I go to furry parties, I'm probably a brony too...

I think Diavolo is a more likely candidate now that I see that concept art.
I'm done.

Seems to tie in to a earlier discussion of the theme revolving around an Italian dardevil.

^I wouldn't be the first time a Busch park has used different names for a new attraction to throw people off. Remember the "Cheetaka v. Cheetah Hunt" stuff at Tampa? Some of the ride's concept art even said "Cheetaka."

That being said, I think "Tempesto" is the likely choice.

Stopped by the park a few weeks ago to see the new banners they stuck on the tower. Other than a crane perpetually hovering over the ride, not much visible work has been done since the banners went up.

The train and restraints dont look like anything else premier has made and look kind of uncomfortable too. :?r
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

Because concept art for new rides is always 100% accurate amirite?

^Yeah, I'll wait until I see an actual train. Graphic artists often take a few liberties.

Oh no, they do not dare... Do they?

Very accurate... Intamin harnesses (Raptor, Gardaland).

Weird rails and weird train for a Mack coaster (Manta, Sea World San Diego).

And the list goes on. Though as similar models has been build, they could have used those for reference...
