^If it is in fact a launch. The track build is definitely very similar (if not the same) as Premier's new launch track, but it could be a Premier hyper. (I don't see that happening, but I'm just playing devil's advocate - because I can. :lolr: )

Yeah, assuming that's what it is, of course. Either way, I'm sure it's still going to be awesome.

No not Premier, it's an Intamin, and it looks like this one is the same. So a new Intamin is going to KD.

It's a newly developed track system that Intamin have created to get an even stronger and stiffer track then the quad, to have longer distances between the supports, which means less supports, to make the manufacturing and ride cheaper.
I also have a feeling that this dual spine track is a lot easier to manufacture then quad-rail as well.

So no this is not a new Premier, pure Intamin awesomeness...

That's pretty cool, I didn't know Intamin was developing new track. Completely dis-regard everything I just said then. :lolr:

What I'm curious about then, is what sounds this track will produce. Assuming it's not filled with sand. Some Premiers are somewhat loud, and since this track is similar, could Intamin now have their own distinct "roar?"

If it's an Intamin, I'm already making travel plans. ;)

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

All I'm hoping for is that it's not a launcher & has a lift instead.
