While there are still possibilities for a full circuit coaster (Maxx Force has a similar, albeit smaller footprint), BGWfans killed it again with their analysis. Intriguing!

I mean, it's ****ing nuts that they [might] be building something as substantial as this only one year after Pantheon, but... the coaster looks a bit turd, no?

Suppose I shouldn't complain, but swing launch (again?), speed-boosted giga-spike, one corner? Hardly Intamin's most inspiring work.

At least we know for definite that its Intamin aha 😂 I think this is definitely a GP addition with some elements being cool for enthusiasts

I mean anything that fast and tall will be fun. But I just can't get my head around why.

I'm not sure what aspect of the ride will be marketable (record breaking maybe?). It makes less sense with Pantheon there. But yeah I don't wanna shoot this thing down too early as the park hasn't yet tried to sell what is special about the ride, but it's just...odd.

Also this is doing on Drachen Fire's site? If so, that was a massive coaster surely this layout just leaves alot of space..

EDIT: Just remembered they have Tempesto too! This is the third swing launch?

I just don't get why you'd bother when you're going to have a superior productive of essentially the same experience in the park.

Easy marketing when they turn the trains around in a couple of years I guess.

This looks like Speed - The Ride at Nascar Café but on a bigger scale.

In my opinion, I think Busch might have got a deal for both Pantheon and this. Otherwise, I don't understand why they would put such big coasters in subsequent years when, to the GPs eyes, they will be essentially two "big, fast coasters that go backwards and forwards". Interesting use of switch tracks to allow for multiple train operation.

Seriously, this layout is very uninspiring, even more so than Orion's and that's a lot to say.

I actually this could end up pretty cool, likely better than Red Force IMO, even though that would probably be a better fit for the park.

Also this will likely take Patheon's debatable record for the world's fastest multi-launch coaster, but this time for definite.
