Yeah, I doubt it myself. We know they are going to start at the station area and that track is just sitting there. Now we have the drop backbone piece sitting there as well. Doesn't make a whole lot of sense to have completed track for other sections. They have some Chinese coasters opening next year as well, so I don't think we can call this one until we see the ID markings.

No, SeaWorld San Diego. Orlando already has a Mako.

Sea World orlando is getting a new coaster next year too, but I've not heard anyone tying B&M to it.

So Blue with white supports?  Would any other color for supports go with it?  

Orange :)  but if I'm being real silver or black would work well.

You joke, but blue track and orange supports doesn't look half bad!

I'd also like to bring up that I think San Diego has imposed a height restriction on Sea World, so they can't build very high.  If they're getting a small dive coaster, CSF should knock that out quick.

Though, I also think B&M has a steel plant they use out west.  I don't think CSF manufactured track for Tatsu or Silver Bullet.

It’s a launch coaster, all the rumors point at premier.

There is no other plant for the track, all B&M coasters are produced at CSF.  It makes no difference where in the world the ride will be located.

I mean the only correct answer to this is no we can't be.

Well, they are paying an unknown, but large amount of money just to let a lot of people down, so... UK it is!

I suppose it *could* be for Sea World San Diego's Mako dive coaster, but I doubt it. It was shown as having more of an aqua or seafoam green track color.  There's also the possibility of an international project, but I don't think any track has been recently identified for such a project. Construction is in full swing on Project X and Hershey's hyper has been underway a while, so I would wager that this is KI track.

Edit: I missed like a full page because the browser didn't refresh, excuse me being late to the party. I hope supports aren't orange, lol.

According to the blueprints, L16 is the base of the spine on the drop-side.

So did a quick check on RCDB the only other coasters B&M are making for 2020 are Mako, the SWSD dive, which looks to be much lighter almost Leviathanish colors. Hersheyparks hyper, and a Wing coaster for China. Can we confirm its the KI giga back there? No not yet, but its pretty likely. Personally I like the color and think its going to be awesome to see this tower over Racer and Coney Mall if this is it and can't wait to hear the name and theme around what will most likely become my new favorite ride.
