If you look in this picture, doesn't the middle track look wider than the other ones?

Most people have been thinking that this ride will be called Mustang or with the new teasers some kind of reptilian name. I was leaning towards Mustang at first, but now I'm starting to think that this is a new addition to the "Beast" family.

I think it might have a reptile theme to it, mainly because of the eye in the box looks reptile like.

Well, reptile it is! :lol: It has a cool layout and the train designs are very nice as well. I think it could give Nitro a run for it's money as the best B&M hyper.


P.S. Nitro still wins :lol:

NITRO has the nicer legs and it's still longer than Diamondback. Diamondback looks like it has a mix of Apollo's Chariot and Behemoth in it but my NITRO is still number one in my books.

Overall Diamondback looks pretty tight. It's interesting to see how much the Hyper has evolved since the early ones like Nitro. Love the new train design.

I think judgements should be made after it is ridden! I will be riding it in early June when im in Ohio for coaster mania at CP :bananarock:

The name is pretty cool and the logos are ok. I can't judge the ride yet for obvious reasons.

I think Diamondback looks awesome. I personally don't think it will beat Nitro but it will be up there. The ride looks like it will be packed with airtime and not to mention a Nitro drop but 8 degrees steeper. Now that sounds amazing!
