^The track is not wide at all. This is definately a hyper coaster. It's the only thing. Why would they have this sitting in Ohio if it was going to Florida. This is going to KI, it's a hyper with a water splash down. When you go on Griffon or Sheikra the track is very wide and the track has different ties. This obviously has hyper coaster ties, without a doubt.

The track on Vertical Coaster at Chimelong Paradise has the ties that go in. I don't think we can count out a dive machine now.

This track is in ohio because it was made @ B&M's fabrication plant in ohio which is where I presume it is still sitting. B&M only has 2 fabrication plants: ohio and switzerland. The coasters in the americas are made in ohio and the coasters overseas are made in switzerland.....usually anyway.

Furthermorehere are some B&M hyper comparisons to the red track in ohio and I'm not seeing hyper coaster track at all....but you can all make that decision yourself here you go:

I'm definitly seeing wider track just look at the spine in the compariosn to the hollwood dream.....hollywood dream's spine makes a vertical rectangle......while the red track in ohio makes a horizontal recatangle that is a clear tell tale sign that this track is definitly wider than a hyper coaster!

Its definitely a new sort of coaster. Could B&M possibly be building their first Giga Coaster?
Maybe the extra height calls for some extra support, and the wider track and newly modified trains will help with that.

EDIT: After looking over Vertical Coaster's track ties, I can now not rule out a Dive Machine. Vertical Coaster has the exact same ties as the red track. Look closely. They are identical. And considering B&M had just opened Vertical Coaster, I now believe that this is in fact newly designed Dive Machine track.

Look:

Red track.

Also, check out this POV of the ride. Now that is a close angle of the track spine.


Take into consideration the camera angle. However this is definitely the exact same track type. I believe we have a Dive Machine.

Now that makes me think. Hmmmm I have heard that the new coaster is going to be called Mustang. And why does Screamscape have a layout of the coaster? Is that just a projected layout? So as of right now I am a little undecided! I hate this, I hate how I get over coasters when they are being built!

Well, 1. It is in Ohio because thats where the B&M plant is. 2. Yes, the track is wider than normal B&M Hyper track.

There's always the possibility this new track is for another park. I'm not getting my hopes up until more info becomes available.

Here is what I feel at the moment:

1. This is wide track (whether dive machine or possibly new wide track for new wider hyper trains.....?)
2. Based on the layout KI is definitly getting a B&M hyper
3. KI's splash zone is too small to accomidate this wide track
4. We know Mirabilandia is getting a B&M, but we don't know what yet
5. We know Mirabilandia's coaster height is 164'
6. No dive machine has ever been built with a drop height lower than 179'
7. No new generation dive machine has ever been built with a drop height lower than 195'
8. B&M has never fabricated a coaster for a park overseas in Ohio
9. B&M's switzerland fabrication plant is only 6 hours from Mirabilandia!

This basically puts me back @ a stand still on where this freaking dive machine track is going. I'm certain now that it is not King's Island, there is a possibility that this is going to Mirabilandia but that window of possibility is pretty small. I am simply at a loss here there is no hard rumor anywhere else.....whatever park is getting this coaster kudos to them cause they are doing a hell of a job keeping it under raps! I mean this is the first time I've ever seen in 10 years where we had pictures of track and not had any clue what park it belongs to!!!!!!

Hollywood Rip, Ride Rockit is a Maurer Shone X Car coaster, not a B&M.
