Hey Ty-rant_13, I am glad to see some activity on the forums once again!Ty-rant_13 wrote:Yay B&M!
Certainly exciting that they already have track on site, but it's possible they only have enough for the tunnel since they would need to install those track sections before enclosing the tunnel and refilling Lake LeBarge (i.e., before the park opens this season). Then they can worry about assembling the rest of the layout later. Also, if this track is only used for the tunnel, it may not accurately reflect the colour of the rest of the coaster (a stretch, I know, but I'm really hoping that's not the final colour) since you probably won't be able to see it while you're down there anyway. Alternatively, maybe the station could be themed to the nest of the Ziz creature people think this coaster will be themed/named after and this colour is just for the station track to blend in with that theme?
I find it hilarious that this somehow confirms it's a dive coaster. Wing coasters also have quite large track gauge, as do the modern invert designs (due to the wider restraints/seats). This may also be the rumoured 4-D wing coaster design people thought B&M might have been working on developing, or some other new coaster model altogether. The track spine width on any coaster also varies according to where on the layout it is, with the lift and drop of Leviathan having a much larger spine than the rest of the layout, and the station/brake run on many coasters having larger spines than the rest of the coaster. If this track is for the station, lift, tunnel, or brake run (all of which are likely to be constructed first), I don't see this proving anything at all.
Let the speculation continue to run wild!
As for the new roller coaster, I agree with you that we may see many track colours along the course of the ride due to elements such as tunnels, and other possible sections of the track we may not really see. I also think different colours of track could be used to blend in the with land that the roller coaster will pass over, which has also been seen at other amusement parks in the past. As for the model of the next roller coaster, I came to a conclusion a while ago based on the location and size of the construction area that it could very well be a dive coaster. But, it could be a newly designed drop coaster by B&M featuring a different seating arrangement to provide added excitement for visitors who choose to ride. It definitely is interesting and I am sure more will be discovered to confirm what model of roller coaster by B&M will be coming to Canada's Wonderland for 2019. We have a ton of interesting information thus far, so it will be interesting to continue to follow the progress in the future, especially once the park opens for the 2018 season!
