Diamondback is by B&M, and will have the first of it's kind style of seating in the U.S., like Behemoth at Canada's Wonderland. There will be 8 cars of 4 in a car, with 3 trains, with a total of 96 people combined. It's seating is very unique, because each car has 4 across, except the far ends on both the left and right are put about a foot behind the middle two seats.
The investment was $22 million, and will be the most money spent on a thrill ride in the park's 36-year history.
