On Busch Garden's Facebook Page they shared this new picture with the caption: "It's Friday, and we at BG feel like having a little fun with our Fans this afternoon. How about a photo shared with us from the team working on our 2011 Attraction?"

What do you guys think? Looks exciting to me :)

^Intamin track! It basically confirms what I've been saying all along! Bring on the Intamin Rocket Coaster!

That's definitely a section of Intamin track. However, I wouldn't bet on a rocket coaster just yet. I have a feeling it's going to be a LIMs launch with trains like Furius Baco. I just don't see Busch Gardens going with the unreliable and high maintenance hydraulic launching system, especially if it only tops out at the reported 60 MPH.

I was at the park today, and the one thing I can say for certain is that there is at least 1 inversion. Based on the footers that have already been poured near the Safari Tour pickup area, there's going to be sone kind of inversion right over that pathway.

If Busch Gardens wanted something reliable, I'm thinking they wouldn't be going with Intamin...

Maverick+Busch Gardens theming+animal exhibit=awesome!

That clip definitely eliminates my thought of Furius Baco trains.

^^Hey, you cheated! ;D

No, its just that most people had to enter a code into a certain site to see it, but it looks like someone clever found a way to post it on Youtube!

Basically, it looks AWESOME!

Based on 10 seconds, that looks like an Intamin blitz coaster. The most well known current example of this type is Maverick at Cedar Point. Judging by all the holes they are reportedly digging, there might be some real theme to this one.
