I'm not sure I fully trust that, as the trademark filed is for 'Time Traveler' as opposed to 'Time Machine'!

I wouldn't be surprised if it is a Big Dipper though if I'm honest...

Yeh not entirely sure about it myself, although the look of it does match all the teasers, the fonts are all the same. It also all fits 'Time Traveler' and that was trademarked but they could have changed their minds on the final name. Apparently this logo leaked along with the full layout of the ride although all i've been able to find so far is the logo. We'll know in a couple of days anyway.

That's what I was thinking, although I'm not sure. To me it's 50/50 - I will be watching for the announcement!

Based on this image it seems it is a spinning coaster!

In all honesty I'm not sure that I would personally be a fan of this. I like Spinball but inversions added would be too much for me. Looks like a unique investment though. They might do different trains styles like in previous Mack concept videos.

It's been announced. 'Time Traveler' will have 3 inversions, 2 launches and a vertical drop, as well as spinning trains!!!! It will be a crazy, insane attraction!

That is the sexiest coaster car I think I've ever seen.
Ride count 2017: 422!
Ride count since the beginning of 2015: 933!

It does look like a cool coaster, although, I do fear I'd be sick, depending on how much it spins in real life. The CGI uploaded last year gives away nothing :lol

It looks like it’ll be fun, but I feel they chose spinning cars as a gimmick. This layout could be much more suited to a standard launch coaster train.
