Believed to be named “Tempesto,” the Premier coaster sports an interesting blue and orange color scheme.

The video below shows the construction site along what will likely become the coaster’s launch track:
Based on plans found on the BGWFans website, the coaster appears to be a copy of the Superman: Ultimate Flight coaster at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. That coaster stands 150 feet tall and features a 62-mph launch.
Busch Gardens Williamsburg’s last new coaster, Verbolten, opened in 2012.
