Well, it has a coaster lift hill outside of the mountain.

Then it coasts in some kind of coaster-like fashion, into the mountain and....?

 

Whatever. Quit complaning about it. It'll be great and unique for the park.

Well, ANYTHING they can do for the Boo HIll's capacity is a big win. Hopefully there's some more cars in addition to higher capacity is great. Maybe not making up for Behemoth seat belts, but it is something.

 

Also, WMG looks like it will definitely "count". There's some substantive coaster sections there.

Ya, so happy this is gonna count as a credit... Was a little worried WMGwould turn out to be a bigger boo hill

 

I'm more interested in whether the ride is fun, not so much in its classification.

While I'm guessing this may be a Cedar Fair-specific thing...there is also Shambhala at PortAventura with the split-rowed trains. Guess we'll know for certain if that ends up getting seatbelts.

Quick WMG update. It's season pass preview night and just wanted to send a couple pics showing more rock work done over the entrance as well as that "suspicious" track work is now fixed and bolted into place.

that logo ride entrance sign looks awesome! and glad they bolted that track into place! Got me nervous with it just sitting there in place without being bolted! I knew they would fix it before it opened, but what if it rained heavily or something and it slid out of place! I'm not saying it could've been possible, but it sure would've been bad!

Supports in the parking lot for what I'm guessing is the triple drop waterside everyone is talking about and that the radio as mentions.

 

The structure is for a cell tower.

 

Here's the permit I found a while back which was filed in 2012 for the tower.

The description and diagrams perfectly match what we have seen.

 

Also the ad on the radios makes NO MENTION of a "NEW" waterslide...just a triple drop (probably referring to the Plunge).

Just to clarify, I never said "new".

 

I'll say this, that's one funky looking cell tower lol

Think I'm going to go with PCW_nut on this one. Just don't see those supports being for a cell tower. Time will tell.

 

I think the cell tower situation is right. Maybe they went with the colourful design to blend in with the park a little so it doesn't look too awful. I'm guessing that since they had police next to the structure rather than park security It makes sence it's not for a ride or attraction.

From the permit: "...for the installation of a 60 m high “shrouded” tripole telecommunication tower..."

 

"Shrouded" means to cover something to conceal it from view. The tower is painted Behemoth's colours so as to "hide it" because its going up just in front of the helix.

 

The diagram also shows 4 sections of supports....which is exactly what we saw in the original pictures posted (pieces were numbered 1 to 4).

 

This is 100% not for an attraction.

I was referring to Haunt Maniacs post:

 

For sure it said a NEW triple drop waterslide at Splashworks.

Ciao!

 

I saw a few posts back that thunderrun is still there.

 

How can that be? The images showing the inside of the mountain clearly show its been gutted out.

 

 

Can someone clarify that part?

 

Sorry for the double post.

 

Inside the mountain are several levels. Thunder Run is on the upper level. WMG takes maybe 1 or 2 levels below and the Haunt Mazes last year were in the lowest underground level.

 

Here is a shot taken during construction. You can make out the multiple levels for a reference.

You should also note that Thunder Run uses a very, very small portion of the mountain. WMG is located in other areas.

The picture on the last page of the permit shows a tower with the top part "coverd". Maybe shrouded means something in the line of Wonderland adds or Wonderland logos on the top part of the tower.
