Was that part of the original entrance?

Yes. It can vaguely be seen in these images from 1997:

Yellow is Zulu, blue is where Zinger was, orange rectangle with arrow is the entrance.

Compared to today (Zulu at the very top of the image):

Boomerang can be seen in the background in the last image.

^^ Yeah, I expected Timberwolf to be awful but it was running really well. We instinctively rode in the front and leaned forward because it’s a Dinn and it always worked for Mean Streak but I have no clue if it was even necessary. 
 

The ride wasn’t amazing or anything but I 100% enjoyed myself and I didn’t expect to.

Timber Wolf is nothing special overall, but it is at least enjoyable now and has a good amount of airtime. There was even more fresh track on it this year than last, got to give credit where credit is due. They are doing a heck of a job maintaining TW.

Hey guys...good to see you here. I am back after a hiatus as well. Just trying to reassemble my life is all. lol

Excited to hear about the new coaster - looks like it should be a lot of fun!

Hey man! Yeah, I hear you. These last couple years have been rough on everybody. We need to catch up. 😊

Last issue of Amusement Today has an article about the new Zambezi Zinger and other information about 2023 at Worlds of Fun.

Enhanced theming throughout the park, renaming of Orient to East Asia, Africa being split into three sections, new bird show, history display in Tivoli Theater lobby, 50 Days of Celebration for the 50th Anniversary including the 50 Nights of Fire show and more.

I read that article and it sounds great! Between Zambezi Zinger and the renewed focus on the lands and their identities, Worlds of Fun is high on my list of parks I want to get to next year.

Focus on theming sounds fantastic. I always loved the Jules Verne original theme idea of including the cultures of the world in one park under a name that suited the theme. Worlds of Fun literally meant fun from all parts of the world. My first experience at the park was notably different from the Midwest/Colonial theming at SFStL. While I have made my opinion on Prowler Junior clear, I am happy to hear about the other improvements that will certainly add charm and culture to Worlds of Fun.
