These tiers are designed to give people false hope but these metrics aren't realistic anywhere but the most rural areas. It just sounds better to give people false hope than to say "Theme parks aren't

I think that picture looks like a Gerstlauer spinner. But I'm not going to dwell on it since we'll know in 2 and a half hours. I have faith in SCBB, they do a good job with bringing in rides that work for their park.

 

Watch it be a clone of Big Spin.

I really hope someone posts the outcome here by 10am.

 

My final guess is what I've been guessing. Spinning Wild Mouse.

 

It's not really what I'd want, but I know what direction the Boardwalk is going in now *coughfamilyorientatedcough*, and I'd be surprised if it is something really extreme. If it is a Eurofighter, or something else, I'd be blown away. But my guess is still Spinning Wild Mouse.

NEW Boardwalk Thrill Ride!

 

Buckle up for some unexpected thrills on the only spinning coaster in Northern California! Undertow's crazy turns and sudden drops will push you to the edge… and back!

 

Catch your breath and try it again because Undertow’s unique design ensures that no two rides are ever the same. Start facing forward or start facing backward, depending on the weight and position of riders, your speed and rotation change every time!

 

Ride Description

 

The fun begins with the first drop as riders scream downhill in a disorienting sideways position at speeds of up to 40 mph.

 

In the Immelmann Turn, the track takes a sharp 80° bank as you find yourself staring straight up at the sky or straight down at the ground depending on your position in the car at any given moment.

 

A 360° carousel spin, a slalom section, and plenty of sharp curves will keep you wondering which way is up!

 

Technical Data:

- Track length: 1410 ft.

- Height: 50 ft.

- Cars: 4-seater, spinning

- Number of cars: 7

- Capacity: 900 pph

- Base area: 147 x 75 ft.

FINALLY someone built a coaster themed to a TOOL record, bout dang time!

 

That logo is obviously just an artists rendering, ^this will be the actual logo on opening day. But seriously, looks like a great addition to the Boardwalk. I wonder if it will be a standard or custom layout.
