At a height of 135', and a drop of 90°, Tower of Terror reaches a speed of 56 mph.

 

32175632505_acc1aefbdb_c.jpg

Rip Tide, another classic amusement ride. Some argue that Rip Tide and Tower of Terror are complete rip-offs from AstroWorld. Let me assure you; they are not.

Lake Monster. The king of Granby Lake. The station is situated high above the midway below.

A quick dip out the station onto the lift hill.

Twenty riders plunge down the first hill.

31365172983_313f6ae8f3_c.jpg

Lake Monster's signature move, the twin corkscrews above the midway below.

After being turned upside down 4 times on Lake Monster many guests find a quick bite at Lakeside Refreshments to be...refreshing.

This is absolutely marvelous! I immediately got a Valley Hills vibe from the very beginning of the update, I bet this is going to be even better! I'm somewhat hoping this morphs into a Cedar Fair park, as I've been waiting for someone to do a Cedar Fair in Texas for a while. Keep up the good work!

Thank you.

 

I'm guessing some Astroworld rides will show up at this park by 2006.

 

In other words, this is a great park! I'm really looking to more!

We will just have to wait and see.

 

Looks absolutely wonderful, I can't wait to see this park's progress. But does this mean you quit working on Valley Hills?

Working on both parks.

 

thanks i guess it would be nice if this was real in houston tx! i would so go to it! i feel like houston is nothing these days especially to me!

The area is lacking in theme parks. I think it will be fun developing a park with close competition.
