Some closeups of the gorgeous, highly themed new SDC Time Traveler trains. Love the Steam Punk vibe.

Its cool they are bringing the Steeple Chase style back, but it makes me wonder - Did anyone ask for this? I do enjoy the type of ride, but I also wonder if anyone will buy it. Or, maybe there something special about this version that the older style doesn't have? (Other then a Dinosaur theme, haha)

You'd be surprised how many comments you hear from people wanting Soap Box Racers back at Knott's alone.

I'm thinking the 42" minimum is a selling point in today's industry when 48" seems to be standard for "family" rides.

Yes, I know of those comments. But that is a very small group, and its for one park.

 

Don't get me wrong, I think it's fun to see it come back into the industry. We'll just have to wait and see who, if any one, buys the ride.
