Was it at the event at epic waters or a different one? Also were you there?

Can I park my donkey here?

It was at the epic waters event. I was not there, however I did see the stream of the announcements, not just for SFOT but all of the area parks.

Is there any way to watch the announcements now?

We stopped by SFOT for awhile today. I won't bore anyone with a trip full trip report, but a few observations.

NTAG and Titan both down to one train operations. Signs up at each saying that this is due to scheduled maintenance. Good look to anyone going during the rest of spring break, especially once it warms up.

Riddler is open and running, although there is some talk about it not running as well as it has in the past. A few folks are saying that it is not reaching quite a high on the swings as before. I rode it and I really didn't notice a difference myself but I have only been on it a handful of time, so I am no Riddler expert.

Oil Derrick is open - sort of - Apparently it opened on Saturday and this was confirmed by multiple people. Today it was closed due to inclement weather (according to the sign). The inclement weather was a about 4 drops of rain and I am barely exaggerating. So who knows what is really going on.

The Spain area was closed during opening weekend due to the EL Diablo construction. It is now reopen and just the construction area is fenced off.

Chop Six still has a ways to go. Signage is up but the interior is just a shell. I added a few phots of the construction.

Nothing new at Yosemite Sam's that I saw.

We had a good time overall. It wasn't too busy due to the cool weather. The food lines were non existent and the longest wait for anything was Riddler at about 30 minutes, which included a breakdown while waiting.

where in the Spain section is El Diablo going? I'm not familiar enough with the layout in that portion of the park to be able to tell from the pics. (ie: did they tear something out to make space for it)?


I'm honestly surprised, as i fully expected the new ride to go in between Harley and Batman, in that unused space there. .

From that pic and others I've seen, it looks like it's going on the space between La Vibora and one of the log flumes where the old employee entrance walkway was located. Strange spot, but I heard 3 other rumored locations at some point: the area you mentioned, the old gunfight square where the Rodeo flat ride is located, and the spot where Caddo Lake Barge (rockin' tug) sat.

That is exactly where it is. I am surprised at the location as well. At one point it was 95% going where the Caddo Lake Barge is. The CLB was supposed to be sent to Frontier City but after the major flooding at the park damaged the CLB along with the Cheesesteak place and Yosemite Sam's a decision was made to put it in Spain with a new name.

There were maintenance workers cycling the CLB yesterday, so not sure if or when it is going reopen.

The Cheesesteak place has been reopened already. It is pretty good and a nice change from the usual park offerings, IMHO.

There are rumors floating around on Screamscape about the possible removal of Aquaman to possibly be replaced with a new ride. Anyone heard about this?

Screamscape said something, yeah, I try to read that every day. Losing a water ride IN TEXAS would be a huge blow, but let’s hope there is a shiny new RMC Raptor on the way in...

On another hand, Yosemite Sam’s was one of the 7 rides I was able to do in only 4 hours at Over Texas on a rainy day. I absolutely loved it — this darkride went on for much longer than I expected, and that’s a good thing; the sets are really detailed and the story makes for such a cute and cheeky ride! I would hate to loose a unique darkride, and a great one at that! :?r

EDIT: Using Google satellite and the pictures Coastercowboy sent, here is where I believe Lone Star Revolution is going. Seems pretty feasible but it looks like that neighboring pathway would have to be modified to fit Lone Star Recolution in.
