Awesome! Nice to see this park getting some love.

Still kinda odd to me that now all three of the parks main coasters are launched. :lol:
1. Intimidator 305 2. Kumba 3. Twisted Timbers 4. Mako 5. Alpengeist

Looks fun though, looking forward to trying this out.


No. This is a different model (the Horizon).

I just hope they get theirs working better than what I've heard at SFDK. I'm not optimistic a different model is going to solve the problems they've had.

Also, unless they are really planning on running it both directions, I hope they do away with the dual facing seats. While it would (hopefully) be fun to go through that backwards, I have my doubts as to that actually happening.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Considering the park's height limit, this could be a good addition if Skyline has worked through their issues with Harley Quinn. But that's a big if at the moment.

The video and original art that leaked show the ride completely over water, but the new concept art shows the ride over plants. I really hope they go with the water and give this ride some great theming!

I'm willing to bet what was officially released is more accurate vs what happen to shown before it's time.
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

I think you’re right unfortunately. Either way a new ride is a new ride, which is always a huge score for SWSD. It will be interesting to see what kind of rides they can add going forward with their very interesting and strict zoning and height restrictions.

Doesn't the park still have the requirement that 2/3 of their rides need to have an educational or conservation component?

Very interesting. Hopefully Skyline learned some lessons with Harley Quinn and this installation will go more smoothly. I will admit that I like the name and color scheme quite a bit.
