I'm about 90% sure there's a Lightning Rod-style wave turn on the other side of that ravine. The shaping is spot-on.

I was thinking your break run would be a lift hill. Basically have the trains go into the hill just like Thunderbolt with a tight Phantom style drop into the building. Or maybe they plan to demolish that building? Either way, I'm excited my original home park is getting some new. I haven't been able to get back there for a few years, I miss my favorite Kennywood classics!

Indeed, that's what I was thinking! 2017 may be a bit of an off year, but 2018 will definitely make up for it! :b :br

Well, I was planning a Kennywood trip in 2017, but seeing how there's this rumor now, along with Cedar Point's rumored 2018 RMC...I think I'll hold off until 2018 to travel that far up north again. 2018 is looking amazing!

Wowza! Thanks to nanner and Samuel for posting pics of Kennywood and drawings of the potential elements.

Screw 2017. I can't wait for 2018 especially living in the Cleveland area.

I've been hoping for an announcement like this since it was pointed out that Kennywood owned this land

This makes me wonder what they have planned for that ride entrance. If you look at that topology map it shows the new building being built back in the corner behind the Log Jammer. Currently that is all wooded area with some pavilions and materials storage. It's also where the train turnaround takes place.

It's been the rumored location for a new coaster. Will be great to see it become reality. Great way to add a feature attraction to the park that doesn't have much free space.

Its also worth noting that 2018 is the 50th anniversary for the Thunderbolt as well as the parks 120th . Could be a great way to celebrate.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I was wondering the same thing. The station is located awfully far from any area of the park that sees a lot of traffic. Guess there's just going to be a really long queue and exit like the Phantom has.

The point could be to get that area to have a lot of traffic. If it isn't crowded now, it will be when an RMC opens, and then the area could have additional attractions over the next few years.
