Ahhhh, I've been checking for the Pepsi wheel and nothing's been coming up. Guess that sponsorship was dropped.

rcdb is now showing a 3rd coaster at Nickelodeon Universe, a Chance Family coaster.

And this shows up at IAAPA.

We now have water slides and blue coaster track which seems to indicate a fourth coaster.

That track style looks like EuroFighter track (you can see the green track in the background). Could they possibly be using two different track colors for the Takabisha clone? The coaster really does feel like two coasters spliced together so it wouldn't shock me.

Apparently the blue coaster is a small Intamin along the lines of Playland's Gale Force (small-footprint multi-launch with inversions). Some social media people have been calling it a "short loop".

Thanks, I just looked it up. Having a surprise Intamin is always a plus.

rcdb is now showing a Surfrider model along with an LSM, both from Intamin.

Whether or not you consider the Surfrider a coaster or not, even two more big rides at this point are surprising.

Those water slides look fun, I'm curious to see what season pass prices will be for these places.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!
