Got over to the park early this morning. Happily all the trucks were gone, and I had
a full view of "the new ride", including the new queue they've created for it.

You can see light stands around it, and yes, those are Orca whales on the back of
the ride ops' bldg. Still no sign of the main ride itself, but it's now two weeks
until Playland opens, so everything should be in place by (hopefully) next weekend.

I'll check again, then. :wink:

EDIT to add: Actually, I am rather enjoying this not really knowing what's going in there. Considering all the social media attention on every new coaster and/or flat ride being built nowadays...not really knowing for a change, is... dare I say?.....fun? :wink: And kudos to Playland for not giving it away just yet (i.e not listing it in their Rides List until the park opens in two weeks).

Judging from the picture i feel like it's going to be a Zamperla Wave Blaster ride.

A family ride and perfect size.

^ Looks interesting.

Hmmm. "Whales jumping out of the water"...?

We'll all find out, eventually. :smile:

(And I'll take another look, next Saturday.)

^^ Well, now that the middle section is up, I don't think it's one of those Wave Blasters. Today's photos show it's really, most likely, another form of swings flat ride. I could be wrong, of course. In any case...definitely a "nautical" theme, lol. :wink:

Here's the photos I took earlier today...

Yeah. Have a feeling they replaced the old Wave Swinger with a modern one that is aptly named.

...Except this only goes up and down, round and round. No tilting, here.

^ Actually, I'm not waiting till next Saturday, Opening Day, to see it. I'll probably get back to the park
on Wednesday afternoon, and hopefully, see it all completely assembled. And take pix of course! :smile:

(And anybody else can get over there and take more photos, too!)

Seems like they started testing the wooden coaster.
The new ride looks interesting, can't think of anything similar.
