Primarily, I am so excited to see Kentucky Kingdom getting a little love! Maybe if this water slide and water park expansion brings in more crowds, we'll see a new coaster there pretty soon.

Second, regarding restraints on water slides...imagine having all four of those people wearing some kind of strap to keep them in the raft. Then the raft tips over. You can't just assume that everyone restrained in a raft will be calm enough to figure out how to undo their restraint and get out of harm's way when they're face down in the trough. If the raft tips over and everyone is able to just fall out of it and immediately upright themselves, it could prevent injuries, people swallowing too much water, maybe even drowning if there was enough water at that point.

This looks awesome. Do you think that you might actually be able to get airtime on that bunny hill near the end because if you can then this is an extra sick water coaster.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeah, I'd also see restraints as a huge safety hazard. I've been in situations where I was strapped to a kneeboard that was flipped over with me fully submerged in the water. You have to undo the velcro strap to get yourself out and above water. It's a little bit scary, and a bit much to ask of the average theme park attendee.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

and my desire to go to the waterpark @ SFKK goes WAY up. I really like the colors, they're really vibrate and will be very noticable, so it'll probably be visually appealing in a way.

Cant wait for it to open!

umm...so i defiantely think TPR has had its first glitch...to my knowledge

No it's not your computer, it's doing it on mine too.
