I've said it elsewhere, and to a number of people in person, but I'll go ahead and say it here. I am predicting this coaster will be themed after/named for Lions, and will feature the concept of "King of the Jungle" in some way. I think this fits with the fact they're replacing a coaster that partially had a Lion theme, and even though Kumba can refer to either Tigers or Lions since it's apparently Swahili for "Roar", they don't have an explicitly "Lion" themed coaster anymore, while the Tiger half of Gwazi now is represented by Tigris. Additionally, the track color being purple would go along with a "King of the Jungle" theme, since it's a color often associated with royalty. Just my guess. Could be wrong, but it definitely checks out on a lot of levels. As for the name, it's hard to say... King Gwazi (if they retained the old concept, but without it dueling, that may not make much sense)? Jungle King? Simply "The King"? Who knows... Maybe I'm way off base, but it's fun to guess! I just know I am super excited about this coaster, as a huge fan of the park already, and RMC in general, and can't wait until Thursday to find out more! :b

I'm excited to hear what details are revealed... These parks have struggled for a while, but I appreciate how much corporate is shifting their investment strategy to drive new business while adding new additions to parks that traditionally saw more sizable investments only every 3-7 years.

GOLD. :lmao: I love this park so much.

Also when I went to view the picture, the number of likes was 666. Tried to get a screenshot but turned to 667 before I had the chance. Purple People Eater theme confirmed.
