The park said they are replacing Rolling Thunder with a walk through safari area.
Is the Dog Fart coaster foul smelling?

Anybody going to the park tonight? I'm thinking about going even if my friend bails on me so if that happens, I'm open to meet up with someone.

They commented in the press release that you would be walking past animals on your way to the new ride.

There is no reason why we wouldn't see them build a medium thrilling wooden coaster in the near future. It may not take the exact same location as rolling thunder, but more likely take the space behind the tower of Kingda Ka that is now unused as the safari is entered from a different location. this also opens up that location of the park for further expansion.

Personally, I would rather see something added to the other side of the park... right now it only has Batman and Nitro to really pull guests to that side, the dark night and skull mountain and just added rides that you wouldn't walk over to directly. I commented weeks ago about how an X-Flight clone would fit into the old chiller space quite nicely... though it would be nice to see them add a wooden out and back along the parking lot on that side of the park, maybe do the turn around the water tower and come back... would make the parking lot view even better than it already is!!!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Tonight it's even less crowded than Friday night last week. All coasters are a walk on or 1 to 2 train wait. They are set up for big crowds tomorrow though, overflow queues have been added to the coasters that weren't there last Friday night.

Can you post a link to this press release?

I would not be surprised to see a walk through area, but I'm confused why they shut down the existing animal encounter area this year.

I think it would be very safe to assumer that a new coaster, or at least some type of thrill ride will go in Rolling Thunder's spot. It just wouldn't make sense to demolish it if nothing's going to replace it. And, would the walk through Safari exhibits be like the ones between KK and El Toro?

Didn't they say in the Zumanjaro release that the baboons were getting a home along the new path back to the tower?
