Plot twist: the coaster is actually manufactured by IKEA.

Six Flags will begin assembling it in-house soon and probably won't finish until Spring of next year.

It will all go wrong at the eleventh hour when they discover they're missing two pegs, one Phillips head screw, and an Allen wrench.
That coaster dad [335] and that coaster kiddo [212]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Twisted Timbers. Intimidator 305. El Toro.

Kiddo's faves: Talon. Alpengeist. Copperhead Strike. Twisted Timbers. Fury 325.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Nah, it'll take until spring of next year just to find the Allen wrench. October 2019 they'll call every friend and family member to see if they know how to put it together, and by March 2020 they'll just give up entirely and go buy a real bookshelf instead.

Great news from SFDK!

Now playing in the Iwerks 4D Theater for a limited time! We've brought back a classic!

I LOVED Dino Island as a kid! I would be so excited to see it again for old time's sake! Only thing they're missing is the giant T-Rex biting the fence over the queue line, and the velociraptors fighting each other in the queue. ;)

^YES!!! Dino Island was my first 3D motion-theater experience when it was at Kentucky Kingdom back in the late 90’s (maybe early 2000’s?) Such a fun film/ride!

Same thing, film-wise. Only missing the queue animatronics as I mentioned. I'm sure those are long gone.

One can still dream of their return, right? :Pr

That would be awesome! I found a youtube video the other day from a 1998 visit and they were filming all the animatronics. Made me really nostalgic.
