According to local area sources, the new coaster apparently is a new S&S El Loco style coaster, and which is expected to be themed to Green Lantern. They are hoping to put up the coaster quickly and have it ready to open by Boxing Day which will fall on December 26th. According to new rumors, this may be the tallest S&S El Loco coaster to date. Another rumor claims that the coaster may feature new style cars with 4-across seating, but I can’t confirm this aspect just yet, so stay tuned.
I'm getting quite excited about this coaster (even though I am not a Mumbo Jumbo fan). If the rumours are correct I think this could be a good addition:
- Just over 100 days from track arriving it will be open.
- For something like an El Loco, taller can't be a bad thing right (don't get onto the Mega Lite argument here)?
- 4 across seating, means double capacity so it could have a capacity of 1440 pph (standard ones have 720 pph)
My only concern is what the name will be, if it is following the Six Flags it will be something like: Green Lantern: Face The Drop
