Pretty sure we're getting our answers on the name based on the previous info combined with CGA's new Facebook cover photo.

Au13!

Au13...it all makes sense now...I'm curious as to what these "new records" are that Au13 will be striking...I guess we'll find out soon enough!

I know more about donkeys than women!

^I've never been so excited to see a banner on FB, getting more real everyday (well besides the construction site :-P) :)

Agreed. Feels like something semi-exists now. The site itself has a ways to go but this opens up an opportunity for the park to start generating a buzz without putting all of their eggs in 1 basket. Can't wait for Au29!

And my initial guess when I first briefly heard the "Au13" phrase I was thinking August 13th. But that would be too simple to figure out, right?

I've never named any of my season passes as that seems...strange, but I am going to name my 2013 CGA Gold Pass "Au13" in honor of Au13 :)

UPDATE:
Just received a photo from a friend.... Au13's gone vertical!!!

Wow just yesterday it was just a concrete pad, I have a good feeling they'll be done with vertical construction by years end at this rate! :br

I love donkeys more than me.

With Behemoth at CW, it seemed as if they deliberately wanted the full lift complete by the end of the season prior to its debut season. Nothing promotes season pass sales for the following season more than seeing construction well underway for something you have to come back for, and with the history of CGA, this must be a relief to much of the GP.

It's really refreshing to see something new go up. I'm really looking forward to seeing what that record is though!

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

For those who haven't realized this yet: Gold is listed as "AU" on the periodic table of elements.

So I figure the AU13 is talking about Gold and 2013. I'm looking forward to finding out more on the 29!

Now, I'm going to be thinking of this coaster each time I see anything gold-related...did not help when my next map to play on in Team Fortress 2 was called "Gold Rush" (Not quite Gold Striker). And there's plenty of "Cash 4 Gold" places around here that will help make me think of Au13/GS.
