If they were to be setting up across the street from the park or back in that area behind Thanksgiving would we even be able to see any construction yet?

I agree. I was hoping for 2014, but I think you are probably right. Its most likely going to be 2015 before we see a new coaster constructed.

If I had to guess, I bet they add some major water ride out by Hyena Falls. Hyena Falls is quite far from the rest of the waterpark, even though Giraffica is right next to it. They said the projects were going to be big for the next three years. So my money is on something very initiative/never seen before from ProSlide. Definitely would make the walk out to Hyena Falls more worth it and would stretch out the waterpark. Which would hopefully make it seem not as crowded during mid-July/early-August.

To me it looks like the only thing the water park lacks is some major thrill slides.
A set of four aqua loops would be great for them, as they are quite popular even with kids, not just grown ups.

Or maybe we could see Proslide's first set of four superloops.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

I believe you still can. The park website says you can ride it in street clothes or swimsuits.

It's officially part of the water park. There is a new entrance to Splashin Safari right where Girrafica is located. Technically you can wear shorts and a shirt on most (if not, all) of their water slides.

Well, the Wildebeest and Mammoth are pretty thrilling in theirselves. Don't get me wrong as I would love a body slide of some sort, but I just doubt it will happen. Again, I really have no idea what HW has in store for 2014/15.

I sure can't wait to see what happens. Apparently there's a number of rides (flats mostly) I haven't ridden yet and need to, along with the new Hyena Falls, so I need to get back out to the park again before this summer's over.

Also, Wildebeest and Mammoth are pretty thrilling in my book.

Yes, you still can - from just north of Plymouth Rock Cafe.
