I read that multiple banners are in the park. Not just the one shown in that picture. There getting a dark ride in the theater. Maybe 2016 will bring a new coaster.

Seriously - I doubt they would do anything with Shockwave. I know plenty of enthusiasts would lose their minds if such were to happen


No, I wasn't saying I wanted Shockwave to be torn out. I'm just speculating. I would either assume turning the trains around to go backwards. (Is that possible) or the go-carts are getting torn out.

I highly doubt anything would occur to Shockwave as they just spent some $ fixing it because of the accident last year that had it down for several months. Also, please don't put it backwards! Am I the only person who doesn't like the trains in reverse? Only Mr. Freeze should be reversed. When it pushes you up its tower and all you want to do is fall forward, thats amazing.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

No, you're not the only one.

I can not wait till Namtab is gone forever. I hate it in reverse. It's painful! I feel like Mike Tyson and Mohammed Ali are taking turns boxing my ears with every twist and flip. Yes. Mr. Freeze should be the only coaster to start in reverse. It is most unpleasant for any other.
