ANNOUNCED: - Retracking of Legend (working with GCI) for "smoother ride and additional airtime" - Additional support structure on first drop - New THEMED tunnel underneath Frightful Falls - Reprofiling of helix exit to include a double down
Yay for double downs and Legend retracking! It wasn't stated, but we might see the old rolling stock replaced by Millennium Flyers. Also, I hope that they don't touch the banking on those turns, we can't lose those CCI laterals!
If they were switching trains, they would have announced it. They're lowering the turn right after you come under the lift and that turn already had some very strong laterals, so most definitely it'll get banked, but I'm guessing it'll carry about the same amount of laterals while getting more airtime going into the new tunnel.
Wow! A new double down on Legend!! And in a good spot too. The spot being renovated was the big dead spot on the whole layout. Should be a fun addition! Whoever it was that said "Getting Closer Interested" meant GCI, you nailed it haha. This is exciting! It'll be Holiday World's first venture with GCI!
After thinking about it, the new tunnel's location makes a lot of sense, because it's going under Frightful Falls. Anyone who's ridden Legend may remember that water trickled down onto the track and occasionally riders would get splashed with water. Some water would also collect on the track and be soaked up by the wood. I can see why that would create some problems, so the tunnel should have some good functional use too helping the water run off to the side.
