So does this park have any actual theming? From the overhead it looks like it has a nice front gate then a bunch of rides plopped down in a field...

With 15 Coasters though, im sure i will make a trip over in the fall. It looks a little ambitious for an August opening.

It's like they have plenty of money and plenty of land, and they have zero idea what to buy or how to make the park look better. While they have a pretty nice collection, this whole place just looks messy.

What ^ said.
This park looks like RCT in real life. Rectangular grids, pretty much zero landscaping, and only catalog model coasters. It's a shame (from an enthusiast's point of view) that this much money goes into something as unimaginative. At least they have a kick-ass looking Intamin. But hey who knows maybe they'll add heaps of theming in the next few years to bring the rides together and actually make this a park!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

What a strange park! The entrance and the Dinosaur area looks really good. You then have one third of the park where it looks like they just went crazy and bought every single ride in the catalogue, and plopped them down RCT style. And then on the other side there looks to be one hell of a long walk to to get to the Intamin looper. The big fountain looks great at night though, with all the lights and lasers!

Oh and btw, anyone else found this part hilarious?? :lmao:

Yes! And there were also other times where there were a group of grown men all on the self powered peddling monorail. :lol:
Note to self: don't be stupid...

The random plotting of rides through out the park without any theming really reminds me of Mitsui Greenland. Makes me wonder if each ride will be operated by a separate vendor. I also wonder what the dinosaur themed attraction will be. No matter how this park turns out, there definitely won't be a shortage of things to ride when this thing opens.

With the way that they've randomly placed rides i'd question if they actually plan on themeing any of them. Imagine if they just left the jeep ride as it is and planted trees around it!

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

This has been mentioned in the Holiday World thread but i'm now pretty certain that the Intamin hyper splash at Ankapark is Giraffica/Pilgrims Plunge from Holiday World

My reasoning being the track used on the drop is unique as it allows water to run down it. Divertical, Hydro Racer and Typhoon all have just plain coaster track. Also look closely at the drop on the Ankapark ride and you can see some unpainted grey sections near the bottom.

I'm not 100% certain because there is no official confirmation but the evidence at least leans that way

Oh, cool, the park with all production model clones bought a failed ride. Sounds like a great time. :lmao:
