That's a very nice location for a giant frisbee ride. Should provide some great views of the surrounding rollercoasters!

I haven't been on the HUSS version so I cannot compare it, but the Zamperla Giant Discovery at Tusenfryd was a lot of fun! :)

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

I think it helps that most of the rides are packed in the front of the park, but the rest of the park is nice and open. It means it's really easy to get away from the cramped areas. Of course, if they put in a new ride to replace to Go-Karts, that corner is sure going to be busy...

I was just thinking more or less the same thing. From the parking lot (and I assume the freeway) it looks crowded with rides. They sure have done well with packing things in there, and I totally believe they could get more if they wanted.

Was at the park this past Friday. WW is looking great! Though it may look massive and cramped in this location it fits perfectly. One of the supports are situated in the pathway used to walk from the parking lot to the entrance and WW will definitely swing over it. The should be awesome for both riders and guests walking towards the entrance.

The entrance plaza looks amazing. Has anyone ridden the ride yet?

Walking up to the front gate. They picked the perfect spot for Wonder Woman. It will be my first ride of the day.

What I'm seeing first glance while standing in line is that this Discovery only rotates in one direction vs rotating clockwise and counterclockwise like its other brothers and sisters already in operation.

Do you think there's a risk of people on the ride dropping things on the people walking below?
