Wow, a B&M hyper being a smash hit with parkgoers? Don't make too bold of a prediction there or anything. :lol:

I am still so tickled that we're going to have an Intamin and B&M hyper both the same height and speed right next to each other.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Thinking about heading to the park next weekend, either Saturday or Sunday. Anyone have any insight as to what crowds to expect? I’m thinking Sunday will be lighter, but what’s the average wait on Saturday? I may do the Preview night (2.5 hours), and then come back all day Sunday.

Sunday will be much less crowded than Saturday. Saturday's can get so crowded that even smaller coasters like Trailblazer can have an hour wait with no water park open to spread out the crowds. Sunday wait times can vary. I have been there on a Sunday in October when it was 70 and sunny and mostly walk ons and last year it was cloudy and in the 50s and the major coasters can had up to 30 minute waits.

That looks like a pretty neat element.

That photo is photo shopped or something else is very weird. The whole section is jagged and misaligned... I don't know if it's actually an outward bank or not, but that photo is very suspicious looking.

It's also very odd that they would release such a strange photo..

I see what you mean, its probably a panorama. Its on the parks FB page, and that outward bank was included in the rendering if you look closely (around :30 seconds in, again around 1:38)



Edit: is "outward bank" and "outerbank" the same thing? Im not that much of a nerd. :lol:

My assumption was that they used panorama mode on their phone or something because yeah, it's a bit odd. The rendering did show that as an outward bank though.

Edit: ^He beat me to all of that. lol

When I originally saw the rendering, I was wondering if that outer bank was a mistake. I'm glad it's reality!
