What's new for 2020?

Postby larrygator » Sat Dec 28, 2019 10:35 am

My apologies, I did not realize this thread had not been released yet.

Just like we did for 2011 - 2019 this thread will serve as a place to house a list of "what's new" for 2020 at major parks and links to the announcements. We encourage you to notify us of any new rides/coasters by posting in this thread.

Discussions about individual rides and parks should continue in the appropriate discussion thread through the links in this thread.

If you think we missed anything let me know and I'll add all verifiable attractions.

Rumors will not be included. We also don't plan to list every random out of the way upcoming attraction, so outside of major announcements this is limited to parks TPR has covered (or will likely cover in the future) in the Park Index.

Legoland New York (Goshen, New York) (2 family coasters)

Thanks for compiling this!

I think the entry for Walibi Holland should be for Walibi Belgium.

Is it worth mentioning some of the rides that just barely opened at the end of 2019 like Fun Spot Kissimmee's Hurricane?
Top 3 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland)
Top 3 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Twisted Colossus

Great list you've put together, Larry! Thanks for doing this. :smile:

An addition to this list? There's also the new Happy Ride w/Baymax
flat ride, that's opening the same time as Beauty/Beast in Tokyo Disneyland.

I saw a reference to a Baymax meet and greet in one thread, In my free time I'll look again in the TDL thread.

thanks

So many great new additions next year, it's wild to see that every SeaWorld and Busch park is getting a new coaster next year. Jersey Devil Coaster, Iron Gwazi and Mickey and Minnie's runaway railway are the ones I'm looking forward to the most for parks I'll be visiting. I'll probably avoid trying to see most pictures from it but really looking forward to Nintendo Land in Japan as well but I don't see myself making it over there next year to see it.
