I'm sure the current Harley Quinn ride will be rethemed before the park reopens for 2018. I highly doubt they will have two thrill rides with the same name. Yes, it would have been much easier to theme the 2018 ride to a different villain but I see why they went with it.

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

Exactly. All it will take to rename/retheme the Troika is some paint and signage.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Yep. It just seems kind of weird since they just repainted it and such last year. I would have loved so see them name the tourbillon Two Face: The Flip Side. Although if they were going to add Superman themed rides in the Gotham section of the park (like Six Flags America) I would have loved to see them go with the name Lex Luthor's Invertatron, the name of the Zamperla windshear from Six Flags New Orleans. Or even Krypton Collider. I wonder when they'll release the new name of the troika? And it will be interesting to see what name they go with. Maybe they could call it Gotham City Crime Wave like the wave swingers at Six Flags New England and Six Flags Over Georgia.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

So the renderings show that the installations of this ride will be using tubular members instead of square ones. What do you guys think? Has ABC rides decided to change their design slightly for permanent installations? Or is this a copycat of ABC rides from an unnamed manufacturer? I personally prefer the square frame to the tubular one, as it seems to look more coherent overall (square ride, square frame, square parts).

The funny thing is I've seen countless people saying "The one in china doesn't count this is the world's first because this has tubular frames instead of square ones"

I doubt Six Flags would go with a non-reputable knock off company. But I like the tubular members a lot more than the square ones. The square ones just seem so bulky.

I know GADV and SFOT are both getting the "permanent" version of the ride. Im guessing that means the tubular supports. The previous versions at fairs are all the traveling version which I guess come with the square supports instead. And it's definitely not a copy, these are being made by ABC Rides.
