Good news out of SWSD, my brother was at the park yesterday and said there are construction walls up for the new electric eel coaster. He said there are signs posted on the walls advertising the new Sky Rocket 2! Looks like they cleared all the necessary hurdles and the ride will actually be built!!

Can someone give me a ballpark of where in the park the new coaster is going in?

Good to the last drop

Thanks! With that being the case, it should make quite an impression from the parking lot.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm excited for this addition to the park. It'll give them their most thrilling ride by far.

I think Manta is still going to be their best ride, but that's more fun than thrilling.

^ I don't know why I was thinking the blue was going to be a brighter blue. . .

Well, anyway!! The color looks good. Can't wait to see this thing going vertical!! I absolutely love these coasters.

^ I think the idea was to get it to blend in with the sky as much as possible. People that have nice waterfront homes don't want to see a giant red rollercoaster for example.

^ If it were red it would make me want one of those waterfront homes even more. :lol:
