Maybe "two is better than one" can be adding a second type of ride that already exists with the park?

A 2nd RMC? A 2nd hyper? A second terrain LSM coaster to make up for Lame Throttle? :lmao:

EDIT: Here's the whole series:

Maybe they are finally adding the missing second half to YOLO Coaster.
Bigger is not always better.

Racing, west coast themed roller-coaster? I'm putting my money on a launched version of Windjammer.

Didn't the original T-rex concept have a dualing portion? Chain lift first section and the 2nd section would launch and race the first section?
Best Wood Lightning Rod....Goliath SFGAM....Shivering Timbers....Storm Chaser...Voyage
Best Steel Maverick...Lighting Run.....Montu...Mako..Fury...Afterburn...Manta
Honorable mentions Kumba..Raging Bull..Legend..Cornball..M Force..Rapter..Mr Freeze

You know what....Way to many good coasters the best :lmao:

Sounds a lot like Twisted Colossus, minus the launch. And knowing SFMM, it would never race lol.

I'm glad to finally see some teasers up. I think this basically confirms it is a roller coaster. Can't wait for the announcement!

Found a video of the T Rex concept shown and IAAPA and it matched what you described. I think it would be really cool if this is what their new roller coaster ends up being. But the 2 is better than 1 has me perplexed as to what they would be making.

Hmmm............. very interesting! So many thoughts about the ride. Hope they really make good use of that land and not waste it like they did with Yolo! I still think that coaster could have been put somewhere else in the park instead of the old Log Jammer site.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

It might be a double launch coaster? Isn't it rumored to be a Mack? Most Mack launchers of recent always seem to have two launches.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

They are going to brush the spiderwebs off of Batman and Robin: The Chiller and install it, marketing it as a new ride.
