The planning document says plus or minus 225 feet, but it also shows this image

And that would most likely put the first drop right around that breakdance. Obviously (as we just learned since they didn't put an Impulse coaster in the old Invertigo spot) this can't be taken as gospel but it does seem to match up with the image in the planning document. If the location of the hyper in that document is right (which is a big "if"), then the filing is for a hyper.

The park just started doing a live stream of Railblazer's construction.

I'm kind of thinking that the 240' ride will be a star flyer. I mean aren't most of the Funtime star flyers that tall? Plus I just don't see them adding a huge hyper right after getting a big coaster in 2018. I *love* star flyers.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I agree. This is most likely a star flyer. I can't see them add Patriot, Railblazer, and a B&M Hyper all back-to-back.

But of course, I would love to be wrong! Cali could totally use a B&M Hyper ASAP!!!

It's like the responses to TPR's video posts...
"what ride is this?!"
"what park is this ride at?!"
"it would really be helpful if you included the name and location of the ride in your videos..."

Apparently, they're really pulling out the punches for Demon Re-Ignited. They're getting Tony Award winning actor James Monroe Iglehart (who was in the Broadway version of Aladdin and Hamilton) to voice the Demon and most likely sing the new song. And according to the new post on Facebook, there's apparently going to be on-ride music.

Yeah he actually says in the video that he is singing the theme song that will play in the queue. Demon: Re-Ignited is probably what I'm most looking forward to this Haunt season.
