Nah, I heard that they're adding VR so that would make it 3 credits.


In all seriousness though, I think this a great addition to the park. We haven't gottten a new thrill ride since 2004 and superloops are fun rides, happy to see one come here

It's 10 stories tall, so it counts as 10 credits.

It's actually 2 credits... One forward, one backward....

Forty-eight. One forward, one backward, multiplied by twenty-four seats.

I'm glad to see that KC is being replaced by another inverting flat ride. After the loss of Orbit we really needed another one.

Interesting. Is this still going to be a Larson Super Loop, just... a mega version? Or one of those S&S things? It says 32 passengers rather than the typical 24 on Super Loops, so I guess Larson just "blew up" their basic model? Very intriguing...

With it going near Batman and Joker, I'm surprised it isn't getting a DC Comics themed name.

Whats funny is that if you look at what ride King Chaos replaced (an Intamin looping starship) This is basically going back to that same ride, considering ride experience and ride motion.


That makes sense...do you think Twisted Cyclone would fall under that banner too, though?

EDIT: Apparently the park was teasing the ride with the hashtag #ChaseTheStorm2018. So it sounds like this is a placeholder name after all...

So where is this going? I'm not very familiar with the park. I've heard someone mention it is replacing KC but I don't know what KC is.....

King Chaos is a Top Spin in the Mardi Gras section of the park. It's to the left of the entrance, near the front.
