I don't think it's necessarily going to be a coaster, the corner where Enterprise is awfully tight. You have the 5D Cinema on one side of Enterprise, you have the road right behind it with the surface street crossing now, a ride to the left, and the amphitheater right in front of it. Enterprise being removed comes as no surprise to me because at the Keys to the Kingdom tour they said they wanted to remove it last year but instead decided to give it one more year to see if the maintenance issues got better or worse.

I'm betting against a coaster, as well.

I don't think a coaster will be going where Enterprise currently sits. I think another flat will just go there. A coaster will likely go where Dragsters used to be and behind Eye of The Storm or beside the waterpark and T3. Time will tell. I think an RMC raptor would compliment the park nicely. Regardless, I don't think we'll see anything major until 2019-2020.

Hearing that the old enterprise spot is going to be used for a new Zamperla Endeavor, I've also heard that the markers seen in the waterpark awhile back are for a new family coaster coming this season. My source is saying either a family GCI or Gravity Group that would be primarily behind Plummet Summit and Deep Water Dive's tower with the station between T3 and Taco Tequila.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Not that corner of the park. Enterprise's spot is sure to get a flatride.

I just rode it last weekend and was expecting it to be a lot rougher than it was. The only part that I think needs a lot of work is the last turn before the station. T3 was down all day so I guess that roughness makes up for missing the hang’n’bang.

Well what a coincidence, Ed Hart did wonder why some people do not like Thunder Run at the last rides event lunch and some people did say it was a little rough. Guess the park is trying to make it the #1 wooden coaster that it was when it opened.
