^ I was thinking of leprechauns, pots of gold, and double rainbows. :lol:

Whatever they pick, I'm sure it will turn out great based on Busch's pedigree.

I am so excited by this development I've always thought a Screamin Swing would be a fantastic add to Ireland! Not to mention it's my favorite flat.
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

If it is a Screamin' Swing (which would be OK by me), they should put it in Scotland and call it the "Highland Fling."

If BGW really does get a Screamin Swing in 2019, that pretty much confirms whatever Project Madrid ends up being will be a coaster. Probably a giga, according to the height rumors. I wonder if it'll end up being like Fury 325, given the fact that they already have a airtime machine in Apollo's Chariot, and another sort-of airtime machine with Invadr.

I think if they build an S&S Sreamin' Swing in 2019 it means they're building an S&S Screamin' Swing in 2019 and I for one could not care less what else gets added to this amazing wonderful theme park that I love so much anymore because they will then have my favorite flat.

Screamin' Swings are amazing flat rides, so if this is true that would be a great addition to an already great park. Considering they have received 3 coasters in the last 6 years, a large flat like this is perfect IMO.

^ I see where you are going with that, but personally Highland Fling sounds better

How's 'ol Mach Tower doing these days? Is it usually open day to day or is it still "I'll count on it being down but if it's open that's cool."
