Some very mysterious visitors have shown up on the construction site. I'll post pictures later.

Apologies for the double post.
Things are starting to get really interesting over at the site. Some spooky scarecrow-like figures have appeared on a few of the footers. One has also been placed right at the gap in the gate looking out into the park.

This guy just about spooked me the first time I saw him right there at the fence.

Here are a couple more. So far things seem to be lining up with the possible banshee theme.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

What exactly is a banshee or what does banshee mean?

I know more about donkeys than women!

Well scarecrows are to scare away birds, so maybe hinting an invert or wing coaster?? Or they just put them there to "scare away" people(Us..) ;)

I really like the tense in this secret coaster!
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

A quote from rcdb.com,

Initially, Mantis was to be named "Banshee". In Irish folklore, a banshee is a female spirit whose wail was said to foretell a death in the family. After this definition was printed in a local newspaper, the "Banshee" name was dropped in favor of "Mantis". The original "Banshee" logo would later come to be that of Dorney Park's Steel Force

the ghost seems to think there is a "Donkey Fairy"

That's awesome.
I don't think there is any hidden meaning though, they are just having fun.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Can't say I have seen a park do that before. Interesting!

That would really take me off guard if I saw the scarecrow up against the fence from the corner of my eyes. Interesting that they would do this though I like the suspense surrounding the ride.
