I can't imagine the lines this thing is going to pull in. Lost River always had insanely long lines, I can only assume this will be just as bad... if not worse! - Should make the season Trail Blazer pass even that much more worth it! :br
Bigger is not always better.

Keep in mind that there are 2 more seats on each boat. With the increased capacity I really doubt the line will be any different than it was for Lost River, about 60-75 minutes on busy days.

Call me weird but even as a coaster enthusiast I'm actually more excited to see this finished than I was for Time Traveler.

Same. This seems to be more “complete” than Time Traveler. To me it seems like they did Time Traveler a massive disservice by just plopping it down on a barren hillside with the only theming being the station. (Don’t get me wrong. I love the ride.) But of all the attractions at SDC it’s the one that just doesn’t seem to “fit” as well.

Agreed on that, love the ride as it is right up there with Powderkeg as my favorite coaster and had also de-throned Wildfire for me as a favorite. I kept hoping there would be more landscaping or theming done through the ride course but I was hearing statements from employees that they "ran out of money" allotted for the project so the extras were evidently scrapped. Hopefully that doesn't happen here.

As excited as I am for this ride (rapids rides are a favourite for me), that new BBQ restaurant with enough capacity that it won't have a mile long line is maybe even more excited.
