There is a site that has some artwork showing some of the projects for Ocean Park, including this Floorless, which I believe is being called "Hair Raiser". When I saw the name on Screamscape, I thought it was a bit odd, but then I saw the artwork for the entrance, and it has this cool "Old Coney Island" look to it, and makes the name seem more fitting.

Here is the link: Ocean Park Artwork

Looks cool to me

What's with the donkeys anyway?

So its official. Its a floorless coaster. people said that stand up coaster hurt?? Good thing its not a stand up then. But they need to do something about The Dragon like what they did with Python at Efteling.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Floorless are more enjoyable than stand-ups. Good choice!

It seems an odd choice to me. They already have Dragon which is a standard sitdown ride and the floorless dive machine at Chimelong isn't that far away.

Although I'm not massively surprised its not a stand-up, It seems there may have been better options than a floorless, Unless the plan is Dragon will bite the dust sooner rather than later.

I'm a culture ho

Chimelong may not be all that far away, but tourists need a visa to enter China proper whereas they don't need one for Hong Kong.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Wow, the new color scheme has wayyy to many different colors going on. Personally I think it's pretty ugly looking, but the new floorless coaster looks amazing. Even though its on the small size, it still will seem massive overlooking the ocean from the ridge.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Nice paint job! Makes me think of, like, fairies and unicorns.

Dragon has one of the most RCT-ish looking layouts that I've ever seen.
