Aquaman update!

Demolition nearly complete.

Loading station and queue now a pile of rubble

Splash pool nearly gone

Only the lift structure, upper trough and supports still remain

I'm still not sure why this guy was cleaning the trough when the ride had been scheduled for demolition

Will one of those MACK splash shuttle rides fit in that spot?

Some photos I took yesterday. I love these nostalgic banners on the construction fence around Aquaman. Looks like they're getting ready for something "Big and New" in 2020.

That's Pac Man and Mrs. Pac Man in the one banner, not Krofft puppets. I have no idea what the last one is. I might have guessed something Krofft or Banana Splits related, but a Google search comes up with nothing like that. Maybe it's a Pac Man ghost?

There are shipping documents connecting Mack with SFOT floating around Facebook this morning.

In the late 70s early 80s where LOONEY TUNES land is located it was a play area called PAC MAN LAND

Yep, i remember Pac-Land. If it's Mack, it has to be the Power Splash!

EDIT:

I've seen those documents on FB. The cat is pretty much out of the bag now.

A Mack Power Splash will be an awesome addition to the park. I bet it will be extremely popular on those ridiculously hot 100+ degree days in Texas.
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

And on the rare cooler days, can the fill level be adjusted to reduce the splash?
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Coaster (PNE Playland), Phoenix, Boulder Dash
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Untamed, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Schwur des Karnan
