Holy f*ck, two more coasters, one of which is going to be an Intamin LSM launched.

I know the info is super early and all that, but it would be so cool if it was a "Blitz Coaster" a la Maverick and many other incredible rides from them.

I think it will. Accounting isn't as simple as "we spent X amount of money on the place, so we don't turn a profit until we've made X amount of money back."

Brit and I thought that the surf rider at Mall of America was a blast. It was the sleeper hit of the day for us. I’d love one of those.

I wouldn't go that far but I could see it. It's a ton of fun.

Well... actually I can't see it but if Log Chute were to randomly explode or disappear into a black hole leaving the rest of the planet perfectly intact then yeah, sure. :lol:

Since we went during Halloween the log flume turned into the fog flume. Nick Universe was dark. The rides had lights on and some strobe like lights were on. The Fog Flume had some really cool Halloween effects and lights going. You would of loved it

Glad you liked it! I loved Avatar, despite the spinning. It was just below the threshold of too much spinning and just above the threshold of too much fun.

This is the best picture we've seen of the Intamin LSM coaster

This spinning coaster isn't getting any of the attention but it looks amazing
