Cutback may be enough to get me to visit Water Country for a few hours next time I'm down there. I'm interested to give these saucer slides a second chance after a less than stellar ride on SFFT's Thunder Rapids.
Then the Screamin' Swing is an excellent addition for Busch Gardens and the placement sounds awesome.

Both of these rides are going to be great additions to the park. Screaming Swings are tons of fun and I really hope they start popping up more. Every time I read this thread, it just reminds me how much I love this park. I really need to make another trip out there because it's been about 5 years since my last visit. I may hold off until 2020 in case the rumored Giga comes to fruition.

According to the park's Facebook page, Howl-o-Scream will begin tomorrow, but the Terror-tories (scare zones) and outdoor mazes won't be running. I think they took a lot of their decorations down early last week in anticipation of Hurricane Florence, but the storm missed us.
I went to the park with a couple of friends last night for a beer and the "abbreviated" opening of HOS. None of the outdoor scare zones and mazes were running thanks to last week's hurricane scare, but all the shows and indoor mazes were.
Of the three new mazes, the best was Vault XX in the old Drachenfire station. This was "Howl-o-Scream's Greatest Hits," and featured monsters and rooms from many of the old mazes, such as Unearthed, Cursed, and Masquerage. It was pretty well done (even their old mascot, Jack, has a room).
I'll do a more detailed report when the event is going full steam.
