Only had a short time to take pix in Festa. Ride looks fantastic in person.

The park's repainted a lot of the murals and fixed the Rhinefeld clock up. The Bistro Ice Cream shop looks amazing too. Looks like the park is taking a few notes out of KD40's playbook.

Do you have what it takes to challenge the daredevil's new creation?

Park is reusing the Dasher's Diner billboard for the 40th.

The banners look a little too tiny for their own good

Tempesto is unspeakably gaudy. I'll have to get used to it. It does look better from inside the park than out.

I've never been to BGW so I can't really speak on if Tempesto really fits in, but I do really like the color scheme, although it seems like it would've made more sense to have blue supports and orange track. Unless the park's goal was to make it stand out as much as possible. I do like the logo as well, and the name is started to grow on me.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Hmmm, you may be right. I think that would have complimented Apollo better, but perhaps they didn't want to venture into Goliath/Titan/Rougarou territory. Maybe it isn't quite such a visual assault in person.

It does look much better that way. BGW probably want something with a more unique color or maybe orange paint costs less on supports because the surface area is bigger.

I guess to show how that colourscheme would work and how it compliments Apollo's Chariot.

Either way, I do really like the color scheme. I'm also kinda surprised at how well it seems to fit into festa italia, it almost seems like a natural fit.

I've gone pantless!

Most of the people at Passholder Preview seemed pretty excited about Tempesto, and I didn't hear any complaints about the color scheme. The name (when it was first leaked) never bothered me either, and the back story was a nice touch.

They need to offer some sort of "pasta with Tempesto" at Food and Wine, or I'll be mildly disappointed. ;)

It does look fun, but it is going to be a capacity nightmare for the park. I sure hope that it will be included on the higher priced Quick Queue this season.
