As for where to put it, I could even see it going in Sleigh Ride’s current location. The ride is most certainly on its last legs and is starting to become an eyesore to the area.

BUT, here’s the real question for 2019: Will they run 2 trains? :)


Renders show two trains so I'm sure we'll get it at opening, but for the future I'm not sure.

Slingshot isnt even close to 300 ft. Redhawk is taller than Slingshot and thats 180.

These rides take like 2 weeks to put up, I doubt you'll see anything until spring.

This is a great addition, locals should be excited.
