Anyone know, what is all of this in red? Old Lion Country Safari? I'm assuming the park doesn't own the area in yellow?

Yes, that’s the former Lion Country area. No idea who owns the part in yellow.

Wasn’t Intimidator’s/X-Sector’s plot part of the safari too?

Hummm, with big wave bay leaving I wonder if they will expand back in that area or keep it blocked off with a new attraction in the same spot?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm not familiar with KD water park (or KD as a whole for that matter). Is Big Wave Bay a wave pool, or a slide?

Donkeys are my way of life!

It's their original wave pool, located at the very back of the water park. They also have a newer wave pool located midway through the water park.

Went and battled the heat yesterday. Barley anyone at the park, was able to make several laps. Rode I-305 21 times(several of those at night). On Twisted Timbers, the first half is awesome but after the 3 big air time hills, the ride kills its re-rideability with all the jerky ejector air. Fantastic day, glad I was able to get back to this amazing park.
