I recall admiring this design when it first came out. Glad to see plans for an installation. Sounds like it will be a hit!

I was hoping for a double looping drop box waterslide of awesomeness but this seems cool too. I vaguely remember looking at concept art for this thing when Polin came out with it a few years ago. I was wondering when they would start showing up at parks.
Yeah, I made my username before I rode I305.....

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

A racing boomerang slide! Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?

I'd kill for something like that to come to the left coast! It just looks absolutely awesome! :)
Ignore the screaming in the woods...

Everything is fine.

That looks awesome! I went on the half pipe at SFA the year it opened and I thought it was great! I can't wait to check this ride out when it opens!!!

Good to the last drop

Don't worry, I'm sure if it does well in Jersey you will soon get one in Valencia. :)

I love the look to this slide, and good to see so much positive attention to it hear in this thread. Between this and the Star Flyer gadv is certainly being generous with the thrills this year! Bravo!

(Wouldn't mind a wingrider next year though SFGAdv ;)

I love donkeys more than me.

I remember seeing this on Polin's website and hoped that an American water park would add one. It really stands out from what is out there and looks stunning.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I don't get why Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in Texas has not made their HUGE announcement for their new ride. Under the "more news' tab it states "New for 2012, Dive Bomber, a 5-story free fall experience that will leave you breathless!" So why isn't there an announcement or any news about it. The front page of their site doesn't have any info on it ether? Strange... www.sixflags.com/hurricaneHarborTexas/info/news.aspx
Top 5 Coasters:
New Texas Giant (SFOT), Mr.Freeze Reverse Blast (SFOT), Kumba (BGT), Goliath (SFOG), Shockwave (SFOT)
