Neat! It's interesting seeing Polin getting their slides here into the U.S.

As for the drop tower idea, I say "woah!" That idea has lingered in my head before, but I never knew that they would actually consider doing that! Heck! Maybe Intamin could now find ways to sell drop tower/strata coaster combos.

I say thay should dig a ditch as deep as they can under Kingda Ka for the drop tower to fall into, just so they can have a much higher falling distance! Think we can get it to have a distance of 500ft?!

Only 200 pounds maximum? Is that normal for a boomerang slide to be so low? I guess having only single tubes will help, but it just seems really low. Hopefully they'll have a scale or something at the entrance so people don't wait in line only to not be let on.

Also, El Toro has again been ad wrapped, but I'd say these are much better than the stride ads and actually look kinda cool.

^ What is that ad wrap for? It looks rather decent.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

^ I have been on a couple boomerang type of slide before but they were much steeper and bigger than King Cobra. They also didn't have any of the twists before and just the drop, where you can go in a single or double tube so it was more than 200 lbs. Also I think they may also be referred to as a Half Pipe type of slide.

I actually don't mind that type of ad wrap on El Toro definitely one of the better ad wraps I have seen. That train reminds a bit of Verbolten's trains... Just saying

Heh, imagine if it was an ad for Radiator Springs Racers!

Kidding, of course. I'd prefer this over the stride wrap and that hair gel wrap they've used on numerous rides.

Hello, I'm wondering how you guys think the crowds will be on August 14th and 15th, a tuesday and wednesday. Would it be worth it to get a gold flash pass?

The wraps don't fit with the spanish bull fighting theme of the ride, but it's still better than the ugly stride ones. I wonder which park or rides will get them next...

I'm not aware that any of the Boomerangos or Half-Pipe slides have a weight limit that low.

I think it would be pretty cool and fitting if it were ad wrapped by Matador beef jerky.
