Surely if they are putting the Corkscrew up as a mark of history it should be back to it's original yellow?

And the incessant hype from AT is giving Th13teen a lot to live up to.

The classic!

Should be thankful they're doing it at all. ::lol::

Seriously though, it would look awful. No point honouring history if its just going to took stupid.

Thorpe did better. :Pr Well this is unique I will give it that. Massive park rethemes like this are nice in my opinion. It keeps things fresh. I think Th13teen will be really a great and exciting new ride and attraction for many different age varieties. Its like a family coaster but for the more daring side. Especially with the "unseen" world first section and all that jazz. I wish I could be there for it to open. I really do but my first stop is Intimidator at Carowinds of course. I am totally looking forward to the reviews and spoilers for this ride come the next few weeks.

Quote from the site posted ^^

When the Sonic Spinball trains reach the bottom of the lift hill, ring collection sound effects are played.


That is a major win.
