Looks great! It’s always nice to see small parks expand with another large coaster. Even though SeaWorld just worked with GCI on Invadr, I have a feeling this is going to be a GG creation, mostly because they seem to “specialize” in these kiddie wooden coasters due to their train’s increased flexibility for the tight turns. But either way, this is a great addition!

It's nearby, we have a Season Pass to Busch / SeaWorld parks, I'll definitely drive by it from time to time and now they have two perfectly respectable looking coasters but it's f*cking Sesame Place and we're two grown a** adults so I've never been there.

I feel like now we just need to bite the bullet and go for it, then never speak of this again.

If you've never been you should go! It's actually REALLY NICE little park! I actually don't think you'd feel that out of place to be honest.

Those stats seem to line up closely to Roar-o-saurus so I thought the same thing.

This looks like it could be surprisingly awesome. Getting some good Wooden Warrior vibes off of this one, or maybe an InvadR Jr.

Here's hoping my daughter gets up to that 40" minimum by next year, it looks like she'd love this one!

It's still gonna be weird for solo enthusiasts. I expect a ton of awkward glances and staring at anyone without kids. :lol:

I'm tempted to go here now on our Giant East Coast Trip, but we already probably have too many parks lined up.
I probably couldn't have my friends pay a good amount of money to go to a children's show themed park.

I confirmed with the park - This is a Gravity Group coaster.

46" for single riders seems a bit steep when similar coasters like Wooden Warrior and Coastersaurus have 42" restrictions, but at least it's offset by the 40" requirement w/ a companion. Should help make sure this ride is accessible to pretty much everyone in the park's targeted audience.

Definitely good to hear about the Gravity Group connection. I haven't been on many yet, but I've enjoyed what I've rode. If this thing is half as good as Wooden Warrior the kids and I will be happy campers indeed... and with it being only 40 feet tall, I might even be able to talk the wife into it!

And Michael, as a dad of little ones, when they're 40" to begin with you don't want them doing that much on their own anyway. 40" with companion is fantastic IMO.

That's great to hear! I'm sure we'll get there in the next year or so to check this thing out. It looks like a great little ride, it definitely has a "Wooden Warrior" vibe and we loved that thing.
