^There's still a ton of room left to grow! I'm sure this is only the first of many additions.

Well at least they are doing something Cedar Fair never cared to do.

^Exactly. Cedar Fair gave up on the park and the locals knew it. Should be a great success in the hands of Sea World.

^ yeah, they seem to be going in the right direction. I like those races a lot. Pretty fun to race when you are with a group of friends.

Lol. Maybe it will boost tourism for New Zealand?
TPR is my gateway to coasters. In NZ, all we have is bush.

^^Ski areas aren't getting extra business because Blizzard Beach in Florida is themed to one. Banzai Pipeline in Hawaii isn't getting more surfers because a lot of slides are named after it. Likewise, a mat racer named after a hill won't make people go to said hill.

:lol:

Perhaps they can name the slide after the full name of the hill: Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateapokaiwhenuakitanatahu Mat Racer. :p

Looks like a clone of the one at Splashtown.
I much prefer the 360 degree helixes on Octopus racers, but still awesome!

I reckon this one looks more interesting because you need more skill to follow through the S-Bend, rather than just leaning the same way through a 360.

I don't always seduce Donkeys, but when I do I use classy Champagne!
