No, you aren't. Intamin and the parks made the press announcement at the IAAPA Expo late in the week as opposed to on Tuesday with all the others. On top of that, neither Intamin nor the parks have released any official video to the public, and the stats were only given out at the show, on printed pieces of paper. The coasters don't have names yet either.

For everyone else (lurkers included), please don't hate on Intamin or the parks for doing it in this way. Those coasters aren't coming for several years and it's very likely that the public won't get any official information until closer to when they start construction - and the designs may change! I'd be willing to believe that the announcement was less for the press and more for the potential client base to know, "hey, we can do crazy unusual coaster designs like those other companies too". It seemed very low-profile to me and the parks wouldn't even let Intamin loop the video on their screen after the announcement was over.

Thanks to all the folks that posted the updates for the ones like me that have no chance being there right now.
I hope I'll one day have a chance to attend the IAAPA!

I really liked the way you did it this year of 1 big day of coverage and then smaller updates accordingly.

Finally got around to go through your updates. I always enjoy seeing your IAPPA coverage! Thanks!

GyroStore ride on page 2 - I have never seen a multi-seat version before. The video shows it flipping a lot but the other axis is moving slowly. Years ago, I got to try the single seat versions (1 was sit down and 1 was stand up) and I loved them. They flipped every which way like crazy (more than the one in this video) and made me dizzy as hell!

It was cool to see the Daniels Wood Land display. I only know them from watching their show "Redwood Kings". They do some amazing work!
