I didn't think it was possible to love S&S any more... until I saw those new trains. I'm also dying to ride those looping slides.
The large tube is the Mega Tube. I believe the "flume in flume" is different than the mega tube (though possibly related).
Flume-in-Flume just means that the flume has a large enough diameter to allow for another slide to pass through it. Much like the picture shows, a piece of green slide inside of the bigger one. I however, don't understand how this could be achieved from a support standpoint.
