It surely matches the ride names / images I posted a few months back... (well, it looks like they tweaked the name of the "treehouse")

I don't think I should share how entertained I am by these ride names. :devil:

They are common at smaller parks in Europe. In the states, I know they have them at Dollywood and the Legoland parks.

HFEC has installed those HEEGE Towers at SDC and DW already. I guess they are popular, I always see a line for them. I don't see the attraction honestly.

It's great that they're adding a set of Flyers though, those are always a hit in my book. I'm glad the ride has made a comeback in the last decade. Moose on the Loose is a solid kiddie/family ride.

This is a solid set of additions that will serve this customer base well.

I Love Donkeys!

Quick question about darien lake, as i am most likely going to visit it this year.

According to many critics, Predator has been described as painful. However the POV looks quite good, it has been compared to Gwazi ,Ghostrider and Meanstreak. But i like Ghostrider and Meanstreak.

so which is it, a Ghostrider(painful and fun) or a Gwazi ? (painful) :airtime:

The Predator in my opinion is not that painful of a ride, but it's still fun :airtimer:!

I haven't been to DL in quite a while, but the last time I was there it was painful.
