How much work can they really do on it before SFFT has to announce something?

Oh wait. Nevermind.

Because SDC. Forgot.

You think they'll call it a sno-cone stand for a few months?

Well obviously they can do quite a bit since there's a big wooden helix missing from the ride.

I'm just curious to know if they're working on anything else.

My point was that if they're doing a rehab, rather than just taking down the coaster, at some point they're going to have to do some work that absolutely points toward them modifying it rather than just removing it.

The joke was that since SDC actually had coaster structure in place for months before officially announcing anything, that maybe SFFT can pretend that "there's nothing to see here, move along" even after Iron Horse track starts appearing on site and new track is laid.

Sorry if the point was too obtuse.

Well, it's... a name.

2013 - Iron Rattler - Rumor - (8/23/12) The latest rumors sent my way claim that Rattler will be reborn as “Iron Rattler”. While we’ve seen the park already begin the process of removing the painful triple helix from the top of the cliff, now the first rumors about the new features are starting to trickle in. For starters... how does a barrel roll inversion sound to you? Good I hope, because Rattler is going to have one in 2013. Look for the coaster to also feature new trains from Gerstlauer, very similar to the ones on the Texas Giant, but with their own wicked reptile theme of course. More to come... but I’m already getting very excited about this one.

I'm 100% sure that the average person doesn't pay enough attention to notice one way or another, even if new sections go up during the day while they are visiting the park.

I wonder how long it will be before the novelty of inversions on a wooden or wooden structured roller coaster goes away.

Barrel Roll off the side of a cliff would be pretty amazing, right? :)
