^^^Looks like a fun ride and I have never been to Water Country before so even more motivation to add that to our bucket list of water parks to visit.

Anyone know if there will be an elevator lift for the clover-shaped tubes? Kinda hard to tell in that video, but it didn't look like it.

I know that trying to haul one of those giant 3-4 person tubes up 100 feet of staircase is definitely not much fun (and totally awkward) for the over 40 crowd, so the one's with the tube elevator lifts are most appreciated.

Michael and I thought we were going to die hauling the giant tube up the side of the hill (quite steep w/steps to boot) to ride the one at Michigan's Adventure. Definitely a one and done because of that even though the slide itself was tons of fun!

I imagine that there will be some sort of conveyor to haul up those rafts, like they have for anything else bigger than a small raft or tube.

We were planning on it but changed our plans. We'll be at BGW for a few days during spring break next year instead.

OK, who wants to see penguins flying on Southwest from San Antonio to Norfolk so they can make it to Christmas Town in Williamsburg?

At least a limo picked them up in Norfolk--that Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel traffic can be a pain.

I always look forward to Christmastown at BG....I hope this season is great for them.
In an unrelated news event, Blackstone looking to sell majority interest in Sea World. This is going to get very interesting for the park chain..
