Awesome! I'm surprised a new Top Spin is being built. They have been dropping like flies the last few years!

I saw this the other day on Twitter, so nice to read the official park announcement! The new wooden coaster looks pretty sweet in the concept art, surrounded by rock work and water features. And a Starflyer themed to a Trident? Sign me up!

Did anyone notice on the RCDb page for Leviathan that the park is running the last car in the train backwards? That wins a ton of extra points in my book. :lol:
1. Intimidator 305 2. Kumba 3. Twisted Timbers 4. Goliath (SFoG) 5. Mako
6. Twisted Cyclone 7. Alpengeist 8. Mine Blower 9. Montu 10. Incredible Hulk

After reriding Ravine Flyer II this weekend, I'm excited to see another larger Gravity Group popping up.

Wow Australia really likes backwards cars, don't they?

The backwards seats will be the same format as the last row on DC Rivals Hyper coaster at WBMW on the coast also, not surprising as they are both owned by the same company. Still it has been a long time since a woodie was available to ride in Australia so looking forward to the opening.
The Old Man, no longer MIA.
