Didn't construction go vertical on this thing, like...a week ago?

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

It's looking incredibly similar to the Intamin spinner at Bakken...except Alton already has a spinner.

I'm stumped.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

^ I believe they've said that removing Spinball Whizzer is part of the long-term plan.

But still, I doubt it's a spinner.

I believe the plan was to re-locate Spinball Whizzer nearer the hotels rather than remove it from the resort as a whole.

Okay, that makes more sense in my memory now.

I'm pretty confident that the coaster is going to be in a similar vein to Mine Train Ulven at Bakken, which is no bad thing in my view!

I'm looking forward to visiting the park soon and getting a look at the construction site myself.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I doubt the tire driven lift could generate the craziness that is Bakken's Tornado.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!
