The pinball idea was a good one but very tacky. Seems like they just went for that to give it 'some' sort of theming rather than none.

I love how they are re-using the corkscrews, very creative idea IMO.

Yeah, Rita is getting re-themed as well as renamed, or they
re dropping either Rita or Queen of Speed.

I love donkeys more than me.

Preferably both, one wouldn't make sense without the other, just slap some darker colours on the track and name it Fourteen.

I always thought that, Rita: Queen of speed was a really odd name for coaster. I don't think that they'll use 14 though either.

I like the Spinball-to-Sonic switch idea, if only because it'll be a tiny reference to that section of Toyland Tours, a ride I wish (as a sad dark ride geek) I'd got to ride.

Why would they re-theme that whole area instead of making Thirteen its own, new, unique area? In my mind, it would be much easier to do that and help ease confusion with names.

Just a thought.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Because there is no reference to Ug Land left in the area, the only possible excuse a few seasons ago was that Corkscrew looked sort of like bones. If they make Thirteen it's own area there will be 4 areas in the park each with 1 ride in them, one of which doesnt even match the theme.
