    A shuttle coaster after getting the Skyrocket? I think a giga would round out their portfolio better.

    So...a shuttle coaster with a 76mph launch. One model that could make sense is the Premier LIM Shuttle Loop Coaster (AKA Mr Freeze at SFOT & SFFL. for a 300 foot tall coaster? Not buying it seeing as that one launches at 70 and is only 218 feet tall. There is a third (Speed The Ride) that was 224 feet tall with the same speed. It could perhaps have a 300 foot drop down to the river I suppose using the terrain. Who knows. It's the most unrealistic of those rumors on that whole article, but would fit in that area.

    BGWFans is backing the shuttle coaster rumors. Keep in mind, they were the first to leak the blueprints a couple of weeks ago.

    A lot of people assume this will be by Premier at this point. However, a page on FB brought up how much it looks like this coaster....by Intamin. I forgot they made this similar type coaster.

    I don't really get why people considered DarKastle to be a "world class dark ride". Last time me and my friends went it became an inside joke because of how mediocre and failing the ride was. The ride was probably the best they could've done for a Spiderman type dark ride, sure, but it definitely wasn't anywhere near that same quality.

    It's still better than a warehouse.

    Not saying it isn't, but I don't know if we should put things up on pedestals that they really haven't deserved simply because it's gone.

    If DarKastle was still around I could see people complaining about the state of the ride and how it's not really up to standards like they do with Atlantis or Dinosaur. It's as if people think it was always world-class simply because it doesn't exist anymore. I don't know if that's a fair thing to say.

    It was a very, very, very good dark ride.

    It was a solid dark ride and quite ambitious for a regional park, but "very, very, very good" may be overstating it a bit.

    In the end it needed an updated film, not a removal. Would rather have that over their not great VR thing.

    I liked it, but the storyline was rather incomprehensible. And some of the screen portions had odd motions/RV movements. It didn't quite gel.

    I could say the same about the Transformers storyline, though.
