    Normally I wouldn't be excited for the opening/re-opening of an SLC. However this one has the new restraints. Will this cause me to go out of my way to go to KK? No. However if they did this to the one at Wild Adventures I would make the 2 hour trip north to go to that park again. While I'm sure even with these new trains/restraints there will be some roughness, the absence of the old head-banging harnesses should provide less headaches....lol

    Looks like a fun family coaster, it'll be a hit with the kids.

    That said, I'm laughing my rear off with it being in Planet Coaster, and not in something like No Limits 2.
