    Or.. IOA doesn’t need a JP Coaster less than a year after another Potter addition. Would also make sense from a synergy perspective unless Coaster in 2020 and River Adventure 2021 to round out the entire JW overlay. Will be interesting to watch regardless though.

    Add Hulk to that list.

    Maybe they meant first multi launch coaster.

    Then why not actually write it?

    This is why SWE's slump has been so depressing, and why it's so great that they rebounded a little last year.

    I know that tourists from the Midwest/Great Lakes/Northeast will skip BG because "it's a coaster park and I have one near me," but for those of us living in FL or down south, BG/SW desperately need to survive.

    You can't really trust marketing to not play loose with the facts, now can you? ;)

    Them announcing what they did for RMC Gwazi was a bonus. It wasn't the main event. Yesterday was an event to kick-off their 60th Anniversary Celebration and was the reason to be there. I think a lot of people were confused about that and wondered why they had a media event for so little info. I'm not surprised this is all they gave.

    It’s an easy enough mistake to make. It probably made sense to the person who wrote it and the person supervising probably thought it said what they thought if they quickly scanned past it. I assume that their main attention was on the RMC facts.

    It’s not a big deal. :shrug:

    I feel like we’ll get more details after Tigris opens, so the little we did get makes sense.

    I hope its a little longer than that. All that speed is going to be lost at the final brake run.

    Bourne is taking longer than Hagrid and it had an existing show building!

    This is a great prediction, many things could be inserted, like a double down coming down the old lift. If we get anything close to this, I’ll be greatly satisfied!
    I think we’re gonna be getting some major positive gs in this ride too.

    The general direction of the first half of the ride is accurate in that fan made prediction, although it leaves out 3 additional elements that I’ve found in the teaser plus the addition of what looks like a mid course brake run. Given that “Longest in North America” was never mentioned in the teaser, I predict that this will be shorter than steel vengeance.

    Does this give any indication to them beginning to build the rumored steel structure??

    The tallest coaster in the park, talk about a comeback!

    Was great to see this. Does anyone know the time these run at? There's none available on the website and i'm tempted to do it next time I go. Looks like the tour ends maybe 30 mins after the park opens?
