I remember that at the 2019 ACE Winter Warm Up at Carowinds, Dan Koch and another higher up at Alabama Splash Adventure told us that they were considering adding a new coaster in the near future. The three options presented were a Gravity Group family wooden coaster (they mentioned it being similar to Kentucky Flyer), a Gerstlauer EuroFighter (they mentioned Tantrum), and a ProSlide water coaster (they mentioned like Wildebeest at Holiday World). I voted for the Gerstlauer EuroFighter, and apparently it was the most popular option of the three. During the presentation, they mentioned that the earliest this coaster could open would be 3 years from then, so I'm very confident that this 2021 addition will be one of those coaster options.

On one hand, I do feel like it would be the Gerstlauer Eurofighter, but something else tells me that it is a Premier Sky Rocket II. I mean Premier sent out a post about a mystery project on the same day that ASA started teasing their coaster. It looked to be two Sky Rocket II cars underneath a tarp. Both would be amazing fits at the park. I think the Sky Rocket II would be the more visually appealing attraction since it would definitely rise over the tree line and be visible around the whole park. What I'm most excited about is the fact that the area around where the new coaster is going to be is no doubt going to get a nice cleanup. The area where the log flume was just looked like a mess after they tore out the log flume, plus the plaza over by the amphitheater just looked all crumbly and unattractive during the last season. It'll be nice to see that area of the park cleaned up.

Found the video of the presentation: ACE Winter Warm Up Welcome and Alabama Adventure and Splash Adventure presentation

If they add any combination of the above, all of them would definitely be substantial improvements and give the park another signature attraction alongside Rampage.

All of those sound like really solid options, but I don’t think a Raptor should necessarily be ruled out, as those seem to be flying off the shelves lately!
