    This ride is a clone of Iron Shark and will be replacing the log flume.

    Seems like good news for the park - at least from my foreigner perspective :D

    To people who've ridden Iron Shark: how enjoyable is it? To me it seems Gerstlauer has really improved on their Eurofighter designs.

    Iron Shark is a fine, but not overly exciting ride.

    This fills a hole in the parks lineup, but having been a decade since Darien Lake last put in a coaster and 18 years since they're last major coaster I can't help but feel dissapointed in this addition. This isn't really exciting enough of an addition to me to drive the 45 minutes to the park. Also knowing Darien Lake this will be running one train. I just hope it at least has the lapbars like Iron Shark...

    This will definitely have lap bars.

    Honestly, it's exactly what the park needs. Not bad!

    *facedesk* Why? Just.... why? Why the name? It's just begging for a coaster parody.

    *Sigh*... I suppose there's worse names out there.

    I don't like the name. But at least it's unique... I guess?

    Is it themed to children in a supermarket? It's not sunk in yet how bad this name actually is.

    Surely it's themed to the reaction of the average enthusiast at realising they have to ride another Eurofighter.

    Tantrum may be the single worst name for a major roller coaster I've ever heard of. I mean, I love it so much. I just love imagining the reviews for it.

    "Tantrum is straight up fun! It throws you around in all the right ways. Sadly, Tantrum is a bit too short, especially given the wait there is to ride it. I have to say though, the Tantrum was a little bit rough and did hurt. I wouldn't want to experience Tantrum too often"

    Think about what they named their multi-million dollar investment, Tantrum. Who is this targeted at? TANTRUM! I love it so much I wanna fly to Buffalo just to say I rode the Tantrum. Like, name your roller coaster off what angry toddlers often do, brilliant. Marketing team here is great, gotta love the tagline, "straight up fun!" I am impressed by the ride's ability to change colors, or moods, almost instantly throughout the video, much like a real Tantrum. Oh, this is a joyous name.

    @Antinos They Already added a Larson Loop and billed it as a Coaster in 2015. I can't Imagine anyone would add a 2nd Larson loop to the same park.
