    This bit is interesting in regards to the actual theme park attractions:

    So this is where another RMC is being developed at within the states. Ontop of that alone, there are another two guarenteed high thrill coasters as well.

    This just got VERY interesting.

    Another Texan RMC, eh?

    I wonder why they said Twisted Colossus and not something in Texas, or even a woodie for that matter. Could we see RMCs first ground-up hybrid?

    Because saying from the makers of new Texas giant leaves a bad taste in the gp's mouth after the death...

    Twisted Colossus is probably just used as its the newest and most fresh within the GP mindset.

    But still, most of the GP have no idea what a new coaster 15 hundred miles away is. Most of the GP here in Chicago had no idea about Fury 325.

    Because if they just named another Texan coaster they'd seem like a copycat.

    Thought this was long dead, but apparently not. Still just a lot of mud though.

    There's been a few articles about it on LinkedIn that are really interesting, about the use of land and showing the overall construction - it seems very much 'still happening'.

    Oh yeah this thing.

    I'm interested to see what they'll put in b/c there's no way the original plans stayed for this long.

    The RV park opened this weekend, so there might just be some life in this project! :)

    NRG stadium (which is across the parking lot from where the park used to be) is considered a downtown stadium. You probably wouldn't consider Elitch downtown either then.

    Bumping for the sake of boredom.
    So the theme park looks like it's gpnna open in 2020. The RV park, waterpark and play area however are happening. The water park has been delayed for the umpteenth time, but the new opening date i beleve is 2019. Also of note:

    As can be seen, they planned to rebuild Greezed Lightnin' from Astroworld. They sadly could not because the costs of rebuilding it would be too high.
    So to recap: Park's opening in 2020, water park and kiddie area opening in 2019, RV park already open, and Grreezed Lightnin' was planned for the park.

    Honestly, they are doing this the right way to ensure it doesn't become another Hard Rock Park. Yes, it is outside the city, but it's close enough for the metro to visit and with Texas continued rapid growth, this is needed.
