And we have a POV!
Not going to lie, first impression is... not blown away. Looks cool and all, props to Intamin for the tech demo, but ultimately that's what it is. Think I'd like it more if I rode it.
Some kind of announcement set for March 7, 1:30 PM EST. They haven't seen a new ride of any kind since Kentucky Flyer opened, wonder if this could be the year or if we're still waiting on the survey developments;
Idk much about them, only heard their name recently cuz they're attached to Alpenexpress and the Tiroler Flume at Europa Park. Apparently Mahuka at Walibi as well. Maybe someone just really wanted their own startup?
Park has posted a nice video of Sweet Valley as we actually near an opening;
I admittedly don't understand a lick of polish but very clearly heard Six Flags Magic Mountain so can only assume how they're promoting this one ;)
Annnddd double-post but yea, SFOT has publicized their other 2024 additions (sighhhhh)
Bucket Blasters will return after being removed for Aquaman three years ago, you can never have enough water rides in Texas. Brand new however will be the 41-ft tall Sylvester and Tweety Pounce and Bounce...

No surprises so far, we have a good two years...
Have kept an eye on this one and fast forwarding to now, we’re several weeks into Golden Bear Theatre demolition. This be the most recent coverage of it;
I do know with certainty that Intamin reps were snooping around that area of the park about a year ago, no doubt they’ve been back if...
As it swoops in towards a very likely opening this year, the Not-American Triple Loop now has a website; https://indianabeach.com/all-american-triple-loop/
Minimum height requirement is 48”, which if it’s accurate that they’ve gone with the old Mindbender trains is completely based, since that...
Hi yes, mega bump, this is still a thing
Some docs from November are pegging this project at $342M+ and 7,000 square meters. For recent comparison the new Zootopia land was $407M+ and occupies 12,400 square meters.
With the recent Epic Universe bombshells, there's been a lot of pressure on the House of Mouse to get off their asses and start developing new rides in Florida again. Yeah reskinning Splash Mountain and Country Bear Jamboree due to outdated ideas and constant new shows/festivals are cool and all...
A lighting package is now being commissioned on the ride. Friends at the park said that a multitude of color schemes were being tested on the one turnaround. Should be a dazzler in the evenings; https://x.com/penguintrek/status/1758317288460358140
