    I assume it will be an Undertow clone then.

    Is it possible that this could be Xtreme from Blue Bayou Dixie Landin'? It is a Maurer SC2000, just like the one shown in the video, plus it closed in 2017.

    I'm more interested in the Adventureland song and offensive logo that this coaster has over the coaster itself?

    I was thinking that myself... But I hope not. I rode the Dixie one a few years ago and it was in such rough shape.

    But 6 Millions is way to much for a used Ride, will def be a new one.

    *Sigh* Des Moines is too far of a drive for me to realistically do this park...but at the same time...this would now be a +6.

    Iowa is not worth a +6

    After a period of stagnation it seems like this park is starting to do pretty well, Monster looked like a solid investment back in 2016 and this has come pretty soon after. Looking at RCDB the park looked pretty doomed before they announced Monster

    I saw someone on the Park's Facebook page ask if the ride was new or if it was the used one from blue bayou. Park said it was purchased new.

    That's an interesting color scheme for the ride being called "Phoenix"! I hope that Adventureland will paint it to a more suiting orange, yellow and/or red tone before it opens.
