I personally think you're trying to read too much into what Lisa Rau said.

1. Mountain - it is quite literally being built in the Ozark Mountains on the side of a hill
2. Mystery - no one "knows" what it is except the elite PTB
3. 18 - it is coming in 2018

Probably so, it's just that we know they share so many organization process assets on these rides. I am positive that at one point a lot of work was done on something similar to Mystery Mine for SDC based on what the chain got out of building that ride. Surely they would tap into that somehow if they are indeed building a highly themed coaster with a mine/mystery theme. Just a hunch.

They haven't made any references to the time traveler theme since the concept pitches. Either they are hiding it, or they went a different direction. For the last two coasters the final theme concept was different than anything in the pitches (that I can remember at least).

1. Next time you see me remind me to talk about that
2. Did you see the latest teaser sign? "Clock's Ticking..."

Yes.  Even a 2.9 earthquake is bad.  They had to re inspect everything in the park including the cave.

You can do it in one.  Shoot for that matter you only need one at SFOT as well.  Why not plan a day a Sea World and another going to Gaveleston Pier and Kemah Boardwalk?

Depends. What day are you going?  Do you plan on doing the waterpark as well?

Update for this week. 
http://www.midwestinfoguide.com/2017/06/time-traveler-construction-sdc_18.html?m=1

The wet weather and earthquake slowed things down this week but the big changes are new teaser signs and the start of a paint scheme on the station.

*InvadR

No Alpengeist or Loch Ness Monster?
I hope the "inappropriate level of wetness" didn't stop you from riding Escape from Pompeii.   That's one of the best themed shoot the chutes out there.  The fire effects inside are amazing.  DarKastle is fun too though weird.

I am thinking about a solo trip next week. Probably Wed and Thursday. I will try and take my good DLSR and get some shots. Unfortunately, I have not had much luck in uploading to this site so not sure how I can post them. have tried everything but I always get my file size is to large message. Any ideas or I can just set up a Facebook link?

Did you make it down to the park?

I hope you got the chance to ride Verbolten several times.  There are 3 different versions of effects in the show building.  My favorite was the wolves but the storm was cool too

This is why I hope they do optional spinner seating while still having traditional train cars like they did on Blue Fire with it just being on the rear car or perhaps every other car or something of that nature, even if it means making a special queue line in the station like the two backwards cars TNT use to have, seems simple enough.

It may seem "simple" to you, but it would be a logistics nightmare.  Also if the spinning is used to story-tell then that sort of defeats the purpose.  I feel confident in saying that this will be an "all or none" coaster.  It will be spinning or it will be conventional - it will not be both.  For me, every sign points to this being a spinner. 

I know a spinner is not what you are wanting, but I think that hardly constitutes it being a possible flop.  I have never seen a spinner that wasn't popular with the general public.  I am confident that the "puke factor" has been taken into consideration as I am sure this will be marketed as a "family coaster" like every coaster that's ever been added to the park.

I have no clue what this new coaster is going to be and I have not made it to the park this year to see any of the construction. However, I was wondering if there is any chance or thought that this coaster might consist of multiple tracks with two trains launching at the same time. Just thinking out loud regarding some options that might make this ride, other than the spinning cars, a little different.

That's definitely thinking outside the box but I think with the station set up this is going to be a single track ride.  Also there are already racing launched coasters out there.  The most famous would be Superman Ultimate Escape at SFMM.  Like I said in that really long post awhile back, we are really limited on "world's first" coaster types anymore.

Oh yeah. Adventureland is extremely clean.  The only park that rivals is Holiday World

Runner, if you share them to the sdcfans Facebook page like what Laroy did, then Shave and I can share them for you
