Herchend is doing a bit of business with Mack these days with the River Battles and the Mack coaster at Dollywood. It's something that fits the trend of being a first or at the beginning of type of ride that seems to be HFE's M-O on new major rides. I wonder if they have a gravity version and one that would allow free spin.

When I saw this I thought of dark ride or hybrid of dark/outside for the area that'sthe employee parking and shop area should the park move that and expand. A dark ride would certainly help shield 76.

You are right, it's a gerstlauer. Some reason I thought it was a Mack. Anyhow, still a neat concept to follow.

Without a doubt! It will be interesting to see which U.S. Park calls first dibs.
