Technically they teased a revamped Gwazi. While RMC is def a contender, we can also see another ghostrider situation . . .

They were being pretty blunt when they said they would be revamping Gwazi into a new attraction. I can't see them keeping it a traditional wooden coaster considering that's pretty much the reason it's SBNO.

They also said they wanted to make today's announcement a "hybrid" announcement and described Gwazi as being a "rocky" attraction. Those phrases by themselves are pretty ambiguous, but when put into context, they're pretty on-the-nose.

From the area rendering at the top, it appears that at least 2 of the flats are just going to be rethemed and put in the area. The coaster shown also looks like the Fiesta Express coaster the park removed in 2011 and has been in storage. It will be called Swampwater Snake: https://rcdb.com/16612.htm

Firehawk's salvageable parts should be making their way to Carowinds by the end of the year. ;)
It's crazy how many people on FB & Youtube were dead set on it going to Kentucky Kingdom. Silly people...lol

It looks really exciting. I wanted to get to Hersheypark this year, I may finally go next year because of this expansion. This is what the park needed, and their lineup just got so much better.

You mean 2020? you go there next year you're just gonna ride a revamp dark ride.

Yes, whoops. I edited my initial post and posted in the 2020 speculation and announcement thread instead.

Yes, it's being marketed as a dueling coaster.

Get Ready to Ride the Tide!
Coming in May 2019- Feel the thrill of this unique dueling roller coaster ride featuring high-speed turns and upside-down twists.

Introducing Tidal Twister, an all-new dueling roller coaster, which will make its debut as a new attraction at SeaWorld San Diego in 2019. The first of its kind in the world, this unique ride is an exhilarating experience that demonstrates the power of the ocean.

Accelerating to 30 mph, riders will twist and bank as if they are riding the tide along a tight figure-8 track that includes dynamic Zero-G roll at the center section.

Two trains, holding 16 passengers each, load at opposite ends of the figure-8 and cross in the center with guests facing both forward and backward on the trains. A lower-height requirement (48") makes this a perfect ride for younger guests and families.
