Blueprints for Dollywood's 2019 attractions.

The coaster depicted is apparently a Vekoma Suspended Family Coaster, and there are plans for some sort of pendulum attraction. There are also plans for an indoor play area.

This is looking like an upscale version of SDC’s Fireman’s Landing. The indoor play area sounds great, the one at SDC is amazing and fun for all ages. A bit bummed if the Vekoma suspended rumor is true, seems a bit plain for the park. Hoping it’s an original layout and not a clone of the one at Fun Spot.

Orkanen looks super fun. Other than the fact that Dollywood's coaster will be a clone, there's pretty much no reason to be disappointed (and even then, the two would be separated by an entire ocean).

I'd be happy to have one at Carowinds if we didn't already have that abomination Kiddy Hawk. Though I do wonder how much more enjoyable it would be with better restraints.

I could definitely see a full refurbishment of the Jungala area to include a Tempesto clone (if they merge part of the area that Tanganyika Tidal Wave sits on). The 3 attractions in Jungala (Tree Top Trails, Jungle Flyers and Wild Surge) were closed in January indefinitely with no reason given (likely financial, but it needs some refurb anyway). They did open them over spring break to help out with capacity (except Jungle Flyers). All signage for the attractions were gone. I was just there Saturday and could walk through there again. I expect it to be closed off again come Monday when the spring break crowds are gone. It still states on the park's website that those are closed. I guess it's a waiting game until some work is seen being done.

So at CoasterBash this weekend, Kennywood posted a hint about their 2019 addition. It said “what’s Not Next?” And has a pic of a Raptor, a T Rex, and a Hybrid car. Which leaves out only one remaining product for RMC to build (finally) in 2019.

Busch Gardens Tampa has filed a permit to demolish an attraction.....(it's not Gwazi)

Its: Tanganyika Tidal Wave



So I don't think RMC will be at BGT next year. Skyrocket II seems more definite with the land beside Jungala and Tiger themed trademarks. The permit also states that no buildings or trees will be removed. It's been so long since I actually went into the station area, but suppose it would work for a Tempesto clone. IT would definitely leave a lot of space free for some flats in that area (something BGT needs bad).

Jurassic World announced for 2019 at Universal Hollywood:

On this river-raft adventure, get doused as a colossal Mosasaursus dives for its great white shark snack. But the real danger lies ahead when the brutal Indominus rex escapes its enclosure. Be prepared when a 50-foot Tyrannosaurs rex comes to your rescue… right before your final plunge down a treacherous 84-foot waterfall.

Coaster Nation posted about a new coaster, very very different..... Its called a frequent faller? Looks like the ride on RCT.... Very unique ride, doesn't look to thrilling, but unique never the less!
