My real excitement lies with Gringotts. Can't wait to get more info on this ride!
Although Cabana Bay does not have Unlimited Express, it does offer early entry to HP. The three current hotels have a total of 2400 rooms, and Cabana Bay adds another 1800.
This will definitely cause some issues. By the time the gates open for off-site guests, the wait times could be astounding for them, considering there is the possibility of around 16000 guests already in the parks.
Forbidden Journey can usually operate at around 2800-2900 guests per hour and if Gringotts is similar to the Mummy with it's loading style, I would estimate around 2000 /hr.
Basically, the wait times for Gringotts, or just being able to enter the new land, are going to be horrendous...
No theme park for me next year, with the World Cup at home I will stay in Brazil during my vacation period.
But if I have a business trip to Europe in the second semester I could drop by DSP.
And while I won't make it to Canada anytime soon, I am very intrigued to see Cedar Fair and Matt Ouimet's take on the dark ride genre. The future of this type of attraction at the smaller regional parks could very well hinge on how Wonder Mountain's Guardian is received. I naively hope for the best.
Sorry about the double post. I can't log onto the site at work for some reason, and I didn't realize the post went up anonymously. But thanks for readin twice, if you did...
Of course Falcon's Fury will be a great addition, but all of the news has completely glossed over the fact the Timbuktu area is being redone. This is an area in desperate need of an overhaul, and has remained essentially unchanged for years other than some more vibrant paint colors. Based on the video you posted in this article, I hope they plan to do some cool new updates that really reinvigorate this section of the park.
