I'm pretty excited for the speed slide. I really like Flow Riders, but they don't do much for me because your time is so limited on them, but overall this sounds like a GREAT addition to Hurricane Harbor.

Sounds like a nice addition. I do hope that the flow rider is at least a double. The capacity on them is just so low.

I'm looking forward to wiping out in spectacular fashion on one of the flow riders. I love those things! Had my first experience with one on a cruise ship, and have been a fan ever since.

Will they have the people with towels on standby to guard against frequent depantsing, as they do at Hersheypark?

As long as they don't let the costumed mascots do it, because lord knows we don't need more "gropings" going on.

So where is the expansion happening? I assume they are going to take over some more of the parking lot.

That was something that the park did not mention. But with some creativity they really dont have to physically expand the waterpark.

The expansion is going in the place of where Space Shuttle America was along with the huge space in that area near the go-kart tracks. I don't think any parking lot will be used. Chang was originally going to go in that space along with some parking lot.

cool but will it really draw alot of guests? I think putting in trees would be better for six flags :)
