No biggie. They still have two full thrill rides from Astroworld sitting at their property. Until they go up, this is actually just little news.
I'd honestly prefer the old classic Tornado over this one... but hey, another waterpark attraction is nice considering their slide selection is rather limited.
Also, I know about the SLC, what *else* is on site from SFAW?
I don't think "teacups in tempest"... it's far from that. It's a dark ride using the old classic-cars type of ride through a set track with special effects including, of all things, a tornado (ala: Wizard of Oz) and other glow-in-the-dark effects. Was located in the Ghost-Town area and fit the theme so perfectly. It did need some repairs on some of the effects... and had low capacity, but damn... it was a fun nastalgic ride.
Upon reflection, the one (Wisdom Tornado) that I know of that's "close" to your area is Idlewild's Howler... go here, then on the lower-right: http://www.idlewild.com/hh.cfm

what's a tornado?
It's a weather disturbance usually in the form of a funnel that can propel people and things to far off places....like Kansas.
I won't go to GE 600 miles away for it. A wood coaster, Yeah but I got two tornados within five miles of the house.
Chuck, you may have two tornadoes within five miles of your house, but not everyone else does.
Why am I thinking Universal ripped off this concept... ;)
