Go check out the Vekoma section on the bottom. Looks like the right size and just zanny enough to be built. Any thougths?

I'm confused. What is BGW building for the 2005 season? Maybe I missed something?

I think you are talking about Pandora's Box... If so, I not for sure if someone would take a chance on it, but I still think it's pretty cool.

Well Kyle, the only thing that we can see so far that BGW is building is a HUGE building. Who knows what is going inside of it...

You can scroll down this page to see some of the construction pics of the building:


The Mole, I had the same idea when I saw those pics. Everything looks just about the right size for that.

If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.

Lord Gonchar's avatar Wow, that Pandora's Box system looks pretty cool. I think that could be very fun if done right.

Isn't BGW building a "Robocoaster Coaster" ?

Mamoosh's avatar Isn't the new Vekoma ride system still in prototype stage? If so then its doubtful that would be what is being used for BGW's ride system, which is probably already being constructed.

Wow!! How AWESOME would that be if they used this ride system for the "mystery" BGW attraction? I would definately make it to there next year. By the way, when will they FINALLY announce it? It's driving me crazy. lol.

I read that they were going to announce it during IAAP convention, but I also read Dec. 15th on another park related site.

Couldn't it just be a ride like the Scooby Doo's at Paramount Parks, or an Indoor Coaster like DT at CP or SM at WDW.

Man I abbreviate a lot. :) *** Edited 11/20/2004 9:35:05 PM UTC by Kyle Fobe***

Hey guys, I just did a little bit of digging.. and I came up with what I *guess* might be the story behind this attraction.

There was a wolf on the first teaser, and in German myths, there was a legendary creature named Fenris the Wolf. This wolf was so big that whenever it opened it's jaws they stretched from the Earth the the Heavens. But then, Fenris was punished by the gods, only to return until Ragnarok. Ragnarok is defined as " A time prophosied when the world shall be ripped apart and the gods shall die." Do you think this might be what the attraction is based on? Fenris is coming back, and "Ragnarok" is here, and somehow they are defeated in the end?

Just a thought.....

Mamoosh's avatar A ride based on myths? What's next, a coaster built around the creature who slayed Hercules? ;)

Why are we speculating? I can say with some confidence that it will be the biggest (warewolf themed, btw) Dip-N-Dots Resturaunt ever built.

I have confirmation. Wait and see.
