I haven't seen anything after doing several site searches, but I was on my way to work the other day (Hard Rock Hotel) and I saw massive enclosed tubing in the parking lot. It was dark blue, and I saw a piece that had a dip in it, and a few curved pieces standing straight up. It looked like another family tube ride, because this track was very large, but does anyone know what this might be, and where it might be going?
sorry, should have put a question mark at the end of the title :) *** Edited 1/11/2005 8:56:25 PM UTC by Turbo***

It's a new attraction called Disco H2O.

I think I have an idea as to what it is. A company called Proslide (proslide.com) manufactures a new ride called a behemothBOWL. The very first (and only one, currently) one is at Golfland Sunsplash Roseville (roseville.golfland.com) and is called Storm Rider. I went on it during a class field trip an it was an interesting ride. It's basically a giant proslide bowl ride which uses four-seated cloverleaf tubes. However, I've heard that this ride Disco H2O will have a covered bowl section featuring music and flashing lights in the dark! Sounds interesting (pun intended). Oh yea, first post, yae!

That's great. Click the 2nd photo down... apparently they forgot what their site's name is.
They link to a photo at norcalcoasters.com, which has been picked up by a cyber squatter. Clicking any of the other photos, or the link below the photo, works fine, though.
