Paramount’s Carowinds announces the new Boomerang Bay water park. The multi-million dollar Australian-themed water park adds three new attractions and expands to become nearly 25 percent larger.

I'm sure it will be insanely popular, the marketing will be over-the-top, and Paramount will have another great year, but the lack of new attractions is semi-disappointing. I'd have at least one star thrill attraction such as a water coaster or the toilet bowl like PKI did with their opening of Boomerang Bay and the Tornado slide. I wish they'd slowly add a couple new slides every year or two at PKI. I really like what Holiday World does with their additions and what Dollywood is doing for '06 with the new slide and Topple Tower. PKI and Paramount have generally been really good about doing a little something for everyone, so I'm really not complaining at all. =p

This is going to be a great expansion, but it would have been nice to replace the Frenzoid with a giant Frisbee as well, or at least a new non-inverting swinging ship
