On channel 12 (Cincinnati) Jennifer Bowers of PKI said that the new ride was a prototype and that it was an exteme, and thrilling ride. After today`s anouncement, the only thing that has really been confirmed is the name, location and the fact that the new ride will be located in a building. Jeff said that this ride will be the most costly in the park`s history, which means it is more expensive than the parks previous most expensive ride (Son of Beast at around $15 million) If anything, this anouncement from PKI promises that Tombe Raider: The Ride will be big but leaves many un answered questions. Anyone know more about this, hopefully spectacular ride?
I`ve riden Son of Beast 38 times!

i could see TR being a tilt coaster. Climb up to icy staglagtites, then a tilt to be face to face with boiling lava. The one in japan is kinda short and could very well be installed in a building.

Didn't she say it was also not a coaster? If so, this is one expensive thrill ride...

Carr76013...when I was there we were trying to fingure out what COULD it be and i mentioned a tilt but after we thought about it it didn't seem like they could easly them it to TR, and ti didn't seem like it would fit in well.

First thing i thought when i heard PKI was announcing TR was "Oh my God... they are adjusting the theme on Adventure Express."
Im glad they decided to build a new ride instead. :)
