What's that blue tarp looking structure on Millenium Island?

Troika looks like the spawn of Gemini's Station

The Blue tarp: a covered up footer for the new secret 500 foot coaster (just like TTD's footer earlier this year, only bigger)

Lol....funny funny funny...

Anywho, I like the trioka colors actually, and think it fits the area well...but I'll have to see it person. I can't wait to see Wildcat in person either, that ought to be interesting.

It's a footer for the 500' rotating McDonalds.

Wouldn't that be funny if they did a footer just for the fact to make us speculate??

Just out of curiosity, what exactly is the difference between Trioka and Monster? From what I've seen, they both basically do the same thing.

My theory on the blue tarp on Millennium Island: It's the compost pile for all the new landscaping to be done for TTD. ;)

Actually, Blast, Monster has arms that go up and down throughout the ride and the cars spin individually.

With Troika, the cars do not spin, but the "wheel" they are attached to spins as the arms lift the wheels.

There was also an update on the 31st if no one noticed. Also, the picture of Troika shows the answer to a rumor of earlier about Wicked Twister have added main supports for the towers in 2003.

Thanks, CPLady. I hadn't actually seen either of them in action, so I wasn't sure.

Is Troika the same as Shake Rattle and Roll at PKI?

Troika looks very cool now. I wish SFGAm would repaint Triple Play like that or some outragous colors.

Hey now... don't mess with Triple Play's 1960's retro orange and white paint job!

The new colors on Troika Troika Troika look interesting if not weird (guess we'll get used to it eventually). That is a location that sorely needed something besides a vast area of concrete - I'm glad they moved the ride there!

Den, Troika is the same as Shake, Rattle, and Roll at PKI.

I am so happy that one of my all time favorite flat rides doesn't look like a rotating "Skittle" anymore. I hated those bright neon colors on the arms.

Whoa, troika looks great, and with chaos where scwab was that midway will now be bursting with colour, although it will make think of Kid Arthurs Court and the Fun House.

It could be a scene for Paddlewheel Excursions. Do they cover up the scenery? I believe they remove all of the characters and animals, so it could be a house or something.

Just speculation, but with all the building in the area of WT and DT, maybe DT will soon get a revamp? How much land is out through behind DT and the tower? Just a thought...

PS- I am in NO way saying that CP has a space problem, because they don't. Don't even start with me. :)

Whaddya mean CP has a space problem?! ;)

I think that's entirely plausible...I doubt that they'll be adding a coaster next year (but you never know...) - perhaps some "capital improvements" to DT will happen. Perhaps they'll make it an interactive ride?

Lord knows the thing goes slow enough, maybe they could turn it into some MIB-type shooter? That would be fun, but the targets would have to be bigger...
