    I just realized that they have taken out that attraction at Discovery Kingdom. That was short lived!
    lol yeah very short lived. Still haven't managed to ride the new coaster either but I heard it was great/short.

    I agree. I always loved that sharp dip. We'd skip it sometimes but I thought the ride was still pretty fun when I rode it.


    Very excited for this new coaster though.

    Can't say I'll miss the Hurricane, didn't even bother with a "last ride" yesterday. I remember when it open they had problems that led to it being toned down a bit as was the case with Mulholland Madness/Goofy's Puke Pile. Got TWO rings in the clown's mouth on a single carrousel ride, though.

    I was working the walk back when it was the Jetstar. Hurricane was an impressive upgrade at the time. I think Hurrican was designed by the same German group mentioned in the PR. From the video I figured the Hurricane was just going to be retrofitted, but I guess it'll be a whole new track layout.

    I am lucky that I live 30 min from there but {gasp} haven't been there in a good 5-7 years because the only thing have going is the Big Dipper and the Free Concerts. And after they revamped Cave Train it lost all it's charm.

    I love their new Haunted dark ride, but this one I'll have to skip or I'll be puking 360 degrees off the sides of this ride.

    Looks like fun. I loved riding the Hurricane when I was younger. A big part of its appeal was its location.

    No.
    It's actually the same ride as Crush's Coaster in Paris minus the darkride portion.
