Considering that they're talking about a second 'Voyage' across the seas, if this is a steel coaster it's going to be absolutely ma-hassive.

This is a steel coaster as evident by the footer diagrams in the background.

They could get almost half of a Verbolten with that though!

It might seem that way but ever since they opened Voyage and their Thanksgiving section eight years ago at a cost of $13 million, their additions since have been fairly modest. Bakuli in 2007 cost $1.6 million, Kima Bay and park additions in 2008 cost $6 million, Pilgrims Plunge and park improvements in 2009 cost $8.4 million, Wildebeest in 2010 cost $8 million, Mammoth in 2012 cost $9 million, Hyena Falls and other expenses were $6.5 million in 2013, and they just spent $8 million for a new flat, new restaurant and park improvements for 2014.

Add to the fact that their attendance of million-plus visitors has increased every year since.

So it looks like they've properly budgeted for this new coaster.

This is the second most expensive announced addition for 2015 so far, only behind Carowinds' Giga-coaster that might be named Centurion.

Not sure if I'm buying that.  The footers lined up next to that building are awfully close.

   

Plus, they've been pretty cryptic with all the clues and this last one tries to be blatantly obvious. I think Paula is effing with us!
