Considering Ihu's breakaway falls just opened, it's most likely going to be Colossal Curl-esque. I just wonder where they are going to fit it...

Carl did say they were most likely going to duplicate Colossal Curl at other parks because of it's success.

Interesting, I haven't seen anything at AI lately. I do wonder where it's going to fit though....

There last attraction was a four lane mat racer in 2006 so its time for a thrilling family ride. Considering there's nothing like Collosal Curl in Flordia it will definitely give you a reason to make the drive to Tampa.

guys.....

TAMPA, Fla. – Adventure Island® guests are in for an epic journey on the park’s newest thrill ride Colossal Curl™, set to debut at Tampa Bay’s premier waterpark in 2015.
True to its name and holding up to four passengers, this mega slide delivers a high-adrenaline, action-packed adventure, making it the ultimate family thrill slide and adding to the waterpark’s unrivaled combination of corkscrews, waterfalls, high-speed thrills and tropical, tranquil surroundings for guests of all ages.
“We’re excited to continue in our tradition of offering thrilling rides, and slides, at Adventure Island and Busch Gardens® Tampa,” said Park President Jim Dean.
Colossal Curl™ will be located in the center of the park, next to Mango Joe’s Café®, and will take the place of Gulf Scream. The slide will be the tallest ride at Adventure Island at nearly 70 feet and 560 feet in length.
Construction on Colossal Curl™ will begin in the coming weeks and by early 2015 many of the ride’s features will be visible to guests as they arrive at the park.
Riders will hurtle high above Adventure Island’s 30 acres of water-drenched fun in the sun and experience a feeling of weightlessness aboard Colossal Curl™. This colorful slide combines funnel and wave elements for an exciting ride that’s sure to get hearts racing.
This is the first new attraction at the waterpark since 2006, and the ride is expected to open during the 2015 Adventure Island season, which begins March 2015.
Be the first to know about new events, special deals and future announcements by following the Busch Gardens’s blog at BuschGardensTampaBlog.com, or “like” the Adventure Island Facebook page and follow @buschgardens on Twitter.
Media contact is Busch Gardens Media Relations at 813-987-5090 or [email protected]

They let that out of the bag real quick... And as you can see some originality on the name...

I was expecting them to copy the ride, was not expecting them to reuse the name.

Is the chain so bad off that they can't afford new branding for the ride?!

And the fact that they couldn't even change the logo colors to match their color scheme for the ride

Well at least they're upfront about the fact that they are building something, unlike another park in the chain.
