Skyrider said:1.) Junior brought up his wishes for a densely wooded area. Sadly the planting plans show that very little existing foliage will be retained. In fact the proposed plan only has 4 - 6 oak trees planted and then shrubbery all around. The lack of trees, while not retaining the forested feel of the park, serves a point...

b.mac said:The fact that they're only replanting 4-6 Oak trees shows that WCusa really doesn't give a hoot about the forested feel anymore. They also seem to have abandoned the ideal of the park not being visible from outside, since this thing will be visible from the highway driving by.
Skyrider said:And b.mac, which highway will it be visible from? 64 is a ways away from the park property.
b.mac said:You are sorely mistaken if you think a small amount of trees will be removed for this ride and that 4-6 trees will cover the losses in due time. The footprint that this ride will occupy will remove a large amount of the buffer from the entrance walkway to Wild Thang, in fact it will be occupying some space where Atomic Breakers once stood. Here is an earthview of where the slide is going, do you see that blue tube in the woods? That's Wild Thang. With the current tree cover that ride is barely visible from where the Conservation Cove is, all those trees within a few feet of the lift hill and the tower will have to be removed, and considering what they did with Vanish Point they will remove those and quite a few more for posterity. You're talking more than 40 feet of trees being removed between Wild Thang and the main walkway.

Party Rocker said:This ride sounded cool, then I saw the plans. I'm not sure what makes it undesirable but there is just some feeling that I will not enjoy this addition. Not because I may or may not ride it, but because it just doesn't seem to attract me.
kingadam said:I completely agree. Although I plan on riding it when it opens, it just doesn't look like it will be very exciting. The slide looks really short and the Tornado 24 element seems way to small. Compared to the Tornado 60 at Great Wolf Lodge or KD, the Tornado 24 in the new attraction at WCUSA is tiny. The TornadoWAVE looks interesting, but I still think that this ride is going to be very underwhelming.
