It is implemented poorly which is the main problem, they designated I guess a separate line at the stairs which I'm sure made it difficult for the Flashpass users since it probably looked like cutting to non Flashpass users.

With a 3 slide tower at White Water, 1 slide was for Flashpass only. So unless you had Flashpass you can't use that slide. The first problem with that is if you liked that slide previously, now you can't use it unless you pay extra for Flashpass. Even if no one from Flashpass is using the slide non Flashpass users were not allowed to use that slide. So it makes the standby line much longer than necessary. For the Flashpass users, they couldn't use the other 2 slides unless they waited in the standby line so it's messed up for both Flashpass and non Flashpass users.

They really need to come up with a merge point so a non Flashpass user is allowed to go to any slide they want.

Exciting! I agree about surprises. Its nice to have little things revealed as the off season goes on. *Starts thinking process even though i have no idea.*



Edit:
Could it be a BowlingALLEY ? I don't think it looks that exciting though, the bowls are taken slow.

Or possibly a tornado wave even though we already have the tornado? I'm just researching as we speak hahaha

Whatever it is, I'm sure Proslide has something to do with it. I have a feeling it's some sort of body slide but it would have to one hell of a slide in order to be a "US First".

Seaworld San Antonio's Aquatica will be getting a TornadoWave so I don't think it will be that. A Bowling Alley may be possible but I don't think so. I have no idea what this could be. Unless it's not from ProSlide...

This just also popped into my head-Maybe a looping slide that instead of after the loop continuing straight into the splash zone, it continues to turn and you enter a bowl and drop into a pool? I honestly don't know anymore but I'm excited to find out.

Sounds like an aqualoop to me....hasn't that not been added in any US park yet? Definitly gotta look at international parks and see what they have thats not in the US cause they specifically said "First in the US" for a reason. I don't see whats special about the bowling alley.....it just looks like a longer version of our big slide....

Scorpions Tail at Noah's Ark and RipTide Bay at Great America both have AquaLoops so that can't be it. This is really going to be a surprise!

This is exciting! So I guess when the park's Facebook page said that they had some more surprises for us during the off-season, they weren't just talking about free give-aways!
