Weekly Rewind 5.12.12

WhiteWater West has created China's first Family Python water slide for Chime Long Waterpark, and released the photo at left.  Look at how amazing the lighting is inside the tubes!

Holiday World had a preview this week of Mammoth, the park's new hydromagnetic water coaster.  The ride looks like a lot of fun!  Perfect compliment to the park's other rides and slides.

Yeeeoow!  Skyrush at Hersheypark is testing, and boy does this one fly around the course.  Haven't seen a ride run this quick since Intimidator 305.  Cannot wait to ride!

California's Great America released another set of photos teasing the construction work they have going on.  It will be fun to watch the new wooden coaster go up this Summer!

Herschend Family Entertainment has filed a trademark for a new coaster named Outlaw.  Sounds perfect for Silver Dollar City, right?

Elitch Gardens is hard at work on their new water slide, named Tube Top.  The ride features a bright yellow and pink color scheme, sure to grab as much attention as the slide's name!

Sadly there really weren't many more details released as part of Universal Studios Japan's official Wizarding World announcement.  The park has a page for the expansion, but not much in the way of specifics!

Feel free to help out the Coney Island B&B Carousel with votes that would possibly help it win grant money.  You can vote one time each day!

Raging Waters, a part of the Morey's Piers family of parks, will debut their new River Adventure on Memorial Day weekend.  The highly renovated lazy river now features all new scenery, rockwork, and additional theming.
