    Lost Island Theme Park | Unknown | Kanonen relocation | 2022

    Oh my heavens! This park really is progressing quickly! I'm positive that we'll start seeing ride testing by the end of summer!

    Lost Island Theme Park | Unknown | Kanonen relocation | 2022

    This park is going to be a huge bucket list for me. If anything, just because I love the customer service of the company. I ordered a Lost Island sweatshirt from their website, and they sent it to me, handwrapped, with a park brochure and a handwritten thank you note.

    Yeah I am really loving the color schemes given the areas that they will be in. The SLC will be in an area that looks to have a windy/airy/beachside island sort of vibe to it with lots of bright colors. The park's drop tower will be in that area as well as the Gerstlauer Sky Fly, so I think that...

    Construction on the park is moving incredibly fast! Do you think they are trying to shoot for a late summer soft opening? I'd imagine the coasters would be complete by the middle of February. It looks like the flat rides are starting to go up as well.

    Anybody know of any recent developments in construction for the park? Any notable completions or anything?

    It appears that Rocket Racer will be the former Twisted Six attraction from Hydro Adventures in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. Multiple reports are saying that the ride will be used from Hydro Adventures. That park has been put up for sale, so this is not a good sign that Hydro Adventures will be...

    I just think that they would've capitalized on that if they were getting a slide like that. Something like that is incredibly marketable, and I'm sure they would've mentioned that in the announcement. I think it'll be just a basic racing slide.

    https://fb.watch/2BGJQuon-T/ Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. We have an announcement! We went from coaster or thrill ride, to water coaster, to....... A mat racing slide, and a pretty basic one at that. It'll definitely be fun and a hit among the families, but it just seemed a little...

    I think we were all hoping for a new thrill coaster. However, this is still great news. This is showing us that the park is ready to start investing more money into larger additions! A new water coaster or even some other large expansion with large slides to the waterpark will be loved by the...

    Ya know I had the itching feeling that the kiddie coaster was gonna be a Wacky Worm. But yeah that is a LOT of great progress! The fact that Kanonen has gone verticale, the kiddie coaster is complete, the SLC track is starting to arrive, and then the fact that multiple buildings are going...

    On one hand, I do feel like it would be the Gerstlauer Eurofighter, but something else tells me that it is a Premier Sky Rocket II. I mean Premier sent out a post about a mystery project on the same day that ASA started teasing their coaster. It looked to be two Sky Rocket II cars underneath a...

    I am actually super excited for this park. I know the two main coasters won't be anything huge or super different come opening year, but I actually love SLC's and I'm excited to try Kanonen; it certainly looks like it packs a punch! I'm just excited to see what stories will be told in each land...
