Do we not already have a thread on this somewhere?
We do, and for now I'm inclined to leave it all wrapped up in once place. Once groundwork starts (IF groundwork starts), I'll move this thread over to the right forum.

Ooh, hoping they pull off some of the theming in that concept art. That volcano area in particular looks fab. Has anyone been able to place where in the park each of the images are located?
 
I think they may have picked up more than just Cobra from Ratanga Junction. That ship in front of cobra looks suspiciously similar in shape to the one that used to be at Ratanga. Maybe they went the route of buying several used rides to save on hardware costs.

Always nice to see coasters find a new home rather than facing the scrapyard.

So are the grey parts future expansion plans since you can clearly see another coaster here:

Looks like a new ride since I don't recognize the layout.
It seems like a mine train to me, given its somewhat sprawling layout with multiple straight sections representing a station and a few lift hills scattered throughout the course.

Worth noting several of those lines are contours marking changes in terrain not all part of a ride layout. The ride layout seen there isn't too long.

It's in my opinion just some place holder layout as with the rapids next to it shown to give an idea of future possible additions.

I would agree any other good roller coasters or flat rides on the free agent world market?

Not gonna lie, after lurking for a bit on this site, this park inspired me to create an account, the concept art for this park looks gorgeous! I really hope they follow through with it, it could be something special if so.

Screamscape also got some recent photos of the construction site and green track as well, though they seem to think its for the SLC:

Interesting considering the concept art also shows a green inverted roller coaster too:
