The third webisode takes a look at the queue-line, including a peek at the projection mapping element, as well as the ride's shop and surrounding area. It also features some testing footage.

It has been announced that Cobra's Curse will officially open next Friday (June 17th). Today's press release also included some photos of the finished queue-line and station.

So glad to hear it's receiving positive reviews, it looks a fun, solid family attraction and I look forward to experiencing it one day in the future.
Queue looks so well themed as well- love it :)

A couple of observations from my trip yesterday:

1. Cobra's Curse is a really fun family coaster, so much better than the likes of Maurer spinners.

2. It's really noticeable that the removal of Tidal Wave has put concerning stress on the rest of the park's water rides. I saw both the rapids and flume on 75 and 90 minutes respectively (it was a hot day to be fair) and although these looked exaggerated, they were by far the longest looking queues at the park (Montu didn't pass 15 minutes all day!)

Florida parks including Disney, Universal, SeaWorld & Busch Gardens have begun to provide free mosquito repellent to guests "out of an abundance of caution" as the Zika virus spreads.

Rumour suggests the original attraction set to open this year to replace Gwazi will open in 2018 or 2019. The reason this was pushed back is believed to be because SeaWorld parks wanted Mako to have a fighting chance, and to see how B&M coasters of the style would perform commercially. The new attraction is rumoured to one-up Mako in that it is expected to be a Giga coaster, meaning it will reach heights of at least 300ft. If the attraction is set to replace Gwazi - deconstruction is expected to begin in 2017.

Remember this is only rumour but seeing as this attraction was planned originally - I wouldn't be surprised if it becomes true!

I'd much rather see what RMC could do with Gwazi, but a giga would be a great addition also :)

I would also prefer to see what RMC could do to spruce up Gwazi, but would not be annoyed either if they added an airtime giga because this would also be a great fit for the park. Oh, and Cobra's Curse, from what I remember, was a great family ride. Busch Gardens hit the nail on the head with that family coaster.

Busch Gardens have closed Congo River Rapids for the foreseeable future in wake of the tragedy taken place at Dreamworld Australia. The ride will remain closed until they are certain it is safe to run.

It was already supposed to be closed for general work to take place until Dec 23rd anyway so hopefully any issues can be resolved by then.

Does anyone know who actually manufactured Dreamworld's Thunder River Rapids? I've looked around and cannot find anything, and Intamin have stated on their website that it wasn't them.

This company made the boats. I can't find the manufacturer for the ride system itself, perhaps it was built in-house or by some small, local company?
