In a surprise announcement today, Six Flags Fiesta Texas revealed their plans to build Wonder Woman Golden Lasso—the world's first single-rail coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction.
It's that time of year: Construction is in full swing, leaks and teasers are circulating at a breakneck pace, and amusement parks are set to reveal their new additions in a matter of days. This year, Cedar Fair is making their 2018 announcements on August 16th, which happens to be National Roller Coaster Day. At their first quarter earnings call, the chain confirmed that they will be adding four new roller coasters in 2018, and with the amount of development going on, we can expect a major addition to Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Knott's Berry Farm, and California's Great America.
As construction continues on RMC Hurler, Kings Dominion has begun posting intriguing teaser images on Twitter. So far, each graphic has featured a cryptic message, the outline of an image, and a collage of hidden words. Let's get to work and see what the park is hinting at for 2018.
The steel Rocky Mountain Construction transformation of Mean Streak is continuing to take shape at Cedar Point, and with the park now open, there's not much they can do to hide it. Instead, The Point has taken to posting short teaser videos on Twitter, revealing stunning new thrill elements and giving us clues to the new ride's theme.
