Tongue

Let me clarify. a Track Topper and not an IBOX track system. Track Topper is a wood coaster.

I could argue, but... meh.  For my money, Track Topper's still not a woodie.  Closer on the spectrum than IBox, but definitely divergent coaster evolution.  Not that it's a bad thing to have them, just hate seeing good woodies get recycled into them.

As that's true, they outsource most of their coasters. RMC does most if not all work in-house. Maybe an S&S Free Spin can happen since it uses RMC track, but I would rather have a full RMC creation.

Some woodies shouldn't be converted but most that have been have been very good candidates to take a so so ride and make an amazing ride out of it.

RMC does all the work inhouse, right down to the locking mechanisms of their trains. I'd rather have a RMC creation than a S&S 4D Free Spin.

However. IF I had to guess, it would have to be a woodie or invert as well. Perhaps in-house, but with Dal Freeman enjoying his retirement, there's nothing set in stone.

Dustin Allen, who worked on Cannibal, has taken over for Dal.

When 75%+ of S&S Coasters are Fabricated in China and/or Italy, I really don't see it on Lagoon's Radar. I mean, look at the structural problems with Wicked....And that came from the same factory that fabricates all of Intamin's Track and Trains and owns HUSS Park Attractions.

Maybe...just maybe... it won't be a coaster. At least in the traditional sense.

There are, for those following the various threads here, reports that Lagoon is building something big in the northern part of the park, scheduled for opening in or around 2020.  Now, while a part of me is hoping that it will be a roller coaster, another part of me hopes that Lagoon will (if not with this particular ride) look at other things besides roller coasters for future rides (although a non-traditional roller coaster is certainly cool, too! Happy )

I  completely agree with you. I really hope their next 'something big' is something other than a roller coaster.

Don't get your hopes too high... at least not 'til after 2020.
