What about Oceanus?

Is the number of passengers reported in the log important to what the announcement will be?

Day 15:

"We count one hundred plus two passengers on board."

102 foot tall coaster? Please, no. I want something bigger.

Bigger isn't always better.

Exception for Maverick.

BB7, hoping Holiday World gets a launched Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter.

Because no park anywhere ever engaged in misdirection during the tease stage.

Of course.

I really hope this doesn't come to fruition. Low capacity + coasters that track poorly + inevitable downtime = no bueno.

On a sidenote, are there any other good clues besides the B&M coaster footing pattern we saw when the shredded paper in the media boxes was reassembled? 66 days seems like a lot of work and a lot of filler to throw in for an announcement that may be setting some people up for anticipointment.

So Episode 5 of their Hard Hat Chronicles has something very interesting. If you watch this video all the way to the end, past the bloopers, you get a glimpse of what I assume is the construction site for the 2015 project:

Now what could require them to excavate an area like that? Hmmmmmmm............

That bold Sentence makes me feel like it will be a B&M, With no sand in the track, Hence "Wailing" And "Covering there ears"

If HW did get a B&M I'd vouch for roaring levels of Raptor or Banshee rather than rides like Mantis.

It's hard for me to carry a conversation even a good 100 yards away when it comes from Mantis.

I should also point out that this entry is historically accurate. See: http://mayflowerhistory.com/hopkins-oceanus/

I haven't been following along all that closely, but from what I've read here, I honestly wouldn't take anything they've said as a clue to the new ride yet. So far most of what's been mentioned has been based on actual facts about the real Mayflower (102 passengers, 66 days at sea, etc.). Some things may be hints, but nothing I've seen so far seems obvious.

Anybody still keeping up with this? Day 20 is interesting, to say the least.

I check the website as soon as I wake up in the morning to see the clue then check here for speculation but no one is talking so. The drawing on day 24 had my very interested.

The only thing I can really think of is more along the lines of these days not being information teasers on the new ride but more like a voyage through the park leading up to the announcement and how they got to this point in history. If that makes sense.

The speculation on TPR has been very in depth.

I had to start reading there because what little speculation we get keeps getting.. well, diverted.

So... a B&M Stand-Up? :P

It seems to me that there is a lot of conversation about clouds and skies. What that means is a mystery to me, but I feel like they are mentioning the clouds quite often.

I've avoided speculating myself so far, but I can no longer avoid it. Today's entry has me convinced that this has something to do with a wooden coaster. It could be an overhaul of Voyage, or a all-new fourth woodie. I'm leaning toward the latter myself.

From what I've been reading the footers point to a steel coaster of some sort and it will interact with Voyage by crossing it.

True.. but a fourth coaster as intense as their other coasters would still be awesome. XD

I feel that it could be another water coaster.


Hyena falls is over in that area and it would seem odd that they planned those slides there when they were gonna expand the dry park in the Thanksgiving area.

I have a feeling this is going to be a Mack coaster. Enough to be intense for enthusiasts but calm enough for younger kids to ride. I am also starting to think that the released blueprint of the footers (If they are from the actual ride being built and not smoke and mirrors) shows the first inversion that will be built in HW.

Yeah I didn't really think too much into that picture. I saw people speculating the splash down but for me it just looks like the way the wood flows with whatever filter is used for the picture.
