I heard today that SFGA is getting a tornado waterslide next year.

screamscape. I wouldn't bet my life on it, but their sources for next years additions are usually on the money.

Finally, HH gets something new. Everything in that park has been there since it first opened. The parks been an expirement for the past 10 years and now their giving it something they know can draw a crowd.
The one thing that I want to know is where are they gonna put it?
- Tearing down one of the slides
- Or putting It next to the giant raft ride where they have a little clearance if trees.

Everything in Hurricane Harbor is better than a tornado slide. There's plenty of room to expand in HH.
Prepare to weather the storm!

Even if we are to get a Tornado, what would come after it? A Water Coaster like in Texas? I would actually like to see a nice dark out raft ride like Malibu Pipeline in Water Country USA. And Nitro Racers are definitely a necessity over a Tornado slide. Or even just revamp the lazy river to be an adventure river would be perfectly fine.

Tornados are simply the in thing and therefore very marketable. But like others have mentioned, the park needs more. Especially more high capacity slides.

They have until Memorial Weekend to get this done. Being that it only takes 1-2 months to build, why work now in the dead of winter?
