A Tornado like they have a Camel Beach, also a water coaster! IMO the question is "What Don't We Need" not "What do we need"

I really hope we get one of those wave machines where you can actually surf or bodyboard the wave. I always wanted to do one of those.

I would also like to do a Tornado slide, I been to three different parks that had them and haven't been on one yet.

Anyone that knows me knows that there is really only one slide I want to see at HH:

The world is coming to an end, I've actually created a blog!

I think that a Tornado type of slide, like you guys have mentioned, would be a good addition.

I have yet to ride a water coaster, though, so that would be lots of fun.

I remember seeing a water coaster on some roller coaster and thrill ride show on the Travel Channel. I can't remember the name right now...

Water coaster, Tornado, and a wave machines are all great additions that should come to HH.  If HH got the attention it deserved, those would have probably been installed already.

One thing that I would love to see is a body slide that empties into a circular bowl with an opening in the middle about 10 feet above a pool.   I am not sure of the names of these, but I think it would make a great addition.

Also, a rope swing, lillypads (which about everywhere except HH has), and Shotgun Falls would be amazing to have for smaller children (and myself because I love all three).
Great Adventure...taking over the world one record at a time.

I'm actually thinking about hitting Typhoon Lagoon on my next WDW visit just because of their water coaster slide.  Usually, once I hit all of the main attractions I get bored but this one might be more re-ridable.  Actually, with the attendance spike TL saw after opening it, I'm surprised every water park hasn't installed one by now!

I think the water coaster belongs in GADv if your referring to the Intamin/Mack water coasters. If it isn't I don't know what you're talking about.

I'm thinking about hitting HH this summer for the 2nd time ever, first time since it first opened.

I haven't been to HH yet, I can't really say what they need and/or don't but a Tornado slide always seems to be a big hit with the crowds. I personally like racing slides where you lay on a mat, face forward, kind of like what Dorney just installed last year or Jungle Racers at Holiday World. Totally enclosed family raft rides are pretty fun too. Mater Blaster type rides are AWESOME, and any type of slide that can be incorporated with a lazy river would be pretty popular I bet.


Yeah, that sucks about Chiller...I hate to see it like that. Hey, so we should get a group picture or something ok. I'll call you later!

Well we know the slides have been painting but they could have a ride on those mats or a toilet bowl :D
