Official Shockwave Topic

Re: Official Shockwave Topic
I don't think that Shockwave has a single bounce or shock that wasn't intentionally designed into the ride, vs. Anaconda which almost every bump isn't supposed to be there, especially the worst one.

Put up your hands and get slammed!

Just to remind people who were wondering about Shockwave's original colors...

Funny how in all my years going to the park shockwave was always black track/supports & yellow rails,I don't ever recall seeing it as royal blue.I heard on TPR that the possible new colors are green track with teal supports,I take it they're debutting KK's old trains from KI this season & they'll be keeping their original green color.

I'm thinking the same thing as well with the colors of dark green since the KK trains are still in the back behind FoF.

When I was diving by to look at I-305 I see that the loop is still the same color as it was before. So maybe they havent done the loop just yet.

Hopefully it will be yellow with poka dots :lol: JK

Caution! Venetians may strike at any time.

I'm surprised nobody in the last 3 days had tried to drive up to the park to get a glimpse of it... You can see the top of the lift hill from the Denny's Parking lot.

You can also see it from the 7-Eleven from across the street! Too bad I live 3 hours away or I would have totally been up there to check it out!

^Because they are employees, they are contractually obligated not to tell any of this nature to the public. Everyone will find out in time, it's really not going to hurt anyone not knowing the color(s) of the ride.
