    Well this looks dull. Though not as dull as the Thirteen plans...

    The long awaited Mack family coaster?

    The park needs a like for like replacement for the flume in term of its target audience - a ride for all of the family. A compact wooden coaster, or something similar, with a low height restriction, would be great. I'm not clamoring for another water ride. A coaster seems most sensible.

    Looking very roughly at the plans - high point of the ride is 201m above sea level. The first drop ends at 185m above sea level - so a 15m drop. Not bad :)

    Looks like a layout for a wooden coaster.

    It would be nice to see a good coaster built and marketed as a new ride, although this will of course have a world's first title. If they have to advertise it as 'the worlds first ride fully dedicated to Mutiny Bay' I'm sure they would.

    Worlds first wooden coaster that sucks.

    Worlds first wooden coaster that might as well be steel.

    I can't see it being a wooden coaster, there's no transfer section for a second train. I'm going Mack family like Pegasus which has the lift transfer system. I also believe if it was a wooden coaster Towers would go all out on it and this seems a little small.

    If anyone wants to know where the plan sits in relation to the area.

    Good to see something happening. Doesn't look to be on the epic scale we were hoping for, but I think we need to see the side elevation plans to understand it.

    Looks like a GG to me.

    The multiple lines are interesting. I wonder if it could follow a single track that takes the same path shown on the overhead perspective, but with different drops, etc on the side perspective.

    This would increase the length dramatically. When AT did the market research I seem to recall they found that the public wanted a longer ride experience, hence the smiler is 3 minutes.

    It doesn't look to make the most of what is potentially a large area, but I hope to be amazed.

    Looking at that scale it looks like a fairly substantial ride. Think about it, if it's a woodie we are not looking at breakneck speeds. With a pre show, it may make the ride comparable to the 3mins on the smiler.

    Sure this is physically bigger than what some people are thinking.

    EDIT: Maybe not actually if that overlay above is close to accurate! Was really expecting this to virtually encroach on Forbidden Valley. Maybe they've been deceptive as long as they don't breach GDO (yes, I'm hoping).

    The site is significantly bigger than The Smiler's. I know that's relatively 'small', but this probably isn't quite as small as what I was expecting.

    If you squint, you can see on the lift it says "lift slope 24 degrees". Am I right in thinking this is relatively shallow, implying wood?

    The site is about double the size of The Smiler's site.

    It may not look much but it covers a huge area (makes far better use of the space than The Flume ever did). This is a large scale project.

    There's a suspiciously straight section in the middle of the plan, could that be a barrel roll or something similar?

    Probably a simple question, but what's a "deer wall"?

    Still looking forwards to this even if the layout isn't what some people expected. And to those thinking it might not be a gimmick, look at tower's last few investments ;). I'm not geeky enough t be able to say this will be a good/boring coaster by the layout, but I can definitely see a woodie having that layout. Could be decent.

    It has a slight bow to it too. If you have a closer look
