    I agree, it's a brilliant looking layout full of airtime. And here is some drone footage of the construction site:

    Kings Dominion have posted the following photo showing how the first drop has transformed from how it was on Hurler to how it will be on Twisted Timbers:

    Some new drone footage showing off Twisted Timbers:



    It also appears that Ricochet is being painted green for the new season.

    In news slightly away from Twisted Timbers, Kings Dominion have announced that both Ricochet and Rebel Yell will be re-named for the upcoming season; they will be called Apple Zapple and Racer 75 respectively.

    Renaming Rebel Yell does not seem to have gone down well with some fans!

    Anyway, I'll end this post with a lovely photo posted by RMC:

    I just realised something about Apple Zapple! As it is being repainted green, it is now... a big green track! That's made by Mack! A big green track! *starts singing Big Green Track from TPW's Europa Park vlogs*

    I didn't realise the name Rebel Yell was associated with the confederates until now. Makes sense to change the name, but I'm sure the moaners are out in force.

    I like how the park desperately attempted to circumnavigate the criticism of renaming Rebel Yell by applying an old-fashioned, red, white and blue aesthetic to the new name that resembles a cool, all-American cars. It has quite an interesting history, although I can totally understand why they got rid of it.

    Neither did I! Might offer some insight into why they changed it!
