Zambezi Zinger (WOF)


So let's get the disappointing part out of the way first, the ride is still not open.  With that being said, there's plenty to be excited about with this new ride.  For instance, check out how amazing this marquee looks.

The queue house is full of rich detailing

The fact that this is at Worlds of Fun and not say a Busch Gardens or even Animal Kingdom cannot not be stressed enough

This is the outdoor queue area.  Notice how there is already shade awnings and a good amount of trees already.  Not an open cement waste land of cattle gates

The train is actually there in the station.  I notice that the headlights are not currently installed on the zero car.

Thanks to the train being back in operation, we can get some amazing new shots of the ride

There's the train peeking out from the station

Here is the entrance area to the load station.  One side of the stairs is Fast Lane, the other is general stand by boarding

Here's the other side of the train tracks and the back half of the ride.  Can I just commend the park on theming the tunnel. They didn't have to do it, but the fact that they did means that they are finally understanding that doing the little things makes all of the difference

Air time hill after the tunnel

Even in person, it is still hard to believe how these curves hug the ground

Coming around the corner you can see the first portion of the ride

Here's where the ride jumps the train tracks

I honestly think that this is going to be the sleeper hit of 2023
