Oaks Amusement Park is a small park in Portland Oregon and they have started a naming contest for their new coaster that will replace their Pinfari looper. Based on the photo in the contest and the stats given it seems to be a Gerstlauer Eurofighter 320 which is the same model as Hydrus at Casino Pier.

Here is the link to the naming contest that runs through December.

And here is a POV of Hydrus of which this ride will be a clone of.

Hoping for a really cool name that will go well with the ride intensity! :D

Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

It's funny to see how small it actually is. Especially after so many huge new rides.

But more importantly, it's better than the Pinfari looper it replaces.

Anyways, here are some more construction pictures from TPR:

We also have the trains now onsite, although still unwrapped. Looks like it's going to be using the lap bar system found on Hydrus, Iron Shark and Krater:

...and finally some images of the now dismantled pinfari looper lying around the park:

The ride is going to have a cool lighting package from KCL Engineering. The same guys who did Monster at Adventureland and the yet-to-be-opened Hangtime at Knott's Berry Farm. Here's is some images of the package being tested out:
