This should be talked about more than it is; the Lost Island Water Park in Waterloo, Iowa, are building a $100 million theme park next to it. Construction broke ground in 2019 and the park is due to open in 2022.

Two confirmed relocated coasters already in storage on-site are an Intamin Xcelerator from Sweden and an SLC from South Africa. (the latter will have new trains as the old ones are for sale)

So Kanonen and an SLC? Lame, why even bother?

I hope it gets canceled.

I loved Kanonen! This makes me happy to see, I'd hate to think they'd scrapped it.

It's interesting how Lost Island managed to snag up secondhand coasters here and there. Definitely not a *strong* line-up, but they could be a contender if they are able to deliver on their concept art and bring in guests.
