SkySled, a new ride vehicle to the skycoaster lineup, the first in 25 years. "The new SkySled places riders in a seated position for a completely new experience.
Upon hearing the familiar “3-2-1, Fly!”, the ripcord is pulled and the SkySled treats flyers to an exhilarating experience similar to jumping off a cliff or base jumping. The new visuals coupled with the amazing freefall and swing experience offer a completely new thrill on an established attraction."

Dynamic Attractions All Terrain Dark Ride:

I wonder if they will enclose the first small drop/inversion or not. It's nice to keep those as a secret.
