    Zumanjaro is scheduled to open in 2014.

    Its three, 41-story towers will be built on the face of the roller coaster. Each tower will feature a gondola for eight riders.

    Meanwhile, the park says this is the last season for its wooden Rolling Thunder roller coaster. The park says technology has surpassed the dual track coaster, which opened in 1979.
