History[edit | edit source]

In October 2016, the park announced that it would be building a hyper roller coaster, planned to open in 2018.

The name of the coaster was revealed to be Hyperion on October 15, 2017 through the park's Facebook page. Later that month, concept art was released revealing Hyperion's sci-fi theme.

The track was completed by the end of May.[3] The first test run was completed on June 28, 2018.[4]
