Raptor modification?

I know this is kind of reaching, but I have to wonder if something is going to be done with Raptor in the near future. I noticed a lot of Raptor in this year's Christmas video. It was in the background numerous times and from different angles. There were even moments inside where the operator would be. Not only that, but in one of the office shots, the 2016 Christmas video was playing and it happened to be the part where Tony was spinning around the pole in the midway fountain with Raptor in the background. One last thing I noticed was in the live video on December 11th. The rendering of the new Corral restaurant showed Raptor in the background, but the track layout was quite different. It looked like thie Cobra Roll was removed and the track extended quite a bit further than it currently does. It may be nothing at all, but kind of makes me wonder.

Yeah, you’re kind of reaching. A heck of a lot.

You're reaching for the stars. But not keeping your feet on the ground.

Many similarities to the 2009 Christmas video- the Raptor operator booth was shown in that video too

Conversion to a inverted standup makes the most sense.

Yeah, I can't imagine they'd do too much with it. It just seemed strange that it showed up so much. It's always fun to discuss things.

Not every social media drop is a clue or hint to whats going on with future plans. The christmas video has always been fun and quirky and most "hints" ever included in them was just trolling for this exact reason.

This may have been the biggest stretch ever.

Raptor is also very photogenic, right by the front of the park and in close proximity to where a lot of the offices are, so it’s easy to get everyone together for a quick shot. No need for a conspiracy.

Photogenic in a green shaft covered in bird crap sort of way.

Where it goes all the way upside down and holds you there for a few seconds, then takes you down to earth. I actually dreamed about this.

But with a Russian Roulette twist, on average 1 out of 6 rides results in them getting stuck requiring an evacuation. Eventually everyone will be able to smugly boast on SM about their evac experience and how cool it was. I predict immense popularity with long lines.

Along with some serious make-me-whole action.
