Re: 2017 Announcement?

Curious they didn't talk Wonderland into buying the floorless/newer version, the Diablo... From what I can tell, the Inferno has a capacity of 38 per cycle compared to the Diablo's 24. Seems like a smart decision on Wonderland's part! Besides, I think you should be able to see more/better on the In...

Re: 2017 Announcement?

Awesome additions! Still confused as to why it took the park so long to announce, but who cares? The ride will likely still be up at the same time as if it was announced a week ago and there's not much to look into. Curious where both the slides and Soaring Timbers will be located, exactly. Hopefull...

Re: WinterFest???

Just a quick clarification: California's Great America is starting WinterFest this year (2016). While I would love to see WinterFest at Wonderland one day, I doubt we'll be getting it next year. They're still testing the waters with WinterFest in different climates and Wonderland's waters are frozen...

Re: Worlds of Fun - Kansas City, MO

Honestly, I want so badly for this to be our announcement... Minus the WinterFest. Let other parks test those waters a little more first. ;) I really would love a Troika and a Condor at the park, and we certainly have the land for them! 8)

Re: Valleyfair!

I guess all the bad press associated with WindSeeker's turned the company off of getting another one. Still, so many parks getting such great additions, really filling out their respective rosters!

That Eiffel Tower will look absolutely beautiful next winter! Hopefully the event goes over well in the more Northern climate!

Re: Carowinds - Charlotte, NC

Great additions for next year! Looks like a great new/refurbished section for the park! Having said that, I'm not particularly fond of any of these names... Electro-Spin? Rock 'N' Roller? Do-Si-Do? Not my cup of tea, but I guess whatever works for them! The Flying Cobras seems a bit too awkward to s...

Re: Cedar Point - Sandusky, OH

Long overdue, but it's a little sad they had to take out their go karts and Skyscraper for this. I like the new name and the extra emphasis on opening up all parts of the park to the beach (sight-lines or otherwise). Interesting no news about Mean Streak today... Could it sit abandoned for a year li...

Re: California's Great America - Santa Clara, CA

Makes sense, and not unexpected as it was rumoured since Mantis turned into Rougarou. Sad to see another stand-up go, but happy to see the park putting some TLC into this classic coaster!

Re: 2017 Announcement?

Four Cedar Fair parks have said their announcement will be on the 18th (Cedar Point, Dorney Park, Carowinds, and Worlds of Fun), one has said their announcement will be on the 20th (Kings Dominion), two have said it will be "Mid-August" (Kings Island's second announcement and Valleyfair), and four h...

Re: Kings Island - Mason, OH

Looks like a fantastic addition! I'm very curious as to what it'll look like inside the shed at the end of the ride... Hopefully we get something similar in the next few years in our back woods! Now that we've seen Cedar Fair build over a river rapids ride, we know it's possible and I truly believe ...

Re: 2016 Events and Live Entertainment

Does anybody know if they will produce a new starlight this year. the last show lasted 3 years so do you think they will produce a new one ??? I saw most of the show yesterday. It's basically a rehash of the previous shows, but combined in a new order. I missed the very beginning of it, but I reall...

Re: Action Theatre Future???

It would be fun for Action Theatre in Wonderland to have SimCity, The Sims, or Need for Speed theming. How would The SIms work? Isn't it creating your own world with your own characters without any defined goals? I don't see how that translates to an eighty-person audience viewing or interacting wi...

Re: Brew and BBQ Fest Trip Report Jun 25th, 2016

Interesting experience! I went, but unfortunately I haven't been feeling very well the past while, so it was just to look around. They used this same area for the Food Truck Festival last year, so I wasn't surprised. I think they want it in a high-traffic area so people can pass through and be inspi...

KidZville Future?

So with the new names of some of the rides in KidZville and the apparent focus on “Canadiana,” I thought it would be fun to guess at what the rest of the KidZville rides could be named! First of all, it seems like they might go with renaming the area “Maple Park,” but I could also see them going wit...
