Project 2016!

Postby mdc1271 » 24 May 2015, 12:51

I figured we should set up a proper area, Where we can discuss what might be happening for 2016, rather than mention other rides, and attractions.
I have be doing some thinking- Here are my thoughts- A new coaster to be built on Skyriders plot of land, that would pass behind Splashworks, and then run along side Behemoth and turnaround at the top of Minbusters lift hill, and back toward the station via the same route. This all makes sense, as flags are scattered all over, even the ones by the basketball game by Minebuster. Footers can go pretty much anywhere. There is obviously a lot of speculation with the different coloured flags, and the possible fate of other rides. So much can happen in the next 3 years. I know we are all hoping for the best, and the biggest coaster ever, but we also need to be realistic. It's also still really early too in the season to speculate, but if they can clear what needs to be cleared, footers can be poured very quickly.
Here are my reasons why- It makes good use of space, without taking down tree's in the WWC area, maybe a few. There is still a lot of space along side Behemoth for something like a coaster. This also leaves the Vortex hill for Fireworks for now. I truly believe that Kingswood will be removed in the next 5 years to make way for another huge expansion of the park. The Kingswood area serves no real purpose, other than a few venues, and Haunt, which could be moved to Showplace if they upgraded that theatre to actual seating, and made it bigger.
Just my thoughts!

Here is another angle of the work being done around MB. Also, whatever dirt was near the turnaround of Behemoth has been patched with grass.

Here's what I honestly think is taking Skyriders spot= BBQ & Brew/ picnic facility with nice gardens.

I think the station for this 2017 coaster is located near Minebuster.

So I went back to some forums from early in the 2011 season and at this point at that time there wasn't much in terms of construction for leviathan. Alot of the simliar sightings; dirt being moved around, red flags, there was even talk of a sprinkler system being placed in that area. One thing I did find interesting was that the red flags that would be for leviathan were in the location the lift hill is now.

Everyone hold your horses I think it's gunna be a big one again. Just cause they haven't started footers yet doesn't mean it cant be for 2016.

Also. Footer construction didn't start till about mid July.
There was a portion of work (Mostly placing flags and clearing land) done by wonderland in Juneish and then there was no activity in the area for about 2-3 weeks near Canadas Day 2011 and then Footers started coming and being installed.

Still a long ways away but I honestly think it's for 2016. Can't wait it sounds exciting. Hoping it goes into the Wild Water Canyon forest area.

So for the first time in forever Cedar Fair is going to build 2 massive coasters at two different parks? I just got back from the park and construction is done. No more people on site, no activity. Trust me when I say Skyriders spot is going to be a BBQ & Brew! It's scenic like the one at Cedar Point and it would be well received by guests. You'll see a thrill ride with this, and our next big coaster in 2017. Remember even though cheap we did just recently get a "coaster"

Also he/ she is right rumor has it we should hear something very shortly pertaining to future addition. I'm not sure ifs pertaining to 2016 or 2017 but I did hear some information should be made available soon. (again this is a rumor)

Forgive me if I'm unable to take you seriously, considering you were the only one consistently denying our all-but-confirmed incoming giga coaster until it was formally announced.
