  1. Yes, when they did their flats addition a few years back they got a Zephyr, a Top Scan, a Musik Express, and a Troika. Either a Top Scan or Musik Express would fit nicely in that Killmart spot. If money were no object, I'd probably put a Top Scan down by Shake, Rattle, and Roll and put the Musik Express where Killmart is.
  2. ^ Who knows if that even means anything but that would be a great spot for a flat. That spot is tailor made for a Musik Express.
  3. I've always wondered how much of the comparitive popularity of WWC and RFYLCB is due to the proximity to Soak City. I agree that Congo Falls would be much more popular if it were in Rivertown. Ideally KI would call up Whitewater West and put in something like Dollywood's Daredevil Falls which is a better themed KCKC.
  4. An Action Zone revamp is at the top of my list. Putting some more family flats in that area along with another flagship coaster in that area. I can't see Invertigo and Congo surviving another 10 years. I would also give Planet Snoopy the Camp Snoopy overlay and move the Flyers over by Backlot where the original Flyers were.
  5. I agree that they need to take a page out of Canada's Wonderland Frontier Canada section and take a few years and gradually build up that area. When I look at the whole area the only rides in the current Action Zone that I feel are not in danger of getting removed are Banshee, Delirium, and probably Drop Tower. I hope they are able to keep The Bat but from a chain standpoint if it comes to saving Vortex at Wonderland or saving The Bat (they are clones), they are going to save Vortex at CW because it is probably the fourth most popular ride there. I do think The Bat's ridership woul
  6. I agree that it is probably Racer retracking. It would make sense to finish the retracking and then go back to Racer's original paint scheme for the 50th.
  7. I was impressed by how quickly the Dark Knight coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure and Six Flags Great America seemed to roll thru the line. I would be happy with something like that in the TRTR spot.
  8. I would say Dollywood/Pigeon Forge and Silver Dollar City/Branson.
  9. At first glance I thought the PR team was in SWAT gear.
  10. ^ Yeah I know it was a prototype. I think the problems that Dollywood has had with Lightning Rod and some other parks have had with other RMCs may make chains think that they aren't worth the headaches even as great as their coasters are.
  11. Hopefully they can get it working consistently. At this point, I do think they need to look at a standard chain lift. For a coaster to be having this many problems 5 seasons in is crazy. For coasters like TTD it is a little more understandable because of the force of the launch and height. With Lightning Rod, I have noticed from being at the park the last couple of years that they seem to be promoting it less and less and not even having as much merchandise. For a ride that is supposed to be a headliner that is a little strange. I think that tells you that Dollywood has lost fai
  12. 2021: Action Zone retheme (A Dark Forest theme), Timberwolf removed, New Der Spinning Keggers and Musik Express on the former Timberwolf, relocated path to The Bat. 2022: 50th Anniversary Celebration, Planet Snoopy gets Camp Snoopy overall with a couple family rides and the return of a new Phantom Theater in place of Boo Blasters. 2023: Water park improvements. 2024: A Gerstlauer Infinity or B&M dive goes on the old Vortex plot. 2025: A Screamin' Swing is placed in Rivertown.
  13. ^ I rode Tempesto at BGW and it is a really good filler coaster. I do agree that it would be a great addition for Dorney or WOF.
  14. During their last quarterly conference call, CF said that they would announce their capital plans for 21 later in the year. It still would not surprise me to see some family flats come to KI. If you look at the success of the return of the Antiques and the Eagles it makes sense to think about adding more flats especially since family flats like the Keggers could run during Winterfest.
  15. With the success of Winterfest, fleshing out the park with more flats that can run during Winterfest would be a smart idea. Adding a new Der Spinning Keggers (Teacups) and a Musik Express to Action Zone or Oktoberfest would really add a lot to those respective areas. After they do that adding some additional family flats to a revamped Camp Snoopy overlay of Planet Snoopy would be great as well.
