  1. Work going on behind the Freestyle location today.
  2. I do like the points total idea. I also like the idea of incentivizing park purchases such as merchandise. The BOGO Cotton Candy is nice but I'd rather have something like a 20% off coupon on merch.
  3. I completely agree, it will be interesting to see what else could come back. I could definitely see a reimagined Phantom Theater coming back. As far as the other flats historically in the park, I doubt we would ever see something like Flight Commander come back and rides like The Rotor and Halley's Comet (Round-Up) aren't really around much anymore. Zamperla makes a version of Cuddle Up (they call theirs Demolition Derby). While similar to the Teacups it also has elements of the Whip. A great example of this is Alien Swirling Saucers at Disney's Hollywood Studios. A ride like that would be great for the park and we already know how the chain likes to work with Zamperla. Chance is still around and while they don't make the same version of Wheel of Fortune (Chance Trabant) they do make similar models. Carowinds is installing a Trabant ride as part of their new area this year.
  4. With Joyland Park in Texas closing hopefully Cedar Fair picks up some of the flats. https://irmrides.com/product-tag/joyland/ The Musik Express is a Mack and would be a nice pick up for the chain. Hopefully Cedar Fair already picked up the Trabant, Tilt-a-Whirl, and the Eyerly Spider (more to use for parts for the various Eyerly Monster versions in the chain).
  5. That's about 90% more trees than Carowinds has.
  6. From the images in the WKRC article, I am really curious what is going on in front of the storage building immediately behind the Freestyle location. While the park hasn't hinted at a third ride, this area doesn't match up with anything in the original concept art. It wouldn't make sense for the AE exit to go clear over there and the exit wasn't going that far over in the original concept art and the markers look like more than just a regular exit path.  
  7. It was very much prime real estate to never be open, and I do think the Ice Cream idea is a great one.
  8. I would love to see Hugo's somewhere in the park as well. It would be nice to have some different food options in the park like the calzones. If the Sweet Tooth location is coming back and put in the Subway location, I would prefer they just do the Ice Cream there instead of the Ice Scream Zone beside Banshee to help reduce the bottleneck in that area beside Banshee. I doubt they would do it but just tear down the Ice Scream Zone location and put another indoor Coke Freestyle location there to spread out the crowds off the Action Zone midway.
  9. I'm sad to see Mac Shack go away. That was one of our favorites at CP.
  10. The Facebook version also shows the Coke Marketplace
  11. My wife and I will be there as well.
  12. Now the top part is a yellow color above the light blue.
  13. I do wonder what they are doing with the stripped basketball game. While that game generally gets pretty good business, I am curious if they would be better off just using the one down across from Zephyr (which has seemed to be open less the last couple years) as there are fewer bottlenecks there compared to this one. With The Racer exit, traffic coming from Marketplace, as well as the additional foot traffic that will be coming to and from Adventure Port that is a lot of traffic that would have to dodge errant basketballs. While you could make the case that foot traffic would be better for the game's success, it is also going to stick out like a sore thumb when everything else around it is going to well themed.
