  1. I agree that a Mack multilaunch would be the best option. A GCI would also be great but I am not sure if they can build in Canada.
  2. Drop the er at the end and I think you'll find the answer you seek.
  3. The worst coaster I ever rode was Flight Deck at Wonderland, the 2nd worst coaster I ever rode was Time Warp right beside it at Wonderland.
  4. Phantom Theater and the Keggers would be at the top of my list. Both family attractions that would be great for the whole family.
  5. I would definitely be in favor of a Camp Snoopy overhaul. Doing the more rustic overlay would be a nice transition from IS to Rivertown.
  6. Merry Christmas Don and everyone. Hope everyone has a great holiday.
  7. Action Zone is the answer for me. It has the bones of a very good area (Banshee, Bat, Delirium, and Drop Tower) but going with a Transylvania / Spooky theme would add so much. It needs more family flats because once you get past Congo Falls and The Bat, there is nothing for families to do in that area.
  8. So if it is a chain there are probably three logical choices: Cedar Fair: While selfishly it would be great to have another Cedar Fair park two hours from my house, at best it would be Michigan's Adventure where they weren't investing in it much or at worst it would be Geauga Lake. Six Flags: Obviously SIX left them high and dry last time. During an ACE event I attended back in 2018 the workers were talking about Six Flags destroying the coaster operating systems which KK had to add new when Ed Hart and company bought it. SIX is not the same group it was at that time but I'd be surp
  9. This is a big win for the park and a really smart move. It wouldn't surprise me if long term we see expanded ERT because of this (similar to CP's 1 hour ERT compared to our current half hour).
  10. WhiteWater West took over the old Hopkins company. Something like Daredevil Falls at Dollywood would be a nice way of bringing back KCKC but still be well themed. The thing I would say is that people seem to not like getting soaked as much as they did 20-30 years ago. Obviously getting their technology (be it phones, watches, etc.) wet is the big difference. I do think a bigger flume in Rivertown could be successful though.
  11. ^ If we were to get another B&M, a flyer would be near the bottom of my preferences. I've ridden Superman at Great America, Great Adventure, and Georgia and I'm pretty sure each of them were down for at least part of the day I was there. I actually preferred Firehawk to it. Superman was better than Nighthawk though. My preference of B&M models we don't have: 1. Floorless 2. Wing 3. Sit-down 4. Dive 5. Flyer 6. Stand-up
  12. I think it will be several seasons before we get a new coaster because of COVID and also because of the chain in general. Since we just got a coaster this year, one would think that the other parks will get another coaster before we will. I could see Cedar Point and Carowinds both getting a new coaster in 2022 or 2023, KD is highly rumored to be putting in in their S&S Wing which if it is successful I could see them putting it at some of the smaller parks in the chain like MA and VF. I think over the next 4-5 years the park can focus on improving the Oktoberfest and Action Zone are
  13. KI is the only one I went to when it was a Paramount park. Under CF I've been to all of them except CGA. 1. KI- The best overall collection of coasters, themeing, and rides. Even though it was the Paramount flagship, I feel the park has improved even more under CF. 2. KD- I have seen KD described as KI with different toys in the toy box. The similarities are crazy. Their IS is a little shorter but feels very similar. Obviously there are the clones (FOF, BLSC), the similar coasters (Racer 75 and Anaconda). Avalanche and Dominator are both really fun coasters and Twisted Timbers
  14. I agree with all of the ones that I have been to that have been mentioned so far. Ones not mentioned so far that I'll add: Carowinds: I love Fury and it is my steel number one. While the park does have a lot of less desirable coasters, they have a pretty solid top four. I would rank them 1. Fury, 2. Afterburn (probably my number 2 invert), 3. Copperhead Strike, and 4. Intimidator. It is also a park that depending on where you are coming/going from that you could combine trips with (KD/BGW on one end, SFOG on another, or Dollywood). Six Flags Great Adventure: My favorite of the Si
  15. Hopefully this means the ride can finally stop having so much downtime and that it can run both trains. I'm a Dollywood passholder and in my trips down there, I don't think we have had a visit where it hasn't gone down for part of the trip or been down the entire trip. The park has even seemingly been making less merchandise for the ride the past few years which is strange for their headliner.
