  1. My theory on the love SOB gets is that it comes from people who either never rode it or were very young when they first rode it so they don't remember the roughness.  

    SOB will always hold a special place for me for the hype that preceded it as well as being the first coaster I got to watch the construction of as I was just becoming an enthusiast.  But other than the loop the ride was not great.

  2. I would love to see a screen printing store like you see at many malls, but in this case it would have a lot of different designs for various rides throughout the park.

    Have ten or so different plain colors in various sizes.  You would buy your shirt pick your design, they would screen print it, and you could pick it up later in the day.

    From the park's viewpoint they don't have to keep a ton of inventory for rides that may not sell a ton.  But if someone comes in and wants to buy a shirt with Zephyr or Cargo Loco they could easily screen print it.

  3. There does appear to be more trees removed behind Orion almost directly behind the road behind Orion's transfer track.  Here is a screenshot from April of 2023 compared to now.

    I do wonder if long range they may move some of the storage things behind and around Timberwolf to this area.  It is not a ton of clearing but it is something to keep an eye on.

  4. So apparently Pig Pen's Mess Hall is a new restaurant but exactly where is it going in Camp Snoopy?  There are some storage containers besides Snoopy Boutique.   Could they be retrofitting that building or is it going elsewhere?

  5. While the article does say that Linus Launcher will be part of the new area, I am hoping that it is also one of the repainted rides mentioned. That purple doesn't really fit with the Camp Snoopy / Rivertown transition.

    I also hope they repaint the outside of the restrooms building.

  6. I think carnival games have their place in an amusement park but I don't know that we need four basketball games (including 3 point challenge). 

    I would love to see them take out the one between Juke Box Diner and the popcorn stand, level that ground out, and put in some flats.  Obviously the dream would be to take out 3 point challenge and bring back the Eagles.  Coney has 3 of the 4 basketball games and it isn't uncommon to see 2 of the 3 closed frequently.

  7. The old arcade building used for Killmart two months out of the year in Coney Mall would seem to be a good location.  I don't know how busy or how much money they make off the Antique Photos in Rivertown but that would also seem to be a good location.

  8. I'm excited to see what comes of this.  I would love to see the next big coaster go in a rethemed Action Zone.

    If it is going there, the next couple years will be entertaining especially the reaction that will come about if it isn't going in The Vortex plot.
