    I’m going to veer off topic for one second. With all the attention to detail they’ve been putting into their new themed lands, I only hope that we see this progress with Rivertown and Action Zone in the coming seasons. Things have been looking too good for the practice to not be applied elsewhere.

    Agreed.  I would love to see what a rethemed BLSC area would look like.  Put the Antiques, Jukebox Diner, and SRR in that new land along with a couple smaller flats.

  2. I tried Grain and Grill yesterday for the first time and got the beef and the two pieces I got were a little thicker and very similar to the cut of the old tri tip over at Coney BBQ.  I got the focaccia and perogies and thought everything was good.  The focaccia was the best of the the three.  The meat was a little dry but overall I was pleased with the meal.

  3. If The Bat is really going away, Action Zone needs a multiyear Frontier Canada style transformation.  They should put some family flats and a Mack multilaunch and really think of a long-term plan for that area as Action Zone is the one land that still feels like some of the worst Paramount planning aside from BLSC.

  4. I think something like Blazing Fury at Dollywood or Black Diamond at Knoebels are both great examples of a dark ride that KI could use.  We aren't ever getting something like Rise or Spider-man.

  5. Now that Diamondback is being repainted, Banshee should be next on the list.  I do figure they will wait until they add something new into Action Zone to bundle it in with other improvements.  Most of the other rides have gotten repainted recently though.  The Bat's paint job has help up better than Banshee's has considering they were painted essentially the same time.

    What’s ironic is that the rides people have missed the most have started to come back: the Eagles (sort of), the Antique Cars, and now the Barrels and Sol Spin. 

    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.

  7. 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.

  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.
