  1. He said that the last thing he wants to do is shut things down again, but wouldn't rule one out.
  2. I'd be very upset if they got rid of Drop Tower. It's imo the best out of the 6 Drop Towers I've been on. I've been on this, Lex Luthor Drop of Doom, Power Tower, Liberty Launch, The Big Shot (Stratosphere), and one of those mini Drop Towers at a traveling carnival. Plus it is one of the few Gyro Drops in the US.
  3. I think the saying covid is here to stay is that covid will likely become a virus that we learn to live with like the flu. That doesn't mean we'll be taking these precautions like wearing masks, social distancing, and banning mass gatherings forever, but that just means that the virus will still be around. It will depend on vaccines and treatments.
  4. I think as vaccines and treatments start to roll out, we'll see a gradual return to normal. I do think we are looking at a rough 2020/2021 seasons for parks. However I think 2022 and beyond should be big years for not just theme parks, but all the entertainment/attractions industry. Mainly due to people eager for a return to normailty. I like to compare it to the "Roaring 20's" which took place after the Flu Pandemic and WWI. I do agree that it's going to take a few years to recover.
  5. Idk about that. I believe with the pandemic and all, I think that CF and KI are looking more short term right now especially there is no guarantee that they'll be able to resume normal operations next season. Also Mike Koontz at the Orion media day said that the planning for Orion began in 2018. Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFBsJU4AbK4
  6. Where would they do it? I don't think there is a good enough topography there for that
  7. I definitely love both. However, some wooden coasters are not as re-rideable when they are extremely rough while most steel coasters are extremely re-rideable. However, I love the concept of the hybrid coaster which is a steel coaster with a wood structure. I've ridden Steel Vengeance and Twisted Colossus and loved both.
  8. Oh please not this again. I wouldn't take too much into that.
  9. Ik I'm going to get a lot of backlash for this idea, but here it goes. I think that the next major coaster to go in this area won't be in the Invertigo/Congo/Timberwolf plot of land, but I think it'll go in the area where The Bat currently sits along with the big giant field behind Banshee. I still think Congo Falls and Invertigo will bite the dust, but I think they'll be replaced with a flat or two. I think Congo could get replaced by an S&S Scream n Swing and keep the water there and have it swing over the water. Maybe they could go the Canada's Wonderland route and add a flat or two to
  10. Yeah, I have a feeling we are going to be starting next season with some if not all the restrictions in place. However, as time goes on some stuff may be lifted. I still think we'll see the return of Grand Carnivale, Summer Nights, Haunt, and Winterfest next year. I also see Soak City reopening next season. I think the first thing I see changing in terms of rules is capacity on rides. I think they should at least try to use every row, but maybe not pair single riders. I think they should be able to sit groups of 4 across on Orion next season. It'd be more like Banshee where groups of 4 can sit
  11. It was expected to go up as the weather cools and people move indoors. So this isn't too much of a surprise. However, Idk if I see Ohio or the country locking down again over the winter or not. Not talking about a strict lockdown like some countries did or are doing, but more like what happened in the winter/spring with the stay at home orders and such.
  12. I wonder if they'll play this video in the FUNTV's in the future. Ik they play videos with people who worked on MT on the Fun TV's.
  13. I didn't get kicked out of the park for any reason lol. What I mean is I don't want to tell any stories of guests or encounters I've had with guests bc of how CF is strict on team members saying anything about guests on social media. I would never do anything to get me kicked out of the park.
  14. My main question with adding new rides to A72 is where would they place them? Would they remove the Maintenance buildings or open up the area on the left side of A72 near FOF's exit?
  15. As a KI employee, I'm not going to be telling any stories because I don't want to risk getting in trouble with KI's social media policy, but does anyone here have any kicked out of KI stories from this season?
  16. I agree with the International Restaurant thing. Ik this sounds like a stretch, but I would like to see them try and build a patio from the restaurant to overlook international street and the fireworks. Now for your 2023 thing, I believe they could do that if a coaster is coming in 2023. Hyping up a flat ride or kiddy ride all season just doesn't feel right imo.
  17. I'm well aware of the economic problems from Covid. I don't expect to see a huge investment until at least 2024.
  18. For this concept, I used the combined space of Vortex and Backlot Stunt Coaster. I also put a multi level restaurant where The Vortex station was. The restaurant would be a sports bar and would open a year or two before the new coaster opens. It would feature 2 or 3 levels and would have interactive games and VR activities inside along with patio seating and a viewing deck. The coaster would be an intamin multi launch and would be a mix of Maverick, Velocicoaster, and Pantheon. The name is Outback Rider
  19. I don't believe the parks should follow that and they should keep the restrictions in place for now until a vaccine is widely available which likely won't be until spring/summer 2021 at the earliest.
  20. Coaster wise, I think a multi launch would be great. Most likely would be a Mack, but I would love to see CF give Intamin a call to build something like Velocicoaster or Taron there. However, I still wouldn't be surprised if they don't put a coaster here. What if maybe where the station was they put a multi level restaurant/activity building there. IK this won't happen, but maybe do something similar to Topgolf there lol.
  21. LR was a prototype since it was the first ever launch wooden coaster. A launch system was never used on a wooden platform before so it was something new. However, I doubt other parks will look into a launch wood coaster after the headaches LR caused.
