  1. I can't see anything but another family friend attraction going here if it was going to go right after something like Orion was built. If it does have to go, I think some sort of 'light horror' themed flat ride could go there.
  2. No offense, but I do feel as if that thing would ugly up Rivertown. It really fits the aesthetics of Paramount's Action Zone.
  3. VR motion simulators for the former popular coasters would accompany this nicely.
  4. There's that and the fact that leaving a tree up in a position that poses a risk of falling upon the tracks is not so appealing.
  5. Isn't it true that the air conditioning for this was not functional early in its days of operation?
  6. Underground water flume attraction confirmed.
  7. Given how little strain it puts on the tracks, I don't see it going anywhere any time soon. It's not practical to tear out a reliable, popular ride like that. One thing I can see them doing is restyling it. I don't think that would be too difficult with how compact it is.
  8. I wonder how difficult it would be to put a small enclosed flat ride with a glass ceiling inside of the FoF building so guests could look up into the spaghetti bowl in the darkness. It's a strange idea, but I think it would be very interesting if there was adequate real estate. Something like a Rotor or Gravitron would make the most sense.
  9. Don't crucify me for bringing this up, but assuming that The Beast requires significant retracking there is a non-zero chance that CF might consider RMCing it. It's not a fate that I am comfortable with, but more tragic things than that have happened in the past. The park's 50th is coming up soon after all, so radical change is always possibility even if unpopular with many.
  10. Frankly, I think the building is an excellent candidate to become a large 'barcade'. Given the location, the park could easily decorate it with either a full Rivertown theme or perhaps even a neon 80s style theming, given how close it is to the old Vortex plot. Alcoholic drinks could be sold and a wide selection of classic arcade cabinets could be made available. This is something that older guests with less affinity for the summer heat could certainly enjoy.
  11. You're supposed to use echolocation to navigate the queue after dark. I figured that was pretty obvious.
  12. The park definitely needs more ambient music. Something like this might actually get me to go near WindSeeker. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_SVhB-a7cc
  13. Gonna be headed to the park on Saturday. I guess I'll die.
  14. The only rough part on Flight of Fear is the final brake run. That's a straight up lobotomy.
  15. It's the same reason many people don't like The Beast. Some people are too yellow-bellied to appreciate a good beat down.
  16. It may seem a bit early, but I could very easily see Congo Falls taking the plunge at some point this year.
  17. My apologies, I misread the first post. I stand by my statement regardless.
  18. Gonna be going next month. I'm avidly waiting to see what sort of protocols I'm going to have to abide by with seven people.
  19. Good Lord, this thread is old enough to go to war. That being said, I'd love to hear some Oingo Boingo at at the park.
  20. Definitely anchovies. You can't scrape those salty, little things off.
  21. WindSeeker -> The Rotor BLSC -> Tumble Bug Invertigo AND Congo Falls -> Vortex (with a dark neon/80's theme)
  22. Nothing but trees should ever go up where Vortex once stood.
