    Spending far too much time reading forums, love doing it though for when I can't be out at a park. Or camping, or laying on a beach or both. :)

    It appears that Whitewater still sells flumes and some other cool water rides. Mack has some nice water rides though too and Cedar Fair at least has showed some interest in working with them. https://www.whitewaterwest.com/product-category/water-rides/ oh and Sansei (sadly the closest we get to Arrow anymore) has some traditional flumes https://www.sansei-technologies.com/eng/product/play/rapid_ride.php

    Maybe I'm just wanting to hear the similarities but...

    This whole addition by subtraction theme in parks the past year or two has been bittersweet. I know some things must leave for certain reasons just seems really prevalent of recent. Kings Island with Firehawk, Kennywood with Log Jammer, Carowinds with RRR & whatever the name was of their Congo Falls equivalent, IOA with the Dragons, and Dollywood with thankfully just rumored at this point Slidewinder but have lost a lot recently while adding, and nearly forgot SDC with their rapids ride. As much is gained so much is lost. I had to wait to bring up Volacano :'(

    The map was posted on Carowinds Facebook page as well. With that said it leaves Carowinds with 0 dry park water rides when they once had 4 and maybe something I'm forgetting. Sorry for not using actual names in some cases but I recall their log flume, the super flume, super saturator, now the rapids. All while keeping it's location in the south?

    Does Kings Island need a giga?

    Once the park builds a giga most anything built afterwards would be smaller things. Personally living nearly equal distance to Kings Island and Carowinds, the latter especially now with Copperhead Strike is becoming the more appealing park. Still love Kings Island though especially during late night private events.

    Firehawk Leaving Kings Island 10/28/18

    Could be that as the ride currently is it has reached the end of its service life. Sure a refurb could extend this life but barring that refurb time is more limited. Refurb may also be much simpler and effective once disassembled. SFOG said Wheelie reached the end of it's service life but Fun Spot picked it up refurbed it and it continues on today. This doesn't mean either park is misleading anyone.

    Kentucky Kingdom

    ^Beech Bend says hello. Although that said if Kentucky Kingdom were able to team up with them and take their rides down there (which I believe they can't legally) they could have a pretty good park. I'd rather Nashville get their own though and for Louisville to have their own as well.

    Ideas for the Crypt building?

    Here's a video showing off the Mack idea.

    Ideas for the Crypt building?

    I definitely think a coaster could fit especially if you include outdoor sections. I also really like the ideas of a water dark ride. But if you really wanted to blow it out of the park I think you could make one up even Tomb Raiders orginal idea. With the advancements in 3D Projection Mapping you could do wonders to create whatever enviroment you could imagine. (Dreaming sequence here) But I'd love to see a tracked Kuka arm coaster. Keep it family friendly by allowing each arm to select an intensity level. Or to make it much more budget friendly maybe use the rotating suspended coaster trains that Mack produces.
  10. No matter how good the restaurant even good vendors can send you infested produce on thankfully rare occasion. Anytime there's mass produced food contamination becomes a possibility. Not something to desire to think about but it happens. Good restaurants react accordingly but most all have to react.

    The Giga Speculation Thread

    While the document seems to indicate B&M and 2020 aren't these things usually more about when work is to commence. Meaning just as likely the construction starts in 2020 and opening 2021. Not what we want to hear but seems possible.

    Just for fun: FINAL 2019 announcement predictions

    Final guess for me is Antique Cars with an RMC traditional retracking of Racer and hopefully a Skylab replacement. Maybe the new Zamperla version as a nod to the previous and "new". Hopefully The Racer rehab also includes new trains from a manufacturer that encourages backwards operation but that is 2 to 4 new trains so that's pretty costly so not expecting that. As for the cars the dream would use the Flight Commander pad as a roundabout loading station with the road venturing off into the D.A. area but maybe mimicking the old Auto Roller Coaster when closeto the midway.

    Wildwood Grove Dollywood 2019

    Here's Dollywood's blog about the area. https://blog.dollywood.com/index.php/2018/08/03/dollywoods-new-land-offers-attractions-experiences/ Definitely think it's a good addition surprised River Battle wasn't part of it but still hoping that gets reinstalled at some point. The water park would be a great place for it.

    Which coaster gets the RMC axe?

    What's beyond out of the box thinking? Because I'd love to see RMC re-imagine Vortex. Maybe with T-Rex track, maybe with Rapor track, or beyond with Topper Track. We know they can make wood coasters something entirely different than they were before but what could they do with a coaster that's currently steel?
  15. Photo posted by ACE Southeast via Facebook With the announcement just hours away I've grown more excited of what may come. With the recent teasing and the name drop this could be a great addition. I may be wrong but it seems to be an "enchanted forest" theme. With the park comparing this new land to rival Disney I'm getting the feeling of what I've affectionately termed "Redneck Avatar Land" may be created. Of course there won't be blue people in this version unless they include the Appalachian Blue People (best not to look into that). In all seriousness though I think this is Dollywood's shot to cement their spot on the map. The new area likely won't include some major thrills but I think this is where they define their future. Not a whole lot is known other than 8 new attractions and a restaurant. One is allegedly an Orkanan clone whic Another a swinging boat ride, rumored that River Battle will be reinstalled up there, a pony track ride which I'm sure is likely to be like Moose on the Loose another ride Herschend installed when operating Darien Lake. Then a play area, a new restaurant, and other attractions. Only a few hours away to find out. Link to Friday August 3rd, 2018 morning announcement (10am EST I think?) http://bit.ly/2OcUDf2 #DW2019
