  1. I could see both WWC and perhaps the railroad being tied together with the overall Mystic Timbers theme. Wouldn't need animatronics or anything like that, but some static elements to tie WWC into the Miami River Lumber Company, and parts of the railroad that are close to MT/WWC having the same.
  2. It was always just before the start of the lift.
  3. From the photos, it appears to be a rollback because the front wheel assembly of one car ended up jammed under the back wheel assembly of the car in front of it. If it had just failed, the front car’s wheel assembly would have fallen back. I’m wondering if the chain snapped or lost tension, and the anti rollbacks didn’t engage quickly enough.
  4. The lift hill is not "leaning" or even anywhere near critical damage. One of the brackets holding the stairs is bent, and at worst, one piece of track needs repair.
  5. I keep hoping they'll repurpose the ride again for a proper dark ride, because unlike the stock Sally installations of Boo Blasters like at other parks, they still have a perfectly good ride vehicle/conveyance system for use as an all-out dark ride like Phantom Theater was. When it comes to Cedar Fair additions, and I know this is probably petty and I might be the only person to even think of this, was the "covered bridge" on KMAA. Instead of one pond in the middle with the "dueling" track sections being on an actual covered bridge like the originals, they made a faux covered bridge that'
  6. It would be interesting to see how the area would look if Paramount hadn't removed the original Antique Cars, and then Cedar Fair removed only the abandoned side and built Mystic Timbers (or a different name/theme, but still a Rivertown GCI) interwoven with the operating track. They might have even had enough clearance to both go through and cross under the covered bridge on the abandoned side. Heck, maybe the then-clear side of the covered bridge could have been the holding brake that the Shed acts as for three-train operations without baking the riders waiting there, with the transfer a
  7. From the last blog and last two tweets, it doesn't seem they've removed anything from the top of the split hill itself. Height thing maybe, like need a rental crane for that?
  8. Action Zone and Oktoberfest are conveniently adjacent neglected areas. I'm staying with my previously posted opinion to merge AZ into Oktoberfest, and Bat/Banshee could be the Black Forest part of it. Then you'd have a good-sized, proper Oktoberfest like Busch Williamsburg.
  9. Are you talking about this? https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/1120955158320770/ It doesn't reference KI, no identifying markings, and KI was not the only installation of that model monorail. Edit: This article seems to back up the claim that it is, indeed, a former KI cab obtained from Jungle Jim's. https://www.orlandoweekly.com/Blogs/archives/2020/12/12/in-the-front-yard-of-a-pinellas-park-home-sits-a-monorail-car-this-is-the-story-of-how-it-got-there
  10. No link as usual, and I can't find it on Marketplace search.
  11. I don't have an RV or camper trailer, but honestly even being a local, the cottages/cabins/whatever you want to call them look really nice, especially when paired with all the other amenities. I can see those in particular also being popular when you have, say, a two-day event like Coasterstock. I'm guessing there will also be some kind of shuttle bus service to and from the park.
  12. It takes a lot of bulldozing and grading to build something like this, the original KI campground was pretty light on trees at first too, and for that matter so was the developed part of the park itself. Give it some time to grow back in.
  13. I scored a mint condition one of those bumper stickers and original “I Felt The Grip” button on eBay back in the spring, and more recently an original postcard. That’s my first time seeing the other Vortex decal though.
  14. I've always thought the area directly across from Dodgems would be a good spot for a big wheel. Might have to ditch the former Antique Treats food stand on the corner there, but it would fit in well and make a statement for that entrance to Coney.
  15. I'm curious about what part people mean by "dip in the helix" in this thread. Are we talking about the unusual right lateral bank in the turn into it, or the typical Arrow-style "clunk" transition when it turns left while descending after that and enters the arches?
  16. I don't consider the building to be out of place, but I consider the usage to be out of place. As an arcade building, the placement is fine. As a Haunt building that's just a facade the rest of the time, a main midway building isn't exactly great. Dedicated buildings for Haunt attractions are fine, but I'd rather them be out of the way instead of taking perfectly good midway space. I don't mind Urgent Scare's use of Action Theater, because Action Theater is otherwise defunct and back behind a closed gate out of sight. I would like to see the former TRTR/Crypt building either demolished or
  17. Ditch the separate name entirely and blend it with Oktoberfest, then you have a proper Oktoberfest area like Busch Williamsburg with both family and thrill rides, and both "fest" theming area and the creepy forest area. It would involve a lot of concrete removal but could certainly be done.
  18. Most of the smoking areas were fairly small, so no proper distancing possible, and you can't smoke with a mask on. Exhaled smoke could also carry virus particulates and cause them to linger in the air more than usual. Tower Gardens was the only large area for smoking, and it's currently being used as the "RelaxZone" area where you can take your mask off. The area over by Invertigo outside the front gate is the designated smoking area for this year, and they're using re-scan rather than hand stamps as part of the COVID precautions, so I'm not sure what's wrong with just having that area fo
  19. That's by the Field of Screams haunt. It could either be related to that attraction, or just staging for offseason trackwork on Racer and/or Beast.
  20. Apparently that iceeelectronics seller had multiple people involved. There's a new listing for preordered kits, priced now at $999 and showing as two available and three sold.
  21. The pre order one isn’t showing on eBay anymore, so it either sold or was removed. The auction format one (physical item) remains.
  22. Could just be a chain break or drive motor problem.
  23. The $600 or best offer one has vanished, either sold or taken down, but two more have appeared. One auction with a single bid at the $450 start, and the other is a $499 buy-it-now for a *preordered* kit.
  24. There doesn't seem to be a way to access the AIM username field when editing user profile. I was trying to remove it since AIM is, well, kaput, but it's not visible.
  25. The SoB plaques were also only sold in the offseason and by phone order only, limit one per person. These will actually be in the park for an entire weekend and with two allowed per person, so there's likely going to be people buying two so they can scalp the other one on eBay too.
