  1. I have a weird fascination with premier sky rocket IIs. Yes they're clones but they're super unique and customizable.
  2. That wouldn't be a bad idea either! However if I was calling the shots I would put a Premier Sky Rocket II there (or next to Flight of Fear)
  3. If the antique autos didn't replace the old Flight Commander area it would be cool to see a wild mouse named Wildcat in County Mall to mimic that old amusement park/Coney Island feel. Theoretically they could still add a wild mouse coaster to Coney Mall, just place it between the Juke Box Diner and the Coney Refreshments eateries.
  4. There's already a fire fighter themed Gerstlauer coaster, I'm suggesting breathing new life into a ride that was heavily themed around a Paramount movie
  5. I still can't believe they planned on putting baboons in the same enclosure as the lions.
  6. Wow, scare-actors purposely jumping into moving vehicles and beating park property with hard pieces of metal....sounds about Paramount. Today we would call those "OHSA violations"
  7. It also sits fairly high above ground as well https://www.coaster101.com/2013/08/18/Banshee-construction-update-8-10-13/
  8. I have a cool one, so hear me out on this. Cincinnati, Ohio is home to the 1st professional and paid Fire Department. Why not retheme BLSC to a fire-fighter theme? Repaint all the trains red or have them all be tiny little fire trucks. Repaint the shipping containers next to the launch and the helix structure with a brick texture to look like a firehouse. Change the billboards to reflect Cincinnati highway signs. They could keep the fire scene and make it look like you're driving through the burning building (the inside of the tunnel could have red lights. Riders then escape the building
  9. Animals are a touchy subject (unless they're petting zoo animals.) I don't know how parks like BGT can calculate how much money their animals make them. Its not like with a coaster or a flat ride where they can count the ridership numbers to determine how the ride is doing.
  10. Outback is mainly an Australian term...having it said in an American park seems wrong. Backwoods or badlands would make more sense
  11. I think it would be awesome if Cedar Fair could purchase an additional crown and give KI a 3rd locomotive so they can operate during haunt and space out the boiler usage. I always kinda hoped Levi would make his way to KI if he didn't stay at WoF, (doubtful). I know having KI acquire a 3rd locomotive would be a longshot since they'd have to install a 3rd locomotive bay but it would be nice to be able to operate 2 locomotives and give the 3rd one a break. My argument is the train to station ratio should be 2:1. We have 2 stations so that ratio should be 3:2. Cedar Point operates 3 loc
  12. Compared to Six Flags and Sea World, I'd say Cedar Fair isn't too much in the hole but that's just an assumption
  13. Do you think they'd consider selling off their parks?
  14. This leaves some interesting questions regarding Cedar Fair: Would the chain indeed add new attractions to each of their parks every season or would they go back to mainly investing in their larger parks? Would they turn to cloned rides to lower spending or would they continue to pursue the practice of quality over quantity? Would they ever consider selling any of their smaller parks or closing them? Also some questions regarding the competing chains: Would Six Flags or Sea World Entertainment consider selling some parks? Could we see Six Flags or Sea World
  15. I'm about to argue for the addition of a cloned coaster so please bare with me... Why I KI Should Consider a Sky Rocket II In 2012 Premier Rides would debut their Sky Rocket II model. This coaster would be cloned eight times with some if its clones having different variations like switch stations, two car variants and three car variants. The current maximum capacity for these coasters are around 750 riders per hour which is theoretically lower than Invertigo's capacity; not a 1st choice for a park that sees over 3 million guests a season. So why am I arguing for something that's capa
  16. I just learned that RMC is located just under 20 minutes from Silverwood which is crazy. I thought it was much farther away.
  17. I think Soak City is underutilized during its respective off season. The park could host different events during the months that its not open. They could do the November idea like I mentioned earlier but they could also open themselves up to stuff in early spring before the park opens. The fact that its more detached from the park allows for them to be more independent and flexible when it comes to potentially hosting events.
  18. They hosted the children's Halloween event in Soak City for a few seasons and it seemed to work out just fine
  19. I've had this idea in my head for a while so hear me out. Also this does not apply to the Covid-19, just whenever things get back to normal. Imagine a November fall festival that takes place between Haunt and Winterfest. This event would be located in Soak City so the park could make the transition from Haunt to Winterfest and would be open on Saturdays and Sundays. There would be food stands/trucks, music, Peanuts meet & greets, beer, games, and even college and pro football on various TV screens. The train ride could also be open and would just make a loop from the Soak City station
  20. My attempt to give the locomotives a more "accurate" look with my limited editing skills
  21. I believe all these attractions feature some of those names though.
  22. In Disney's eyes, they're making money from another park just to use their IP. They're already making good strides with their Avengers campus out in California. I'm sure if that becomes a success Disney will want to duplicate that for Orlando. For now though I think they're happy to collect money from another park where they don't have to do any work.
  23. That might not be entirely true. "Universal Studios had already secured the rights to Marvel for its Orlando theme parks, and Disney CEO Bob Iger at the time acknowledged that Universal retained those rights as long as they continued to pay royalty checks to Marvel. And there's no sign of Universal giving up that golden ticket." https://www.tampabay.com/fun/heres-why-walt-disney-world-will-likely-never-get-a-marvel-theme-park-20190614/#:~:text=Universal Studios had already secured,giving up that golden ticket.
