  1. Things Paramount got right/wrong

    Although I still think it is worth it all things considered, it's a shame how Cedar Fair removed Swan Lake for the Diamondback splashdown. I don't see why the lake had to be drained and replaced with a small concrete pool. If they wanted a splashdown why not just drain the lake, build the coaster over the lake, and refill it. What a missed opportunity!
  2. Oktoberfest Area Facelift?

    ^That's similar to what I was thinking. "Action Zone" is no longer a theme. It is just generic amusement park. I would have made Banshee as part of Oktoberfest. All of Action Zone being annexed into Oktoberfest or the rebirth of Adventure Village with Oktoberfest expansion is more than fine by me. It seems that theming of areas hasn't really taken off as many of us who thought it would under Ouimet. P. S. I want to see the Coney Mall sign back. Why did they take it down?
  3. How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    Gwazi ran PTC's.
  4. How was your ride on Mystic Timbers?

    Haha, that was my dad you met. He says he hopes you have an awesome time at Dollywood.
  5. *If* Backlot Stunt Coaster was removed....

    I personally think BLSC was a big mistake. Keep in mind the park is not only about coasters. The only "coaster" I'd like to see in that location is an old-fashioned steeplechase. It would be a nice, fun ride along the same lines in feel and thrill level as the antique cars.
  6. King Ding Dong I'll try to answer your question. Generally a ride will re-open fairly soon if an investigation reveals that the accident was caused by rider or operator error, or was the result of, or was an aggravation of a pre-existing medical condition. Most amusement park accidents fall into these categories. If the ride itself is flawed and is legitimately unsafe,(and safety extends beyond common sense in today's society), the rides will usually be modified to ensure that they are now safe before re-opening. The changes to New Texas Giant, and the Intamin Drop Tower comes to mind. Sometimes the park will decide to close the ride, or they can be forced to close it if they cannot ensure safety in the future. Now I say all this, but it should be noted that amusement park accidents with serious injury or death, especially those involving innocent, behaving, guests, are very rare in today's amusement parks. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up being one of those tragic cases.
  7. Meanwhile Robb Alvey is blaming, while claiming to not be blaming the parents. He's actually saying "what kind of parents let a 10 year old ride the world's tallest water slide without them?" That's frankly ridiculous, insensitive, and wrong.
  8. Ah yes, you've got me there. Didn't you know I'm Canadian, eh?
  9. We used to do the same. The nurse's station at the exit of the Crystal Beach Cyclone comes to mind. Oh well common sense is long gone in this regard, but to be fair we have more common sense than them in some other regards.
  10. Meaning that in Europe forseeability goes less far? I know in the United States forseeability extends quite far.
  11. You're an idiot. I'm not joking about the kid, or his death, or his parents, or anyone related to him. I made a word play about the park, and in the very next sentence said I hope the cause is found. Question; when you see the meme "jet fuel can't melt steel beams", your reaction is...? Okay then... I only ask if you would say that joke to the family of the deceased. Some things should not be joked about. Edit: Disregard this; I just saw he's banned.
  12. Not funny. I was going to let it go, but apparently it wasn't just an unfortunate lapse in judgment. A child has died; what is your problem? I really don't understand people like you.
  13. I'd go with that plane thing that Canada's Wonderland got or or a Zamperla Air Race for the Flight Commander spot.
  14. It should be about time we started seeing some of those European flats that Cedar Fair was looking around for. It would be a nice touch for the anniversary.
  15. What's In The Shed!?

    How about a jojo roll? See Hydra. I think it's just a block with a movie scene.
