New ride for 2010?

Recommended Posts

Well before we discuss this, we should at least enjoy Diamondback first! Anyways, I would guess a family ride, or a small thrill ride. Maybe something on the Coney Mall Midway.

And as has also been discussed here before, the industry as we know it today is no longer a "build it, and they will come" environment.

It's more about attracting families and being economically sensible. That's not to say Diamondback-esque rides won't be built anymore, but the big ride thrill cycle is more like 6-7 years now as opposed to 2-3 years.

Another major economic spurt like in the late 90's and early/mid 2000's could change things...but just look to DC to see where things are going in terms of economic growth.

All that said, I definitely could see a big flat or something else fairly significant in 2012, but nothing for sure in 2010 and likely nothing in 2011 expect for the addition of more or new restuarants and shows and things like that.

I can see a ride transplant coming if there will be anything. This will come from a park they sell if they can find anyone to buy it.

The significant thing in 2012 could be bankruptcy if they can't roll over the debt.

I highly doubt Cedar Fair goes bankrupt at any time in the foreseeable future. I can, however, see it being sold.

The whole chain? Or just individual parks?

Yes.

Terpy, in your heart you knew he would (and it's the appropriate reply, too)

I hope we get a B&M Inverted hyper coaster that sets the record for inversions and utilizes the terrain around Son of Beast. (I can dream right?)

In all seriousness though, Diamondback is enough for me!

I would like a big boy invert one of these days however!

I would also say a small family ride. 2 big coasters in 3 years, even though Firehawk was brought from another park.

Could happen, I had a dream last night that they had a Ferris Wheel near the entrance of the kids area.

Well, yes. However, by completion I meant full completion including the queue, signage, etc.

With all due respect, I think not. Can you imagine the restrictions and provisions the Government would impose? They'd want veto authority over each planned new attraction, rules on setting food, merchandise and games pricing and the parks' schedules, etc. I can only imagine.

I think it is highly unlikely that they will have a new ride the year after building a 20 million dollar plus ride.
