World's Best Kids' Area to Get a Whole New Look in 2010!

Recommended Posts

Even though I hold Nick U near and dear to my heart and they will be missed greatly, I think this change will be very interesting and give it more of a Cedar Fair kids area feel. I do think however, that a tribute to Nickelodeon Central video should be arranged. Gotta love the tribute videos.

I agree ^_^

Are they announcing like tomorrow or the beginning of next year (the ride names)

It is very unlikely that they would announce it the first day of the offseason. I would give it untill at least January for anything to be heard. There is a possiblility that they might not even announce it and just silently change the ride names on the web site like they did the 2007-2008 offseason, or maybe they will have some big press conference like CP did. Who knows, only time will tell.

Wasting money is exactly the opposite of what they would want to do. Adding more kid attractions does the following:

1. Kings Island can have another safe bet of getting the golden ticket award again for the best kids area.

2. They could add another kiddie coaster and then the coaster count for the park goes up.

3. Advertisement('Snoopy and the gang is back to give your little kids more thrills than ever before with our new attractions making it the best kids area in the world'. Somthing of that nature).

Too true! Besides, Universal has the rights to amusement park related Wizard of Oz things... Of course, their park in Japan also has a Snoopy themed area and coaster... But Wizard of Oz? Doubt it. If a beloved park icon who was already well-established and whose liscencing doesn't expire for quite a few years was kicked out of the mansion, it's likely due to Snoopy not wanting to intermingle with other cartoon characters... We'll likely see nothing but the Scooby characters removal, perhaps with a few carboard cutouts of those Howl-O-Scream characters with the big eyes. I can't imagine much more than that.

I believe it was Kd's Twitter page that said their SDatHC would become a generic shooting game. I would assume ours would become the same.

Judging off of Carowinds names, I think they had some real clever ones, and dont seem as 'forced' as the Paramount switchover names. Though I am really hoping that The Beastie does make a reappearance.

Carowinds, Thank You for posting that!

I think the names are very creative. Especially Lucy's Crabby Cabbies; reminds me of quite a few of the Peanuts comics

I've read.

I'm really hoping that Fairly Odd Coaster is not renamed Woodstock Express, like every other park seems to have... YAY for Beastie!!

That would be nice, but considering that woodstock express at carowinds is almost the same coaster as FoC and had some of the same names that ki's did (Scooby-Doo, Fairly-Odd Coaster) I am not so sure....

If any one is paying attention to the KI website they took out the kid area on the ride and attraction section of the website so something tells me we are going to know soon or were going to get a surprise later in the off season.

I agree with Mike I do not understand why they are converting it to the Peanuts. Kids these days will not know who the characters are since the Peanuts are not on TV (at least to my knowledge). I wonder why they didn't go back to hanna barbara?

First of all, the usual caveats about Wikipedia...

But, even for Cedar Fair, The Train Station is very, very generic. And confusing.

Adults will be asking where The Train Station is...and some will mean Losantiville, others Planet Snoopy....that will dog park workers for quite some time, if true.

As far as the kids' area goes, I feel bad for any kids who loved Nick. I also hate that Scooby is leaving. Personally, though, I'm looking forward to Snoopy in 2010! I've never been a fan of anything Nick related even when I was a kid growing up.

Most of those names are okay for the most part. Just very generic. AS of right now, I am hoping these are not the real names. Like Interpreter said, the Train Station would be very confusing, and in my opinion it would just be way to generic.
