NOTE- I do know that the triangular numbers don't literally mean that they are in a triangle, I am just trying to think outside the box.er triangle.

Not to get off subject, but we were discussing all of the left over money... then I saw this at another site. Now it doesn't seem legit... and length is spelled wrong, but still, we can dream, can't we?

That doesn't look legit at all. Anyone could make that. But I guess we will have to see!

Not legit at all. I like the part where it said the capacity is 1,832 people per hour. Lol. Not to mention it said it'd be the biggest investment in Cedar Fair history, $32 million, while Maverick was what, $50 million? :P

RCDB has Maverick at $21 million.

Didn't Mr. Kinzel call Top Thrill Dragster the "biggest mistake they ever made"? If I'm correct then, I doubt Cedar Fair will be trying to capture any more "tallest" roller coaster records.

100% agree Cormaster. Dick has stated TTD was a mistake (I think he actually said Disaster was the biggest). For them to throw up another one would seem a little odd.

I would have to wonder about who produced the fake document though. They would have to know, especially while typing the legal spiel at the top, that they could be in some trouble for producing such false documents.

I do not think TTD was a waste I love it and remember CF is a coaster park so to speak, I am sure they will keep putting a long in the future in the same fashion.

I love it too, but TTD and its sister, Kingda Ka, have both had so much downtime and unusual problems I don't think another stratacoaster will ever be built!

I think Dick Kinzel though TTD was the biggest mistake from a financial standpoint. He has stated that he thought Disaster Transport was a mistake because he just thought it was a silly ride. ( Although that ride has grown on me over the years. )

Ok, so I'll admit it's been awhile since we've been back here to blog. But trust me, it's for a very good reason.

We've been working hard on something we'll be announcing in a little more than 24 hours. But in the meantime, here's a piece of the work:

NBP908.jpg

We announce our 2011 news tomorrow at 2 p.m. on our Facebook page. Be there, or be round. Yes, round.

The only thing I can make of it is that the picture is probably a 3D rendering of the ride area that will be used for the Concept Art; imagine the 3D rendering of Diamondback for the announcement but minus Diamondback itself.

See thread on new attraction at KI which appears to be the windsoar ( or whatever it is called.) I have the feeling that CP pulled a fast one on the public thinking this was going to be at CP. ( See the quote " whoops " by Tony and Tyler. ) I have the feeling from Tony and Tyler's photo that CP is building a coaster after all. We'll see.

Makes me wonder. After all isn't Magic Mountain putting in Coaster #17, which will tie them with CP's record? Of course Magic Mountain has tied with CP several times so CP could just not care about this time either.

They've tied, but never passed from my understanding.

Did anyone notice Tony and Tyler's closing "Be there or be round?" My friend Derek just noticed that. Probably means a Starflyer or something similar. We'll see tomorrow. Good nite.

i think the wooden roller coaster idea, from a long time ago, still has a chance, and fits the clues.

side-by-side: you set side-by-side on every wooden roller coaster

64 crayons: there could be two trains of 32 riders each

dinosaur: the oldest form of roller coaster, wooden

diaper: it will bring people back to when they were young (saying it's a recreation of an defunct Cedar Point roller coaster)

the hint with picture of feet: two of the numbers are 66 and 50, it could only be 66 ft. tall, with a 50 ft. drop.

the windmill: the ride will let you experience wind hitting you, especially if you have your hands extended upward.

Do you dare to fly 301' through the above Knott's?

I'm sure daretofly wouldn't mind at all, especially if there are no what he sees as unnecessary midcourse brakes. And TH13TEEN would be thrilled.

Terpy wouldn't see it so well, since Knott's will doubtless knott get rid of their idiotic "no eye protection allowed on any ride faster than a ski lift" policy. As long as they keep that policy, most rides will knott get Terpy to Knott's ever again (but it might make him ponder what to do about such a policy...)

And it's 301 Feet as the others. I would expect CP to be the only one with it (for at least this year) or a bit taller.

So where does Stratosaur come into play?

Yet to announce 2010, Carowinds, Kings Dominion, Michigan's Adventure, Great America and Wildwater Kingdom. Stratosoar might be next year.

As someone suggested over at pointbuzz, a lighthouse theme would have been impressive. Instead we get the same generic CF color scheme.

I would assume that "StraToSoar" was meant for the Funtime 400' SkyFlyer that, according to Funtime, was in the works before CF decided to go with Mondial.
