Decoding Episode II: Rivertown 2017 and the Falling Trees

Recommended Posts

 

 

If read the way i read the clues, I see us getting another big coaster. KI has 14 total "coasters" Subtract the smaller ones: Woodstock Express, Flying Ace Aerial Chase, and The Great Pumpkin Coaster, you will get the number of 12. The number on the blue train. I'm sure none of us consider Surf Dog a coaster.

14 - 3 = 12?

That's not what I was taught back in Caintuckee.

Terp -- who learns the darnest things here.

 

That's that new common core math.

 

Best post yet  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Alot of grey/unpainted track outside CSM today.  Its not close enough to read the tag from the road.

Every single other ride, the person who is operating the Control panel is always someone with a pure White tag. While with flat rides such as Delirium, WindSeeker, Gliders, or any other ride that is not a roller coaster, I have seen both Blue striped tags, and pure White tags driving them.

Surf Dog has Blue tags operating it.

What I mean by tags, by the way, is name tags.

White name tag means they are 18 years old or older. Blue means 16 to 17 and yellow means 14

So what model is that track? I know some of you can tell just by looking :) looks like its made to take some forces. It also looks pretty big. I'm still relaxingin the woodie but if this track is headed for KI, I'm still pumped! Bring on Project 2017!

I thought that B&M made deals with parks not to install a similar coaster within a certain radius. If so, then wouldn't that rule out a wing coaster with Holiday World nearby?

I don't get how people will be unhappy by a new ride addition. I get that people may be disappointed, like I would be if we don't get a B&M giga, but I won't be unhappy if we get something else. Bring on the GCI, RMC, Mack, and (least likely but very fun) Intamin! If you don't like the ride, you still have everything else in the park that they had the season before (except in the case where a ride is taken out and replaced by a worse ride *Cough*Backlot Stunt Track* Cough*). Just be happy that we are getting something new, while other parks have been dying to get anything (See Michigan's Adventure)

Hey... Michigan's Adventure got something INCREDIBLE for their 40th anniversary this year..a petting zoo!!! Probably the first non pre-owned attraction they've gotten since CF took over...

I have mixed opinions on the biggest CF parks getting all the rides. On the one hand,it would be nice to see parks like WOF getting world class rides, but I also think that parks like Cedar Fair need more rides to keep their legacies.

White 18+

 

Blue 16-17

 

Yellow 15-

 

The rule is that anyone under the age of 17 in Cedar Fair (Or at least with Kings Island) Cannot operate a roller coaster. 

 

But if people with Blue tags are operating Surf Dog, then the park does not see it as a roller coaster.

I always wondered why Intamin Stand-up track looked like that. The even weirder part is that those rides came out before B&M even started. Also, Cheetah Hunt says hi.

^Yeah, Intamin took the "B&M approach and did box track for a time. See also the defunct Flashback

And the disassembled, rusty mess that is clearly piled up in pieces and plainly visible (if you know where to look) from a main road just across the street from Darien Lake.

Yes, I know there are other green INTAMINs, but the green track (for a yet-to-be-built coaster) at CSF IS green track, and DOES resemble a certain type of INTAMIN track. So it did exist all along, it just took several years to actually show up :P

In all seriousness, I am going to be excited for whatever we get. I have hopes but am not gonna let those cloud the reality of the situation.

Need some Gold Bond for all that stretching homestar? :P

 

There is truth to that though, Walt and Claude both worked for Giovanola, a company who supplied rides to Intamin, in particular, their stand ups and the ride formerly known as Flashback at SFMM, which have track that's identical to what B&M uses today.

In 1830 the first trains were active in America. During this time mail was delivered by pony. So often ponies raced through routes to prove that mail could be delivered faster.

Just for fun. What if the new attraction was similar to this?

It's not about legacy so much as it is about return on investment. Which is why you'll probably never see a giga at Michigan's Adventure.

Nothing to see here. Just some trees, and a few engineers and stone carvers working on an 80' statue... move along

This is the best post in this whole thread.

Might even be the best post ever on the forum. I legitimately laughed out loud
