Decoding Episode II: Rivertown 2017 and the Falling Trees

Recommended Posts

2013 did have much more teasing, but this year has much more teasing online.

No tease will compare to the O'terpy gravestone though. That was hilarious!

I'm going later this evening. Around 3ish. Can you see the clearing from The Beast's queue? Or only from those spots on the ride?

I wouldn't say there was more teasing. I'd just say they are teasing in much different ways. That is why I love our PR team!

I was there this morning, wasn't visible from the queue. I noticed 2 clearings and there was a groundskeeper running a machine right up against the supports between the 2 clearings.

Clearing 1 was visible immediately exiting the first drop tunnel on the right hand side. Also visible on the second lift hill if you look to the right.

Clearing 2 was just after the hill coming out of the first drop tunnel (with the trims) and before you make the turn into the brake shed.

I'm honestly shocked management is allowing these workers to even mention Son of Beast and new coaster in the same sentence. Now you will have the GP all screwed up. But a 200ft tall woodie is not out of the question. As long as short cuts are not taken during construction like the last one. Also with a steel structure it wouldn't be hard. But my guess is a lift hill between 125-135ft and a ride length between 3000-3200ft.

The minimum length based on the information at city hall is 3250ft. Elevation is not considered in this number.

Over the river and through the woods....

 

Why do people go to grandma's house, or in this case, the train house? Holidays, and what holiday event is rumoured to come back this year? Winterfest, so it could be a hint for Winterfest and not the said coaster. 

 

Logically, a lot of Christmas trees are felled for the holiday season, people travel over rivers and woods to get to relatives, Christmas tree farms have signs that say watch for falling trees, so it could all just be.....a diversion....or maybe this is a diversion, who knows.

I think I have two names for the new coaster depending on what ride it'll be:

Good sized GCI/Rocky Mountain woodie: "Psycho Beast"

Kiddie Coaster sized GCI: "Beastie"

Be nice to bring The Beastie name back, however I don't see that likely, as with the name's connotation I think it would be viewed (obviously) as a kid's coaster. I strongly feel it won't be. It'd be a great name though.

^Be nice to bring The Beastie name back "to its rightful place" by renaming Woodstock Express. Why they ever decided to theme the greatest kids coaster ever (with a terrible paint scheme) is beyond me...curse you Paramount!

Old man rant over.

^^Oh gosh, I wish so much that could happen. I still call it that.

 

Although, I'll still catch myself calling any ride in that area by its Nick U name. So many great memories. I'm 25 today, so do the math, lol

Woodstock Express was given to it by Cedar Fair. Paramount didn't have rights to the Peanuts theme.

^was at the park with my son (3 yrs) a couple weeks ago so we were hanging in Planet Snoopy. I overheard this 12-13 yr old girl ask a middle-aged man where The Beast was and he replied "which one, the big one or the little one?" She looked at him like he was from Jupiter. After she left I told him we are in an old generation..."the little one" doesn't exist anymore.

It held the title of Beastie the longest and was my first coaster so Scooby Doo doesn't exist to me.

Also, I referred to Paramount bc they were the ones that ruined it first with The Fairly Odd Coaster.

It was named Beastie, during the Nick U expansion era it was renamed to the Fairly Odd Coaster to go with Fairly Odd Parents. So of course when CF came in they had to rename it. So it went and became Wood Stock Express.... Soooo curses Paramount

Don't forget... They also removed the tunnel on the first drop.

Been watching the POV of Prowler at Worlds of Fun. If this coaster is anything like it from what i've seen and heard; I think it'll be a good addition.

If this is a GCI, I wonder if they can set it up with 3 train operation minus a MCBR a la Banshee.
