Not a fan of The Beast or BLSC. What coasters do you like?

The Racer is actually my fav. coaster in the park.  I also enjoy Diamondback and Flight of Fear.

I would move Back Lot Stunt Coaster to the trash.  

I can think of at least 824,659 reasons not to...:)

I would love to move BLSC to Action Zone. I feel like it would fit there better than the Coney Mall. Even when AZ was more action-movie based, I thought that BLSC was out of place. I also would like to see WindSeeker relocated to the X-Base, as it could easily fit in with the X-Base.

From a feasibility standpoint, Congo Falls would be the best ride to relocate because it doesn't really fit in Action Zone anymore. It also might get more ridership if its near other water rides like WWC and RFYLCB where people who are already wet can go from one water ride to another.

A lot of those things come down to ROI.  Number one could be done, but the ride is not in need of a repaint right now (at least from what I can tell.).  Where would you move Congo Falls to in Rivertown?  There isn`t much room and would the cost of moving it boost ridership and be marketable by the park?  I doubt it would be that marketable, unless they did something else to it to spruce it up and make it seem like new.  Same things go for The Bat.  Why go through the expense of those items when it will not increase park attendance or spending by guests (not to mention those items would be another thing that would have to be maintained.).

I think a River Cruise add some pieces to Congo Falls and truly add some dark building areas, and make it incredible. That's for Rivertown.

 

I think call the area all Oktoberfest and make it a huge stea of German , haunted, and even add a dark ride.

If this is about being imaginative, there are rides I wouldn't mind relocated around the park. From a business standpoint, I don't see the benefit of moving any rides around within the park.

I think a pay per ride flat needs to be moved to Area 72 sometime in the coming seasons. 

One of our existing rides, or from somewhere else?

TBH I don't want anymore upcharge attractions at KI. I get they are money makers, but I'd rather just keep adding rides everyone can do when they pay park admission or have a season pass.

...and (an expanded) antique cars moved to the site.

The upcharge rides are partly spectator attractions. I remember watching people ride Xtreme SkyFlyer when I was 10-11 years old, thinking they had to be crazy to do something so insane. Capacity math precludes these being included as part of general admission.

Xtreme SkyFlyer would probably benefit from being moved to a more crowded midway, but then guests couldn't ride for $5 on slow days.
