Coney has Special Announcement Coming March 2

Looks to me like a rebranding of the water park (new logo?) or a bowl slide maybe (because that pulled back part of the post shows part of a circle).

Well technically, they rebranded the pool area last year as Sunlite Adventure.  (Which features Sunlite Pool, Twister water slide, Typhoon Tower, and Pipeline Plunge).  

Calakapepe, don`t look for a RMC.  Remember that it says a splash is coming...

I have a crazy idea... maybe it could be a Disk'o Coaster (like Surf Dog), but have a splash at the end...

 

-MDMC, just making a wild guess...

^^ The problem with Pulsar is that it cost $9 million.  It looks like a fun ride, but I would think Coney has better ways to spend that much money.

The park has since posted another image stating "Time to Slide."  So we have "Time to Splash", "Time to Ride" and "Time to Slide"  The announcement is this Thursday, March 2.  Stay tuned...

Precisely, Chris! Also, Pulsar looks fantastic! I personally believe that we should get one of these in the US, and it would help the US, and everything like such as... :P (sorry, I had to...)

Seriously, though, we need one of those in the US; just look how efficient that turntable is. And, it's like an impulse coaster and a huge water ride (like Congo Falls) all in one. This should be given to a park that doesn't have a big water ride, but also needs/wants a coaster.

Seems Coney Island is jumping on the logo change bandwagon--and in my opinion, it is a downgraded logo.  I do, however, like the brown circular portion that helps envision an island.

Coney Island is thrilled to announce our NEW brand/logo- Come Out and Play. This new logo encompasses who we are as a company and brand. Everyday, we inspire the spirit of play.
We are also excited to announce that the pool area is being completely re-done and re-named to Sunlite Water Adventure. The renovation includes a new bath house, fully stocked tiki bar, island decor, new themed entrance and private entrance for season passholders. Check out our concepts that will be in full effect Memorial Day weekend.

Yikes. Not a big fan of the logo or name "upgrade." Very "meh" about the other imporovrments as well. It just seems kind of off to me. I can't really put my finger on it.

The improvements are great!
Typhoon tower change, I'm not too keen about. That attraction isnt old; the change just makes me think "look at us, we have a new logo!"

The logo... Not amazing, but I'm fine with it. I liked the old better as of now... but I wasnt in love with the old one either so *shrug*

The old script logo has been in use since the late 70s, so it is definitely time for an upgrade.  I am not sure how I feel about the logo.  I liked the new logo that was somewhat rolled out last year (see my avatar).  I do not like the fact that the C and I are not capitalized, but I realize that is the in thing with logos.  

I get where they are coming from naming the pool area as Sunlite Water Adventures.  The pool is called Sunlite Pool, but they really didn`t have a name for the water area, which includes Typhoon Tower, Pipeline Plung and the Twister water slides.  Kind of marketing it as a water park.  I like the theme they are going with too. 

I have known for a while that the bath house was going to be renovated.  They could certainly use some freshening up.  They last had a major renovation way back in 1991, 26 years ago.  So they are definitely due for an upgrade.

The tiki head on Typhoon Tower was actually removed before the end of the season last year.  I like how the new look on the tower will tie into the theme in the rest of the mark.

I think they may have overhyped this a bit.  Hopefully the rides side will see some additions in future years.  (They are repainting the Airplane and Helicopters kiddy rides, which look absolutely stunning, both of which are/were painted in house by one of Coney`s ride mechanics, who also painted the turtle parade, and Frog Hopper rides the last couple of seasons).  I am still hoping they get a new wooden coaster one day, but not sure when or if that will happen.

I am excited for this season at Coney.  This will be my 16th season working at Coney.  Hopefully I will see some of you out there.

I liked the announcement, it went well.  I like the theme Sunlite Water Adventures, it goes together good and nice to market with.  I wish the new logo had a ride behind it like CoastersRZ one has, its more exciting and feeling of fun.

Yeah, I agree, a little overhyped for leading up to the announcement. They should've started the hype for the announcement a little closer to the announcement date.. or went with a less implying slogan like "Things are getting brighter" or "Coney has it, but IT is getting better"

The splash thing made it sound like a new slide or some new attraction incorporating water.

They should. 

What I meant by my statement is that I like that they added it in there to show they are committed at least in the next 5 years to improving the park.

I don`t know about a dark immersion Lost river ride coming to Coney in the future.  

If I were in charge of Coney, I have several rides that I would add to the park (besides the obvious coaster).  A Chance train ride would be among the items added, as would a set of Flying Scooters.
