Markers have been placed at CP around Magnum entrance, and they extend all the way to the Monster. I’m curious what they are doing.  2 of the images come from Coaster Nation that I took.8EBF12AF-D608-4E33-A6C7-AC78A2D22A3C.jpegB5ED1AE1-7BDB-4BCC-A07F-93FDB20708C5.jpegD433268F-2C8C-4F4D-8E35-CDBAF3D173E7.jpeg

Topper Track Gemini Confirmed!  

It’s already Hybrid. RMC has done topper track for other coasters such as Blazing Fury.

Red marker flags like that are usually for utilities. Red means electric. Judging by the paint marks and that “PAD52” junction box, I’d suspect they are going to update and relocate some things. Most companies don’t want junctions and transformers just out in the open anymore.

I'll have to admit, when I saw this thread title, this is what I thought of:

By Coaster Nation, do you mean that you took the photos?

I saw those yesterday when I was at the park. I have no clue what the color red means though.

Red = electrical

orange = survey

white= excavation

How did we get to the removal of rides when this could be simple as replacing existing lines?

Being a former utility locator, your colors are close

red = Electric

orange = communication

yellow = gas

blue = water

green = sewer/drainage

pink/white = proposed

Some of the markers indicating proposed excavation were in the ride area.

Excavation doesn't automatically mean removal as you implied in your original post of this thread.

Please tell me how you’ll excavate the area of a flat ride without removing it first?

Daniel, key word there "indicate" not truth. It not good for enthusiast and coaster sites to see a few flags in the grass (which is probably just normal electrical maintenance) and start leading their members and followers to thinking that means heavy construction and possible moving rides to a different park. When happens to your claims when it turns out to not be true?

Very good point.

They are just preparing for 2020. They shouldn't get anything before that. Don't get excited for 2019 at CP.

True, but a lot of enthusiasts are feasting on 20 for 20 rumor.

Want to fill the rest of us in on this 20 for 20?

The rumor is that for the 2020 season (CP’s 150th) CP would insert two coasters to tie SFMM Coaster count. It’s a bizarre rumor, which I don’t believe will be true.

For the umpteenth time , the coaster wars of the late 1970's through early 2000's were pretty much dead once SIX filed for bankruptcy. It's not a thing anymore.  CP couldn't care less what happens in Valencia, CA.  Kinzel isn't involved anymore, that mindset is gone.

I mean has coaster wars really died? It just seems like inter CF coaster wars now though. No other parks outside of CF are building like crazy. I could see CF try to recapture tallest and fastest again.......
