Action Zone retheme

Recommended Posts

I worked on something for the past few days that I thought would entertain you guys. I’m proposing a complete retheme and consolidation of Action Zone into Ocktoberfest. It would add a new plaza about where Timberwolf theatre stands now and would make a new Bat (renamed. Look below) que. This would make it so the hike isn’t as long and it starts where the cut in from the exit is. 
To fit the theme, I decided to rename and retheme a couple attractions. First, Invertigo got changed to Umkehrenflug, which roughly translates to Reverse Flight. Congo Falls got renamed Rhine River Rapids, Bat got switched to Black Forest Monster (very fitting for location) Drop Tower was changed to Alpendrop, and Coaster Connection was given a name change to Coaster Haus. I could also see some new theming added to the que of Banshee and more scenery on AE. I know this will probably never happen, but what do you guys think?  I will add the logos and Google maps of what I’m thinking. I will put in the maps tomorrow. What changes would you make and would you think this would benefit the park?  Just note that with professional logo making they will be a lot better than the trash I made

As someone who has wished this very thing would happen on these boards, you have my support.

I’ve always felt it’d be cool to just theme it to haunted/spooky area and call it Haunted Hollow. However I’d also be excited expanding Oktoberfest into Action Zone. But the area definitely needs a retheme of some sort.

Nice one Ryan. Those logos are super cool. My favorite one is black forest monster. Maybe you should put a eurofighter or an infinity in the place of Invertigo, like one of those infinity shuttle coasters and give it the new name you gave Invertigo. I am going to make a design of a coaster that could take it's place and post it on here.

I'm in. Going to take some time and tree growth to shape into the shady charm of the existing area but this is a great start. In addition to re-themes of existing rides, I'd love some more flats (esp. a screaming swing) and more shady comfortable spaces to chill and have food and beer. That whole tented area could be a semi-enclosed bier garden with a mini-bandstand. There'd need to be cream puffs as well.

I made a little part for future expansion of flat rides. KI needs so many flat rides I couldn’t decide. A rotor and space commander throwback would be sweet

It seems like things are going down the horror route with the erection of Banshee and renaming of Flight Deck to The Bat, but that's just my take. I definitely think Oktoberfest needs some more attractions though, don't get me wrong.

Transylvania Highlands!   It already has Banshee and Bat.   A world class dark ride like the previous Phantom  Theatre would ice the cake

If you guys have any other type of retheme I’d love to see what you’d think 

With the passing of Vortex, I don't think it can really be argued that Coney Mall needs the most love right now. The Racer is pretty much the biggest attraction now.

Matter of opinion but I will argue that.  CM just got the Antique Cars last year and a new food shack the year before.  I consider Area 72 a suburb of CM and it is getting a Giga.  

I guess if you consider Vortex a major loss I see your point, but for many it was hated or just meh at best.  Something will go there eventually.  

AZ on the other hand doesn’t even have a dedicated drink stand and no discernible identity. It’s just an expanse of concrete with some good and some mediocre attractions.  What does Action Zone mean anyway post-Paramount?

Losing Son of Beast was probably the final blow to Action Zone. It wouldn't be until Banshee that the area started to recover with a new look entirely.

I remember still enjoying the Son of Beast-less/pre-Banshee version of Action Zone, but I agree that Banshee definitely breathed new life into the area!

Also, if AZ got a spooky facelift, Blackout could stay open all season long as a "new" attraction.
