I take it you have never eaten at Harmony Hall?

Take Coney BBQ, Larosas, Island Smokehouse, and Hanks and put them in a single building to choose from. A great variety of food options in one place.

No, I've never been to Carowinds. However, stuff I've seen is that it looks very similar to the Festhaus, but has more options. Sounds like what the Festhaus should be imo.

I would want KI to add a HH type building somewhere in the park over changing festhaus. Rivertown might be a good fit for it if western themed.

Watching this offride video of Outlaw Run, I would love to see us get an RMC with a similar theme to Outlaw Run (Wild Revenge from my version of Rivertown would have that) and you can see how the plaza looks. I really like Outlaw Run's entrance that goes through a depot. I think would be awesome for a coaster in Rivertown.

Came up with another Rivertown concept. It includes a new mack multi launch in The Vortex area, a saloon, a candy/taffy shop, a gift shop, a new dark ride in the old crypt building with the building being painted to look better (see my Hotel Phantom idea in the crypt thread), and the pathway to the backlot plaza being moved to Coney.

Congo Falls needs to be relocated to a different spot in the park or removed. 

I've always felt like Congo Falls should have been moved over to where the Crypt building is now instead of keeping the building there. After they took out the ride, I felt like this is a perfect opportunity to move Congo Falls over there. I also liked the idea another poster said about keeping the beginning part of the queue of the crypt building in tact, but tear down the bigger part of the building to the point where you can see more of Diamondback. But not just because of that, but because the haunt that they use every year doesn't need that much height room.

I feel if Congo Falls isn't too old to relocate, it should be in Soak City if anywhere (if possible).

I do think RT should get a modern, non-Intamin flume.

Idk if we'll ever see another water ride built in the dry park. I think they'll save the new water rides for Soak City. If they do anything with Congo Falls, it'll likely be removed entirely. I would like to see more water for scenery though. Maybe put in one of those mining things where you get a bag full of dirty rocks and put them in water and they turn into crystals.

SDC also just built Mystic River Falls which was a big success.  

Wasn't it a revamp of their old rapids ride? I definitely wouldn't mind some upgrades to White Water Canyon in the future. Maybe even renaming it.

I would like to see some upgrades and enhancements to WWC but I don't want to see it get a big lift and drop like MRF. Ithink it would hurt the immersion in the forest for it. Mystic Timbers has already cut into the area a bit. Would like to see more theming to tie in with the Mystic Timbers story added along the course and some fog or other effects added (misters back in the tunnels maybe) but overall I think it's a great rapids ride and wouldn't want to change it too much

Oh yeah definitely. I don't see them adding more to it than theming/scenery and maybe a new name to tie along with Rivertown and the Miami River.

Came up with another concept and added water back at The Beast as well as a Scream n Swing where the Crypt building is and a new mining activity (similar to what Pigeon Forge has). I also added a Mack multi launch named Forest Rumbler that ties into the Mystic Timbers theme and the Lore of Rivertown. Watch this video which explains the theme and lore around Mystic and Forest Rumbler basically expands on that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cpa7N-9mZYM

Even though it's not labeled the Entrance and Exit of The Beast would be moved back to their original locations and a snack stand would return where the vending machines are right now that I believe once was a snack stand (correct me if I'm wrong though)

Man, that is one giant Sceamin' Swing! I like your ideas of The Vortex replacement being  part of Rivertown instead of Coney.  The Beast water looks good, too.  The saloon and candy shop--do they replace the pathway, or are they backset towards the Junkyard Coaster?  Would the saloon be open air, or enclosed like the Brewhouse?  It would give an opportunity to use all the space available and give some great seating areas to view the new coaster, while shielding the view of the Junkyard Coaster.  Very good concept!

The pathway to backlot would be moved to Coney Mall. The saloon would be indoors just like other saloons and would feature a stage with a new show.

I have envisioned an expansion utilizing the area back near Beast's station. I like the idea of the mining activity, and I've always wanted a Screamin' Swing to go where the Crypt was. Tear down the show building but leave the queue intact just rethemed as a mine. I would also move the petting zoo back to that area as well themed to a farm like Cedar Point's. As much as I like Slaughterhouse I would probably reuse that space for part of this too. I'm a bit mixed on the coaster addition though. I would utilize part of the space and expand the building to wrap around more. i would build a dark ride or indoor themed ride (something more simple like a saloon themed Madhouse or Western motion simulator. Have the queue start with a themed entrance by the arcade and exit out next to La Rosa's in a new gift shop so will expand the themed building front there by 50% or more.
