Where else could IJST have gone?

Recommended Posts

I know that many of us are sad for losing the tique's and the Flying eagles, sad.gif But where else could they have put the IJST. On top of this, Where could PKI replace the Flying Eagles and the Tique's. Yes PKI has alot of space but the rides they have fit into the area they are in. This is my question, Where else in the park could IJST have gone. Also, Where could the Tique's and Flying Eagles be moved to in the park without removing them?

I was thinking of it going next to FOF, on the other side of the helepad. Another place was the lake near Rivertown. As for the Flying eagles. It could go in that empty space next to Delirium. The Tique's could fit in the aria Day's Of Thunder is now, That is if Day'd Of Thunder was removed.

The problem with putting IJ:ST near FOF is the fact that it would not fit with the theming of the area. PKI has a perfect area to put in a Sci-Fi themed section of the park, and the inclusion of IJ:ST would throw that off.

They put IJST there because it's in a good spot, right in the middle of the park, however, that's not a good spot in a maintainence point of view.

Changing FOF to MTV Soundwave would throw that off.

I honestly don't see that happening

Probabily why they didnt put IJ in the fields is because its queue would go over a main maintenance road. From what I hear (I was at Western during this time) driving to a ride during FearFest is a censored.gif

They could always have put a bridge over or a path under the maintanance road like they did for Son of Beast/ Top gun queue.

However i think the chosen location for IJST is a good location, right in the middle of the current park, now only if they wouldve put Top Gun there it probably would've been more popular.

I think that IJST is fine where it is. I would have liked them to move the Eagles over by the FX theatre, or somewhere else instead of shipping them off to Carowinds.

Yeah, they probably could have put it behind FoF, adjacent to the Rosebowl. But it kind of works where it is. Sure they had to remove the Flyers and Tiques, but life will go on. There were a couple other places they could have moved the Flyers at PKI (like the FC platform) - but they didn't. So chances are - even if we got nothing this year, they probably still would have gone.

So when I said lets all cry about Scooters leaving, that was an insult? People are weak. You might as well delete The Vortex removal topic too.

Insult? laugh.gif

You would be going into the woods on that one. It'd be a good spot. But if you're in a car thats sposed to be going through the streets then a big open area would be good. So I think that where it is now is a good place.

i think the middle is a great spot. it is well situated from the Eiffel Tower and can be easily gotten to from the entire park.

but i am really tired of them taking out a ride every single year. it totally screws up the park atmosphere. old rides can be alot of fun sometimes.

Im with hablo and capitan picard on this. Who cares, it already happened, we went over it in the forums, they didnt listen to our expert opinion on what needed to be done so they made a business decision on their own. I think it wasn't the BEST decision, but it was a good decision all the same, others say it was the worst thing that ever happened blah blah blah. It HAPPENED. Let it go guys.

Anyways the layout is pretty good, right in the middle, I wouldnt want it cramed to the side anyways. I didnt mind them taking out tiques, but the eagles could have went numerous places but did not. And the field by the rose bowl by FoF? Do you realize how close the layouts are for Fof, SOB, AE? Thats a pretty tight layout, alot of maintenance to work around, and one heck of a walk for guests even if they could pull it off

It should have went in Action Zone because almost all of those rides are themed after movies.

Yea, but Son of Beast, Delirium, and Express are all not movies. IJST is going to Rivertown in the rides department (don't know about the map) but that would keep Coney clear of movie themed rides.

I agree Coney should not have Movie Themes,

I like the Idea of Eagles on the Old Zodiac/FC/EuroBungee Platform.

C'mon, If they wanted to, they could have drained the lake, and put IJST there... hmm...
