Decoding Episode II: Rivertown 2017 and the Falling Trees


Recommended Posts

So I have never posted pictures, so trial four. These are the location of markers that I saw from my train ride Sunday.


The white markers seemed much more random but the red/orange were what looked like a marked line for a buffer line between the train station and the woods/ maybe not so much woods soon. The reservoir had water and red marker line down to it from the top/left of this pic this. o59bap.png

Ok, Magenta Lizard took my baseball line. I'm going to completely flop on my original stance and join team giga with that last tweet. Seems like they are teasing a very large attraction.

I just have to wonder how the new giga will interact with the relocated DA....?

Since we're back at the decoding thing again, can anyone point to any of the "clues" that the park put out for Diamondback or Banshee that, if somehow correctly interpreted, gave an actual hint to what was going to be constructed?

Because of some boat ride credit.

Although they may have gotten credit, I don't believe that anyone actually confirmed this (I could be wrong). Anyway, the credit wouldn't be nearly enough for a large coaster, especially a giga or "cowboy coaster."

That being said, Cedar Fair chooses quality, safety, and reliability. Intamin (Cowboy coaster maker) is known for struggles with the last two. B&M, however, is known for the last two.

There are other companies much like Intamin, such as Mack, that could also make a "Cowboyish" coaster. I'd believe Cedar Fair would much rather choose them. (Look up the POV of Helix online to see their work).

...as well as that one of their executives went on record discussing "acceptable levels of risk" or something like that. ("Acceptable level of risk", in my book, is ZERO.)


EDIT: Also, wasn't the last Intamin coaster installation in the U.S. back in something like 2012? That should be quite telling in and of itself.

And even if they essentially got a coaster from Intamin for free with these credits, I don't think they'd go for it. Safety is too important to Cedar Fair, this isn't Mt. Olympus.

How many INTAMIN coasters have been installed in the United States since 2010?


How many B&M coasters have been installed during the same time in the United States?
