So when can we expect an announcement?!? Don't they usually announcement expansions to the park around Labor Day?

I have no idea. I asked marketing and they said they have/had no clue so yeah whenever/if I ever hear something, I'll update you all. I'm getting an update today since the park is open, so stay tuned later today.

I'm guessing November 2nd for the announcement because the park has closed for the season. They have done this for Xtreme Swing and Riptide in 2004 and 2005. They were both announced after the last day of the season. Renegade was probably announced earlier so they could take advantage of season pass sales and the season had been extended an extra month.

Um... no they weren't actually. Xtreme Swing was September 23rd and Riptide was August 23rd.

Somehow I very much doubt that! In the amusement industry everything happens for a reason-- just like anywhere else there are schedules and deadlines. Also, like anywhere else, there are things that come up and get in the way.

I'm sure "the announcement" (if there is one!) is their #1 priority right now :b

Well I'm guessing they're just doing what every park does. Act like nothing is going on & hoping it's a surprise when it is announced, but around the amusement industry (mainly online) it isn't like that =)
Although they could be right and we aren't getting anything for 09 and the Flume is just going down so the haunt could expand right? ;)

So I was wrong about RipTide but Valleyfair closed on Sep. 22 in 2005 thus making Xtreme Swing's announcement the day after closing day.

Oh I'm sorry I keep forgetting haunt wasn't around until 06.
On a side note, I guess they're re-paving the Gazebo Stage so that's no biggie. I was kinda excited for that to leave. I absolutely HATE walking around the whole thing just to get to Wild Thing. Just make a path behind it or through it or something. I'll get another update today so once again. . . stay tuned.

Wait, didn't ValleyFair install new ride photo equipment on the ride last year?
