I could certainly see a park like WOF getting an RMC Raptor- but we're averaging coordinates now?
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

Why do I still have a donkey title???

A "high level manager" told him that the midway point between the East and West coasts is Kansas. He needed a high level manager to tell him this and not, you know, a map.

And those coordinates are still 342 mi. from WoF.

I do find it interesting how many different parks Cedar fair is using in whatever they are teasing, however. I wonder if whatever it is will be going to multiple parks.

I asked someone a few weeks ago what Wof was getting for 2019 and they answered sharply “ Nothing”.
We always get something though right? The fact that he answered immediately made me think there is something.
However then he went on to tell me that they are replacing the asphalt throughout the park with concrete
Like they have at the front gate. We both agreed that it would be sad not to smell the hot asphalt as that is kind of a staple
Of any amusement park.
Question is how many other amusement parks in the Chain have concrete throughout?
It also made me wonder with the immediate landscaping upgrades and supposedly new concrete if they are eventually expecting huge crowds in the future. Of course we would need a new big ride or two. What’s the cost concrete vs. asphault and longevity?
The concrete would obviously be done in multiple years.

A new RMC Raptor for Worlds of Fun.

The clues are all in the poster:

1. Here is the original poster and coordinates: https://twitter.com/CPFoodBlog/status/1022125680803414016

2. The first clue in the poster refers to passage across the Mississippi. The origin is Cedar Fair headquarters at Sandusky OH. Crossing the Mississippi, you have 4 parks: Knotts, CGA, WOF, and VF

3. Knotts and CGA received coasters last year. That leaves World of Fun and Valleyfair.

4. The second clue is from the coordinates. They are: 37.8399 N 77.4442 W, 37.3984 N 121.9752 W, or Kings Dominion and CGA, respectively.

5. A weighted average of these 2 coordinates gives: 37.61915 N 99.7097 W. This location is surprisingly close to World of Fun, which is 39.1767 N 94.4867 W, and certainly much closer than to Valleyfair.

6. Finally, the mine train refers to a smaller coaster: an RMC raptor.


Please refrain from making ridiculous predictions on Theme Park Review under the ruse that someone important ever spoke to you. Thank You

I would guess Super Busy!!! Last weekend for it. Although you might get lucky if it’s cooler temps.
Heck I actually saw Boomerang with full trains last weekend in the dry park.

Waiting on someone to do the Official announcement, since
We get in trouble for posting early. “Murmurs about 2019 are very interesting “ according to their twitter
If interesting is a 9k sqft restaurant Awesome.

First of all, obnoxious posts like this aren't welcome on our forum. Secondly, if you honestly think that this is the type of announcement that we are talking about, then you are one of the dumbest people on the planet and I'm shocked you're able to get up every day and dress yourself.

I ask dumb questions.
