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.

My final prediction for 2019 is that they will add one or two rides in planet snoopy. I would love to see a coaster but at this point it isn’t likely.
Please wake up. We are trying a new technique. We don't know where this will show up in your dream, but we hope this message will reach you. You are in a coma. Please wake up. Your family needs you.

They already announced on their website.

I love donkeys more than me.

I wasn't expecting much, but I have to admit I'm a little disappointed. Oh well, hopefully it means they are gearing up for something big in 2020...

It's neat that they are paying homage to a bit of WOF history again, but as usual it kind of falls short. Wish they had done something a little more whimsical with the architecture to make it look like one of the old boats, or give it a smokestack, or something. It looks pretty bland, in what is already the most cookie-cutter section of the park. For a park that was built on such a fun and imaginative theme, the slow progression of generic-ness throughout the park has always been a little sad. At least it's something though, and they made a little bit of effort to make it interesting.

It's not a "sexy addition", but I would love if every CF park had a Harmony Hall Marketplace like Carowinds. This does not appear to be of that scale, but I do like CF has been greatly improving the dining locations at many parks.

Does anyone have an update on Prowler? I'll be at the park Saturday and was just wondering if there was anything to report.

^ Screamscape reported it as open. I tried checking Queue Times, but couldn't see a wait for it in the past few days. Granted that may just be the norm for the park considering it was a walk on Memorial Day when I was there.

Thanks! I wasnt at all optimistic, but that's great if it is open. It was closed when I was there at the very beginning of the season.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!
