/\ They haven't even confirmed anything yet, so there goes that question.

Our main suggestions currently are Orient Express's land, the land behind Thunderhawk, or behind Finnish Fling.

Please, no! Even with Prowler in the park, I still really enjoyed Timber Wolf apart from the roughness. And, surprising as it may be, I know I'm not alone.

^I kinda like Timberwolf, as well. I think with a little "love," it could be a great ride.

I know I was trying to say IF something goes where OE used to be than where would they put the station

Even though timberwolf beats the holy crap out of you it is still a great ride. It'll be a shame to see it go

Timber Wolf needs MAJOR work to stay in operation, IMO. It has sentimental value to me as it was my first "big" coaster, but it has become so rough that, apart from the first drop, it's no longer enjoyable. Now, should the park go for the Rocky Mountain treatment I'd be 100% on board. ;)

I think the land behind Finnish Fling / Octopus would be ideal for a new coaster, assuming there is enough room back there--I'm not sure where the park boundaries are in that area.

I love Timber Wolf too. It's the only real "classic" at the park still.

That's what I was assuming. The land belongs to them, saying the employee parking lot is located directly behind it (give or take). They have a hand full of good acreage back there too.

EDIT: Am I the only one that remembers that Dive Machine rumor floating around from a couple years back? Hmm.. Could that be the next addition?

^^Personally, the back-wrenching first drop is what I complain about the most. But layout- and airtime-wise, it's a coaster I'd be happy to return to someday if it improves (at best) or doesn't deteriorate much (at worst).

I'm not sure how well that would work with the train tracks being right there behind them. Yeah, they could build a bridge over it but that seems like a lot of work for the park to do..

Ok, so let me get this straight. The park has only been in operation what 7 weeks for 2012 and we are wondering why there is no construction going on for a ride that may or may not be on it's way for next year? With Cedar Fair moving towards more family friendly rides and attractions, it wouldn't surprise me if they do receive a new ride next year that it isn't a coaster, more so it won't surprise me if they put in a Dino Alive.

But honestly unless plans have been seen or parts are on site, it's all wishful thinking.
