A launched coaster, looping or not, is the one type of ride that WOF is really missing. They've got steel, wood, looping, shuttle, inverted, hyper, spinning... I hope that they fill that void with their next major ride. The only other coaster they are really in need of is a bigger family coaster, something that is a good step between Cosmic Coaster and Spinning Dragons

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

I would hope that Spinning Dragons takes care of their family coaster needs for a long time. Gerstlauer spinner is the definition of family coaster- and there's two of them- built at the expense of Orient Express; something they're missing now (looper).

I've only been to the place twice, so I could be way off.

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."

An exciting capital plan? General Banks? Next year has a wider demo than kids rides?


Interesting.


And note that he says "projects" for next year, not just "project".

He was the head of the "International wildlife organization" who was a big part of hinting prowler.

That does sound promising (but what do I know). Looking forward to some more hints!
