  1. While I am very excited to see the additions to both Busch Gardens Willamsburg and Hersheypark, I'm definitely more excited for the latter, as not only is it a new ride, but also the future possibilities that a new expansion/land provides you. I can't wait to see in, say a decade, how the new area is filled out. Maybe by then, they will have expanded (or will be expanding) over across Park Boulevard to the other section of the old golf course.
  2. It dawned on me recently that Batwing was the last brand new roller coaster added to Six Flags (not counting the relocations of Apocalypse/Firebird and Ragin' Cajun). That was 18 years ago.
  3. I'm sure it's been brought up, but Google Maps finally updated their Street View imagery of the park. It now includes Skyrush for instance, which the old Street View did not.
  4. Can't tell from there, but I hope they removed the old skull (and the other bits of Typhoon Sea Coaster/Skull Mountain that remain). I don't know if there's a technical reason why it can't happen, but I'd love for Wild One to be fully open as it was before Typhoon Sea Coaster was built. It's just an eyesore to have old parts of the track still exist. If I were to guess, it's probably possible (technically), but it's probably just not worth the effort (financially) for them to do it.
  5. The most recent update improved the process of finishing coasters. Previously, if the height was an odd one, finishing the coaster would sometimes seem near impossible. Not anymore! http://themeparkitect.tumblr.com/post/181117321937/version-12
  6. Last week they announced Parkitect is coming out of early access and will officially release on November 29th! http://themeparkitect.tumblr.com/post/180040639007/launch-date Just an FYI, if you have any interest in this game, get it now, because the price of full release will be $29.99, a $10 price increase.
  7. I sort of miss the piratey themed area where Apocalypse is. I don't know how long ago it happened, but they combined the pirate area (don't remember the name) with the Nantucket themed area and named it Chesapeake. The problem is almost nothing there resembles anything close to the Chesapeake Bay (for instance Roar or maybe whatever is replacing Apocalypse could be renamed to Chessie). I liked the look of the old areas. Even the Nantucket area, as small as it was (especially after they blocked a guest path), had a nice theme to it.
  8. There would be no reason to remove this ride for a Roar conversion. Do you think they'll ever get rid of the old Typhoon Sea Coaster structure (that Wild One goes through)? They used the skull portion of it for Apocalypse's theming, however on the inside of it (the part you see while riding Wild One) parts of the old TSC track remain. I would imagine it would probably require some sort of refurb for Wild One and would not be a worthwhile investment. I recall when TSC opened in Spring 1997, Wild One was shut down to make those alterations.
  9. Is there a possibility (with Roar being situated next to Apocalypse) that it's being removed as part of a RMC conversion of Roar? The west coast counterpart has already had one. I know people are always talking about the chances of a Roar conversion, but with Apocalypse leaving, I wonder if that is closer to being a reality. Also, as a side note, they mention a big attraction coming next year. Next year is the 20th anniversary of SFA's conversion from Adventure World.
  10. With the new area, is there anything they can do regarding Spring Creek to mitigate future floods? For instance, if they widen the creek in the new area to match the width it reaches in the park, would that help at all? I'm guessing it doesn't help that Spring Creek narrows suddenly over by the catering area/Skyrush turnaround. Would that just be a waste of money?
  11. I think a flyer or 4D coaster will come first. I'd love a flyer, but if the layout some people have determined from the plans is accurate, it would be unlike any flyer layout over. Flying coasters don't tend to have an out and back layout. There is a first time for everything, though. Speaking of guesses, I did a YouTube search to see if anyone made one in NoLimits and there was just one (at least for now). Edit- Random thought: While looking at old aerial photos of HP, I remembered the park used to have a rapids ride. Would it be out of the realm of possibility to give the park a new one? Canyon River Rapids was removed for the second phase of the water park following the 2008 season. Most big theme parks have a rapids ride. Should HP have one (again)?
  12. I'm sure this has probably been brought up in the past, but down the road, when space really becomes an issue, is there a plan to create off-site parking so the current parking lot can be utilized for more park space? Maybe a monorail or tram could transport guests from parking lot to park. I would imagine some of the current lot would remain for various reasons.
