  1. Not haedly...they've already gotten that record.As for what's coming in 2013 we won't know till the announcement but I doubt it's a new huge coaster of the 300ft. variety as construction would've started by now as we saw with I305 back in mid 09. It doesn't matter much to me since my season is shot thanks to what happened in recent weeks,which is why I havn't been back on the forum till now.I'm hoping my sister & her family will get 2013 passes so I can possibly go next season ut I doubt it at this point as it depends heavily on their finances as to wether or not they can afford a four
  2. Rebel yell is running pretty smoothly this year. Regardless, rumor mill says that GCII is beginning a 3 year "Thunder Road-esque" renovation. I'm excited the prospect. With a new coat of paint. I rode thunder road about a year ago & it was horrid.
  3. How about if they got Carolina-Cobra like trains? That would be an improvement as those Arrow cars are only suitable on straight track like a lift or brakerun LOL!!
  4. Well not very many parks in the US offer them anymore & the ones that do still se a fair amount of ridership so they could very well make a comback since they offer a different exprerience from other coasters & the GP will flock to it if given the chance. Remember that,while wingriders may be the current "flavor of the month"gimmick that fad may not last long & these rides may end up going the way of the flying coaster or suspended coaster.
  5. The thing that gets me about a rumored retheme of the kids area is that they had an opportunity to do this in 2011 to finish up what they'd started in 2010 with the retheme of the former nick central area & all the park did was add starlight spectacular so why wait two or three years to finish what was started in 2010?Also for any sort of work to be done in kidzville we'd be seeing at least some sort of markings by now,or sometime in the near future otherwise they may be working on something totally different & might be trying to throw us off since nobody saw what exactly was on those
  6. I disagree. Efficient marketing IS what brings in the money! Cedar Point wouldn't have spent so much time and effort marketing themselves as "America's Roller Coast, the Coaster Capital of the World" for all those years if it wasn't worth it and didn't produce a marginally decent ROI. Cedar Point is a resort destination that attracts people from all around the world, and I'd be willing to bet that the fact that they always broke records and had the most (albeit not necessarily the best) coasters in the world definitely attracted more people. I remember back when TTD was built, the par
  7. Funny how a few years back I took a flash photo with my digital camera in the FOF station & got yelled at by one of the ops.
  8. A possibility exists that a part of the 2013 attraction may occupy the footprint currently occupied by treasure cave? In order to retheme kidzville they'd need to remove/replace virtually every one of the rides save for their dark ride & ghoster coaster as there's no more room to increase the physical size of that section of the park without going into congo...that & most of the rides have already been renamed from nick/HB to peanuts/generic themes since 2010.
  9. The only part I find painful really is that last turn & the airtime going through the bunnyhops into the brake run hurts my shoulders a bit but it's not as bad as hurler or anaconda. For 2013:I would expect the teaser graphic to be a little more comical/peanuts like as opposed to what we see in the art work if it were for a revamp of the kidzville area.
  10. How can it be a "record breaking" addition when most of KD's guests wouldn't be able to ride any kids rides?
  11. We've got quite the discussion going in a couple of facebook groups on the subject right now but I find it odd that KD would be teasing this early for something as simple as a rennovaation of the kids area since theirs is already bigger than SFA's LTMT section & with better rides for the kids. "Record breaking" sounds like something in the thrill ride category to me & it will have been three years since their last coaster but since we got windseeker this year as well as DA it kinda throws off the whole thrill ride one year/family ride next year rotation since both were done togethe
  12. I only see one coaster being added,not two....Kinzel never went so far as to add two coasters at CP just to satisfy his overinflated ego & since he's gone & Matt Q is in charge he's gonna follow a more cost effective plan especially since there are other parks in the chain that need new captial investments as well. This is seems like the most reasonable post here. Cp is trying to regain its coaster count by adding another one, that was the general message. Some people read to far into things and assume there will be two coasters. If there is to be second attraction, i doubt it will

  14. No big deal about it at all,it's probably just a blocking error but this is not the thing that KD wants or really needs right now on a ride that someone recently died on. Did anyone go to the park this weekend & if so was Dominator back up & running?
  15. Why would CP's announcement even hint at another addition outside of the park in a future year?The announcements are usually specific to the park in question.I have a feeling this will use a nice shade of blue based on the graphic on the banner rather than green...I'm thinking kinda like Manta's color scheme more than MF's & certainly nostinger/leviathan's rather hideous colors.
  16. SFI in the premier era destroyed the park by trying to turn it into something it never really could sustain & I think they tried to do this with their other original properties as well when they should've remained small to moderate vs trying to be something they weren't. Having said that SFI was in a position about a decade ago where the philosphy was on expansion,expansion expansion chainwide without thought to the long term consequences of their wreckless spending & it ultimately caught up with them but not before some of these parks paid the ultimate price for it,namely SFWOA/GL
  17. Looks like Dominator got stuck again,someone posted a photo on facebook with a train in the MCBR & another one stopped on the lift the other day.
  18. Not bad but they could've shown more on the actual mechanics of the trains like they did with windseeker.
  19. I305 and Steel Dragon 2000 would of been better competitors, my opinion. I wish they would of made 6 competitors instead of 4 But it was still entertaining regardless. I still don't see how Aftershock (Giant Inverted Boomerang) beat Montu, Alpengeist and Shiekra? It's because that show's polls are rigged from the start.I don't hardly see thousands of joe public flocking to their website & voting in that poll let alone watching the show so they have to pick a winner at random & besides the parks pay in advance to have their rides featured so they know in the end what the o
  20. To an extent, I'd imagine it would be remembered similarly to The Bat. First of it's kind, maintenance nightmare, sitting idle more often than not... But at least with the bat nobody came off of it in pain for the most part.
  21. Yeah,I read the article earlier today....really sad but unfortunately her condition was a ticking timebomb that was bound to go off sooner or later & what makes it more sad is that she probably was completely unaware of the condition.
  22. You're right about the first drop being the worst, however I'll gladly accept any improvement to the ride. Hopefully the park will like the improvement and opt for topper track on the entire ride. But thats just me dreaming I'm pretty certain that there's at least one woodie per park in the CF chain that could benefit greatly from the RMC treatment.Hopfully this works out & CF recognizes the potential ROI that such an investment can provide.
