  1. I got to ride SheiKra back in October and I couldn't agree with Chuck more. The ride took me by surprise and it was loads of fun, so I couldn't be more excited for the idea of a large scale dive machine for CP.

     

    Though keeping B&M's ride catalog in mind, I'll probably be skeptical of it actually having a creative or cool layout. Even if it isn't, I'm sure it'll be a winner. Definitely looking forward to this hopefully happening.

  2. Well... Amy from RMC did mention this in the Q&A on Facebook:

     

    Any park can have our IBox or "IronHorse" system. Six Flags has just been so great to work with and they are keeping us busy! But, there are projects at other parks coming up in the next 2 years that utilize our IBox Track.

     

    Busch Gardens seems like an even likelier candidate for conversion. Of course, it's still speculative at this point.

  3. People are overreacting so much...

     

    Even if they tease us for months and announce the new ride in Jaunuary if it's a good looking ride people will still go ride it. Also, this wasn't overhyped at all by the park. They made 1 tweet and then it was overhyped by enthusiasts.

     

    Did anyone actually think anything interesting would be announced today?

     

    Aside from a few unproductive comments, I actually don't think anybody is overreacting at all, just being critical and expressing disagreement. Also, if PR keep utilizing all caps on words like "bigger" and "better"and emphasize an "announcement" as a marketing technique, they are already inherently generating hype and attention at base.

  4. Something I dont think many people here understand is cost. Ideally, businesses want to get the most for less. The designer drafts several layout ideas, and then they discuss the options with the client. What's the best, optimal solution? What's the most marketable?

     

    More likely than not, there probably were older drafts that took up the entire original layout. They were probably more expensive. Think Texas Giant - they cut out the helix, and no excitement was really lost from the ride.

  5. Just to throw this out there, not that is really means anything:

     

    Twisted

    adjective

     

    1. forced out of its natural or proper shape; crumpled.

    "the crash left a trail of twisted metal across the highway"

     

    2. (of a personality or a way of thinking) unpleasantly or unhealthily abnormal; warped.

    "suffering a twisted ankle, he was carried from the field"

     

    I'm also suspect of the rumors, but I don't really have an issue with Twisted Colossus. It's kind of cool name, actually. It'll be a hell of a ride either way.

  6. I think people need to give Colossus and Ride Centerline/RMC the benefit of the doubt. It's the first conversion on mostly linear track which should make an interesting and out-of-the-box opportunities such as sides crossing over. While this may have inversions, I would wager it'll have a reasonable balance of both inversions and airtime. In other words, it's going to be a world class ride.
