  1. Lots of pictures are coming, but a few notes.

     

    1. 3 New huge attractions in the next 3 years. The only clue given was "coasters are in our D-N-A"

    2. No more game day grill...now chickie and Petes

    3. New coke freestyle and yogart stand in the old gemini arcade building

    4. No price for sling shot yet

    5. New logos for pipe scream and eagles are colorful and have an 80's flair.

    6. Iron dragon now has a 48' height requirement.

     

    Pictures coming tonight. but here is a few to wet your appetite.

     

    Well they now say they have "17"coasters and 3 new huge announcements. Race to 20 coasters maybe.

  2. According to Screamscape (which means it must be true), the 2015 project involves revamping the entrance for a new "sense of arrival." Screamscape has been wrong many times before, and this is far from a confirmation, but I though it was an interesting idea. http://www.screamscape.com/html/knoebels.htm

     

    This must mean they are building an entrance with an RMC woody key-holing over the entrance with a Zero G Stall

  3. At least Knott's has an excuse for one train operation due to Silver Bullet only having two trains, unlike other parks...

     

    We criticize "the other park" for not spending money to buy a spare train, so why is KBF is any different?

     

    I completely agree with you here. Last year we went to Knotts on a really dead day in February and every coaster was a walk-on besides Silver Bullet which had a 20 minute wait (and 40 for the front). Silver Bullet and Xcelerator were only running one train. I don't understand why they don't have an extra train for Xcelerator but since the duration is so short it's not the end of the world when they run one train. On Silver Bullet they really need a third train. I would think on busier days this time of the year the lines would get unbearably long for that ride.

     

    You would think, but the longest line Silver Bullet gets is around an hour and 45 minutes with running two trains

  4. ^You're not saying anything that hasn't been said 100 times.

     

    Personally, I think a giga would be all wrong for Knott's. Come think of it, I've probably said that 100 times.

     

    Yeah i know. Also i feel like a good coaster for Knott's would be a nice Eurofighter in Screamin Swing's or Jaguar's spot. Even better would be a nice 150-175 foot tall B&M or Mack sit down in place of bumpercars and arcade.

    When you say sit down, are you talking about a B&M sit down or a Mack sit down or just a mack one and any 150-170 foot tall B&M? Because that could mean a B&M wing coaster and, if so, NOOO! If, on the other hand, it were a B&M sit down, it would be awesome.

     

    Either or and tge B&M would be one of those mini hyperrs under 200 ft.

  6. But if it does, I'm betting its a BM. Based on leviathan and the carowinds giga, i think cedar fair will go for the reliability, comfort, and capacity of a BM rather than an exciting, intense Intamin.

     

    I'm sorry, but everyone consistently says "oh, why a B&M giga not an Intamin Giga" but does it really matter as it is 300 FEET TALL!!! If you can't have fun going 95 mph and getting some floater air you really have your expectations to high. I understand if it is an invert or small hyper but a giga that's ridiculous. As Cedar fair and any other smart chain will go with what appeals to the masses not the minority. I'm not trying to yell at anyone but just proving a point.

  7. ^^If train is completely removed then it seems to me like it is an annual refurbishment and website may not have been updated yet.

    Parks will be starting to take a lot of attractions down for annual maintenance as Holiday season ended yesterday.

     

    I wasn't saying that the ride had a failure. Also calico is not open today with a sign outside saying it is closed. The camp snoopy construction looks like its for something big besides refurb.

  8. I was at Knotts today, and it probably was my worst visit ever. oiong wiyh The park was overloaded. That's a goopoo t waid thing for Cedar Fair. The thing that upset me was Xcelerator was down, and it's not posted on their website or on the sign at the entrance to the park. This looks like a bad thing since the cable was out of the track, and they had at least 4 mechanics working on it. It maybe down for some time?? Quite a disappointing day for me... It's my fav.

    I was at the park today also for about 30 minutes before I went crazy!! lol

    Crowds were everywhere !! It was so much that I couldn't even process my season pass, and I was also wondering why Xcelerator wasn't running

    The Supreme Scream crew did a good job, I saw a train moving every 3-4 mins

    There is nothing wrong with xcelerator that I know. I was there on wensday till closing and there was nothing with Xcelerator except one train operation and 3 hour waits. I heard nothing of cable problems when I was there so they probably just let it have a break so they could do prevenitive maintnence.

  9. Hi,

     

    I am Willium Sullinger CEO of Crystal Lake Amusement Park. Earlier this year,1985, we opened our doors for the first time with two stunning roller coasters. Let's take a look!

     

    Welcome to Crystal Lake Amusment Park! This here is what you see as you walk in.

     

    Take a right and the real action will begin!

     

    On the left we have Whiplash, a rotor style flat ride, and behing it stands LAKE MONSTER! Lake monster does not only go up side down 3 times but it goes upside down 4 times at a top speed of 55 miles per hour!

     

    As you continue on, you will find Witch's Wheel and for a change of speed a Ferris Wheel.

     

    Across from Lake Monster stands Antique Cars. This ride allows you to cruise next to the lake.

     

    To the right of Ferris Wheel stands the Mad Scrambler!

     

    This is the last of the extreme flat rides, and it is called Octupus. You can also see the back spike of the shuttle loop Cannonball!!!

     

    Cannonball is the fastest coaster at our park! It launches you at a top speed of 60mph through a lopp up a spike, and then you do it all again backwards!

     

    To end this uppdate I will leave you with a picture of the Lake that gave us our name.

     

     

    Editors note: Most of the buildings that are in the first picture are predone by Bolleto on shyguysworld.(constructive critism and comments are appreciated)
