  1. It's likely that I will be going to the park opening day. Anyone else going and interested in meeting up?
  2. Goliath is fun, but it leaves something to be desired. It would be dumb if SFGAdv got an RMC, especially one similar to Goliath. The park should get a GCI to fill the void left by Rolling Thunder Instead of another intense wooden coaster. If a launch coaster is in the works then I hope it's from Intamin. Something on par with Maverick and iSpeed would be awesome. I would be fine with a Premier coaster too. A giga coaster would be great, but I don't see that happening for a while. The possible locations for a new coaster are not big enough for a giga. Hopefully the coaster gods bless SFGAdv with an Intamin giga in the future. Lastly, please no more B&M. This park doesn't need anymore for a long time. SFGAm is my home park and they are a little B&M crazy too. I feel your pain guys and I will send positive thoughts your way .
  3. Have you been to Cedar Point before? I ask because it's in your signature and your answer could help me give you a better answer. For now, I'll answer as if you haven't been to the park. Since you narrowed down the rides so much only a few things come to mind. The only ride that I would consider a can't miss opportunity is the Cedar Downs because it's one of two racing carousels in the U.S. I'm not a big fan of carousels, but Cedar Downs is pretty fun. If you like to take pictures and or video then here are some can't miss picture opportunities. Rides I recommend are Sky Ride, Giant Wheel and the Cedar Point and Lake Erie Railroad. A non ride activity is a walk on lakefront path from Wicked Twister to Magnum. People get so occupied by everything inside Cedar Point that they forget about the lakefront. You will get some great views and it's a nice way to break up your day.
  4. I agree that a new coaster is a few years away and I was just throwing out an idea for a possible front gate renovation. I didn't include Invertigo and Congo Falls because I think the Timberwolf Amphitheater would open up enough room. If more room is needed then Congo Falls could be relocated to Rivertown and Invertigo to X-Base. Those rides are small enough that they could be relocated to many places in the park. What I would like to see before any of this is a major thrill ride and we all know a dark ride is in the plans. I could see it going into The Crypt building, but it would need to be expanded. A slide complex for Soak City is another possibility.
  5. How often is the Timberwolf Amphitheater used? I always visit the park during Halloween Haunt when it isn't used. If a CP/Carowinds style front gate renovation was in the works then I think the Timberwolf Amphitheater would be sacrificed to make room for a coaster. I can't think of any other viable options.
  6. I was on board with the B&M rumor until "crazy airtime hills" was mentioned in the video. B&M doesn't make coasters with crazy airtime so this rumor doesn't hold water .
  7. I have a question somewhat related to the current discussion. Does anyone know if The Chiller is still in storage at Beto Carrero World? Rcdb still lists it as in storage, but that could be due to a lack of current information.
  8. I wouldn't be surprised if a standard or launched wing coaster is coming. Wing coasters seem to be gaining popularity and SFGAdv likes B&M. A wing coaster would also be unique to the region. I wouldn't get excited if this happened because the wing riders I have been on aren't too thrilling. My opinion doesn't matter and the park will add what they think will be a crowd pleaser. I love coasters so I would ride it every visit like I do with the other coasters. Here's what I would rather have the park add. If winged seating is desired, then a Intamin wing rider would be cool. I would be more in favor of an Intamin launched coaster in the likes of Maverick and iSpeed. One can dream.
  9. If I had to choose only one park then it would be Riverview Park in Chicago. Riverview had so many great looking rides and attractions. Everyone I have talked to who used to go their as kids loved it. It's a shame that one of the worlds most iconic parks is gone forever. Now the closest you can get to going to Riverview is walking on the remaining undeveloped property. You can walk on some of the midways and see some foundations. If you're in Chicago then I would recommend talking that walk. I know it will never happen, but I wish someone would take over the Riverview II project. That would be amazing
  10. I have only been on three stand ups and Mantis was my favorite. It has a good layout so that made standing up more enjoyable. I think the problem with stand ups is that people choose to sit rather than stand. You have to stand up in order to feel the strong gs on your legs and feet. It's a strange yet fun sensation. Plus you avoid the uncomfortable bicycle seat. Standing up is fun and uncommon, but I'll take a seated position any day. I'll miss Mantis, but I know Rougarou will be a superior ride. I think it may even end up being my favorite floorless.
  11. Mantis always had a line and now will have a longer one. Good luck with your marathoning:) Every time I've been to Cedar Point Mantis had a line. The shortest I ever saw it was 45 minutes and the longest was 2.5 hours. Usually it was always around 1.75 hours. That's why I was initially surprised that Mantis was getting new trains in order to improve the experience. I think an average 1.75 hour line suggests that people enjoyed the current experience and I include myself in that. As far as the marathon goes good luck. The only time I can see that being a possibility is on Fridays during Halloweekends. That's when I hope to get plenty of rides.
  12. Cedar Point - Disaster Transport, Wildcat Kiddieland(Illinois) Mt. Olympus - Opa Riverview Park and Waterworld - Galaxi Six Flags Great Adventure - Great American Scream Machine, Rolling Thunder Six Flags Great America - Deja Vu, Iron Wolf, Ragin Cajun, Rolling Thunder, Shockwave Six Flags Magic Mountain - Colossus, Flashback, Psyclone
  13. Edit: ^ Beat me to it. I'm excited to see what the concepts will be for Cedar Point and Kings Island. Cedar Point is probably a few years away from receiving a dark ride since it appears that a coaster is coming next year. Kings Island may be the next large park to get a dark ride, but that's just a hunch. I'm really intrigued about Michigan's Adventure possibly receiving a dark ride, simply due to it's size and location. I'll be surprised if Michigan's Adventure gets a dark ride and the concept should be interesting...
  14. The train route is far from scenic and it takes up a prime spot for expansion. I would love to see a multi year expansion in that area with a coaster and some flats. The train can always be rerouted, but it wouldn't be a big loss if it was removed. If a large attraction is coming next year then I hope there are signs before the season ends.
  15. I laughed when I saw the "makin' whoopie pies" sign. I would buy some just to say I "made whoopee" at an amusement park. I'm sure I'm not going to be the only immature person who thinks of this.
  16. Goliath is in Z-Force/Iron Wolf's former location. Batman: The Ride is in Tidal Wave's former location. Superman: Ultimate Flight is in Shockwave's former location. X-Flight is in Splashwater Falls/Great America Raceway's former location. Buccaneer Battle is in DejaVu/Sky Whirl/Haybaler's former location.
  17. I have only been to four Cedar Fair parks and here's my list. 1. Cedar Point 2. Kings Island 3. Dorney Park 4. Michigan's Adventure
  18. Thanks everyone for posting your reviews and pictures! This is the only surprising comment I have read so far. I assume it's been a while since you last rode Raging Bull With the exception of Banshee I know what to expect from B&M. Fun, but not thrilling coasters. I think Fury 325 looks like a lot of fun and I can't wait to ride it someday. I love airtime machines as much as the next guy, but it doesn't bother me that Fury 325 is more about speed. I also love speed machines like Millennium Force and Top Thrill Dragster. I know I'm going to like Fury 325 and I don't care if it doesn't end up in my top ten. I consider myself a jaded enthusiast and I enjoyed Disaster Transport for what it was. For those who have ridden Steel Dragon 2000, how does it compare to Fury 325?
  19. My SFMM name is Nuclear Jump and my BGW name is Leathery Fireball. Both are dumb, but I'm interested in how a leathery fireball would look. I haven't been following Tempesto too closely, but is there a problem with the local government that is keeping this from being announced publicly? I'm thinking that BGW might be in a similar situation that SFNE was in with the Dark Knight. This whole thing is odd and hopefully Tempesto operates this season.
  20. Son of Beast. I wish Montel could announce every coaster. In all seriousness I'll have to split this into two categories. Best lead up to an announcement - Thunderbird. It was fun reading the journal entries for over 60 days looking for clues. Construction was going on at the same time, which made it more fun. Best announcement - X. I chose X not for the spectacle, but for the ride itself. A 4D coaster was such a crazy idea and provided a one of a kind experience. I was so excited to go to SFMM in 2002 and ride X. I was very disappointed that I wasn't able to ride it and it still bothers me today. X is my great white buffalo and hopefully I can ride it someday.
  21. Unfortunately I'm on vacation with my parents and they only wanted to go to one park. BGT was the closest and I really wanted to ride Falcon's Fury. Some friends are jealous that I'm in Florida and they want to take a road trip sometime. When that happens we will definitely get Flex Passes and go to all the major parks.
