  1. So we have a Huss Breakdance and a Tornado water slide that need homes. I wonder why the Breakdance wasn't added to Carowinds like the original article stated. Also a random Trioka appeared for Dorney Park.

     

    Well, in the same article, it was stated that Cedar Fair was going to Japan next. So, maybe they found a Troika in Japan? Also, maybe the Huss Break Dance will be added to Carowinds in 2018. We'll just have to wait and see! I've enjoyed the announcements so far!

    ***JAPAN****??????

     

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE RELOCATE THIS!!!!!!

    I doubt that would happen, but it would be cool if Cedar Fair took one of the Ultra Twisters in Japan and moved it to one of the CF parks.

     

    Speaking of Ultra Twister, I heard that Premier Rides has Togo's Pipeline design. Can anyone confirm this?

    It'd be after replacement for the TOGO CW just lost.

  3. I mean its kinda grasping at straws, but maybe, juuuust maybe, construction on anything new in the land clearing around behemoth and Skyrider's grave hasn't begun due to the close proximity of the water park. Any trucks would kick up lots of dust posing a possible heath risk to the very packed Splash Works. I agree that this theory doesn't explain the lack of teasing for 2017, but you never know. Thoughts?

    Doubt we'll be getting anything big, but people also have to remember that other large announcements haven't happened until the very end of August (ie. Guardian).

  4. ^seems like a good idea... But also a little odd. Everything I've read about how the trucks run in Europe makes it seem like their regulations are more restrictive. Plus, laws asside, the roads in Europe are much narrower (and older, I'd imagine) in Europe. Seems like the US roads by design are made to carry larger loads, not smaller ones.

     

    Either way, this ride looks fantastic. If a Travelling version won't be allowed into North America, let's hope a park model gets built.

  5. ^Guessing it's not even road legal to travel in the U.S. (too heavy). Looks amazing!

    Any reason the weight limits for big rigs are different between the U.S. and Germany/Europe? I looked it up, and can't find much information.

     

    Just curious, as whenever these new flat rides are built, the topic of them always being too heavy to be allowed to travel the u.S. Is brought up.

  6. Have any other Master Blaster style rides been closed for further investigation out there in the world? I know Veruckt is a completely different animal with it's size and speed and airtime, and the the rafts are entirely different than the standard rafts with the restraints, but there are a ton of master blaster rides out there in the world and mostly all of them have a similar net structure around the exposed portions of the slide.

     

    Heck I rode one two weeks ago with my daughter in the front of the raft, and while the jets on that one are not nearly forceful enough to lift my fat butt out of the slide path it kinda makes me wonder if two smaller kids were to ride one could the combination of conditions and forces and whatever other human factor are in play could something like this happen on a slide with a 15 foot drop instead of a 50 foot drop?

    That's my question as well... Why do all the Master Blaster/rocket slides use netting?... Doesn't make sense.

  7. According to astrology/horoscope websites, 2017 is the year of the "Ziz". The ancient prophecy states that "Canada'sWonderland shall avenge the loss in 2016 brought upon them by Cedar Point". It goes on to further explain that B&M will likely assist in fulfilling this prophecy through the building of a wing rider".

    Sites I found on the Yahoo.com, Bing.com and Blackle.com search engines

  8. Only been on the aqualoop/whitewater version, and loved every part of the ride except for the loop (ended up with a few scratches on my back going through that section. The loop also seemed to add to the wait times a fair bit, as people would get stuck quite frequently when I was there. Finally, anothers have pointed out, it seems as though a lot of the whitewater slides are "one trick ponies", and save the elements like boomerango sections and loops till the very end... Proslide always seems to have multiple tricks up their sleve.

     

    All that being said, if my home waterpark (Bingemans) adds any drop pod slide by any manufacturer, I'll be very happy. The drop is far more thrilling than a traditional free fall slide, and I'd even go so far as to say that it outranks some of the coaster drops I've been on.

  9. I'm not sure you understood the question but I like your take on it regardless.

    Pretty sure I got "spayed" once while trying to board a WindSeeker. It's not like I'm short-legged or anything so not sure how I managed to clock myself like that. Same thing when the restraint on Riddler's Revenge clicks up a notch too high (I'm always the one person who has trouble adjusting it right). TMI? Sorry!

    So true... The reason I don't like windaeekers.

     

    My manhood was fine on the Togo standup next door, but the Windseeker was another story.

  10. ^^Expect even Dorney has a better coaster collection.

     

    Dorney has half the coasters of Canada's Wonderland. The last time that they received a new coaster which was not relocated was 2005, the year before Cedar Fair purchased Canada's Wonderland.

     

    Would you have preferred a used Vekoma inverted boomerang and a used Intamin impulse over Behemoth and Leviathan?

    Used boomerang no, used impulse maybe.
