  1. Nah, this makes the park more attractive to be purchased by CF in the future.
  2. This is nothing but opinion based on my own experience. I worked Grizzly Run at GL for 4 seasons. We had rafts flip a few times, never with guests (while I worked there). They would only flip when water levels were too low. Causing the raft to hit the bottom or something and flip. Again, not stating that what occurred on one ride 20 years ago is the same cause that occurred on this ride. Just my first had experience from being an operator of a raft ride.
  3. This was me. My family had a cruise scheduled for November 2020. Obviously canceled. I was put in charge of rescheduling and chose August 2022 just to be safe.
  4. I’m still sticking with my original thought of either: Dollywood, SDC, or Holiday World. In rough order of somewhat likely to least likely. Someone mentioned Morey’s a while back. I’m agreeing with this as a fun wildcard. But at the end of the day. Until a park starts showing some signs of construction or a tease campaign there’s nothing concrete to go off of.
  5. It may not be super creative but it’ll be sure to quickly pop up in google searches when people search “Niagara Falls.” Still shocked this is happening again and it’s the same company saving these parks. Good luck to them and I hope it’s successful and they’re not biting off more than they can chew too quickly.
  6. ^I think any new coaster would be amazing here. But a Raptor clone or a small Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter (like Tantrum at SFDL) would especially be perfect. I'd even settle for a GG family woodie! I have a feeling within the next year or 3 we will see a major dry ride addition at this park. I have loved watching this park come back to life and grow each year.
  7. Fastlane has always been advertised as "wait less, ride more." Regardless of how much you pay for it, as long as your wait is less than the stand-by wait you're getting what you paid for. It's the risk you take. Especially this season with how awful staffing will be. I know it sucks. It sucks to have to wait 30-45 mins in Fastlane but that's a hecking lot better than waiting 2+ hours in stand-by.
  8. The older of the two lazy rivers is not heated. So it is always cold. Helps make it feel more like being in Lake Erie for reals. lol
  9. I think if we learned anything from 2020 is that politicians never really or hardly ever do what's in the best interest for their constituents, their cities, etc.
  10. In North American English it can be used as a modifier: But, you are correct it is spelled wrong. lol Sorry, not trying to be a d**k, you sparked an interest so I looked it up. Back on topic.. personally I am hoping this is not a Raptor clone but a custom family coaster. I'd really like to see on of those pop up and at a FEC too would be pretty cool. Since their announcement mentions the design phase I'm hoping that's a hint it won't be a plug and play clone of any sort but a custom layout.
  11. Vague on details. So it'll be interesting to see what's built. Custom Raptor? Raptor clone? Newly announced family coaster. Another fun project to watch for 2022!
  12. I still really hate the trend of SF putting "coaster" in all the newer ride names. Whoever is on their marketing team that thought that was a good idea.. I dislike you very much and I hope you get diarrhea.
  13. "Yea but we didn't get ANYTHING THIS YEAR. So the park is pitiful!" (don't look at all the S&S Freespin pieces in the parking lot) It's not uncommon for rides or sections of parks to close down for future expansion. I wouldn't be too concerned considering we all know a coaster is about to be built and there are probably even more additions coming. Knowing CF completely removed Mean Streak from maps while Steel Vengeance was under construction I seriously doubt the ride is being removed (yet, it will one day). I am in agreement they chose to save money and keep it closed this season while working on whatever plans they have for that area.
  14. ^Hoping that was not another attempt at a haiku... Yay..boats. Actually I'm pretty excited for this. I enjoyed Paddlewheel.
  15. Surprised no one has mentioned the very obvious, that removing Grizzly Run is an obvious indicator for an "rMc RaPtOr 2 b InStalLeD!!1!!!" It's an obvious clue. I guess the enthusiast community is being lazy now... Personally, I just hope any cost savings this brings can allow the park to acquire second trains for the coasters they do have.. but that's a crack pipe dream too.
  16. Even when this ride was at GL it had a reputation for being the "smoothest" of the bunch. I never really had a problem with this ride going back to it's GL days. Always thought it was a comfortable ride. The other few I have been on include Great Nor'Easter, Flight Deck @CW, Mind Eraser at DL, and T3 most of which is awful. I never experienced Great Nor'Easter prior to the retrack but I thought it was very comfortable with the new track and trains. Now, the other 3 listed I will never get on again, ever. Unless something dramatic happens. Heard some good things about the new trains on whatever SFNE is calling theirs these days. Back to this ride, I dig the new colors, looks wonderful. Slightly disappointed it didn't get the original 90s teal supports, but this is good too.
  17. This is obviously for the new ride at CP next year. It will duel the Gerstlauer coaster that was leaked. That is how that ride will be a "challenging" install. The two builders will race to see who can place their track pieces first. The IMA score leak proves my theory.
  18. Fastlane has always been fluid, I wouldn't be surprised to see the price go lower if it didn't sell well for the day or even higher if the demand is there.
  19. I'll play the guessing game. Guess 1: Cedar Point - Because point and for some reason they want to ignore the fact they need something other than a "record breaking ride." Personally I'd much rather see a GG family woodie capable of two train op built somewhere near Planet Snoopy/Kiddie Kingdom than what this could be.. but we'll see. Guess 2: Dollywood - Cause why not? Talk about location challenges and what not. Phase 2 of Wildwood Grove could use a nice big signature ride, one that operates consistently. Guess 3: Holiday World - Cause I feel like it's time for a new coaster here after Thunderbird. And a more "traditional" sit down looper would be nice. Be fun to watch. I wasn't expecting much in capex for 2022 due to Covid, so seeing an announcement for a "record breaker" is intriguing.
  20. Definitely a cool and umm.. unique way to market these carnival rides at a park. I do look at it as thinking outside the box. CF made a pretty big deal about going out and getting retro rides and returning them to the parks. But not much came of it after that first year. I wouldn't mind seeing this happen at some American parks. Especially if it helps keep some of the traveling fairs in business while things slowly normalize throughout the next year or two.
  21. Fingers crossed for a classic red track and teal support color scheme!
