  1. The relocated coasters from Geauga Lake were nowhere near 27 years old, I believe there were all less than 10 years old. Of course it makes sense to move coasters from a closed park when the coasters still have years left in them. How about you read the thread to figure out that I was trying to make a point, or just 'ef off. Someone mentioned that Matt Ouimet's regime does not like to relocate rides. Someone argued, then what would you call Carolina Cobras? (implying that it was relocated), and so I replied emphasizing that even though it was relocated, it was relocated at a time when Matt Ouimet was not the CEO. My point is that it was common for rides to be relocated then, not just from Geauga Lake, but not now, thus agreeing with the original poster who said Matt Ouimet's regime does not like to relocate rides.
  2. Geauga Lake, but that was long before Matt Ouimet took over Cedar Fair. Back then ride relocations were pretty common.
  3. Valleyfair will never get a WinterFest event, and it's the same reason why the flagship park of the company won't be getting one; the terrible winter weather. Don't hold your breath.
  4. First time ever in the Bay Area, and first time ever at CGA. Just happened to go during opening night of Winterfest. Absolutely loved it! It was done really well. Gold Striker was amazing, smooth, forceful, and so far the best GCI coaster I've been on. Flight Deck was very fun at night. CGA was millions better than the other park in the Bay Area ... and even though Joker was really fun, it's probably ranked as my least Favorite RMC to date.
  5. My guess is these are very likely, and they are almost exactly what was promoted for Valravn: tallest, fastest, longest hybrid roller coaster, and longest drop and steepest drop on a hybrid coaster. Other obscure ones would be: most track at one park, most steel track at one park, most rides in one park, and possibly most coasters over 200 in one park. Other possible ones I can think of (depending on if this will be predominantly air time driven or inversions, either most air time moments on a coaster or most inversions on a hybrid coaster.
  6. Check out Coaster-Nation's tweet. Not sure how to post it here from twitter's app
  7. Thanks, can you tell me if Riptide is SBNO or if it has been completely taken out?
  8. So now three areas lay idle: screaming swing, Ripetide, and wipeout. Looking at a map, it looks like they are freeing up space spanning from wipeout to Screaming Swing, assuming they're planning to take out Boomerang. Could be large enough for a major coaster.
  9. Anybody see the wager between Six Flags Great America and Cedar Point? I think it will be hilarious if the Cubs won and Cedar Point had to rename Dragster to Kinga Ka
  10. Here's one that's slightly more accurate. The poster who said it was closer to Coasters is right.
  11. If any coaster needs to be RMC'ed at MiA, it's Wildcat. Then there wood (pun intended) be a great one/two punch with Timbers.
  12. I'd rather there be no inversions, only because it's been since TTD in 2003 since we've last gotten a coaster without em.
  13. The problem with the Raptor track is it's only designed for a capacity of around 500-600 per hour (remember, it only seats 1 across). For a park like Knott's, that doesn't make much sense. T-Rex track I can see though.
