  1. This is a bit of old news right now, but Owa released concept images for the new waterpark. Not going to lie, this is a great-looking indoor waterpark with a nice collection of slides. This expansion may use most of the expansion directly next to the amusement park, but I think this is a smart move. Waterparks tend to have a high return on investment with a minimal amount of expansion required to keep drawing in decent crowds. It will probably end up being a bigger draw for Owa than the amusement park. Hopefully, this will attract enough people to Owa to get larger crowds in the amusement par
  2. Damn didn't even catch that. Either way, it looks like they plan to build a family coaster across from Kanonen and it looks like it could potentially be a Roller Skater. Though it would be pretty cool if they got a SFC like Steel Lasso at Frontier City.
  3. OMG I am so excited for this park. If anything, just because I love Lost Island. I ordered a Lost Island sweatshirt off of their website and it just came in the mail. They had wrapped the package in tissue paper, and they enclosed a brochure as well as a handwritten thank you note. It's little things like that that show that the Bertch family takes pride in their park and that the same pride is felt throughout the company. I'm about to become the biggest Lost Island Theme Park cheerleader out there. I mean the park already has a great starting line up of attractions. If the site plans are co
  4. It looks to be an SBF one. Thank the lord it looks to have a great storyline at least since the ride itself will not be that exciting.
  5. And Celebration City. Personally, I hope that this sale isn't true. I mean Herschend also operated Darien Lake and Elitch Gardens. The greatest thing to come to Darien Lake during their time was a Moose on the Loose and a super loop. The greatest thing to come to Elitch Gardens during their time was a used kiddie coaster, a waterslide, and a super loop. I just really don't see anything great coming out of Herschend operating Kentucky Kingdom. It would be GREAT to see massive, themed coasters and experiences like Dollywood or Silver Dollar City, but I see it being more likely that this park wou
  6. Well, Clementon Park is going to auction. Something tells me that we will see at least a couple attractions from that park make their way to Alabama Adventure. There isn't much that I could see being at this park, however I do see them potentially getting that Ferris Wheel or Carousel, or I'd even like to see them get that Zamperla Samba Tower for the park's kiddie area. I also wouldn't mind seeing them get that Torpedo Rush slide tower from Clementon Park. I know it they both just have vertical layouts, which seems redundant with Freefall, but I feel like if they put it over by Rocket Racer,
  7. I LOVE this, I want to see more Merlin parks like Alton Towers, Chessington, and Thorpe Park come to the United States or North America. I just love the themeing that they put into each new ride! However, I wish they did choose something a little more thrilling to replace Rameses Revenge. Maybe something like a Top Scan, Star Shape, or even a Frisbee. Either way, love this for them!
  8. I will be so mad if they don't do an "Everyone loves Marineland" commercial for Star Voyager.
  9. I've heard some coaster YouTubers call it rough, but honest to god I don't think it is very rough. I mean you can tell that it is a wooden coaster, but it definitely feels smoother than many GCI's and most CCI's. I think people have been calling it rough just since it nearly felt like a steel coaster in 2013 and now it is actually starting to feel like a wood coaster. I've heard some Youtubers describe the same situation with El Toro.
  10. Brandon from Amusement Insiders mentioned that he was told by the park that they were interested in a Windseeker attraction. He tripped up and started to say Sky Screamer (Funtime), but he corrected himself and said Windseeker, making me think that the park would specifically want to go with a Mondial version. IF that is true, then it certainly would give them another tall ride you could see from the falls. Plus it would give a great observational view from the top where you could see the falls. I'd like that to be true, but I would have thought that they would go with a Funtime version to dif
  11. I mean the family that owns the park has multiple other properties and other business ventures, so something tells me they are pouring money from their other businesses into the park, trying to get it to the point where the park is more.... profitable. I just can't imagine that this park is very profitable as is. Honestly, something that I think would just make this park feel more..... normal is a people mover system like a monorail that drops guests off at Arctic Cove, Blackbear Country, The Aquarium Dome, the kid's area, and then Friendship Cove. Then maybe like a chairlift up to the top of
  12. Why I'm getting so excited, and I'm sure this is why others are too, is because there actually looks to be major growth in the works for this park. I mean after years of getting nothing, they have all of a sudden opened up 4 acre, heavily themed splash park, added trams to take guests around the park, a brand-new penguin exhibit, a thrill ride, and a family ride, but all in a matter of what will be two full seasons. Now they have submitted the request to be able to build higher. It's just fun to speculate what growth will be for a park when we have never really seen it expand before. I mean it
  13. Looking at the plot of land, I almost like the idea of a dark ride there. It is so close to the maintenance area that I wouldn't want to have a tall ride that would put that area in full view for the guests. Though I have always wanted to see a vertical swing attraction at Silver Dollar City. I feel like it will probably be just an expansion of the maintenance area. However, if it was a ride, I'd like to see it be a dark ride/indoor coaster or maybe some kind of thrill ride. Like I would love to see some sort of frisbee ride at the park.
  14. Honestly, I wouldn't be mad if one of the new coasters was a 4D Freespin. I actually find them really enjoyable and fun! Plus, I mean when Marineland DOES add something new, they usually don't skimp out on that investment; it would probably have all the magnetic fins like Arashi. Plus they would probably dress up the ride pretty nice just like they did with Polar Splash and one of their most recent flat rides, Ocean Odyssey. But honestly, anything to start filling out the park would make me happy!
