  1. I wonder if carowinds will add a dry water ride like this? I know that many of you think that dry water rides are really not needed in theme parks anymore but I have to disagree. I still think their are many people out their that still would love to go on dry water rides. Like why are we seeing Mystic River Falls being built at Silver Dollar City even though it won’t be opening anytime soon due to the virus. But many people still like these rides especially in southern states where it gets extremely hot. I personally think the coaster/water ride hybrid is a good idea and they should start cloning in other parks in the USA. We are seeing dry water rides excel in other international parks overseas not so much in the USA.
  2. Sorry for my grammar but I just was wondering does Six Flags Over Georgia have a bright future in terms of adding new roller coasters and thrill rides? I see splash water falls still isn’t operating does anyone know what could go their for a future replacement? I’ve heard on other forums that six flags over Georgia does lack water rides. Because of the brutal heat in Georgia do they have space to add a water ride or two?
  3. I know I’m definitely not getting my point across here with the possibility of a theme park coming to Austin. No I don’t desperately want a theme park in Austin. I’m just looking at the city’s statistics. It’s a growing metro with almost 1 million people coming to the city in the next decade. It is bigger than most US cities being the 11 largest. San Antonio being right down the road is probably hurting Austin by not getting a new park anytime soon. I don’t know anything about Texas never been you say Texans are used to driving long hours I believe never thought what you said was a complete lie. I just think something like ZDT amusement park the size of that would suffice. The majority of you think Austin doesn’t need a park. Your right it’s a college town, arts, a good place for music lovers why mess that up with an addition of a new theme park I get it.
  4. Do you consider Six Flags and Seaworld your home parks because you relocated to Austin if your a theme park enthusiast I know it’s weird that the city doesn’t have a theme park do you find the drive stressful to drive an 1hour or 2?
  5. why can't Carowinds buy more property to build more coasters/thrill rides in the next few decades? Like Cedar Point and California's Great America is expanding with more land. Why can't Carowinds? I mean are they just going to tear down rides and replace them with new ones? They don't have space to increase their roller coaster count to compete with other theme parks?
  6. I notice yes Carowinds is the only major theme park in the Carolinas but could both states in the future support another park in either SC or NC? Whirlwig woods was supposed to come to Saxaphaw. Hard Rock Park fell apart. Their just seems to be A huge gap with no theme park presence in the Raleigh/Durham area for example just to support a small park. And South Carolina has none.
  7. So is this it carowinds new ride is just going to be a Matt racers slide for 2020? Nothing new will be announced in 2020 I mean yes their is a show coming but nothing in the dry park? Carowinds didn’t even have a announcement date for the new ride they just announced it. Usually they do this before announce new attractions right? What about dinosaurs alive and rip roaring rapids?
  8. I hope carowinds gets a water coaster like this one day I think theme parks should start looking at a water ride/roller coaster combo like this......
  9. I heard the new rumored ride going into Carowinds next year could be a zamperla ride according to coaster net I am Not sure if these rumors are strong or not. If this is the case to me it would kinda suck since the park still doesn’t have a single water ride in their dry section of the park. Rip roaring rapids I guess will continue to sit their unused since the parts of the raft ride still remain. People can go to the waterpark sure but not having one single water ride in the park sounds weird. Carowinds might be the only theme park in the country without a dry water ride at all. Yes water rides are fading away at dry parks but I don’t think they need to totally disappear for good. I’m hoping that the Mack power splash will be a success since it seems like it will be coming to Six Flags Over Texas. If it does well I hope this new type of water ride will start to go to other theme parks around the country. Mack power splashes and super splashes have yet to make their debut in the states for some strange reason.
  10. I’m curious as to what they’ll do with rip roaring rapids since the ride is indeed closed parts of the ride still remain at the park. So I’m wondering will they do an update like they did to the raft water ride at Knotts Berry Farm or tear it down completely and replace it with a roller coaster or thrill ride or a flat ride. Carowinds doesn’t have anymore water rides if the rip roaring rapids go not talking about the water park either. So will the park just go without dry water rides in the park. Not even a flume ride for the future?
  11. Well since the majority of you think that Austin for sure is not getting a theme park let me move on to my next question Cedar Fair has recently acquired Schlitterbahn in new Braunfels and Galveston what is the likely that in the near future since Cedar Fair has found a home in Texas could they expand and build on their current properties in New Braunfels and Galveston Schlitterbahn locations? Whether it’s a theme park combined with a water park or a more expanded waterpark?
  12. I was just wondering if you had to choose is Disney or Universal likely to build another third US location for a themed resort? And where could it be? Texas???
  13. Their have been talks over the years of a Disney park coming to Texas do you think it could work? Houston? Dallas? San Antonio? Or Austin? A user on a Disney Parks forum created a vision on what a future Disneyland Texas resort would look like it was pretty interesting. I say this is because Disney could expand with another themed resort in the United States. Across the world Disney has also succeeded with other theme park resorts in Europe & Asia but I think one more Disney location can work in the U.S. I think Texas can work. This rumor once again has been going on for quite some time.
  14. I know this isn’t likely but for the upcoming rumored third/fourth park at Universal Orlando Resort tentatively called Fantastic Worlds or Epic Universe their have been a number of possible new worlds that could come to this new park like Super Nintendo World, Universal Classic Monsters, DreamWorks, Fantastic Beasts(more Potter), possibly Jurassic World depending on what happens to JP themed land at IOA, Middle Earth/LOTR, Star Trek, their seems to be a number of possibilities that would make great themed worlds but I had one in mind that will definitely lease likely not happen but it would be awesome. Revive Universal older IP’s like Jaws, King Kong again with Monsterverse, Earthquake, Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Twister, Terminator, Waterworld, etc. Perhaps update them with newer technology and up to date animatronics instead of 3D glasses and projected screens hopefully we won’t see as much of this in the new park. But their could be new stories to tell with Back to the Future as an example create a Hill Valley area or a wild western themed section from Back to the Future Part 3. Jaws could be a themed New England setting riding Quint’s Orca boat as a E-ticket attraction possibly. If The Meg does well from Warner Bros which is expecting a sequel you never know what could happen with Jaws it could spark interest of making another Jaws movie. As for Ghostbusters and Terminator they are getting new movies too so we’ll see. Earthquake was supposed to get a new movie directed by JJ Abrams but failed. I’d like to see earthquake though created as a San Francisco setting riding a trolley car waiting for the earthquake to happen! Just my dreams on here.
  15. Is it just me but isn’t Six Flags parks due for new water rides, tower drop rides and new types of roller coasters in their park? I don’t know what SFOG has in mind for next year but I heard in a survey they could be interested in a Mack power splash but I don’t know how safe splashwater falls chutes rides is for the near future. I’m wondering if Six Flags will have new rides going forward on their next DC superhero Aquaman since we’ve seen rides based on cyborg, Harley Quinn, Wonder Woman, even Batman 4D free spin coaster, Superman not so much but I want to see if they will come out with new rides based on aquaman we will have to wait in see for 2020 if they focus on Arthur Curry.
