  1. The thing is, this invert is being built AWAY from the main rides section (the clump of beautiful, tangled coaster mess along the boardwalk). The land has always been there but no one bothered to think Grona would use it for a new coaster.
  2. I'm fully expecting another overpriced walkthrough or some other "groundbreaking experience" or something that won't have full actors 80% of the time and will be closed after like 3 years Aw, come on man! Have you heard about the Project 2020 document? I’m expecting a document to be filed around this time if it is a coaster. Those folks over at Thorpe haven’t had a new coaster in seven long years!
  3. Well, now we know where that next big coaster is going ! Stinks to lose a log flume but...
  4. Hey hey hey, that’s not a bad thing Just heard Piano Man on the radio this morning, as a matter of fact.
  5. Oh wow, I never rode this rapids ride. Walked by it several times. It was in such a prime location for a coaster to be honest— lots of land, near the front gate, you could always make it interact with Fury if need be. A log flume running under Fury would be amazing, and give the park a much-needed successor to Thornberrys after they tore down Whitewater Falls.
  6. Please! Don’t take another skyride away from us just because some GP kid got scared on a breakdown, especially one that sounds so pretty going over the bay and all!
  7. I think I might’ve gone to World Waterpark as a young child... I might be going back to Edmonton to visit family this summer and that means an excuse for me to ride my #5 coaster and visit this amazing looking waterpark.
  8. I feel pity for the Minnesotan coaster enthusiasts... even the super landlocked Nickelodeon Universe has a higher chance of getting a new coaster than Valleyfair. If a Zierer Tivoli does have to be replaced, whatever goes in its relative spot has to be even better.
  9. YES, KNOEBELS!! Love that place to death . Should be tons for her to do there. I was shocked by how many rides Knoebels has outside of the coasters, it feels like the amount you’d find at a major park like Kings Island or Cedar Point. Knoebels especially has an entire Kiddieland and the rides in the majority of the park are fun for the entire family— only a few of the flats, Twister and Impulse are what I’d call too intense for some.
  10. Definitely MARCH Copperhead Strike Passholder Preview Day (Carowinds is my current homepark) APRIL Busch Gardens Tampa Bay (former homepark, haven’t been back since 2015!!) SeaWorld Orlando SUMMER Carowinds Six Flags Over Georgia Maybe SUMMER Galaxyland (Last time visited was 2017, before that 2012 and before that ages ago)
  11. Oh look it’s my boy Galaxyland! That one underrated park that nobody ever talks about, even with an incredible Schwarzkopf crammed inside it! I’ve been here multiple times— I have family in Edmonton and I have gone to this park since I was little. I rode Mindbender in July 2017, and it became my favorite coaster of all time for a few weeks besting Fury, Skyrush, Mako and Lightning Rod. You just have to lean forward on the restraints and get your neck above the “Accordions of Death”.
  12. Yeah nope. Park plans are finalized several years in advance. ICON at Blackpool Pleasure Beach was under planning for 5 years or more iirc. Don’t expect anything to be coming to that site for, oh I dunno, 2022 at the earliest?
  13. I’ve ridden Pepsi’s sister coaster, Autosled at Galaxyland, and it would suck to lose what is essentially a park monorail in the form of a cred. But I do hope that whatever goes in its spot will be good (A Chance family coaster like Slime Streak going to Nickelodeon Universe N.J. would be a well-fitting replacement and update, or maybe the station to a multilaunch coaster that winds around Nickelodeon Universe? Let’s hope it’s not another playground...).
  14. Yeah I thought Slidewinder was gone. My guess is that given its prime hillside location, perhaps a new MACK launch coaster ala Time Traveler is in store? I do have to wonder if Slidewinder is actually in the process of being dismantled or if it will just sit dormant until the park finds a reason to re purpose the land? EDIT: Fixed it myself. I just realized my screwup, thanks!
  15. Should be quite an exhilirating sight from Racer, amplified by the fact that nothing around the coaster comes close to the whopping 220’ in the air that Steel Curtain is.
  16. I went to Knoebels in August 2017 (Favorite park of all time, by the way— I came in expecting a permanent fairground setup with some decent coasters and came out shocked) for around five hours, and I didn’t even visit Kiddieland with its extensive collection of rides or the Black Diamond area with the Mining Museum. Also, I am ashamed that I missed out on 3 sets of antique cars, as just two days post-Knoebels I started a love of antique cars after riding Blue Ridge Tollway at Kings Dominion. It’d be easy to spend an entire day at the park to be honest, and maybe check out the waterpark too, I know I would never be bored for a second.
  17. I know this isn’t what you meant, but remembering the three names that were trademarked for Tigris (Tigris, Uproar, Twisted Tiger), I’d make a safe bet on RMC Gwazi’s actual name being Uproar. Twisted Tiger is the more logical choice (hence Twisted Cyclone, Twisted Timbers, Twisted Colossus), but that sounds a bit too similar to Tigris. If the 212’ lift hill with the 91° drop rumors from First Drop are true, Uproar would make lots of sense given that the coaster would be the tallest in Florida.
  18. So in 2016, I took two of my friends to Carowinds. We had a great time, one of them even worked up the courage to ride Fury with me as his first roller coaster ever— and later the other rode Afterburn with me. After the visit I asked them why they hadn’t ridden Intimidator. Their response, “It’s taller than the Fury!” And I nearly laughed, as I explained to them that Intimidator was nearly 100 feet shorter than Fury. Oh yeah, and on a later visit I walked along the path that runs under Nighthawk. A GP proclaimed as he exited Nighthawk, “That’s the best roller coaster I’ve ever ridden!” I began laughing, but my group shut me up.
  19. To be honest, as a Carolinian born & raised in Florida, I’d be thrilled to see the region get another park. Some mid-sized park, ala Knoebels (my favorite amusement park of all time <3) or even a smaller one like Fun Spot would be great. I’d love to see a Gravity Group kids wooden coaster come to this new park (even though in the Carolinas we have Swamp Fox, Phoenix’s often-forgotten Southern cousin), as well as some ride models that Carowinds doesn’t have. A Chance Hyper GTX, perhaps?
