There is another possibility with regards to the monorail station demolition. Part of what Hersheypark bought from SFMM when they bought the monorails was the rotary switch section of the track, which they were going to get later. If I'm not mistaken, that section of track was next to this station. It's possible it was time for SFMM to pull that section of track out for Hersheypark and they just decided to demo the station while they were already there with the equipment.

After seeing the Log Jammer area again on the pic a few pages back I'm going to say again, Intamin Blitz and/or Rocket ala Storm Runner meets Maverick. I think this would be perfect for that area, there's a bit of terrain to play with, some elevation changes and it could interact with S:EFK and Gold Rusher at points.

I do hope that whatever SFMM gets next is a launcher - it seems crazy that a park with so many coasters only has one (two sides, but still) ride that launches, and even it isn't even a normal launch anymore (or a full circuit)! An accelerator would be a great fit, and maybe it could even break some sort of record - most inversions on a launched ride or something like that. Gotta make it "Xtreme"!

I'm hoping no inversions though, unless they are ones the park has not done yet. Is there an inversion left the park hasn't done like twice?

 

 

What about a woody with a loop? I hear that's never been done before.*

Things like Storm Runner's flying snake dive or a rapid barrel roll like iSpeed would definitely be different than anything the park's current lineup has to offer. There's a lot of cool ways you can get people upside down, you just have to get creative!

The park doesn't have an Immelman, but still I hope what ever is planned for 2013 has no inversions.

 

I think some reasons SFMM hasn't installed another launched coaster is b/c of the cost to operate a launched coaster. They already have a money hog with S:EFK electricity is expensive in CA, and knowing SFMM they would probably want a launched coaster that would top S:EFK launch or at least top Xcels and with LIM/LSM that's expensive. Then the second option is the Rocket or Air launched coaster, that could get them the extreme speed the park would like but it's a big risk since both of these models are not known for being reliable and are maintenance nightmares. I could be completely and totally wrong on this though lol

 

All I want is an Intamin Giga after that they can get all the launched coasters and inversions they want

I hope it does have inversions.... I mean why not? And.... you might as well!

 

In a park that holds the record for inversions with what 32 or 33 total why on Earth would you want another inversion in this place The park is starving for airtime not another loopy de loop imo

What ever happened to the dive machine coming to SFMM.

 

Honestly, I hope that SFMM gets a Intamin giga in Deja Vu's spot, an Aquatrax in Log Jammer's spot, and hopefully something new for SFHH in Flashback's spot. By the way, when was the last time SFHH got a new slide or play area. Although a launching coaster wouldn't be bad.

Tornando is the last "ride" i can remember them getting, which opened in 04.

^ I thought it was Mr. Six's Play area, but I could be wrong.

but I'm talking about a slide. the play area is pretty much a kids area, and is just an updated version of what it replaced. I hope we can get a really good slide or One of the launching body slides

I'd like to see both a Log Jammer replacement coaster and a new slide for Hurricane Harbor in 2013. I definitely agree that a terrain launcher from Intamin is probably the best option. My dad said he thought a combination of Maverick and Cheetah Hunt would be a great fit, and I agree...no more than 100 ft tall, multiple launches, tunnel through the mountain, maybe one or two inversions but not inversion focused, and plenty of airtime and twists. As for Hurricane Harbor, I would like to see them get a Proslide Rocket where Flashback used to be but I'd be happy with any major slide. It might convince me to visit again.

 

For a Deja Vu replacement, I think it would be nice for them to install something back there in 2014. Perhaps a couple flats and/or a smaller, family friendly coaster that doesn't exist in the US (I keep thinking Gerstlaurer Bobsled but I don't think that would be high enough capacity). They could also replace Thrill Shot with some sort of flat ride as well that year, and completely retheme that part of the park.

 

As good as rides like an Intamin Giga or a B&M Diving Machine are, I really don't think SFMM needs them. They already have coasters with large and steep drops, and both of those rides would be extremely expensive. Perhaps when it is time to retire Viper they could place one there and run it along that side of the park, but I really don't want to see the hill dominated by such a large ride.

You can have airtime and inversions on the same ride. I know, crazy thought. But if this thing's an Intamin, there's a pretty good chance you're gonna get your fill of airtime regardless of what the rest of the ride does.

Why do I feel it will be a one of a kind coaster (like X was, and how like Green Lantern is a unique coaster?)

Inversions are OK, as long as they don't replace airtime. Maverick is a perfect example. I hope to see a terrain version of this, hopefully with pioneer theming in High Sierra Territory!

 

See, you can have inversions and airtime too, but go heavy on the airtime.
