California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread

P. 476: Cedar Fair sells park land, CGA to close within the next 11 years

Recommended Posts

I have VERY high hopes for this ride, and it will get me back to CGA for the first time in many years! Thanks to those that took the pics.

 

I don't recall a huge uprising with the Whizzer's removal at all. I think for many people around my age, the Whizzer was their first 'real' coaster, as it was a stepping stone up to Turn Of The Century/Demon and the Tidal Wave.

 

It's like we were writing the same thing at the same time - see my post below yours.

What I'm looking the most forward to from the announcement is the virtual POV. I'm definitely itching to see how the rest of the layout got tweaked after I saw the modified Prudential turn!

 

 

That's what I most curious about also, what also has me really interested is "Striking New Records"! Its really bugging me at what the records might be.

How about fastest and steepest wooden coaster with the most crossovers in northern California? New records are not always world records.

I thought this was going to have some caves n stuff. I guess evidence of this might not show up till more construction is done but it doesn't look like there is any extra foundation for some rock work in the middle potion of the ride. Hope hope it's more than just the station, or just part of the line. This ride is supposed to be themed so some extent though.

 

When does this park shut down or operate on weekends only or whatever they do? I would expect the station, lift and first drop construction to start around then.

Weekend-only operation is in the off-season.

 

Here's a link to the calendar

 

I stumbled upon this image of I think it is some app, but it looks really nice. You can see all the employee pathways and everything:

Quick Saturday update: Au13 is looking great (but I think we already knew that). It's starting to change the skyline, you can see it in many different parts in the park. Riding White Water Falls gives an amazing close-up view!

Where did the wall go? (Actually, I put the camera underneath it).
