California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

They just need some nice addition. I feel like they are still one of the worst Cedar Fair parks, not because of rides, but because of water slides. Like DP has Wildwater Kingdom, WOF has Oceans of Funs, and Michigan's Adventure has Wildwater Adventure.

 

All the water parks you listed are over ten years older than Boomerang Bay. I'd give Boomerang Bay some time to expand.

You know, a Zamperla Air Race would look nice in the Invertigarden location.

 

I've been saying that for quite awhile, almost since the air race made its debut. The closest one to us is at Lagoon and im not about to travel all the way to Utah.

 

They are making their way around, just not in the U.S. quite yet. One thing I think people don't realize is how low capacity the ride is. On Zamperla's website, it states it's only 480 pph. They could do the 8-arm version to increase the capacity, but it would still only by 600 pph. I believe that's why they aren't popping up everywhere.

That could be why, but CGA still has some low capacity flats, such as Flying eagles because people like to have a bird to themselves. But it's just a pipeline dream right now.

I think they could do a duo installation. Each turning in opposite directions. Similar to how S&S install duo towers.

That's kinda what I was thinking too. It would look pretty cool to see them "Dueling" and it would increase capacity.

It would be really cool if they went for the triple dueling, and had one above the other two facing down at them. And it would also triple the capacity.

Boomerang Bay additions...Yes, definitely! One thing I can see happening is a set of mat racers between Rapids and the 2 "Manteca Water Slides" as well as maybe building more off the Didgeridoo Falls tower (Drop capsule slide anyone?) Small waterparks like Sunsplash inspire hope with Boomerang Bay, where space is limited. Sunsplash is the ultimate examle of a "tight fit" water park, where slides are literally piled on top of each other.

Delirium has 32 seats and Firefall has 40 seats, so I'd not expect a 32 seat Air Race to have that bad of a capacity.

Granted, it does depend on the operation of the ride for actual capacity: I'm going off what their website says.

I know what CGA SHOULD do. Remove Demon and install and Intamin water-coaster. Or even better, ask B/M to design a custom water coaster. I wonder how a B/M water coaster would ride.

I was actually thinking remove the splash boats and use that for an expanded Invertigarden ride.

What do you mean by an Invertigarden ride?

I know waterslides would be kinda nice, but seeing as I don't know many people who go to waterparks, I think that this park will eventually need a new steel coaster. My crazy idea is to replace Action Theater and/or FireFall with a EuroFighter, Intamin MegaLite, or what-have-you, which would expand through Tidal Wave's old space into the Invertigarden.

Boomerang Bay gets very crowded in the summer time, so I could see a new waterslide being very popular.

^ Yeah, the lines at BB can get really insane. A new slide (and I dream for a ProSlide BehemothBowl, Tornado, Tantrum, Topsy-Turvy or a White Water West MegaTube slide, maybe perhaps a Polin slide, anything that uses bizarre geometry) would definitely be a most welcome addition. As others have said before, a new slide tower with drop capsule slides would also be a welcome addition, those things legitimately scare the crap out of me!
