If people would say , “The capital originally intended for CGA was repurposed for KI instead”, that makes more sense. But saying a coaster went to park A instead of park B... there’s absolutely no way

Oh yeah, no complaints alright. I just hope all this virus crap doesn't affect our 2021.

Just found out not too long ago the parks in our area can reopen but Santa Clara county is forcing them to stay shut. In other news, scbb might be the first to open under newsoms new guidelines.

"Big things coming"

 

 

What the hell? Did they get Tom Delonge to do the marketing for this thing whatever the hell this is because they're being so damn cryptic? But to be fair, at least gives the enthusiasts (including myself) to lose their shit analyzing this.

 

Thank you for calling out Tom Delonge. I think the message is far from cryptic, because theme parks always say stuff like this over small additions, but thank you.

The permit says "6 inch tall track". That leads me to lean more towards the Sky Rocket model.

 

However if I lived near Santa Clara I would much rather get the Single Rail because the Sky Rocket at Kennywood kinda sucks unfortunately.

Oooooo... WHAT IF... it's a single rail, with the single wide seating, but it's called "Whizzers Revenge"... as an inspiration to the former ride.. Mull that one over, kiddos. (of course the tire tracks can play part in that somehow)

Well, to be fair, and I can't believe I'm even saying this, we honestly don't know if the Raptor/Rex will suck or not.

 

BTW, how does the size of the track point to Sky Rocket 1? That ride actually has two different track types.

I'm talking about SR1 and I'm pretty sure RMC's track is taller than a half foot.

I have a hard time believing the CF would leave such an obvious clue as SR1=Sky Rocket 1. They are usually way more cryptic and trolling than that.

 

I think SR1 is a red herring. For all we know it could mean Speed Racer, or maybe nothing at all.

If only it was an Intamin Blitz themed after one of the bay area highways. Highway 17 is nice and curvy, same with highway 9, the autobahn designers also designed 280... I'll cross all 27 fingers and toes.

I tend to agree

I heard that it could be a reference to how 4 or 5 CF parks have or have had a state route 1 nearby, and that the CF announcements will be connected somehow.

After a quick look, SR1 is a traffic incident report file in California, which hints more at the out-of-control car theme.

I like that idea!

You know queef, I heard that 280 designer story once too so I took a look at the 280 wiki page again. There's a ton of 'SR 1' references:

 

"In the 1964 renumbering, the Route 280 designation was officially applied to the planned route. This replaced SR 1 in San Francisco; the new SR 1 alignment turned northeast where I-280 now runs, quickly ending at State Route 82 (San Jose Avenue/Alemany Boulevard). SR 1, however, continued to be signed along its former (and current) alignment, which had not been upgraded to freeway standards.

 

A realignment approved January 1968 took I-280 onto its current route. This ran along what had been SR 1, SR 82, State Route 87 and I-480 (downgraded to a State Route then), ending at Interstate 80 at the west end of the Bay Bridge.[1] This change was made on the state level in 1968, restoring SR 1 to its current alignment and truncating SR 82, SR 87 and SR 480.[2]"

According to Screamscape, Cedar Fair just filed a new trademark name, "RAILBLAZER". It sounds perfect for the RMC Raptor/T-Rex coaster. But it doesn't sound driving related, which is what CGA is teasing for their new coaster.

It's kind of a weak tie in, but they could be referencing the small aluminum rails that line the edges of the highways here. If you could imagine a car racing down the curvy highway at accelerated speeds, lighting the rails a' blaze...

I just posted this on the Cedar Fair Development thread. I think the Raptor is going to Knott's personally.

If they really are getting a Raptor they better find a way to drastically increase the capacity.

The announcements are not connected in any way. We need to stop bringing up BS conspiracy theories.

I find it interesting that people don't think Cedar Fairisn't just filing for trademarks for things later or just pulling a head fake to play with enthusiasts. All I can say is how is "Ziz"? You know the mythical creature representing air, that fits perfectly with Behemoth(land) and Leviathian(water).

Filing Trademarks for later things, sure. Filing Trademarks to pull a head fake on enthusiasts? Not a chance... it's not a cheap process.

Actually filing a Federal Trademark is cheap! Look it up.

Cedar Fair could register a trademark with the money I gave them for my Platinum Pass alone.
