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

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

 

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

 

You are the only person doing this. Everyone else is stating there's as opinion while you are stating yours as fact.

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.

I've actually filed before. $275-$375... totally cheap

Cheap for a multi billion dollar company

This whole argument is moot considering there is no proof this is or isn't going to be used for a ride or not. Seriously.

It seems convincing to me

 

So how in any way is a boardwalk and the Wild West related?

 

It makes zero sense.

Isn't hang time a roller coaster term? I always thought it meant the upside down stuff. I know one thing.....it's not a surfing term at all. Hanging ten is a surfing term. I personally would be extremely disappointed if any of the coasters was an impulse of any kind, including a surfrider. I haven't been to CGA since it was owned by Marriott, but I think most Knotts fans will agree that the last thing Knotts needs is another 30 second ride with slow moving lines.

My guess is we might be getting Boomerang from Knotts, Most Boomerangs are 110ft, it would also be the cheapest way to add a new ride. Would also fit the "Hangtime" name.

 

There would be a certain irony if it went into the Invertigarden.

That's doubtful, it's not a new type of coaster or a renewed relationship with a manufacturer, because I don't think Vekoma has anything to do with relocating rides. Plus, this is way to much teasing for just a relocated Boomerang.

Yeah, I think there's zero chance the old boomerang is coming to CGA. It would go against everything we've heard/seen about CF's plans and efforts to invest in CGA, plus everything we've seen about what new coasters are opening this year.

More walls sprouted up overnight, near the Hometown Square games and First Aid/Smoking area. Looking like it will take a 3rd of the "Invertigarden" and all that unused area behind it leading up to the Hometown games near Maggie's.

 

Now that the construction walls are up and both Knott's & CGA is anyone good enough with google maps to do a topographic comparison to see which park is working with more real estate?

Anyone living in that area should pray to god that that crap ride doesn't come anywhere near the park.

Oh don't worry, I've been praying. I'm just waiting to see if and when I see some track on it's way to the park to find out what we may be getting.

Hello all,

 

I'm new around here and to the forums but we are going to CGA next week and are wondering if the dining plan for the day is worth it. We plan to get there early and stay pretty late. Do you guys have any thoughts on it?

 

Thanks!

So is SR1 a highway or something?

Maybe read some previous pages?

 

It's funny cause I used to live on "the 1" in San Luis Obispo - I just never heard it referred to as SR1.

 

It get's really winding and curvy in Big Sur though. Guess that could make an interesting roller coaster theme? Cool. Can we rule out an impulse now? Theming an impulse to a winding CA road seems off!

 

Side note - I'll cry out of happiness if CGA ended up with an Inta Blitz
