California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

This is the photo that was released with the announcement. I think we can confirm RMC Raptor. I mean, there's Rocky Mountains in the picture as well.

 

We can definitely confirm Railblazer as a name, but I wouldn't be SO sure on RMC raptor yet.

 

These mountains are actually the Cascades and not the Rockies:

Ascending Rock Pass, Pacific Crest Trail, Pasayten Wilderness

Yes, I do fully believe it'll be called Railblazer. I was mainly speculating and sorry if it came off as full confirmation. I was only looking/noticing that the mountains were rocky and speculating in my mind that it would be an RMC. For all we know this could be a lot of teasing for the worlds tallest wacky worm.

Great teaser photo. Expedition Everest relocation: confirmed!

 

Also, if it is to be an RMC named "Railblazer," that teaser photo is pretty much a dead giveaway. So either they don't care that much if they give it away, or they're having a ball in throwing us off.

Well we can only speculate based on the info we've been given thus far, and so far it mostly points to RMC. I didn't need to have it completely spelled out to me to make an assumption that CP was getting a Dive Coaster. Everything began to point in that direction. I'm getting the same feeling from these teasers.

I thought the Rockies too at first. As in RMC.

Well if your right and CGA gets a Raptor, that is the first of it's kind in the CF chain. The renewed relationship then must be Knott's. The rumored Gertlauer would be out b/c they never worked with them, so KB would likely get an Intamin?

Wrong. CF worked with Gerst in 2016 to build Canada's Wonderland's Sky Roller

 

Hardly a renewed relationship 1 year and were they really talking about flat ride relationships. Most took it as coasters.

^ I've been thinking. Renewed relationship could mean almost anything. Quimet could even be talking about in the entire history of their parks or just since CF took over. It could refer to working with on any ride or just coasters.

 

Personally I think it's only CF history. I also believe that it is a company they haven't worked with at all in awhile, not just on coasters.

Honestly, "renewed relationship" could mean just about every manufacturer if you go back far enough. But what makes sense? Some obscure ride built 15 years ago that no one would remember? Or something more iconic? Seems to me his statement was meant to create some excitement, which would mean a fairly well known company that has built some well known rides for Cedar Fair in the past, that they haven't worked with a while.

 

Just my interpretation.

Imo CF wouldn't have even mentioned the "RENEWED" relationship thing if it didn't apply to a company that for years the expert enthusiasts have been proclaiming CF would never work with again and that's Intamin.

 

Anyways I'll be one happy camper if Knotts is due for the Intamin over the RMC Raptor which I think is a cool concept just too low capacity for a park like Knotts let CGA have it

I completely agree with you. And your interpretation seems to point directly to Intamin. I know none of us really know, but it just seems logical.
