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.

I love the rock work! Who cares if it's a clone? It looks like it's going to be a great ride and fit in really well at the park, and it'll be unlike anything else in the state. Congrats, CGA!

Yeah I dont really get disappointment over clones, if it's a clone of a great ride then it's great.

If the scenery around the ride will look anything like the rendering, it's gonna look great!

Lol I love how low-key this announcement was compared to CP's and KD's. The reaction of the crowd to the rendering was just "whoa..." instead of "YEEAH WOOOO!!!"

I know right.

Spoiler alert: RMC does clones now.

 

But it looks so much better than Wonder Woman with the colors, theming, and placement.

 

They did say when T-Rex and Raptor track rides were first announced that Raptor track was going to be a "Cookie Cutter" layout, so this is an off the shelf layout so will likely be more built with the same layout at other parks.

Wow. Cedar Fair outclassed Six Flags even at a clone.

 

Wish it wasn't a Raptor but this does look like a good ride with decent theming.

I was thinking the same thing. SF says "Here's a ride." CF says "I'll see your ride and raise you placement and theming." SF says "What are placement and theming?"

This looks great though I'm afraid capacity would be a nightmare. Also the lift hill has no catwalks, which I find unusual. One thing usual about the lift is that it faces north, like most roller coasters (and all the big ones) in CA Great America do

The very first comment after the announcement. THE VERY FIRST!!! And it's someone complaining and bitching.

 

This is why I CANNOT STAND ROLLER COASTER ENTHUSIASTS!!!!!

 

After the 2017 year we just had where very little was built, very little was innovative, absolutely NOBODY should be complaining about new and unique rides being announced. NOBODY!!!

 

Seriously go find another hobby "RollerManic" because no one wants that type of crap attitude around here.

I honestly don't give a care that it's a clone. Not only does this look beautifully awesome, but this will probably be the very first RMC I will ever ride! I believe this is a great start to the park's Masterplan expansion! Oh what a year 2018 will be!

Cedar Fair have seriously impressed me with these announcements today, who cares if its a clone, the colours are so much better on this! Along with really strong themeing and another great looking train

We'll have three RMCs in the state of California by the time this opens, and who knows what Knott's is going to announce yet.

 

EDIT: Also, of note that SFDK was the first to add the first Sky Rocket II, which has now been cloned several more times, but S:UF still remains as popular as ever.

It's really exciting to see Vekoma and RMC entering the large steel sit down looping coaster market. Previously B&M pretty much had a stranglehold on it, increased competition can only be a good thing for us.
