California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

According to Inside CGA on Facebook:

 

"After 30 years of thrills Endeavor is being retired and will be removed from Great America before the park opens for the 2018 season."

 

What??? I had no idea this was going to happen. No trip to the park was complete for me without going on this.

 

Yeah, showed up on the CGA park blog today. As far as I know there was no announcement before this. https://www.cagreatamerica.com/blog/2018/blazing-new-trails-all-around-the-park

 

Also taking out a Planet Snoopy ride, "Snoopy’s Splash Dance".

 

On the plus side, some bathrooms are being renovated and a bunch of midways are being redone. So...there's a lot going on at the park!

Damn! The one ride I never rode or cared for that much in CGA, and now I'll never be able to ride it. I knew I should've ridden it last season when I had the chance.

Oh well. Let's hope something interesting will take place in its location.

Wow... great mapping of the stuff being removed. Hopefully they will kill the go carts and you'll have one enormous area... maybe something like Raging Bull. Shame the park has removed 3 adult rides in the last 2 years. I wonder if removing the Endeavor is a sign that the other ones at Carowinds, Dominion and Valleyfair are in their last days. I prefer the non inverting swinging ships anyway. Lots of exciting activity in this park.

Rail Blazer is looking great! So excited to have this new type of coaster at my home park! On another note: just an observation, all of CGA's rollercoaster lift hills (with the exception of Psycho Mouse) all point in approximately the same direction, is there a reason for this, surely it can't be a coincidence.

 

It is a coincidence. Stealth's lift hill was pointed in the other direction.

Do you have any older photos of Top Gun/Flight Deck? CGA is looking for users to submit their photos of the coaster through the years if you have them for the upcoming 25th Anniversary of the ride. Please post them here! Thank you!

Love watching the train climb from the station!

Taken from Eagle's Flight, this is from when Levi's Stadium was still under construction.

That's...quite a lot going on visually with those cars. I almost feel like I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at.

 

Same here! It threw me off before I remembered it’s just one seat across. Also, the restraint is in the “up” position, which takes some mental gymnastics to visualize what they’ll look like when they’re down.

The line for the front row is going to be so long on this!

I was thinking about this - There will surely be some different types of trends for in-line seating.

 

Will people favor riding by themselves in the front of different trains? Or riding with their groups throughout a single train?

 

Will there even be rows to wait for? Or will the operators just fill in seats from the general queue?
