Ok. Idk, I still think the story is a little fishy, but who knows?

We would have known because CGA would still have to have filed permits with the FAA for permission to build the ride.

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 think they only presented a future plan for cga as a plan to show Santa Clara county officials. It was harder to build before because Cedar Fair didn't own the land under that park. Now that they do own it, if they were to continue with the proposed coaster, it would be a lot easier to get past city officials as long as they're in guidance with sound checking like they did with Gold Striker.

I'm surprised nobody has posted in here about the park's recently-announced opening day - May 22!

Are they being hopeful about California's regulations? I wonder why they announced a date for CGA but not Knott's. Any thoughts?

They also have not yet announced a date for Cedar Point, the flagship of the chain.

I think it's being overly optimistic, given all the problems the vaccine rollout in CA has had.

CGA is a seasonal park and would normally be closed right now anyway. Knott's, on the other hand, is open year round and are just waiting for Gov. ScienceTM to decide that they can reopen. They most likely have the rides mothballed and can be ready to reopen within a few weeks of getting the okay.

Same here. Even with the recent stay-at-home order lifted, nearly every county in the state is a long ways away from graduating from the purple tier.

Not a chance in hell any large county in CA will make it to the yellow tier by May, but it’s also not feasible to have no idea when you can open and expect to open in a timely manner: hiring, training, inventory, etc. all take time.

That sounds like something someone made up for sh*its and giggles. Has there ever been anything like that happening before?

There are only a few (heavily rumored) examples I can think of off the top of my head, such as:

  • Two Vekoma Flying Dutchmen being intended for Kings Island and Kings Dominion, only for Paramount to dump them onto Six Flags after the issues with Stealth
  • DCA's Rockin' Rollercoaster being canceled last minute and picked up by Six Flags Holland

The only example I can think of that can be verified is the last minute switch of Chang being moved to Six Flags Great Adventure instead of Six Flags Great America... of course, being a relocation, this is kind of a different situation.

There are definitely other coasters that were rumored to be designed for a different park than they ended up in, but I can't recall any of them at the moment.

But just because something is rumored does not make it real.
