California Great America (CGA) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

From rcdb.com: Shuttle- a roller coaster traveling to the end of its track and returning in the opposite direction. A shuttle roller coaster's track contains a beginning and end, unlike a traditional roller coaster which forms a continuous circuit.

 

Volcano's track and trains are similar to shuttle coasters like V2 or Possessed, but it's not a shuttle coaster. So KD is a contender for Invertigo.

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.

KD has Volcano which is launch similar to a shuttle coaster. Honestly to me looking at this scenario my best logic on where it will be located would be Valleyfair. Carowinds has carolina cobra Dorney has possessed (not a boomerang) and there are a ton of boomerang type rides within a few hrs of each other on the east coast.

 

I don't get your reasoning here...you say Dorney has possessed, but Valleyfair has Steel Venom...same thing

^^^KD is a contender, but is that really likely if they just put I305 in? My money's on MIA or VF. Those are the parks that have gone several years with no new coasters. Thunderhawk in '08 for MIA, and Renegade in '07 for VF.

 

I'm not saying this because I want it to come to my home park. I actually hope it doesn't, but nevertheless, this is what I think will happen.

After reconsidering, I guess KD is a slight maybe, but Valleyfair and Michigan's Adventure still seem like the most logical choices. I forgot about Valleyfair already having an impulse, which means it could fit in better at MiA. I just don't see KD getting yet another coaster after getting Dominator and 305 in a three-year span.

It's no more or less likely to go to KD than to any other park. Outside of it obviously going to another park, the only reason I think KD would not install Invertigo, at least not immediately, is if it conflicted with I305's reopening, assuming Invertigo would be that big of a draw. :/

 

Especially since Invertigo shouldn't be that expensive to install.

 

Either way time will tell what happens to it and CGA...

^^ Does the Coaster Count really matter??

 

If MIA was my home park, yeah it probably would. Do I think Valleyfair needs it? No. Would it be nice to have? Yes.

 

KD is a great park, don't get me wrong, but I don't think it needs it at all. I think it would've made a great addition to MIA.

KD getting this ride would be a HUGE surprise, and a pretty head-scratching move if you ask me. They really don't need it, at least nowhere near as much as a park like Michigan's Adventure.

 

By the way, I can't say it enough........

 

CEDAR POINT WILL NEVER HAVE A VEKOMA SHUTTLE COASTER

Well, 2012 will tell the tell. Rumors are that SFDK will add a big new ride next year, so if that plus the removal of Invertigone does nor spur a major addition for 2012, you can forget it. And usually there are hints, signs or rumors of a new ride by the end of summer, so we'll have to wait and see.

It does to Kinzel and this may be his last chance to keep CP on top.

 

I would much rather have a park with 10 coasters and quality throughout than 20 coasters and...that's it, nothing in-between.

 

The coaster count looks good for marketing, but when you have awesome throughout (I.E. Holiday World) you don't need a veritable s-load of coasters.

Does KD seriously need another coaster? For heavens sake MIA's expansion this year was Valleyfair's Bumper Boats. How depressing.

 

Is this confirming that it's going to KD? If so, that was fast.

 

That link is created by Paramount's weird former websites, new rides from other parks had pages created on the KD site (who knows why?), and since KD doesn't have an action zone, I would assume that this is King's Island's or California's Great America ride listing.

They may as well scrap the darn park, relocate Flight Deck, Drop Tower, and some notable flats. As for the rest..let it burn (especially that benign water park).

 

edit: SFDK could definitely use a few flats, and the possibility of the park harboring Flight Deck would be sweet with a capital 'S'!
