p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

With all the tree/vine stuff I'm starting to think the "what" that's in the shed is an actual object/character related to the storyline... i.e. maybe an animatronic tree and some crawling vines and whatnot. Could also apply to the "falling trees" thing that was going on earlier, since the animatronic/effect could be a tree that looks like it's falling onto the coaster. If there is drop track it could be tied in with that.

I think it's the recycled animatronics from the old Enchanted Voyage inside the building!! Maybe some Smurfs, Flinstones, that creepy clown mouth you had to go through, or maybe the Dancing Trees!!!! Those would fit perfectly with the Mystic Timbers Theme!!!

Nah, it will be surviving cast of the Brady Bunch selling Yogi Bear Posters.

I was thinking about it again, and if it's a drop track section with a video beforehand, that would cause some capacity issues. Maybe a 5-10 second video with the drop track at the end. So you have 5-10 seconds of video, 5-10 seconds of drop track and then resetting itself, then maybe 5 seconds to move into the station....that's 25 second of time that another car cant come near the shed. And seeing how CP likes to run coasters, that likely means another train cant crest the lift hill until the previous train exits the shed. So capacity is slowed down. Just a thought, but thinking about the timing, it just doesnt make sense.

These are solid thoughts, but there is a brake before the shed that could function as an MCBR. One train could crest the lift and go through the layout while another is in the shed, and then the train would leave the shed before it's time for the other to hit the MCBR.

Could the shed be a holding break with a rotating track mixed with some sound affects? I'm sure that's far fetched, but I don't think anyone else has mentioned it lol!

 

 

Edit: To be more clear, when I say rotating I mean track that is inverting. If that makes more sense.

KI claimed in the announcement a capacity of 1,200 riders per hour, which is slightly above the average for GCI woodies. Considering both Banshee and Diamondback eat queue lines like I eat Skyline hot sauce, I wouldn't be surprised if we see another nice, high-capacity coaster in the park.

For anyone saying you can "clearly see a transfer track in the shed — duh — the shed is just a glorified transfer track," I want to pop in and say this:

 

It's not. You can see a covered transfer station that has been a hallmark of every. Single. GCI. Ever. Built.

 

Only El Toro and Kentucky Rumbler do not have one — in fact, they don't have a transfer at all, because they both have only one train.

 

There is a second part to the shed where we will prehaps see a show or some effects.

With GCI lapbars?

Restraints aside, as enthusiasts, I think we forget that a high percentage of people are terrified of going upside down. The thought of having a wood coaster that doesn't invert at all surprising everyone with a slow inversion in a dark shed at the end of the ride is borderline evil.
