P. 456: Information about Christmas Town 2021!

Recommended Posts

I just don't believe this will be a sister spinner coaster to Cobra's Curse at BGT. I don't see why they would start advertising a project of that size a year in advance. I do think the coaster will be around 60 feet tall but use the terrain that will make it way larger, sort of like Boulder Dash.

I really hope it's not just a clone of Cobra's Curse as I don't want to see the Busch parks just become clones of each other. I really like how they have different attractions and unique experiences at each park. I don't mind the Griffon/Sheikra and Montu/Alpengeist crossovers as those are world class coasters, but I would hate to see more clones and have the Busch parks become like Six Flags.

I don't think this will happen. But I agree. Busch has done a great job of adding sister attractions with different flavors over the years. Kumba/Drachen Fire, Montu/Alpinegiest, Griffin Sheikra, Cheetah Hunt/ Verbolten

I would not see Kumba/Drachen and CheetahH/Verbolten as a sister to each other.., only as a (ment) slot for ride to count, ok, but by kind or anything else...not really for me.

^ well - each pair does fall into a certain category. Kumba (probably my the best B&M ever built in my opinion ) and Drachen Fire were big sit down loopers, and Cheetah Hunt and Verbolten are both more family style launchers.

 

I was just wondering, can anyone make any sense out of that "leaked" drawing??? I know I can't and I'd love to hear some of your ideas about what it is.

On the first page of the plans there is a sheet index. On page 18 through 21 is "Layout and Materials Plan" but the plans given to us cut off at page 17. From what I can see, everything at the moment is just land clearing/building proposals.

Shall we agree that they're "cousins," and let it go at that?

The hype for Cobra's Curse @ BGT started in March of last year. So it is not unusual for BG to start hyping a family ride this early. Other fan sites are pretty convinced that BGW is getting a Mack Spinner (sister to Cobra Curse) in New France that will require the closing of the BG Railway and possibly LeScoot for a good portion of the season! I would be rather disappointed if this is the case, as I was really hoping for a record breaking coaster to compete with Carowinds' Fury 325 and KD's 2017 coaster.

I do not believe this will be a spinner IMO. CC has not even opened yet, why would they jump ahead and give BW one when they don't even know the turnout of CC yet? I think it will be something big that would actually make sense for this kind of teasing this early.

 

I'm thinking RMC or GCI.

Same here, David....I have no clue as to what I am looking at.

 

If I had to guess by what is near the bottom of the drawing, I would say 'Small Intestine - The Ride'?

Sure if a park asked them too, why turn down busniess? I think during IAAPA they pointed out their "Raptor" track would be for smaller kiddie/family coasters.

But the concept vid shows a RMC mega lite.

Judging by how it seems to connect to a plaza at one end and there's a a staircase at the other, I'd think it's some sort of pathway (queue/walkthrough area/etc).

 

My thoughts exactly. Notice that there is a little "gate" where it bunches into itself. That tells me that there is a place to open a gate when the line is short, and close it when the line is long. Alpengeist has a very similar queue system. There's the ramp to the station when the line is short, a long walk around to the covered queue when the line is longer, then a third lower path closer to the log flume for an even more extended queue. The fact that there is a stairwell to the building at the end of this snaking path makes me think it's a queue line to a queue house. Also, another part of the plans has an "alternate ADA entrance" on it.

 

That said, these buildings are tiny. I guess they are technically large enough to be a queue house for a smaller coaster, but I really don't think they're big enough to be a coaster house/train barn for a big league coaster. Then again, I really don't go around memorizing square footage of current stations.

I think it could be these are plans for some other small improvements in that area of the park and not even quite the 2017 attraction plans.

 

However if you look closely when the engineer flips over the papers sitting down on the left, you get a glimpse of something that looks like wooden roller coaster track. There is also wood background at the end of the video.
