P. 767: WinterFest Media Night Report

Recommended Posts

So I take it they'll be adding significant height to Hurler (ala NMS) since they're starting so early. Great to see Cedar Fair finally on board with RMC. Then again they may have been aboard for years but played it extremely coy

While it is great to have this "confirmed"... does anyone else find it amusing someone took a photo from where they likely shouldn't have been and plastered their name over it so everyone knows they took it?

 

Is this from that road that runs by the bone yard? That actually seems to be a public street (though it looks like an access road) and I believe it's even on Google Street view for some reason.

It is.

They took the Hurler webcam down a couple of weeks back so I am assuming that this move along with the "Do Not take photos of Mean Streak" during WCO, CF really, really doesn't want us to know anything when it comes to their RMC connection.

Both "alleged" RMC coaster conversions are all hush hush.

And I'm totally fine with this. The element of surprise keeps me interested.

The park opens in a couple weeks. If the pic is real and RMC is on site, they're not gonna be able to keep it hush once the season starts and hardcore geeks are staking out the area.

I think a controlled leak is part of the plan, as long as they stay in control and no one does anything rash. After all, they have a year, no hurry.

 

On Google from that link, I can see the cement mixer down to the left (looks unique), and blue box thing.

It's the same name on the pic as the flyover vids, so I think it's real ... and looks like would be a complex photoshop what with the fence in front (which does have 3 strands of barbed wire on top, no reinforcing diagonals on Google but looks to need work then).

LOL what does this even mean? Sounds like a hostage situation.

 

Well there goes Cf's budget for 2018. Meaner streak and and Wicked hurler will eat the whole budget

RMC Streak money is likely being spread over multiple years. Also RMC conversions are certainly cheaper than a giant new B&M, no?

Even if that's true (which it isn't unless you're one of those people that thinks the only worthwhile addition is a coaster addition), what's the problem with 2 new awesome RMC's in one season? Is there anything enthusiasts won't complain about?

You should know my post enough to know I dont really complain and that was complete sarcasm to make the tread implode even more then it already has. And it has worked

Its a shame you missed it as that flyover video inspired our resident FAA experts to enlighten us on the legalities of flying a drone over the park.

I'm excited for what's to come. Passholder Night cannot come soon enough.

I ended up getting the all season fast lane pass. Figure I'll do a few weekends during the year of hitting up Kings Dominion on Saturday and Busch Gardens Williamsburg on Sunday. Couldn't go wrong with the price and I figure I don't have to drive down Friday night to be there at opening Saturday now so I have save on 1 hotel night. Now I can just show up whenever on Saturday and if it's crowded it won't really matter.

 

I've only done the trip once before but did Busch Gardens on Saturday and Kings on Sunday. I have to drive an extra hour on Sunday to come home which I'll gladly deal with if Busch Gardens is less crowded on Sunday.

 

I can't wait for the season to start already.
