That's just to throw you off before the big reveal that it's coming back...

What year is it?

Being a CLE local I've been keeping an eye on these projects.  The housing development currently under construction on the old Sea World side also looks very nice, and in an area with excellent school

^Accually there have been surveying markers up for about a month in skyscrapers old spot.

 

Well, I recently took a trip to Geauga Lake, and saw this in the waterpark parking lot. They're probably just storing it there until they are ready to move it to Dorney.

 

Oh, cool! I guess they got more done than I thought they did, because I thought the ride was still standing and that nothing was going on at it's new site. Won't be long until there's track in the parking lot at Dorney. I wonder what the new name would be or if it's staying the same?

I would imagine that you'll get a new name and maybe new color scheme as well as that's what they did with X-Flight and in all honesty, X-Flight would have fit in "theme-wise" where it is currently in "X-Base".

I didnt kno that there were two coasters removed from Magic Mountain, which coasters were they?

 

Psyclone got torn down and Flashback is supposedly coming down too.

"Flashback" should be sold to another park instead of getting cut-up, it is the only one of it's type in the world, this makes it so unique.

 

I've never rode "Psyclone", don't know how rough it was, but MM could of re-tracked it and given the coaster some TLC with new trains.

 

It's quite sad to see any woodie coaster get torn down even if it is ranked as one of the worst on the planet.

I wonder if this will be painted different colors, or left the Superman colors. I hope it will be repainted to the colors of the other Steel Venom at Vallryfair!, I like those colors better. Or maybe it will be given a whole new scheme.

Check out these rumors from Screamscape:

http://www.screamscape.com/html/kings_dominion.htm

 

Dominator - Rumor - (8/27/07) Several sources have now confirmed hat Dominator, a B&M Floorless coaster from Geauga Lake (formerly known at Batman: Knight Flight) will be coming to Kings Dominion, placed just to the left of the park’s main entrance area, somewhere behind the Toonpike and in the area near the Berserker, the picnic area and bus parking lot.

(8/27/07) We’ve now heard confirmations from other sources backing up the story that Thunderhawk (Vekoma SLC) from Geauga Lake will be coming to Michigan’s Adventure. No word yet on if this year will just add the new coaster or if they’ll add that new back pathway as well.

 

 

I just want to say that when CF bought this park I totally called that "If they stripped this place of all it's good rides, they'll have new additions for other parks for years to come!"

 

I predicted it would take 5 years for the park to get stripped down to either nothing but a water park or close completely.

 

How many years has Cedar Fair owned them now?

My theory, God hates Geauga Lake ! But seriously, this trend is scaring me. I hope you're right about a big plan. And CF has owned GL since 2004, so 3 years!

^ For a park with an attendance pull as low as Michigan's Adventure, an SLC would be considered a very good ride.

 

Hell, even a relocated Boomerang would become the park's biggest headliner thrillride (next to Shivering Timbers of course).

Living in England (UK), I have not had the chance to visit Geauga Lake. I would like to ask:

 

Why is this park not needed and why does it seem wrong that CF took it over..?

 

Should Geauga Lake be closed down...?

 

Geauga Lake looks like a good place to spend a day with a great water park and some coasters, if CF remove the coasters, they can add new ones over the years to make the park become more popular.

 

The Park could do with a Mini "MF" or "Magnum XL200".

Dominator is one of the few reasons for going to Geauga Lake. That is my daughter's favorite ride there. I was going to go to CP on Saturday, but am thinking about going to GL to get a few rides on Dominator. Perhaps all the people on the east coast tour next year will get some ERT on Dominater at KD.

^That's a very true thing. Without Dominator, most enthusiasts who've been there before will really see no reason to go back. I'm sure it's the same with a lot of locals as well.

Man the demise of GL is just a self-fulfilling prophecy now. Why doesn't old man Kinzel just admit that he hates having coasters so close to his precious? Because from this vantage point it looks like they're not even giving the park any chance.
