P. 639: Montezooma's Revenge major renovations announced!

Recommended Posts

Lol I think humans will be gone from the face of the planet before that footer EVER goes away. It will probably be there FOREVER! That thing is so massive, I think I remember it being poured they had a video stream up and it took them HOURS to fill it with concrete. However it is a shame that they couldn't put some other type of sky swing like the ones Six Flags has. I suppose this will have to do.

 

I also hope there's shade!

 

I'll never be happy until they bring back Hammerhead

 

I loved Hammerhead, but I was devastated when they removed Tampico Tumbler. RIP

 

 

I loved Tampico Tumbler too, it gave just the right amount of butterflies in your stomach. Also, didn't it go backwards as well? A very fun ride indeed.

^Also makes you wonder if this version will be a trailer mounted version.

 

According to their website; they only have a Transportable version that seats 30. It doesn't look too bad though.

It would probably be easier for them to get the trailer-mounted version since it's gonna be removed in 2-3 years anyway.

Does Cedar Point have trailer/transportable flats? It seems like they move or rearrange them every couple years that it would make sense. However if you're in the park it seems like they're pretty permanently installed.

 

Don't get me wrong, I guess it makes sense if Knott's does that, I just think for whatever reason it's kind of trashy to have a trailer mounted ride in a park where you spend $20+ Million on roller coasters and want to be known as a world class theme park. I mean imagine just buying a bunch of cheap ass trailer portable rides, plopping them in random places, then calling yourself a theme park. That's more "carnival-esque" if you ask me.

 

Of course I'm jumping ahead, I'll hold my judgement after the ride is installed and running. BUT THERE BETTER BE SHADE!!!! lol

I visited on November 15th for a couple of hours. Ghostrider is back to one train operation with half-hour wait around 11 AM. I hope that is just temporary or during the week. The rest of attractions had no wait.

Not much at former Windseeker sight yet

The area is quite torn up

Same area - different angle

Hey, I was also there yesterday!

 

Park was dead as all get out. Even Ghost's wait dwindled to practically nothing by mid-day.

 

I'm surprised there's pretty much no advertisement around the park for Sol. The Windseeker plot was exactly the same, albeit with no flowerbed.

So now three areas lay idle: screaming swing, Ripetide, and wipeout. Looking at a map, it looks like they are freeing up space spanning from wipeout to Screaming Swing, assuming they're planning to take out Boomerang. Could be large enough for a major coaster.

 

Unfortunately, they're not all quite open - only Riptide's spot.

- Screaming Swing's old area is now occupied by the huge new "Calico Stage" - This new area relieves the congestion from the old stage and train depot in Calico Square

- Wipeout isn't leaving. It had to come out to make room for the boardwalk BBQ remodeling. It'll be reinstalled after it's all completed.

Good to hear that Wipeout isn't leaving, I'd hate to lose yet another flat ride.
