Not a park, but a company.

 

Six Flags

 

Year 1: Add a Larson Stupidloop and call them "roller coasters". Even if a park already has one, add another one.

Year 2: RMC all the wooden coasters. ALL OF THEM.

Year 3: Add a 240ft SkyScreamer at all parks and call them "drop towers". Even if a park already has one, add another one.

Year 4: Add an S&S 4D Free Fly coaster and call them either "The Joker" or "Batman: The Ride" at every park. Even if a park already has one, add another one.

Year 5: Retheme ALL kid's areas to "Loony Tunes Land". Even if a park already has a kid's area themed to Looney Tunes, add another one. Add a Flying Scooters ride. Even if a park already has one, well, ADD ANOTHER ONE.

 

 

^^^^^^.....says the Six Flags fanboy!

Port Aventura

2016: Advertising Ferrari Land

2017: Opening Ferrari Land

2018: Advertising Ferrari Land

2019: Advertising Barcelona World (casino complex)

2020: 20 Anniversary (anything)

2021: Opening Barcelona World

 

I hope that this won't be the truth.... My real thoughts are something like that:

 

2016: Final retrack of Stampida, it turns to GCI Millenium Flier Trains.

2017: Opening Ferrari Land, major refurbishments to Dragon Khan, including train changing, maybe turning it floorless...

2018: Furius Baco major refurbishment, including some track work and train changing (maybe taking down the hearthline and making something similar to B&M trains)... OR B&M TRAINS Also Investindustrial sells the park to someone that know how to do the things in a good way (Blackstone, Universal )

2019: Europe Record Flying Coaster, maybe it includes a kind of dive inverting drop... Obviusly flying around polinesia and themed to birds or something similar.

2020: Some brand new shows and a flat rides pack (HUSS Frisbee, something kiddier and another one like a HUSS Top Spin)

2021: Ferrari Land gets bigger, maybe a B&M Dive Machine or an Inverted. It also could be a RMC or a Mega-Lite.

Six Flags New England

This year: Bizarro > Superman the Ride, Fireball, Traffic Jam

 

2017: Justice League: Battle for Metropolis (expand Justice League building, put Catwoman's Whip into storage, move path out- there's lots of grass by GCG!)

2018: New slides or pool renovation in Hurricane Harbor

2019: Flashback and Balloon Race removal, some sort of flat ride or (dare I say) compact coaster?

2020: Clearing land in the back of the park for expansion in the future, park improvement

2021: Mind Eraser donezo! Obviously a big coaster goes here, please

 

I'll update this if I change my mind, but it seems legit so far

Kennywood (Since it's 2016 and we know Noah's Ark was rethemed and re done)

2017 Retheme Garfield Nightmare to Old Mill or equalivent and add RMC or GCI wooden Hybrid coaster (a wood coaster with inversions without steel track)

2018 Bring back Garden stage and add a stage area in lost kennywood

2019 Add Drop tower above Garden Stage (Could be a Tilt Drop tower or Giant floorless and Stand up one)

2020 Remove skyrocket, Move Bayern Kurve, Grand Prix ,Musik Express, And Cosmic Chaos behind Old Mill area (remove pavilions from that area except double pavilion in old mill valley)

2021 Return Turnpike, Add Either a Gersautler spinning or Eurofighter in area where bayern kurve, gran prix and musik express was (Start the station where gran prix was), bring back a chance trabant and theme it to Volcano Valley

2022 Add either a SFB or S&S Combo Drop tower to Volcano Valley and prepare for front park expansion (meaning move main gates up, bulldoze family dollar buildings and turn into parking lot and start new ride area)

 

Now i know some plans are wishful thinking but before they start expansion these things could be done to keep kennywood charm wild adding or readding nnew/old rides. I also think by turning the family dollar parking lot and moving park gates you could have new rides area and safer way in and out of the park. because turning right or left onto 837 (Kennywood boulevard in the middle has become quite dangerous)

The closest park to me is Frontier City in OK City, so here is my 5 year plan:

 

2017- "The Oklahoma City Thunder Boomerang". Guests launch out of the station and up a 400 ft. tower with the NBA Championship Trophy at the top. . . but wait! At 370 ft, Kevin Durant pulls a hamstring, and the ride vehicle slowly rolls back into the station disappointing everyone.

 

2018- "The 3.2 Beer Garden Of Wonder". Come sit at picnic tables and watch in horror as idiots pay real money for crap beers like Bud and Miller Light that are even more watered down than normal.

 

2019: "The OK Oil Drop Tower". Guests feel like a real Oil Executive as they rise up the the 500 ft tower and can look down at all the poor people below. . . but what's that? Your companies fracking has caused another earthquake, and the tower shakes and sends you and your net worth plummeting to the ground. Thank goodness the feds bail you out before you hit the ground.

 

2020: "Tornado: The Paycheck". A dark ride through a geo dome like Spaceship Earth, except it follows the history of weather related disasters in the Sooner State. Narrated by a laconic Bill Paxton, who ends each section by saying; "I'm only doing this for a paycheck." After reaching the top of the dome, the ride vehicles spiral back down while window air conditioning units blow on them and Paxton says; "Oh no. . . we're in the vortex. . . we're spinning. . my fly is open."

 

On ride photos include the option of a photo-shopped naked Helen Hunt. None are ever sold.

 

2021: "The Chicken Fried Steak Museum". Housed in a double wide trailer, this dynamic exhibition explores the history of Oklahoma's official bird, mammal, and fried food. The gift shop at the end offers "Oklahoma: Come For The Tornadoes, Stay For The Chicken Fried Steak" T-shirts up to 6-X.

2020: Nemesis Inferno removal. Replaced with another B&M coaster (maybe a standup).

 

Removing a unique B&M Invert only to replace it with a B&M Stand-Up makes no sense to me, but to each his own. This thread isn't exactly known for being realistic anyway.

 

I won't make a thorough 5-year plan, but for my home park (Knott's), I'm fairly confident we will see a renovation of Fiesta Village for 2017. By that point, that is the only area of the park that hasn't received a major restoration. This could include some Montezooma love and a new flat in Windseeker's spot.
