TRIP REPORT 7/3/20   We arrived at the parking lot around 9:40am. There were no cars in front of us or behind us. We noticed a few people walking the path toward the park. We parked and took the

Walruses are back at SFDK!! 😍 This makes me really happy. The walruses were some of my favorites and I was really sad when Uquq had to go away. Glad she's coming back and she has a new fr

My guess on Roar's replacement is an RMC wood/steel version of it and here are some name ideas for it.

 

.Roar of Steel

.Twisted Roar

.Wicked Roar

.Roar: Steel Coaster

.Beastly Roar

.Revenge of Zonga

How about calling it RAWR?

 

Only if dinosphere comes back. The water splash down on that 3d motion ride totally got me as a kid.

 

(might of been Dino island 2 after googling it and boy that cgi animation is rough.)

SFDK made a HUGE mistake. Roar is an awesome wooden roller coaster that is actually quite smooth. The one at SFA is brutal, so that one should have gotten the RMC. I'm really worried now that great woodies now in addition to the crappy ones are getting the iron horse treatment.

 

So what you are saying is that theme parks should not invest to make their rides more modern and better? There will always be a small group of people wanting to protest the closing of attractions.

 

Right now Roar is not a high ranking coaster, and I have not heard too many people heartbroken about this closing. RMC will make this a top ranking coaster, that is intense, smooth, and probably inverting to some extent. I was never a fan of GCI twister layouts, and would take an RMC over most any day.

I would take an RMC over most other coasters any day

They shut down roar, for this?: The Ride

 

Ya know, for the general public who aren't in the rumor loop on social media and are asking " why?" or bashing the idea.

 

Are they? I doubt it. Most of the gp will flock to the park to ride the "new" ride.... they don't care otherwise.

^What Robb said. Basically, at this point, RMC hasn't made anything short of outstanding yet (or so I'm told, since I'm regrettably still an RMC virgin), so virtually any wooden coaster, regardless of whether it even needs it, will likely be getting improved upon!

Exactly. It would be like if someone came along and said to me "Hey, I see you have a totally average 2013 Toyota Corolla that seems to be operating just fine and nothing is really wrong with it. Would you rather have this brand new BMW 7-Series instead?"

 

Nobody in their right minds would ever say no to that.

 

Almost exactly the same analogy I thought of.

A Cedar Fair RMC is so overdue. It's been confirmed over and over again that they don't have a contract with Six Flags only, but IDK what Cedar Fair is thinking not wanting to recruit them to rehab some woodies that NEED to be rehabbed badly. Ghostrider, Mean Streak, Grizzly at CGA, Hurler at King's Dominion, Mighty Canadian Minebuster or Wilde Beast, all of those woodies are just begging for I Box track.

I bet Cedar Fair is just waiting to see how well RMCs age, there has not been one long enough to determine whether they age well or not, that's just my theory anyways. I'm sure there are plenty of other factors too.

I think more likely, RMC could only take on 2-3 projects a years as they are still a growing company. Six Flags was smart enough to book them up for several years so it looked like they had exclusivity.

Wow.... It'd be amazing if this happened. It's pretty much confirmed now.

I was unimaginably excited when TC was announced. It was an RMC 5 or 6 hours from my house.

Now there will be one 20 minutes from my house.

I am going to ride this thing so much!!!

i'm referring to the people freaking out over the closure of the ride currently, not knowing it's more then likely going to be RMC'ed. I guess most people only believe what they hear from the park.
