Honestly I’d rather see an RMC Raptor come to the park (even over RMC Boss) but we know that’s not going to happen. :roll:

Honestly at this point, I think an RMC Boss would actually be a really good idea just because of the maintenance costs of the current Boss. Not having to maintain all of that wooden track would save a lot of money eventually.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

What are the current maintenance costs of the Boss?

^Judging by how it rides, the cost is high and the budget is nil

I remember being told a few years back that the off season rehab is around $250,000 for the woodies, now I cant remember if that was total for the three or how the breakdown really was. On another note, you should be seeing more updates with excalibur around the time Fright Fest opens.

^ If that's an accurate number, that's a pretty significant investment.

I don't think you're going to see RMC Boss or a Raptor. Our park doesn't need a new roller coaster as much as we all want one. I think it will be many more years before we see a new coaster.

Roughness is poor design, not lack of maintenance dollars.
