When Valleyfair lost the bet with Dorney didn't they have to rename one of their rides for opening weekend? Does anyone know which ride they're renaming?
Favorite Wood: Renegade
Favorite Steel: Bizzaro (SFNE)

Granted it's a completely different company operating under different circumstances, but still. I personally think a Gerstlauer Infinity coaster or an RMC Raptor at Valleyfair is a more likely scenario, though I could see them adding a smaller B&M here if Cedar Fair thinks it's a good investment.


If Valleyfairs going to be adding a new coaster it's probably going to be a family coaster, which I don't think is a bad thing. Manta at SeaWorld San Diego is a family coaster and that ride fantastic. I just think that Valleyfair would see a much better result if they adding a great family coaster than adding some mediocre B&M that costs the same amount as the family coaster.

^
I know Northern Lights technically isn't a roller coaster but I feel like it fills in Valleyfair's need for another family coaster. Still, if the park does add a family coaster in the near future, I certainly hope they add something along the lines of Manta at SWSD. Haven't ridden that ride yet but it looks like something that families and thrill seekers alike can enjoy.

Donkeys are my way of life!

Seems like Delirious has been closing a lot. Anyone else notice that?

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Dropped by the park today to check out Delirious and ride some coasters. Of course I saw 'Renegade Mike' on both my laps. Renegade is running just fine as usual. Even though it was slow at the park the one train abomination Excalibur was actually running its half full train. :lmao: This was my first Larson Looper. It was fun and smooth. Not as 'dizzying' as I assumed it would be. It didn't loop as fast as the old Enterprise like I expected (which is good for me). It looks great in Route 76 and from the front of park. Took some photo's to share.

But first, a shot of the new grass where RipTide used to be. RIP.

And now to find Delirious.
IMG_0474.jpg
The Flying Scooters (Flying Eagles) were renamed this weekend due to a lost bet between DP and VF for the NFL Conference Championship game last year. To get the full effect Valleyfair management flew in some Eagles fans so they could bully kids in line and then beat them up in parking lot on the way out.

The new Coke Refresh station right by Delirious in Route 76.

And here it is! It even has purple rocks at the base of the sign.

This one is for you Larry.

That purple train.

Then the purple operator station. If your allergic to purple, you cannot go near this ride.

One more shot in all its purple glory.

Cover of this year's park map. Going to be a purple year. And there is nothing wrong with that. You don't see it much and it really stands out.

And the pin they were handing out for Delirious. They did this for North Star Last year on Preview Day but since that was canceled this year they were handing them out this weekend.

Thanks for sharing. I think Delirious is my favorite looking super loop. I LOVE the two shades of purple. Very unique and eye catching.
Steel: 197 / Wood: 33 / Total: 230
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

Delirious was open a few times when I went opening weekend I’m curious if it will have some downtime because it was also closed for a while or it’s still working out the bugs? I got to ride it twice opening weekend.
