Small update;

upon arrival I saw small amount of Canada's Wonderland Maintenance workers around the dirt pile beside Minebuster. I thought Minebuster maybe was shut down due to a small problem but it was working. There is metal fencing laid down on the ground next to the power supply station next to Stunt coaster with a people lifter there now where the workers were around. They also had dug up the splash works path again at some point and were re laying some bricks again. There is also a small patch of grass cautioned taped off next to Black Hole in Splash Works. 2016 is looking even more like a Splash Works investment and more land prep for 2017, interesting how their working on the power supply station next to Stunt Coaster ;) cough cough multi launch wing coaster :p

I have been saying move Flight Deck to VF for a couple years now. Put a nice B&M invert at CW
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Reposting what KI Kidd posted in the development section;

I would highly suggest reading through the Cedar Point Analyst Day release on the CF website. It has some great info on performance so far this year as well as a very interesting five year capital expenditures matrix. The oft discussed pie chart of park-by-park revenues and EBITDA is also present.

Looks like park EBITDA broke down as follows so far this year:
1) Cedar Point
2) Knott's
3) Kings Island
4) Canada's Wonderland
5) Carowinds
6) Kings Dominion
7) Dorney
8) Worlds of Fun
9) California's Great America
10) Valleyfair
11) Michigan's Adventure

There are also some interesting notes from the five year capital expenditure matrix.
-Major coaster projects each year through 2020
-"Coaster Re-Work" projects for 2016-2018
-Mid-size thrill rides for 2016-2017 and 2019-2020
-Interactive Dark Rides for 2016-2019
-Accommodation expenditures in 2017 & 2019
-Ride Removals in 2016-2018

2016-2020 projects, oh did I forget to mention Minebuster!

I agree. Flight Deck at VF would be a good fit. Time Warp could go to DP or even MIA.

CedarFair1, you do realize Stunt Coaster's power station is near the brake run and is partially inclosed by themeing....right?

The pictures you posted are no where near that.

Have you looked at it, it's very similar to what you see in neighborhoods... It's a small power supply thus why it's also fenced off.
