Bummed another GL ride may be permanently biting the dust, but if/when this coaster happens it would get me back out to Dorney for an afternoon on my way to or from SFGAdv with a stop at Knoebels included. Gotta prioritize.

Did my donkey title just change???

As a former season pass holder, I would take a new Gravity Group shuttle coaster over Possessed any day mostly because I have been on Possessed so many times and want something different to experience. This is a brilliant decision for a coaster type as well.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

And just like that... we are back on track! Even Wuhan Flu can't slow down our 2021 coaster! Rejoice people!

I mean, I think most people already assumed that it was the township that canceled the meeting as it stated on the South Whitehall Township website that the other presenters for the meeting also “withdrew”. However, that extra part about them going to that other group to get their approval on it is a good piece of info. The next South Whitehall Township meeting is towards the end of this month so maybe we will get some more info then.

So with Hershey opening soon hopefully Dorney (or well Allentown) gets things sorted soon so my friend can pick up his season pass so we can head out to Kings Island and CP for passholder preview.

But that may be a tall order

You know you don't need your physical card, right?

So long as you have the piece of paper indicating the Platinum Pass has been purchased, you can bring that to any CF park and have it processed into a physical card, regardless of where it was purchased.

It's not like Six Flags where you have to go to your "home park" first.

^ Kings Island is now allowing people to process season passes entirely online, I'm guessing Dorney Park has the same option.

I feel like as a potential replacement for Possessed, a shuttle woodie is pretty good...about equal. But seeing as how it could end up being a replacement for Possessed AND Stinger, it seems to me to be a little bit of a downgrade. I understand Stinger sort of sucked but still think that Possessed+Stinger>one shuttle woodie.

But best case scenario here is them getting the new ride and also keeping Possessed. Hoping for that!

I actually didn't. Being longer Six Flags holders maybe that is why. I'll look into this. We're trying to head over to CP and KI for opening possibly and that would be a lifesaver.

I consider the proposed new coaster to just be a replacement for Stinger as I am sure they will eventually replace Possessed with something else down the road. That won’t be for a VERY long time of course. Just like how Kings Dominion’s rumored free spin is a Crypt replacement, and most likely another coaster will be placed in Volcano’s spot...eventually.
