I think I may have said something to this effect before in years past, but I truly believe that SFA will get a new coaster (meaning brand-new, not a hand-me-down from some other park in the chain) when at least one of three things occur:
#1 - Amelia Earhart's plane is found
#2 Jimmy Hoffa's body is found
#3 you know where freezes over

Thing is, sadly for us coaster fans, the water park is SFA's bread and butter (even though it is only open for three months out of the year) and I truly question whether the dry side would even survive without it. Kind of like a restaurant that serves mediocre food but has a very busy, popular bar - take the bar away and the place goes under. Such a restaurant would be much more inclined to spend money renovating and improving the bar area than the rest of the place because that is what pays most of the bills. Same thing with SFA I believe. They have little incentive to do much for the dry side when it is the water park that is most popular with the average guest.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I think down the road we'll all appreciate Wahoo River when we're in HH. Just a real low excitement factor at announcement date. But hey we always have Twisted Timbers to look ahead to!

Because that day drastically effected your life so much. You still live in a free country where you post in a themepark forum every day.

As for SFA, I think they are moving the way of Dorney park in a sense that there is no need to pay attention to the dry side as much when the waterpark is the main draw.
