So there a rumor going around that KD might be getting a wing coaster in 2021. If this is true then its going to be the replacement for Volcano. Take this with a grain of salt though.

I don't think there is enough solid evidence yet to really say if the leaks are credible or not, but if they are I'd be a little disappointed. I can't complain about getting a new coaster, but with something as legendary and unique as Volcano I think it deserves an equally unique and amazing replacement and I just don't see that out of a small wing coaster.

But you know what a small wing coaster will be that Volcano never was? .... reliable

Not only would it be reliable but it would be marketable, even if small, because there are only wing coasters in the midwest. The dudes that leaked it are almost always on point, soooo...

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Cedar Point agrees with you.
Bigger is not always better.

If it's a wing coaster, I'll be happy. It'll probably be a more laid-back ride to complement the more dynamic I305 and TT.

Theming/landscaping will make or break the ride. It needs to have the physical presence Volcano did. Seeing RailBlazer vs. Wonder Woman, I have faith in Cedar Fair.

I'm not a fan of Wing coasters overall, but I like Fenix at Toverland, and haven't tried Holiday World's Thunderbird yet.

I love donkeys more than me.

I have been on all 4 north american wing coasters. While they are no where near my favorite coaster type I will say I preferred the smaller ones like XFlight over GateKeeper and Wild Eagle.
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

I haven't been on a bad wing coaster yet and they're always crowd pleasers. While it may not have the uniqueness of Volcano, it would be a super reliable crowd pleaser.
