^^You mean like MaxAir? It gets past 90 degrees, but doesn't invert. That's what a giant frisbee is.

I'd say that's a pretty significant investment.


Significant, sure. It's not a $25 million coaster though - sure, another multi-million dollar coaster is unfeasible just two years after I305, but a flat isn't even close to that sort of price. I just meant to say that they're on a very different caliber of investment - almost $20 million apart.

^ It's actually just a little less than a modern day wooden coaster. I think Renegade at Valleyfair! cost only 6.5 million or something like that.

Let me rephrase again - we all know not to expect some giant roller coaster running on the heels of I305. I'm just saying that we don't have to count out a frisbee or a Windseeker as well. Plus, KD has three (well, two) fantastic wooden coasters, and they could use a large-scale flat.

Yeah, I'd like a flat too, but I'd like a GOOD wooden coaster soon. Hurler hasn't aged well, the Rebel Yell is just okay... I like Grizzly but some think it's too aggressive. (I guess the former Scooby counts too.) A GCI coaster to replace Hurler or to join the other 3 would make the park better rounded. I say get 5 family flats and put them in different places around the park. (A monters, regular frisbee, etc.) Then in 2013 or 2014 get a world class wooden coaster.

^Rebel Yell is a pretty fun ride in the back seat. And even Hurler can be fun in some seats, I mean I know I've always enjoyed it...

I used to not like Grizzly, but now I really, really do. And Ghoster Coaster is a good ride for the kids. I think KD's fine in the wooden department, for now at least...
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

Well, we also haven't added one in 17 years. It's about time for a new one.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

They should save t he spot behind the theatre for a new invert & add a flat in the grove where HSXLC was.
