If they really do remove the Bobsleds then they most certainly will need a new major coaster because that would drop the park down to 4 large coasters and 1 kiddie coaster. It was bad enough when they removed Nightmare even if it was a ride capacity nightmare (no pun intended). Alpine isn't the best, but its still better than the other offerings aside from Comet. If the park could get a decent coaster to match Comet it wouldn't matter as much if the other coasters are terrible. Im glad they have been expanding their flat ride collection which was really lacking for years, but it's time for a big coaster addition, and not just a water coaster either.

That is correct, and honestly it would have been better to place it somewhere at Great Escape than to give it to a park that already had a Batman Clone. It wouldn't have been the best but it would be better than Canyon Blaster or Steamin' Demon.

I have never understood this rule( I know why they have it), because really the rest of the park isn't exactly silent or quiet even nearby. This stipulation could actually hurt their chances of a new coaster unless they place it somewhere else in the park which kind of defeats the purpose of removing the bobsleds.
I hate noise ordnances around parks. The noise coming out of a park is not THAT loud. And its not like parks are even open THAT late on a regular basis. Babies I say lol!
Edit for a side note: I live right next to a rail road track. I have for most of my life. A train passing by twice an hour is significantly louder than any noise coming out of a theme park for a 10 to 12 hour operating day. No one in my neighborhood has ever complained lol!
