At this rate, I should be able to buy Corkscrew for around $1000 when they eventually retire it. :lol:

^ If worst comes to worst they could easily borrow the money from one of the 37 sketchy payday loan places near the park.

I know the park doesn't care about anniversaries, but it seems like the park will do some fun things in 2020 for their 150th.

(Queue people crying that we're not getting an 800 ft roller coaster lol)

Parks do care about anniversaries from the standpoint of trying to sell sh*t and they almost always market them. The problem is that many people think "caring about anniversaries" means blowing the budget on a massive coaster just because it's an anniversary year which is ridiculous

100% agreed. The lament I see on Facebook right now is kind of hilarious. "OMG we aren't getting a coaster!!11!!"
I'm interested to see what "retro" things they do to mark the occasion.

They're converting Steel Vengeance back to Mean Streak.

I feel like this was put out to temper expectations a bit. Wouldn't be shocked at some sort of pirate ride type addition, obviously updated. Also bringing back retro food and beverage choices. Add a retro area similar to Route 76 at Valleyfair or County Fair (is that the name?) at Carowinds.
Top 10 - 1.) Steel Vengeance 2.) Intimidator 305 3.) Maverick. 4.) Lightning Rod 5.) Fury325 6.) Phoenix 7.) Twisted Colossus 8.) Taron 9.) Millennium Force 10.) Expedition GeForce
