Re: 2017 Announcement?

I haven't seen anyone mention it but this is likely the very ride I rode in Paris in 2008 (New Comer) - it's been available as a Used/Refurbished ride looking for a home on Mondial's site for a couple of years now. I don't know that for sure, but it only makes sense. I can't imagine Mondial will mak...

Re: 2017 Announcement?

Mondial Inferno is a solid choice - during dinner with the owner of Mondial back in the early 2000's she mentioned that it was her favourite ride in their lineup. I got a chance to ride one (New Comer) at the Foire du Trone in Paris on 2008 - it's amazing. Totally rerideable and forceful. It likes t...

Re: Project 2016!

I hate when people use the "park X deserves a coaster because they haven't got one in like, forever." That's not how it works. They're not going to build a B+M Flyer at Michigan's Adventure just because they haven't put in a major addition there recently. As long as you push the attitude t...

Re: Project 2016!

Disagree. You put down sod when you don't have time for grass to grow. It's expensive. If you have time, you spread seed which costs a fraction of what sod does.

Nothing is going where SkyRider was for quite a while.

Re: Project 2016!

* is coming to the park next year. The dirt in Skyrider's spot is seeded with grass (not sod) - which kind of implies that it's going to stay a grassy field for a very long time.

Re: Minebuster RMC 2016

"RMC'ing" Minebuster would be a horrible idea. I hate the phrase, but "You can't polish a turd."

What are the attractions that were removed from Action Zone in the last 5 years? I can't think of any.

Re: Minebuster RMC 2016

Cedar Fair has had zero discussions with RMC.

Zero. None. It's not happening.

Re: Skyscraper at SkyPlex

Just announced it will now have a drop tower as well (so they'll have both the tallest roller coaster and tallest drop tower, taking both records from SFGAdv) - and here's the kicker - not only the drop tower but now the coaster is being built by Intamin! http://www.wesh.com/orlandomyway/on-the-town...

Re: Construction of Major Mackenzie parking exit

Perhaps, but the implication (and first post in this thread) is that it's a guest entrance, when that's not the case.

Re: Construction of Major Mackenzie parking entrance

Just got confirmation from the park that this will be an Employee Entrance and Exit, but Guest Exit Only.

No new guest entrance. Can a mod please edit the title of this thread accordingly?

Re: Construction of Major Mackenzie parking entrance

Of course it matters. If there's no toll plaza, then there is no entrance possible by the general public. If you're assuming that you (as a guest) will be able to enter off Major Mac., there has to be a toll plaza there. There's no evidence of any construction there that would indicate the major und...
