1999 or 2000 wish list.

Post by Raethe » Wed, 22 Jul 1998 04:00:00


What new coaster do you think would best fit in at your local or favorite
park. Why? If your park is already getting a new coaster for 1999 then what
do think the park should do next?

1999- SFMM needs a Hyper-Coaster to compliment the parks wide variety.

1999- PGA also needs a Hyper-Coaster. PGA really needs a signature ride.
Something huge to give the park an identity.

IMO, SFMM needs to spend a few $$ to fix their broken rides -- run
the Revolution with ridable restraints and no braking, make Collosus
race, etc.

I'd have CCI come in and completely reprofile and retrack the Grizzly
into a reasonable coaster, ditch the Morgans for a set of 2 bench PTCs
with flip-down lap bars, and then build something like Shivering
Timbers that bisected (or did a dogleg in) the parking lot.

SCBB: A Waltzer.  I have NO idea where they'd put it, but I'd give
vital organs to have one of these rides near my house.  An indoor one
like Blackpool's Black Hole would be best!

New Marineworld: A nice big wooden twister.  Oh cool, I'm getting it!

B&M inverted at WOF in the year 2000.  It'll happen, too.  I just hope it's a
lot like Raptor and not heavily braked like Mamba and Timber Wolf have been
lately.  The only coaster they DON'T brake too hard is Orient Express, which
could actually use a little less speed in those kamikazee curves.

The only question is where to put it??  Fortunately, it's not a matter of where
there is space (since there is PLENTY), but whether it should go through the
trees (behind the Plunge and train tracks) or over open area, like the Le Taxi
Tour lot which is rumored to be removed next year.  After the inverted I think
WOF will either invest in a mega-woodie (like ST) or a family coaster. However
I think in the future they will aim more toward the thrill seeking rides as
opposed to the family rides as they did before CF took over.

Now if they'd just lay off the brakes on Mamba and TW....

Riverside: Morgan HyperCoaster or B&M Stand-Up.  The park really needs
something big.  A HyperCoaster or a record-breaking B&M Stand-Up would do
the job.

Lake Compounce: Morgan HyperCoaster with a first drop off of Mt. Southington
(LC's Mtn.) instead of an Arrow SP clone.  I, and many others would love
that and it would draw the much needed business to the park.

SFGAdv: A CCI woodie like ST.  SFGAdv *desperately* needs a big, greased
woodie.

Whalom: Something big to attract guests

My Year 2000 wish list would be to have Riverside sold to Kennywood and
then an ST clone installed.

PKI needs either a huge non-looping hyper coaster or a B&M inverted.  These are
the only two types of rides that wouldn't take crowds away from an existing
coaster.

CP needs a sit-down B&M like Kumba.  Their only "normal" looping coaster is
Corkscrew!

I would love to see PKD install one of the following:
1.  Steel Hypercoaster
2.  Wooden Mega Twister
3.  B&M sit-down multi-looper

A B&M dive coaster at Cedar Point,
like O.B. but maybe like 250 ft
high, and drop under sea level into an underwater
tunnel, lengthening the total drop to 300ft??
But instead of it ending right there maybe we could
have a few inversions?? Nothing too fancy, maybe
a vertical loop, and/or a dive loop?? That would be
nice. Also, a few hills, and a 360 degree helix
at the end. That would be sweet! They could even
call it SW13!!!

SFKK needs a Kumba type sit-down B&M for 1999.  Given the park's height
restrictions due to the airport, it also needs a hole in the ground like Nemesis
to put it in!

And to go with it, second sets of trains for the woodies in the park......

john cline ii who would also love to see PKI put in a B&M Speedcoaster, but
knows that is highly unlikely.....well, how about a Morgan hyper with lots and
lots of bunny hills on the return run, and with NO additional brakes beyond
those Dana would normally install....

I think that PCWo DESPERATELY needs a new coaster! B&M! B&M! Although
I know that Paramount probably won't invest any money into it. They
will probably get something really crappy like another motion
simulator that no one cares about or another kids coaster or
something.

I want PCWonderland to get:
CCI Wood coaster, any type of B&M coaster!

I agree with Craig when he said that PGA needs something really big to
give it an identity, but SO DOES PCWo! SO DO IT!

I'd like to see Adventure World get one more really first rate "family
coaster". Wild One and Mind Eraser provide some great extreme thrills,
and Python is pretty intense as well (especially when you add the climb
up to it into the mix). Only Roar is highly re-rideable to the average
quest
(myself NOT included, I've been known to sit on ME or WO for long
periods of time), and if AW wants to compete with PKD, HP, and BGW, they
need to round out their collection with something that has broader
appeal. I'm thinking a first rate mine train, or a cool in-the-dark ride
like SFOT's Runaway Mountain (which I thought was VERY intense, but
ever-so-smooth). Of course, I think they could use another high thrill
ride too, and if the rumours of Vekoma producing a stand-up coaster are
true, this would be a good choice for AW. PKD's Shockwave still has
great popularity in the area among
the GP who like intense rides, and if Vekoma puts together a decent
machine, and AW buys one, it would be one less reason  for folks in the
DC/Balt area to make the drive down to PKD. And last, AW at some point
needs a good full-circuit sit down looper. The park has height

any more Schwarzkopf portables looking for a permanent home. Enough of
my rambling...

Their "restriction" is that no ride can be seen from Route 2.  They
have tons of land in the back, so the farther back they build, the
higher they can go.

I wish for a nice tall, steel looping coaster at SFFT.  I know that the 1999
huge coaster by Giovanola was scrapped from plans and now there is a plan B in
effect.  I hope that they new coaster for 1999 will have more inversions than 5
and be at least over 140ft tall.  I also wish for an Intamin Giant Drop at SFFT
because our park doesnt have a freefall.

It's funny when people complain that the Rattler is too rough when the Texas
Giant is 100 times worse. The only thing good is the lay out and THATS IT.
