        I think, if the speedcoasters do well, a B & M coaster that is over 200
ft., and with multipe loops would be likely.  I would also say it will
be BIG because they haven't gotten a new coaster since 1996.

CP 2000 Predictions Part 2

Post by Sean Flahar » Fri, 30 Oct 1998 04:00:00

Your Name: Sean Flaharty

Designer: I am REALLY hoping it will be B&M but a I think this might not
be the case. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

Type: A nice record breaking looper would be nice.

Height: I think itI would be great to see a continuous circut coaster
over 300'.

# of Loops (if any): Gotta go for 10. Why? Double digit inversions on a
coaster have never been done before.

Location: Behind Mantis on the island. Remember, in late 1995, CP
announced that they would eventually fill in the lagoon for expansion
and put in attractions where the island is now.

Possible Names: My favorite name for a coaster. TYRANT!!!!  Grand
Nightmare was another one I have been thinking of, but is a bit on the
cheesy side.  Goliath? Anything huge and scary sounding.

Other Comments: I think between PKI and CP, coaster enthusiasts are
going to have one hell of a year in 2000.

Have Fun: Your damn right I am going to!!

Sean!  You had best not overlook a little place in Louisville, Kentucky with a
few flags where you hope to break a coaster record on Sunday, but so does Todd
Bills!

john cline ii who is watching the SFKK, PKI and CP plans for 2000 with great
interest and anticipation.....

That's what we all want, but until they can figure out how to make wheels
that don't melt, well, I think we'll have to wait for awhile.

According to the CP people I talked to today, Magnum goes through hundreds
of wheels a season at about $700-800 each. That's one hell of an operating
budget for one ride.
