Ok, I guess we forgot to mention the important fact that this will be the second generation style of the Thrust Air and won't look like HSXLC. Next Word, one of SDC's policy is to leave as many trees standing as possible, so I think you have little to worry about. This coaster will be a good one - SDC only accepts the best.
Why would they ever dismantle such a large attraction and move it within the park? That seems ridiculous. Perhaps they'll re-build it in another park (or sell it), but why would they rebuild the ride at Silver Dollar City?
If they've had problems with the ride like some people have indicated then I'd say it's unlikely they'll rebuild it at another one of their proprieties.
Who is calling it an eyesore? One man's eyesore is another man's treasure (execpt the aforementioned seats which surely everybody would agree are eyesores :) ) Would not surprise me if BSF ended up at Stone Mountain or someplace else. What percentage of this and all the other forum/boards is folks talking about rides where not all the details are announced yet? Seems to me it happens all the time.
Hmmm Well I don't think I'm going to start making judgements on this ride till its announced in June. I am sure SDC has thought about the overall beauty of the ride and will take care of that. We KNOW it will be themed well, that isn't even a question so as long as its a good ride honestly who cares?! Besides at least SDC is doing something! Its not like we have had much excitment from any of the other parks in this state! *** Edited 4/22/2004 10:07:25 PM UTC by Wildfire01***
I seriously doubt Stone Mountain will ever get a coaster, or any thrill ride. Atlanta was not happy when SDC tried to build the Fire in the Hole themed to the Civil War locomotive chase incident.
I don't think BSF would go to Dollywood either since we've already got Daredevil Falls, and while it is not a water coaster, the two rides are very similar.
If it went anywhere, I'd say CC, though it seems kind of odd to move it from one side of town to the other. (Then, HFE could just sell it like they've done with several other used rides like Thunder Express & Dollywood's old flats from the 80s)
I'm sure it won't sit and rott. :)
The Powderkeg seems like a very exciting ride concept. Certainly worthy of an SDC park!
