If your home park has announced (or you have a KBF, SFNE, or La Ronde situation), are you happy what it's recieving for 2002? So far only one of my home parks announced their attractionsPGA's flat ride package looks nice and I'm pleased. I think Delirium looks like fun and I really want to try Flying Eagles. I'm not really a 3-D ride person but I guess I could try out Meteor Attack. ----------------- "I’m more than a bird..I’m more than a plane...More than some pretty face beside a train...It’s not easy to be me"-Five for Fighting "Superman" dedicated to all of the hardworking rescuers of the WTC...

Mine has been announced pretty much, new paint for Wild Thing, and High Roller, repaving some areas, and most importantly fixing the flood problem to a degree is fine with me. ----------------- Just wait till next year!
Well IF Great Escape gets anything (other than another coaster reject) I will be happy. I am hoping for a CCI or GCI twister to compliment Comet, a few Huss rides, heck...any flat rides. And I severly hope that Six Flags doesn't steal our Rotor! I have noticed the have a habit of removing them for some reason. ----------------- Phly the Pheonix
Since i live in Singapore.. Theres no cities here and so I consider my homepark Escape Themepark.. I'm trying to convince them to by Windjammer or King Cobra.. We need a rollercoaster in Singapore! or Asia other then Japan. Can't wait till december sfmm.. ----------------- "Roar" You'll never hear the end of it!
I'm also pleased with Wicket Twister and the ice show at CP. I've not had the chance to ride an impulse before, and to have one in my home park is great. I'm also happy with the improvements being made at Michigan's Adventure.

I'm pretty bummed about the status of Arrow and X, but other than that I'm cool. I'm happy about Knott's new ride although it follows an interesting California pattern recently, very short coasters. The last lengthy coaster built here was Medusa. It's a minor complaint and actually more of a curiosity. Why is it I can go to Ohio and get an average of 4,000ft per coaster, and we average 3,000ft here? I know it's nitpicking but anyone else notice this? I call it the Paramount syndrome. ----------------- "Time flies...Whether you're having fun or not". -Mary Engelbreit.

What about Goliath which states that its 4500 ft long? I wouldnt call that a short coaster. ----------------- ========================= "The Peoples Elbow" or "The Spinaroonie?. Cant decide which is the most electrifying move in sports entertainment!!! LOL
My parks (BGT/IOA) have announced nothing - but I am hopeful for USF and I am *aware* of Wild Adventures expansion plans. Disney - get back to me when they put in something, and show some excitement for their forotten theme park business.
(Aside) Lately, Paramount does tend to build shorter rides it's true, but take into account that they are usually prototypes, and expense/return dictates a little business sense when taking such a gamble...

Well, Six Flags Great America hasnt announced anything yet. I highly doubt that they will get any new coasters in 2002 as they got 2 last year and they both barely work. I keep hearing the rumor about the ferris wheel over by where Power Dive is(used to be). I think that this is a great plan for 2002. Get the two new coasters running smoothly and add a flat or two.
Seeing I live in Wisconsin, my other home parks could be considered Big Chief Carts and Coasters and Little A'Merrick'A.
The Little A'Merrick'A owner told me this summer that they were trying to add something new every year so if anything gets added I will be excited. Expect this park to be the next Indiana Beach someday. My bet is they get CCI in there in the next few years and all hell breaks loose in Middle Wisconsin.
Big Chief is still under contract with CCI for a fourth and I got a reply to an email I sent them regarding park policies that stated to make sure to come next year because big things were happening!
All in all very excited given the current economy and things.

I am pretty happy with what Canada's Wonderland is getting. I like Flat rides. Also considering all the the rumours that I have heard, Wonderland may be getting a Setpoint Coaster similar to Super Saturator, and Roller Soaker in 2003, and a HUGE coaster in 2004.. So I am patient :)
SFNE isn't my home park, but it is close and I do go there at least 3 times a month during the coaster season. So, I am very pleased with the fact that we are getting a B&M. I am sure it's going to be a great ride, but at the very least it will help shorten the lines for my favorite steel, S:ROS! It's a no lose situation!

Well, SFGAm might not be getting any new coasters, but given the fact that Deja Vu was only open during Fright Fest, I don't mind, because it'll feel like a brand new ride. ----------------- "The Ozzman Cometh"
DWeaver, yes most of the coasters we've been getting are a little on the short stick lengthwise but I think you've forgotten about California Screamin'. Besides, to me it isn't about the ride length but the ride experience. I'd much rather ride a short, exciting ride than a longer less than thrilling coaster. Hopefully Knott's new coaster will fill the exciting part...
Nothing has been announced yet for my homepark, SFGadv, other than the upcharge Alcatraz attraction. I'm still hoping for something. Maybe nothing major. I'd really like some classic flat rides. A Whip, a dark ride/haunted house, or especially a Tilt-a-Whirl. As for major requests please see my Sig.
----------------- SFGadv Please I'm begging for a Gyro Drop tower and an ArrowBatic.
Well sfdl is probably getting a chute the chutes....and knowing six flags it will probably be twenty feet tall and used. Whoopie, horray for six flags, ever since they aquired darien lake we've lost more rides then gained!! Thanx a lot! ----------------- "who needs drugs when you have coasters...they're like a natural high"
