I just want a damn Hyper GT-X to go in ANYWHERE. Lightning Run is so great for such a low price point.

It works with the clues from Ouimet, sort of. I don't know if I am surprised or not that we haven't seen more of these.

At only 100 ft tall, I can't imagine why... ;)

why have we not seen a Mega-Lite in the States? They are AWESOME. (not irony there, or whatever Alanis Morissettte style definition you choose). Seriously, those things rock.

I've not had the opportunity to ride the Chance coaster at Kentucky Kingdom, but have not heard a bad thing about it. If there is Raptor track in Cedar Fair's future, I'm just praying that it doesn't arrive at Knott's in 2018.

I dunno. How does a Chance coaster fit? There's already once out there so it's not a world's first and I don't think CF has worked with them in the past have they?

They've worked with Chance Morgan on the hypers at Dorney, WoF and Valleyfair

Wasn't it just Morgan at that point? No Chance! (see what I did there)

Yes, but the hypers are listed on Chance's website, so I'd assume it's all considered the same

When Dana Morgan retired in 2001, he sold all assets to Chance, but the three coasters at WOF, DP, and VF were built by Morgan.

There's some cryptic new little additions to CGA over these last couple of days, and has sparked lots of rumors.

This little marker popped up in the lawn at the "Invertigarden" (the empty lawn where Invertigo used to be), and on one side of the marker is painted "2018" and the other side says "SR1". The next day, they painted some white tire tracks that swerve across the path and then collide into the marker. And then a couple days ago, they changed the "SR1" into "Project SR1". I looked at these myself yesterday.

I feel like Cedar Fair is most definitely dropping hints and toying with the fans on what next year's attraction will be! Some of the theories popping up are:

*SR1 = 1st Single Rail. RMC will drop a small scale version of the Raptor as a first install. This would go with Cedar Fair's announcement that one of the 4 new coasters will be "the first of its kind." This is NOT likely at CGA lol

*SR1 = State Road 1, or a SR1 Racecar. Maybe a small coaster themed to car, like a Backlot stunt coaster?

*SR1 = Sky Rocket? Like the one at Kennywood?

*Small Intamin Blitz Coaster, since also one of CFs new coasters will be with a manufacturer it hasn't worked with in awhile.

It's already confirmed that the CGA attraction will be 110.5 ft based on city council documents.

I just wanted to throw out the rumors that are going around! That way if one of these turns out to be correct I will be sure to reference this post ;)

Or perhaps "Survey Record 1"?

You mean it could be something reasonable and simple, with no nefarious undertones? Impossible!!

Not sure nefarious is the right word. I highly doubt whatever they're adding has wicked or criminal undertones ;-).

But they may be adding something that is wicked and twisted...

Why would a park put a marker on the ground with the initials of a coaster built seven years ago in a park over two thousand miles away by a completely different company?

They most definitely wouldn't. That option can get canned as well.

CF (technically the owner/builder). owns both CGA and CP.

[Humor Alert] BTW, that's FYI, IIRC. [/Alleged Humor Alert]

What will be intersting is if/when markers show up further from the invertigarden...

If you include the RC boats and white waterfalls plots there's room for a pretty decent sized coaster.

Then they could claim it's 110' while actually building a 180' ride. Nobody notices stuff like that in NorCal.

Just advertise it in meters and hope no one can do the math...
