Did any of you guys see the sign on the log flume's fence this weekend? It said something about "A New Expansion Coming in 2001". I wonder what it could be. A new coaster? A newer log flume? Or epxansion of Rivertown? Anyone have a clue on this one.

Actually I think that if they were to take out the King's Mills flume and put in a 'Journey to Atlantis' type ride, I'd be ecstatic. It would be a nice draw to that side of the park since it seems so top heavy to the north side. Part old log flume/ Hanna Barberra water ride, part coaster. It would appeal to a wide audience.
If they really wanted to tie Cedar Point (If they aren't counting Racer as two coasters, which I don't think they are) for the most coasters, then they would put in a coaster. Because I don't think CP is putting in a new coaster, unless They put in a Wild/Mad mouse.
201.3 Miles to Cedar Point from Owosso MI.
They need to put in a ride that will scare the crap out of you... if that means a coaster, fine. The only ride at PKI that I had ever truly been scared on was Flight Commander (when my over-the-shoulder harness clicked open a notch during a roll) Once was enough for me.
As far as PKI catheing CP in amount of roller coasters it really shouldnt matter. But in my mind in almost certain to happen. Simple reason PKI alot of room left, CP running out of room. As I said once and heard, I heard that PKI has used only about half of the land they own, or something of that nature. But come on they both have there greats SOB, and its father, Outer Limits, Face Off, A huge Drop zone, some 300 feet. Top Gun, etc etc. CP's MF, Raptor, Mantis, Mean Streak, "ok So im the only fool who likes it" The Geminiie God if i could spell. ahhh!! Magnum XL 200, the power towers. I cant say anyone of these parks is week. In fact I dont think I would put any two in state parks or 3 SFO, vrs any three in any other state. I guess its like the Browns and the Bengals thow, we dont like each other. Browns will get the Bengs next year.
Jeff, out of curiosity, what space does Cedar Point have? I do know that there is about 200 acres behind the Racer and OL:FOF at PKI. They have enoygh room to put at least four more adult coasters back there.
