Breakthrough park of 2001

Which park do you think will have a breakthrough year in 2001? I'm going with Magic Mountain with the hype surronding their new coasters

Sex or riding a Coaster?

Im going with the Coaster!!!!

Well by breakthrough do you mean a park having a great year(by attendance figures and such) or a medicore park that is transformed to a world class park?

anyway I'll still go with SIX FLAGS MAGIC MOUNTAIN.

By my personal definition of "breakthrough," I'd say SFMM broke through a while ago. (Or should I say Wally World? ;))

That's easy, Silver Dollar City! More people will discover this gem of a park than ever before.

Definitely Silver Dollar City. They aren't very well know, but with the addition of Wildfire, a B & M Sit-down, they will be found. It is a great park. Great family atmosphere and not to mention Thunderation, an excellent Arrow mine train, and BuzzSaw Falls, Premiers first Liquid Coaster.

SFA. Maybe with the addition of yet another coaster will some people see that this is one of the best parks out there.

Parks for 2000: CP, Great Escape, Great Adventure, SFA, Islands of Adventure, Kennywood

Well, Six Flags Ohio is getting a new flying coaster, and possibly they'll fix up some other problems (space, ride maintainence, etc.) If that happens, then they'll become an AWESOME park.

I definetly agree with Silver Dollar City, this park seems primed to bust out next year and be discovered.

The reason I didn't pick SFMM is because I don't think they're breaking through anything. They're just maintaing as a premier park in the nation by adding a couple of huge rides

Six Flags Ohio will be the breakthrough park for 2001 because it will have one of the most diverse coaster collections in not only Ohio but the midwest. No one else can compare with a

Six Flags Ohio is destined to reach status as one of the best in the chain.

Well, SFGAm I would not consider breakthrough for 2001 but since jp is going to include the subject of diverse selection then I guess this park would fit the category.
1. Hyper-twister
2. Cyclone- clone twister
3. Speed racer
4. Super Invertigo
5. Impulse
6. Out and back racer
7. Mega-looper
8. Inverted
9. Standup
10. Kiddie
11. Theming looper

SFA might be it, they will have 6 new coasters in four years (although they did take aout two). The dutchman and SROS really will add a flavor to this park. I mean you can choose between flying over Gothom City or leaping tall buildings, there's a 1-2 combination right there.

SFMM, CP, PKI, SFGAM, SFGAdv, BGT, BGW, SFOG, SFOT, Kennywood, and Knott's are all breakthrough in their own rights. I think that either SFO, SFA, or PKD are 'bout to BLOW UP!!!!!!

Definitely Magic Mountain...that is if X is a success. X is like several coasters made into one. It's a hyper, a floorless, a roofless, a flying, a suspended, a vertical drop, a twisting, a turning, a looping, a backward-lifting, a purple, and a yellow coaster. Okay, maybe I kinda got out of hand, but anyhow, my point is that X , to me, will be the #1 coaster to take notice at in 2001. This will surely make MM a breakthrough park, not to mention its new record titles.

How could X be a flop Coasterer, it practically eliminates headbanging.

Playland Park, the park that is down the road from me. They built a sub-station on top of it and tore out the rides 5 years ago. Hey, the min-golf still stands, just with a bunch of weeds!

OKay Generally, break through means no one really notice the park before then all of a sudden BAM there they are. I wouldn't call MM or Cedar Point break through because they are already popular. I would say Six Flags Ohio, because they have to deal with the popularity of Cedar Point, Paramount's Kings Island and Sea World.

Number 1 And Only Cedar Point

Has to be Six Flags Ohio. When has any park gotten 4 World Class coasters in 2 years. It took Cedar Point 11 years to get that many(unless you count Mean Streak-then it's 9). But these 4 coasters have to be at least on the top 20 list in the chain. Definitely SFO. SDC comes in a close second. Then SFA third.
