Nothing major will probably go in that spot for a while because it is at the far end of tha park which is very deserted.

Not very popular, never had high ridership and was very rough.

why didn't the park just put in new trains for the coaster like they did on Flight of Fear, because i thought the design was good.

B&M Rocks is right....the chances of a coaster going there are slim, at least for now. BGW needs to create an area that is a little more visual.

As far as flaming your #3 question, don't ask it in the first place. Using the word "sucks" in your question trivializes the point you might be making, and makes you appear to be quite juvenile. Spelling properly might help too.... Oh, and while I am at it, you need to change your signature to 3 lines or less. Jeff won't tolerate using so much space for things people don't care about.

Finally, I am still saddened by DFs departure. I expected it a long time ago, but regardless of what you heard, unless you rode it in its first year, you have no idea how good a ride it was, even for a short while. It obviously de-evolved into head-banging crud, but that still doesn't make it less an amazing effort for Arrow in the first place. The fact that the coaster was even built is a testimony to coaster enthusiasts everywhere. I will take a million Drachen Fires anyday over something safe and static like Viper at SFMM just because it dared to be different. Too bad the design just didn't work too well.

Yeah, well they all suck, and should be torn down. Please don't flame me.

You see, if you don't like a coaster that others happen to like (others including me) then if you don't like it, be my guest...Show you're displeasure, but please, if an opinion is that harsh, keep it yourself. I don't really think the above rides should be torn down. I'm just illustrating a point.

Try using a little grammar next time on that last sentence... it doesn't even make the littlest sense, no matter what language you try to read it in.

Also try to shorten your Signature... nobody cares to see your top 10 EVERY single post... MOST of the time, the signature is longer than the post. (read TOS).

P.S. learn how to spell Gwazi right.

According to the spokesperson in the Amusement Today article, no new ride or attraction will ever go in that spot. The plans are to make some sort of daycamp or something there.

I don't think an entire ride will be there, but I think parts of a ride, say a B&M flyer, will be located in that spot. The station would be more towards the main path.

The ride was closed to solve mechanical problems and other ride issues, but to fix it seemed not to be worth the cost. They tried to sell it but couldn't because a Bald Eagle planted a nest on the ride. Even after the eagle left, they could never find a agreeing buyer(at once, there was a small park in Ohio that was looking intoto buying it, but back down because of finacial trouble.) With no buyer, the choice was to dismantle it. Now, a coaster is not likely to go in that space again, but a a new ride is already in plan for the park for 2003(what it is, like Busch Gardens would ever let that out.)

Yup, wouldn't a new & unique ride like that pull the crowds into that area? Edit: I'm referring to IOArules' post.

Btw, that tip from RCT to build the best rides at the back of the park is utter BS.
