GL's Steel Venom probably also on it's way out....

In that case, I'll confirm that, 1) A CF rep was at Eastcoaster, and 2) it was announced that Steel Venom will not operate in 2007 and will be moved to another park unnamed at this time.

^If you mean by 'unnamed' Dorney Park, then yes. :)

^^Yes I know, what you mean -- however considering this is his 4th or even more 'personality' on the board, he probably knows that.

^Ohhh, good point lol, I should have thought of that *slaps forehead*. I'm not doubting the confirmation though. I'd like to see it come to Dorney. *** Edited 2/5/2007 5:25:21 AM UTC by P18***

Do you have a link/source to this? Thanks...Sorry for the missed spelled words.

Sorry, it's late, but Coasterkid200, "Where was the last place you remember seeing the missed spelled words?" It's usually pretty close by.

I heard a guy on public radio who wrote a book about how to find lost items, and he found out that most of them are within 15 ft. of where you last remember having them last. Damned if he hasn't been right just about everytime. Other people I've passed this information on to have had just as much success with the theory. So take a look in that area.

Hopefully, you realize that I'm just teasing you Coasterkid200 and in the future when your spelling isn't correct, you will have misspelled the word/s.

Steel Venom is gracing the front page of Crain's Cleveland Business, and there's confirmation of its removal.

That is a direct link to the article. It should redirect you after a few seconds. If not, go to Crains Cleveland and on the main page, there's a rotation of three articles. The Geauga Lake article is the first one, click "Read More." I found that you get redirected to the login if you click the image, but if you click "read more" you'll be redirected to the free version of the article.

rollergator's avatar Swoosh....are you SAYING the unnamed park is Dorney? Or are you taking a guess? Just wondering... :)

The Impulses are pretty loud, but I guess Dorney could build a nice "themed" station to provide soundproofing to keep the neighbors...quieter... ;)

This is highly unfortunate.

I've sung big praises of GL for the past couple of years due to the ride/waterpark mix that was unbeatable anywhere, but the reasons to continue are disappearing fast (also the contribution of my revenue dollars).

Overall, I don't see this ending well for GL - it'll end up being a much smaller regional park (as CF and some others on this site want it to be), but who truly knows if more rides have to go to for the park to reach the equilibrium of expense/profit CF is willing to sustain there.

It's sad to think what could have been...

rollergator's avatar Doug... I can't say that I *want* GL to be a smaller regional park....but it's not about what WE want. it's about what CF feels is best for their bottom line.

There's a BIG distinction, for me at least, between *predicting* what I believe will happen and declaring what I'd LIKE to happen...

Given ALL the options in the world, I'd go back in time, have *decent* SF ownership (unlike what SF had then), *and* have them make the park more competitive with CP...Ohio really COULD have supported 3 mega-parks...Ohioans are just plain crazy about parks, LOL.

Alas, my fantasy will not happen. Next most likely (and desireable, IMO), moving them to another CF park *in N. America* that CAN support the increased budgets, and where we can still enjoy those rides. Simply having GL suddenly become capable of financing rides like SV and X-Flight is kinda like saying a hyper would get MiA over the 1M mark....kinda... ;)

The only nearby coasters that Dorney's neighbors don't have a problem with are the ones in Hershey.

^ I guess they don't like tourist dollars because Dorney is really the only reason to go to Allentown. :) Well, that and the DCI competition in August.

Well if SV goes in the middle of Dorney the locals wont have a problem.

They'd still find a reason to complain. Either they'd STILL say it's too noisy, or the color would be an eyesore, or the type of ride would "attract the wrong element." Personally, I don't see why they have a right to complain - the park was there first. They chose to move next to the park.

And that's exactly what Geauga Lake was before the rebranding and that's what CF is bringing the park back to.

I'm not happy that a couple major rides are being removed but if it means keeping the park going then I'm all for it.

It was also noted that a thrill ride will have cameras installed to record your ride as a souvenir. My guess is that Dominator will get the cameras along with new seats.
