As I was reading the Denver Rocky Mountain News this morn, I ran into the editorial section. As I looked at the letters to the editor, I spotted an eye-catching title "Elitch Gardens Anex". This intuiged me to read on and it turns out that the writer had not been past the park in a while and was shocked to see what appeared to be Elitch's accross the highway, until he realized that it was the new stadium. Now I know that you read this for the catchy title so heres the idea:
"Then it dawned on me that the new design may, in fact,be a real stroke of genius. Why not extend the roller coaster located in the adjacent park to the new stadium as a commuter train, of sorts, and alleviate some potential parking problems?"
Now thats a great idea.

I had that idea for a while. That's my STC Shuttle Transit Coaster. I mentioned it in a thread a few months back. Not only does it have unique courses each direction but it can be used to empty out a park quicker only running full trains in one direction.
2000 stats: 135 coasters in 26 parks
