HW&SS 2012: The Hints & Puns Begin

Tuesday, July 26, 2011 7:17 AM

This was posted on Facebook by HW&SS aka Paula:

Working on choosing still shots from our animation to use during our 2012 Announcement next Wednesday. Feeling very WOOZY! (If you're in the park on August 3, you're invited to join us in the Holiday Theater for the announcement at 11am CDT.)

This is earlier than normal but later than The Voyage. Woozy seems to make me think of a flat that spins. Although, I don't know too many flats that would require animation and an early announcement. Let the ideas flow...

spinning coaster?

I would be very happy with a spinning coaster. A mid size steel ride (non-inverting) would be a good addition to the park. Something larger than Howler but less physically intimidating than Raven would fill a void in the park's coaster line up.

Wouldn't object to something larger, but I know that my family would benefit from a smaller ride.

Finally getting my KMG Afterburner... ;)

I'm placing my bets on an S&S Scream Swing.

If that was the case, wouldn't the clue be "Wizzy" as opposed to "Woozy??

Zac Spin. I like the name too. Though Barfy would have been even better.

A new tea cups ride in Thanksgiving called 'Pocahurler'.

Well, we also know Paula can't really handle the spin rides, I recall her mentioning that right around the time Revolution debuted. That helps lend credence to the spin ride camp.

I'm not quite willing to go spinning coaster (or any coaster) yet, because they just did their enthusiasts poll a month ago, I don't think they could go from poll ideas to product art that fast, and I thought on the first night of HoliWood Nights when they spoke of the steel coaster project, Leah mentioned it was not for next season.

Animation could be useful, remember not all park enthusiasts have a photographic memory of flat rides, particularly if they don't call it by its trade name (very likely), and even more needed if the park comes up with something special or new.

Just last night I was thinking how the park could use a Sleighride - call it Santa's Sleighride - a Sleighride of course, in flat rides speak is a ride of the music express/ flying bobs variety (a Musik Ride) that is already themed to sleighs.(A flying bobs with sleigh runners on the bottoms of the tubs?) It's a ride concept older than time, but still a very popular one, at least at county and state fairs. It's a ride type the park doesn't have, and hasn't had since I can remember, fits into the whole family friendly thing. Where it falls apart, is you wouldn't really need extensive animation for that And Paula wouldn't be challenged to find just the right freeze frames of the animation to use for her still pieces. That would seem to indicate an aerial ride. I could firmly board the KMG Afterburner (or similar) camp. It's also a ride that is trending hot right now.
