I just cant help thinking what CF is going to do to a park like KD. I mean it has a good number of visits every year, but yet, compare the quality to BGE and it is lacking.
I no CF are all about rides - which is not a bad thing. And I love that the re-opened FoF. But will the concentrate on the water park more than the hard park - as I fear.
I still know a few people that work there, and they say the place is buzzing at the moment, with rumours a-pleanty. I think the bottom line is, that the park needs a new major coaster - otherwise people will start choosing BGE over it!
Well, what type and ize of coaster would be a good fit? i've never been to KD, but I'm guessing because of Kinzel's love of those guys, we'll probably see one there. Might be something simlar to Maverick.
Give CF a year or two. Look what they did with Geauga Lake. It's now a good compliment to CP instead of the abomination SF made it. Then again, XFlight was (and is /w being reincarnated as Firehawk) a cool coaster)
I like Hypersonic. Apparently the ride will run until it is sold. I can see it moving on, it's the most "portable" looking ride in the park and probably has lost its novelty to many of the guests. Maybe they'll put a station for a new hyper where Hypersonic was. *** Edited 3/8/2007 8:58:25 PM UTC by Willh51***
From what I understand the park still plans to operate the ride for the 2007 season if they can't find a buyer real soon.While they're at it they can bulldoze Hurler as well.
I can't say that I'm sad to see it go & certainly won't miss it when it's finally gone,they can easily put something better in it's place....something preferably with better capacity as well as better reliability.
As for getting a new coaster didn't they just add IJ:TC last season? After looking closely at last year's map paying close attention to the water park I can see why they're making new additions to it this season...the waterpark definitely needs the additions that it's recieving in 2007 that's for sure.
A new coaster would be a fine addition though for the 08/09 season though depending on what the park plans to do with HS:XLC's footprint once it's gone.
