I still don't understand why a park exec. would want a TA2000 in their park.

Whatever they add, I hope it's not as short as Volcano. But because the TA2K is also a prototype I wouldn't hold my breath. PKD seems to have been focusing too much on kiddie rides & the waterpark as of late, so a new coaster would be great, but PKD is almost devoid of flat-rides which I think makes it kind of boring.

i think that it is another thing to get people all excited. they will probably just get a coasters that goes 350ft and will be horrible just like mf. thats what i think.

I rode the Force last week and I disagree that it's horrible. I will agree that the speed is so fast that I honestly don't remember some of the track and I rode it 3 times. The low airtime as compared to other hypercoasters might also you make you like it less, but it's still powerful anyway.

why would PKD want to have three launched roller coasters at one park. when We Need Either A Hyper Or Good looping To Compete With SFA & BGW

It's been confirmed, it is a Thrust Air called Hypersonic-XLC. 180ft up and back down at 90 degrees. Sounds good to me, although it represents yet another low capasity "gimmick" for Paramount. I would like to ride it one day though.
