I personally don't want to see a huge steel coaster at HW. In the future I'd love to see a mine train, spinning coaster or mouse and possibly a Powderkeg type launched coaster. But then again, something akin to Expedition G Force wouldn't be bad. Still hoping for a new woodie with plenty of curves.
Somehow I find it funny that no matter what park we're dealing with, the first things out of people's mouths are "GCI woodie!" and "Intamin Hyper!", usually in that order. Face it, Holiday World isn't going to build a gigantic Intamin mega coaster...
Actually if you would read the rest of the blog, you would see that next year they will have a record breaking expansion (More so than the current record expansion of this year). It has also been stated to expect to hear something sooner than later (as in before their usually late year announcement). What ever it is, it should be good. I can't think of anything in my mind (from the looks, and reviews as my first trip will be there this June) that appears to be an bad investment, of any form.
The stakes are high for anything they build. They already have two of the greatest coasters in the world. Only thing they can really do is build the best. That or the world's tallest, fastest, longest water slide.
From the way I am reading the description of the trees being cut down, it is not one area but a line of them so I would think a terrain coaster instead of a twister. (assuming it is a coaster of course) Another terrain woodie would be nice, does anyone build suspendeds anymore?, or maybe a mine train. I still think HW would be perfect for an Intamin mini-hyper like ExGF or Goliath (WW).
RavenTTD, I don't see anything to make one think that it's a straight line of trees. It only says that they have been removed very precisely. Assuming it's a coaster (which it very well might not be) they could remove the trees for any layout. They just want to remove as few as possible.
Just read the Blog and all I can say is "Darn you Paula!" The blog is very addictive and this one gets the creative wheels turning. If if turns out to be a new coaster, then all I can say is YEAH! Man what a great season that will be - new coaster at WOF and perhaps one at HW!
