Was wondering where "California's Great Adventure" was.

Thought it might be half-way between Great America and Magic Mountain.... ;~P

Yeeeeeeeee super excited for this one. I was at the park on Saturday for the Haunt, and the theater is already shut down and under construction. (The downside is they usually have a horror-themed motion-movie in the 4D theater for Haunt, so they are not doing that this year). As a fan of both the park, and a huge fan of Mass Effect, I can't wait for this!!

Of course they do exaggerate quite a bit. Rather than a "new attraction", they're really just changing the movie in the 4D theater. The movie has gone from Days of Thunder, to a generic Indiana Jones type thing, to SpongeBob, to Happy Feet, with a few other randoms mixed in there. The props and décor is usually not too impressive, due to only being there a few seasons.

But after all that being said, still going to be very cool!

Oh yeah and the title needs a correction... "California's Great America", not "Adventure" ;)

Now Carowinds is getting a Plants Vs. Zombies attraction: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20151008005130/en/PopCap-Game...haH2flViko

It would appear that CF and EA have made some kind of deal.

Can Cedar Point get a Sims attraction and maybe Kings Island get a Pogo.com attraction? Word Whomp for everyone!

Michigan's Adventure can get a Spore attraction because nobody cares anyway.

CP's EA attraction should be from the Madden franchise... That would be cool, being in the middle of a larger-than-life football game! But I'm sure the NFL would want a pretty hefty licensing fee.

Just thought of a great theme for a new coaster!

Lots of headbanging on that one.
