Im the #1 Canobie Lake Park Fan!!!These are my top 3 coasters:
1. S:RoS @ SFNE 2. Yankee Cannonball 3. Cyclone/B:TDK
I was wondering the same thing. I would've expected them to get a coaster. Why else would they have gotten the permission for it. I'm sure they'll start construction (if they're getting anything) in the winter. But since they didn't announce it with the other parks who knows if they're even gonna get it.
I was hoping so much for an Intamin hyper with airtime like S:ROS (at SFDL)
Maybe SFWoA shifted their focus to advertising rather than attractions. After all that commercial insulting CP is the one and only reason that the attendance was down 12%. No other reason just their advertisement. ;)
Six Flags, the only chain of parks that can manage to have stacking with a one train operation.

The ride was never confirmed. They won the zoning variance for the height limit but that was all.
"Escuse me, can you tell me where the heck the Mystery Lodge is"?
As far as I know... It is a fact. I haven't heard a single person at the park say that it wont be built. And to go two years without a major new thrill-ride attraction is suicide in this fast-paced Ohio park battle.
I am sure they will announce it, if there is a it, when CP announces theirs. They need to be able to compete, and not let people automatically make up their mind that they are going to CP this year.
It is only August, so give it time. Or maybe there isn't a it, or maybe it is coming next year, who knows.
I am sure they will announce it, if there is a it, when CP announces theirs.
Yes, I know I quoted myself...Zero-G, I am saying the exact same thing as you, that SF will announce theirs after CP most likely.
"Six Flags would be nuts to shoot before Cedar Point. CP's new coaster will gain world-wide attention... the hyper announcement will get blown out of the water if SF goes before Cedar Point."
And you dont think that by going *second* Six Flags does NOT run the same risk of being upstaged? Okay, assume CP goes first:
CP: Here is our new EARTH-SHATTERING COASTER!
a little bit later..
WoA: Here is our really good ride!
You do NOT think that people will be like "So?..look what THEY are doing (referring to CP)?" To me, it seems like "Damned if you do, damned if you dont." They'd *almost* be better off shrouding their new ride/attraction in mystery ala Tomb Raider.
--who is daily appreciating more how PKI has handled the Ohio competition...
And you guys think that SFWoA will tell the truth about their new ride, saying it is just average compared to what CP is getting. No, they will say it is the best thing yet, show captions of Goliath, and lead everybody on.
Half the people here in Denver think we have the only flying coaster in the world, since SF said it was the first of it's type. When really, it is the first with a Sprial lift and first that is made by Zamperla. The GP don't know the difference.
Well, depending on who is making this hyper, they could say "World's", "First", "Only" prhases. They did it with TFC here in Denver, like I said, half the people here think we have the only flying coaster, but we simply have the "World's First" **cough**Zamperla**cough** "Flying Coaster"!
Plus, who is to say they are building your standard coaster. They have only gotten the ok to build at that height, so really, they COULD be coming out with something new, something great, and dare I say, something better than CP's new ride!?!
Personally, I think SFWoA will wait till next year to install anything. That way everybody will have ridden "it" at CP.
But remember, I neither own nor run the park ;)

I love those ideas. Unfortunatly, Six Flags=Family Park is rarely a true statement(I knew Algebra would help me one day).
I think a 4D is a little extreme, but maybe in the future. Afterall, they already got a flying coaster.
With SF's current financial woes, spending even more on their current "Money Pit" doesn't make sense. People make statements about clueless SF corporate management, don't under-estimate them. What they tell the public, and what they know are two different things. When their stock went from almost $19 to under $4, that was a huge wake up call. You will never see "Customer Service Issues" given as an excuse by management. Just like Burger King will never admit their french fires suck.
SF got the approval from the locals. Nothing says they need to use it now. It would be smart for them to wait. As a PKS stock holder (FUN and BUD too) I will be agitated if they go capital happy.
