The next big thing...

A coaster that runs around the entire park propelled by LIM's and loops in and around every coaster at the park. (maybe)

Maybe a 500-ft dueling flyer (my personal choice)

A coaster that connects between GL, KI & CP called the "Buckeye Express"

Or yet, a coaster that hit 200 mph.

Just a few crazy ideas to toss out.

Hey! I have a coaster exactly like at my own park, *Dan's Wonderland*. A great place to hang out with some friends that look exactly like you, then scream on every drop of every coaster no matter what its size...............Oh, wait. That was on RCT2, my bad.........;)

i'm sure Kinzel has one or more of these nutball ideas floating around.

Yes, Cedar Fair needs to make a stronger commitment to wood.

I think they're starting to do that with Renegade. Give it time... wood will come to other Cedar Fair parks.

^ LOL, I think of "commitment to wood" as being WAY less about *building* wood, and WAY more about *caring* for the existing wood.

Even moreso now that the PPs are part of the equation... ;)

Very true. I guess I'm just hoping that once Cedar Fair guests get to experience what a wood coaster is supposed to be like, they'll pressure the park to make their other ones behave the same way.

While were on the subject of wood. Does anyone know if any companies have tried making a 'wood' coaster with synthetic wood. (I've seen Gazebo's in Amish country made with this stuff as well as decks and buildings.)

What info I have found is that it is stronger and resists warping better than wood.

While Im sure there is enough strength in plastic/wood to make decks/gazebo's and such. I doubt it has the same flexibility and strength that real does.

Chuck, not saying there isn't material that could be used.
