I think its going to be planet snoopy something like at MOA. So is this years expansion just going to be for kids amd families? Isnt Valleyfair getting close to adding another new rollercoaster? If anyone looks at the timeline its getting close to five years now and usualy every five years they add a new rollercoaster. Renegade was there last big one in 2007. I think they could phase out Mild Thing with the expansion and put a inverted in the center of the park around the corkscrew area. But they also have land down near Renegade build around it. Is Valleyfair going to be the last Cedar Fair park to get an B&M inverted?

It's posted on their website now.¤t_root=12

Looks like it will not be in a new area, but rather they will expand the KidWorks area. 5 Re-themed rides and 14 new rides/attractions. No mention of new family coaster.
