What should go to PKD?

I hate to say this, but I don't see PKD getting a hyper any time soon. Two hours south is Apollo's Chariot at BGW and two hours north is S:ROS at SFA. I think the park wants coasters different from the closest competition.

Thats right, a nice, big Arrow Hyper. 3-36 pass. trains giving you about 1600 per hr.

Well if you take a look at the last few coasters PKD has added (with exception of Ricochet) they've all been of the technologically advanced variety.

V:TBC: launched inverted,FOF: enclosed LIM launched multi element,HS:XLC: compressed air launch.So it seems that PKD is looking for a cutting edge type of coaster & a floorless is a big step in that direction so I think they might be inclined to install one for their next coaster which will go over big in the eyes of the GP,most of whom are unaware of SFGRADV's floorless coaster Medusa.

Will it happen in 04? I'm not entirely sure because word has it that SF has purchased three B&M's for 04 already,one being a flyer & the other two being floorless coasters,but we can't be too sure yet because last year everyone had said that SF had bought two intamin woodies for 03 & obviously that never happened.
