If it is wood pray for it not being built by Charles Dinn or they ll be sunk.

Charles Dinn isn't in the wood coaster business anymore. His daughter Denise formed CCI and was hired by S&S after CCI collapsed. Anyone know if she's still with S&S?

^ I *think* I recall hearing she was no longer with S&S, but I'm in no way sure of that...and IIRC, McNulty is the lead wooden designer for S&S now.

I think she works for GCI now. It suck's that CCI went out of bussiness in 2001. I liked CCI coaster's.

Keep your head high and your coasters higher.

Oh sorry for sounding so ignorant . I loved CCI the only thing I have ridden of theirs was Mega Zeph at Six flags new orleans. Which is amazing. I hope she can build better coasters than her dad

Considering her reputation in the idustry I'd find that very difficult to believe.

On that earlier rendering there looked a coaster going on the bottom of what is the new rendering. There certainly is enough space off the midway for a large coaster. :)

I heard she moved to Switzerland and B&M are changing their name to B&M&D.

Actually, it was 2002. I remember being in the hospital for a while without internet access and finding out later--I'm thinking it was late summer or early fall.

Actually, it was a great blessing that CCI went out of business. They probably still would've been desigining coasters that were never designed to handle a Gerstlauer train. People talk of getting bruised by the PTC's on The Voyage. Can you imagine that ride with a Gerstlauer?

The open area on the first version of the map looks huge. If they are planning on puttin a rollercoaster in there it will have to be huge.

If it is wood pray for it not being built by Charles Dinn or they ll be sunk. If they build a invert pray for it not being a vekoma slc unless it is one of the new ones like the one at magic springs arkansas which was supposed to go to jazzland thank god it didnt but is supposed to have some special feature on it the only reason i mentioned that was because a lot of starter outer parks put those in


Dude, Charlie Dinn has been retired for almost 20 years. ALso, Don't expect a huge coaster there at least in the first five years.

^^^^

As of August 2004, Dennis McNulty was not the lead designer of S&S, nor did he work for them, but I can't be sure as of after Aug. 2004.

I am not after seeing the new map but on the old one that was first posted i thought it might potentially be something huge becasue of the huge space left open in the northwestern part of the park

ACK!! They are going to be a Pepsi park. :)


That's not a bad thing. ;)

I have a theory about sodas in amusement parks...

Pepsi = good park
Coke = bad and/or severely mismanaged park.

The only exception to this theory is Dollywood.

But think about it..
Cedar Fair (not counting the Paramount parks but I suspect that will change), Holiday World, even Hersheypark this year. Pepsi.

Six Flags is Coke.

What about the handful of SF parks that could be considered managed correctly, or at least not mismanaged.

Silver Dollar City properties (aka HFEC owned parks) are all COKE parks. Don't go painting all COKE parks as evil or "bad" parks.

^Yes, but would you consider Adventureland and/or Disney "good" parks or "well-managed" parks? ;)

Disney isn't badly managed it's just packed all the time they can't do much about that. Right? Or are there other things I should know about before I go there this summer? (I'm going to Disney World) If there is any advice I need please let me know. I'm off to read some trip reports now.
