First off, I really, really hope this doesn't turn into a CP vs. MM thread, that is not my intent. I prefer Cedar Point to Magic Mountain any day of the week, even if I'm not a fanboy. I know the better park.
However, many enthusiasts don't consider Superman: The Escape a coaster. SFMM does, but apparently Cedar Point doesn't, since they claim to have the most coasters anywhere.
Next year, however, even if you don't count Superman: The Escape, Cedar Point will at least be 'tied' with SFMM, even though, depending on who you are and what you consider a coaster, SFMM could also be considered to have 17 coasters, while CP has 16, since SFMM is adding a new flyer, and CP is adding a flat.
So, and this is just your thoughts and opinions, not what they shouldn't or should do, do you think CP will still claim to be the "Park with the most Coasters"? Guiness Book can't dispute the fact that SFMM will at the very least have 16 next year, unless they take out Flashback (or something else). Does that mean they both tie for Most Coasters?
True about TTD, chuck. Actually, I've heard that Flashback isn't going anywhere from more than one person. I'm not saying it won't, and I think if it doesn't open, it should, but it seems unlikely.
Joe, having the 'most' means no one else has as much. If you and I have more money than everyone else, but both have the same amount, then neither of us have a 'most'. As for construction markers, I know they're getting a Screamin Swing next year, a coaster? Doubt it...
CP will not get rid of WWL at this point, if they do, it has to be for a coaster. Out of the 14 thimes that I was at the Point thus far, WWL ha a line of at least 15min. People like log flumes because you can ride one anytime without getting soaked.
Though, I see Jeff's point. Wicked Twister will not open the rest of the year, also this includes TTD, which is in the middle of its yearly crisis.
More to the point though, if SFMM only counted their operating coasters, Geauga Lake would have more than them!

Who told you CP is adding a flat for the 2006 season?
I think retheaming A.R to Disaster Transport was a better business discision then if they put in a Screamin Swing for next year. I think its a dumb idea when they basically have the same thing (MaXair) and that was put in for this year.
