Mamoosh's avatar And you're guessing an AQUATRAX based on all the wood and steel rails that are at the construction site? lol

No, I'm just say that because of all the speculation with Maverick in '06.

On a lighter side, this coaster could be called the "Big Angry Rabid Feline, " or BARF, for short.

Jaguar would only make sense if they had a South American area of the park. Then again they have Boomerang in Africa and a kangaroo ride in Europa so thats irrelevant I guess and the average person wouldnt have a clue anyway.

If its in Africa, then I could Cheetah, Jackal, or Hyena. Maybe Sphinx or Panther, which could apply to any big cat with black fur. If its in Orient then perhaps something like Bengal.

You could call it Lepord in the Asia section. Every heard of Snow Lepords?

How about "Lioness?" Everybody knows it's the females that do the real hunting in the Lion pride.

Isn't WOF getting Geauga Lake's carousel and Ferris wheel?

Americana Ferris Wheel is going to KD. It has already shown up there.

As far as the Carousel -- yes, well at least the last time I heard anything about it.

^Are they planning on doing something with the one in Europa then? An additional Carousel at WOF seems pointless.

How many Carousels does CP have?
-Congo Falls - 90 rides (one day) -Murder of the Orient Express (1980-2003)

3 if you include Cedar Downs, which isnt quite the same but CP is quite a bit bigger. I thought maybe Le Carrousel at WOF wasnt in very good shape, in which case this would be an indirect replacement.

I must say...if a coaster is going in next season, they have done a decent job of keeping it quiet. No 'trademark' found, no leaked layout, nothing.... *** Edited 8/9/2008 3:33:53 AM UTC by SVLFever***

Building Permits have been entered: http://kivaweb.kcmo.org/kivanet/2/permit/summary/index.cfm?pid=1329065&jur=KCMO


I don't think they left any doubt on what is going to be built next year.

-----

The carousel from GL is a lot bigger that Le Carousel. As of right now, I do not believe any decision has been made as to where it will be located or even IF it will replace Le Carousel.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar Isn't Le Carousel a plastic horse "new age" model and the one from Geaga a wooden horse, vintage model? Would be nice to see a large, vintage carousel at WoF. Will add some character to all of the Cedar Fairization that has been done. Would be nice if they could redo the entrance plaza and put the GL carousel there, but I highly doubt that's gonna happen. It would be a major rework of that area. The Scandi entrance lacks the atmosphere the old Americana entrance had, walking over the boat and toward the fountain. Would be nice if they could jazz it up.

There is enough room there in the Scandi courtyard they could put one of the carousels there.
