Hey, Worlds of Fun has been handing these out the past few days with the maps of the park. I'm not really sure what to think about it, although it makes me excited that the park is expanding! Credit goes to Knux from Worlds of Fun.org
I said Semi-Announced because there is still very reliable sources which are saying that WOF is also getting a Revolution ride. This all makes me pretty excited. Discuss! *** Edited 9/6/2004 3:14:24 PM UTC by Rollerfreak8***
I personally think Six Flags is doing a descent job with what it has. They've made some admittedly bad decisions in the past and probably will in the future, but to say that all of Cedar Fair parks get expansions every two years is stretching it. Before this year WOF got almost no loving from the corporation with park updates. They still don't have a descent looping coaster, but the closest thing they did have to one is no longer standing.
And what about Michigan Adventure? That park has been getting the **** treatment when compared to other Cedar Fair parks. I mean come on, you buy a park like that for a measly $12,000,000 and can't afford to put a descent expansion in it when you build coasters costing twice as much as that in other parks.
I'm not saying Six Flags is better at spreading the money, but take a look at Cedar Fair, they aren't overly generous with most of their parks either.
Ok guys, can we keep this on topic and talk about the announcement, not about if SF or CF is better!
Personally, I think this is a good expansion for the park. If what my sources have been telling me is correct, then WOF can expect something BIG next year. So, its good that they are building something to accomodate the guests that they will surely gain next year!

Correct me if I am wrong, but wasnt a top ten wooden coaster built under Cedar Fair's management as well as various water park enhancements? And I belive they are on record saying that when the park can stand on its own, it will get an addition.
Looks like a nice addition for Worlds of Fun, I imagine some major expansion is planned if they are going the resort route.
About the WoF information that RollerFreak linked to... these cabins/cottages look identical to those at Cedar Point (which I love). Sadly though there does not seem like a lack of lodging in the Wof/OoF area, so I hope this will still work well for them.
BTW, these would also be great at GL, and would make a lot of sense! I know I would stay in them!
