Worlds of Fun Semi-Announces '05 plans!

Monday, September 6, 2004 11:10 AM
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***

All I can say is Cedar Fair does an amazing job with it's parks. Even with CP as the flagship, each park gets new attractions every 2 years at least it seems.

Dorney, new floorless
Knotts, new inverted
Valleyfair, last year Steel Venom, this year Riptide
Worlds of Fun, new spinning coaster and now this expansion

They don't ignore their parks like Six Flags does. And assuming that the operations are of quality of Cedar Point, I'm sure they are doing a great business.

If Cedar Fair had 20+ parks to manage, I'm sure a couple of the parks would be neglected, much as Six Flags does.

It is more like Six Flags should stop spending millions of dollars adopting babies if they can't take care of them all...:) *** Edited 9/6/2004 5:20:10 PM UTC by TalonJosh1491***

Yeah, Six Flags should get rid of some parks and sell them to Cedar Fair.

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.

It's pretty clear there are exceptions both ways for both companies. SFGAm is a park that doesn't get ignored and is of course a SF park.

On the other hand, Michigan's Adventure hasn't got much love from Cedar Fair.

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.

No, the top ten wooden coaster I'm sure you're referring to is Shivering Timbers and it was built in 1998. That was a couple of years before the CF buyout. CF bought MIA in 2001 I believe.

As far as water park enhancements go, I have no idea. *** Edited 9/7/2004 4:25:42 AM UTC by Scream Machine***

CP semi-announced their plans??? What have they announced for 2005? There's rumors of a few flat rides, but no more than rumors.

Good to see some bucks going into WOF.

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!

And look...no mention of SF (doh!).

Shivering Timbers was built in 1998, 3 years before CF aquired MiA.


as well as various water park enhancements?

The cabanas hardly count and they're the only water park activity added since 2001.


And I belive they are on record saying that when the park can stand on its own, it will get an addition.

So where's the beef? MiA had a record attendence last year; Kinzel stated in last year's conference call that MiA impressed them with double-digit increases in attendance.
