  1. It's good to see Cedar Fair "up their game" in that way;although coasters and other thrill rides are the main reason I go to any park,I appreciate other features like shows and special events. And is that "Forbidden Frontier" anything like what Disney is/was doing?I remember Disney had something called "Treasure Hunt" that was an interactive search around Adventureland,and it featured animatronic displays that were hidden/disguised by themeing.
  2. I know this is wishful thinking,but with Volcano's removal KD would have the space for a chain-lift style invert or better yet a brand-new version of The Lost World.The new version could have a higher capacity/more efficient flume ride with better animatronics and a backwards section,a newer version of Time Shaft,and Flight Of Fear could be re-themed(and the MCBR removed)and made part of the new mountain.
  3. Here's some ideas for themed area music: Hurricane Harbor-steel drum bands Boardwalk-classic surf rock(like "Tequila" and "Wipeout") Movie Town-movie soundtracks of course Plaza Del Carnavale-Santana,ZZ Top,Gypsy Kings(or at least royalty-free music that is similar in style).
  4. I'm all for anything that could enhance what Great Adv. has already got-I'm actually surprised they haven't done it/tried it sooner.Could anything like that be used for the lake also?
  5. The Great ADVENTure Calendar lately has been bringing up lots of great ideas:getting rid of the painball building;new LEDs for the Big Wheel;replacing lost panels and band organ on the carousel,etc..I wouldn't mind putting off a new coaster if 2 or more of those ideas were done in the near future.
  6. A real band organ should used for the carousel-either a renovated antique or brand new.The musical possibilities are endless nowadays for carousels:patriotic(for July 4),Christmas carols,etc..
  7. Severn-Lamb makes replica paddlewheel boats that could be used.And judging from Google satellite pictures,there seems to be a small island on the opposite side of the lake(across from Skull Mt./Seaport area).Is there any possibility of having a boat ride around that island(preferably with a prop or three along the way)?
  8. Is there any way that a temporary pool could be built?Because with the success of the new Aquaman movie I'm sure Great Adv. has a little regret tearing down Ft. Independence.
  9. They could also add bamboo and "elephant ear" plants in addition to the other cold-hardy palms,etc..HH could also use gas-powered tiki torches and tiki statues.
  10. It would really be cool if they could somehow incorporate a splashdown element that uses the ocean!!
  11. Under a similar topic not long ago I suggested rethemeing the area of S:UF/GL/Parachutes to a COAST GUARD base:basically the parachutes would be a "rescue training simulator" and GL would get sit-down trains and be called Matawan Maneater.
  12. Supposedly the Big Wheel started with 27,000 lights and is now down to 15,000 +;I would love it if LEDs could replace ALL of them.
  13. Would people still be paying for soda or would it be like Holiday World were soda is free?
  14. I hope nobody finds out my favorite Christmas song is "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer"!!!!
