  1. Good News! https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/2018/10/17/kentucky-kingdom-gets-approval-new-flyer-roller-coaster/1673394002/ I thought it was well done, but wished there was more detail and that the interviews with Ed Hart were longer. Yes, these are cheap coasters and nothing is stopping Six Flags from buying them if they were interested.
  2. This could get ugly, Kentucky Kingdom is threatening to cancel Kentucky Flyer. I think the only way to make this park a long term success is for the park to buy the land and parking they are currently leasing. If that isn’t possible, this may end up being another Astroworld situation. https://www.courier-journal.com/story/money/companies/2018/10/16/kentucky-kingdom-theme-park-threatens-drop-new-roller-coaster-plans/1657753002/

    Uninformed opinion would be more accurate.

    2020 and Beyond Speculation at SFGA

    Due to King Cobra being removed, I am thinking it’s going to be a dry park and water park year. So I am going with either a flat ride (Zamperla Endeavour) & Proslide RocketBlast/Flying Saucer water coaster or kids areas revamp & Proslide RocketBlast/Flying Saucer water coaster.

    SeaWorld Orlando Infinity Falls

    This ride looks great! I could see more parks adopting Seaworld's financial strategy with this type of ride to help offset the operating costs. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/tourism/os-cfb-seaworld-infinity-falls-extras-20180828-story.html

    Kings Island Coaster Removal

    I imagine the trains and some of the parts will be sent to Carowinds in order to keep Nighthawk running a few more years. I wonder how much longer Batwing at SFA will be around, it was closed most of this season.

    Fright Fest 2018

    Six Flags is expanding the coffin challenge to all parks. Apparently they underestimated the number of idiots willing to try this. More than 25000 people already registered at Six Flags St. Louis. http://investors.sixflags.com/news-and-events/press-releases/2018/09-27-2018-095912899

    Kings Island Coaster Removal

    The #RestInPiecesKI on the sign makes me think the ride will be cut up and scrapped. I am leaning towards Vortex based on some of the wording and clues. https://www.wcpo.com/money/consumer/dont-waste-your-money/vortex-or-firehawk-the-kings-island-coaster-leaving-is
