    Cedar Fair Adding In Park Advertising

    Here are a couple of big things I found concerning. 1) Cedar Fair management predicted in 2015, 2016, and 2017 that they would meet their goal of having an Adjusted EBITDA of 500+ million by early 2018. The chart in today's presentation shows they moved the goal to $575 million Adjusted EBITDA by 2023 because they have had two years of negative EBITDA growth and were unable to achieve the goal. 2) If 2019 is another weak year, future growth of the dividend will be reconsidered or reviewed. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4240755-cedar-fair-l-p-fun-ceo-richard-zimmerman-q4-2018-results-earnings-call-transcript?page=12

    Cedar Fair Adding In Park Advertising

    Think of all the untapped ad space on the Top Thrill Dragster tower. Listening to the earnings call this morning and looking at the presentation Cedar Fair provided was a bit alarming. The new long term strategy gave me deja vu of Shapiro's strategy for Six Flags in 2006.
  3. Lots of construction photos and a video can be found on the following site: http://www.altecbuildingsystems.com/electric-installation/six-flags-jackson-nj/

    Disney Parks additions/removals

    No, demand is already so high that they don't need to waste money on marketing right now. https://seekingalpha.com/article/4238411-walt-disney-company-dis-ceo-robert-iger-q1-2019-results-earnings-call-transcript?part=single

    Six Flags Brazil (Hopi Hari)

    What a complicated mess. https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=pt&u=https://www.seudinheiro.com/hopi-hari-deixou-os-bancos-de-fora-da-recuperacao-judicial-e-eles-foram-para-briga/&prev=search https://www.seudinheiro.com/hopi-hari-deixou-os-bancos-de-fora-da-recuperacao-judicial-e-eles-foram-para-briga/
  6. This makes it sound like it would be easy to get around any exclusivity deal by moving a B&M Invert from another park to Kings Dominion. Perhaps Talon from Dorney or Patriot from Worlds of Fun.
  7. A Mack Rides X-Treme Spinning coaster like Time Traveler would really stand out from the competition and would be my top choice for the next coaster. It seems every major park needs an inverted coaster, so I could see a B&M Invert larger than Banshee in the future.
  8. Going 10 ft. higher than Kings Dominion gives them the tallest coaster in Virginia. The spike and tophat should be around 315 ft. tall.
  9. https://www.kingsdominion.com/blog/2019/park-update This isn’t surprising, but it is the second coaster removed in the last few years without a new coaster being added.
  10. BGWFans.com managed to get a copy of the site plans for the new 315 ft. tall Intamin LSM coaster coming to Busch Gardens Williamsburg in 2020. The link below has a full breakdown of the layout. https://bgwfans.com/2019/project-madrid-site-plans/

    Construction starts on $707 mil Dubai Six Flags park

    https://www.reuters.com/article/emirates-six-flags/dxb-entertainments-says-six-flags-dubai-put-on-hold-over-finance-idUSC6N1ZF022 It will be interesting to see if there is any truth to what Screamscape recently posted. 2020 could be an interesting year for Six Flags additions if DXB Entertainments is unable or unwilling to pay for the rides already delivered to Dubai. This could be why Six Flags sent out surveys about the Mack PowerSplash and B&M Dive Machine in November.
  12. Here is a video about the coasters posted by Theme Park Crazy. Sandy's Blasting Bronco (Intamin Launch) will go through the layout once, then the train will rotate 180 degrees on a turntable and go through the layout backwards.

    Six Flags Additions for 2019

    Six Flags Over Texas is adding some new entertainment in 2019. Splash! Water Parade has six interactive floats that will run twice daily from July 8th - August 4th. I could see this showing up at other parks in the chain if it proves successful. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1975946689127566&set=gm.1930121453781749&type=3&theater&ifg=1 Picture posted by Richard Shilhanek on the Texas Thrill Seekers facebook group.

    Six Flags Additions for 2019

    You might get your RMC Raptor in 2020 at Deno’s Wonder Wheel. It is one of the options being considered. https://old.reddit.com/r/rollercoasters/comments/afwwek/advice_on_new_coaster/
  15. The footers were completed a long time ago, but they are most likely targeting an opening around Memorial Day. I think SkyHigh Coasters LLC is erecting the rides for SFGAdv, SFGAm, and SFDK this year. It looks like Maxx Force is going up quickly, so they will probably come here next.
