Which ride would you remove and replace?

Recommended Posts

Could we nominate the paintball building for removal, and opening of "Dream Street"?

 

I would volunteer to dismantle that building myself if they opened up Dream Street again! :chainsaw:

I don't know if I'd consider "Superman Ultimate Flight" a waste of space. It's squandered opportunity. The ride would be better placed in "Movietown", or remain as part of an expanded "Golden Kingdom". There's enough land there to infuse trees and landscaping to make it look less like a lawn ornament. Dropping the "Superman" theme and re imagining it would work wonders. Having 4 staff members checking restraints would work too. Trees aren't that expensive, and "The Golden Kingdom" was made to look like a jungle vs. it's original concrete carnival theme (Kiddie Kingdom).

 

The entire "Boardwalk" games section is a waste. Move the games elsewhere, like the abandoned storefronts along "The Golden Kingdom: Outpost". Expand both"The Golden Kingdom" and "Plaza de Carnival". Keep the "Parachute" as is (with a repaint to one color besides yellow or blue). Use the original Premier Parks vision and expand on it. Take "The Dark Knight" out of its box and relocate it as an "open air family coaster" within "The (expanded) Golden Kingdom". Add a "Jungala" element too, and add real sit down restaurants and a Mariachi Stage.

 

"Skull Mountain", "Green Lantern", and "The Dark Knight" are far more offensive to the eye than "Superman". I would be willing to trade both "Superman" and "Green Lantern" for a new, record breaking "B&M Dive Machine". A "Port Royal" retheming of the current "Skull Mountain"/"Neptune's Kingdom" area would also be required. A lot can be done with little money, especially with losing two marquee attractions to smaller parks.

 

How would a flying coaster fit into the Golden Kingdom? Your idea is great, but I can't think of much for a jungle flying coaster

Try it in the back and you'll change your mind. When I rode it in the front I really didn't think it was much and I can see why you think like that, but in the back for some reason you get DRAGGED down the drop (I'm not exaggerating) and it's just stupidly fun getting whipped around and not really seeing it.

Skull Mountain is a good fun coaster. I'm not saying that it should be removed but if someone said me that "only one indoor coaster is staying and one will to be removed, pick one", I would choose to keep Skull Mountain and get rid of the Dark Knight.

We ride both every visit but if I was choosing one to keep and one to get rid of that's how I would go.

If I had to remove one ride, I would have to choose Jolly Roger since it's not too popular in comparison to certain other rides. I would replace it with some sort of compact flat ride like a new Rotor or something.
