This is really hard. Only picking 5? Well as you can see I cheated a little. I would love to have so much back but I wouldn't take away much of the new if anything. I want the old with the new.

Here is my list:

5.  Aqua Spectacle/Fort Independence with the Dive and Dolphin shows

4. Stunt Shows (Batman Stunt Arena)/ Wild West Show (Great Arena)

3. Enterprise

2. Looping Starship

1. An 18 year old Me, I mean Rolling Thunder

Honorable Mentions: The Great American Scream Machine, Fireworks on the weekends (as mentioned by Njdevl9500), Lightning Loops, Haunted Castle, the Rotor, Monster Spin, Pretty Monster, Schwbinchen, Musik Express, Water Ski Spectacular, Paddle Boats… Anything that reminds me of the 70s and 80s.

1. Rides/attractions along the KingdaKa/El Toro pathway again instead of an empty (but now open!!) path.

2. A second Log Flume aka Hydro Flume

3. Constant shows in the barely used Theatres. Especially with recent investment in Movietown/Old Country, I feel as though now is the perfect time to introduce a summer show in the Showcase Theatre and The Stunt Arena.

4. Costumed superheros. Maybe it is just me, but I feel like I only see Looney Tunes walking around. Not sure if this is a thing of the past to 'bring back,' but it is definitely something the park should take advantage of.

5. Rolling Thunder 2.0

1. Freefall

2. Chiller or Lightning Loops (a shuttle coaster in general)

3. More shows, could include more characters

4. Other IP's (not just Time Warner)

5. Something to look forward to at the end of the day (Fiesta Texas has a laser show, could simply be fireworks like what's been said before)

Good news-Intermark Ride Group has a Freefall for sale!Other than that my choices are:

1-Scream Machine

2-Rolling Thunder with only lap bars

3-Chiller with newer OTSRs(the lap bars and ankle restraints were a little narrow for me).

4-new shows for the Showcase Theater and Stunt Arena.

5-Temple Of The Tiger show.

Honorable mentions:Fort Independence dive/dolphin shows;Glow In The Dark parade;park open until midnight during the summer;more cohesive themeing(ex:no superheroes on the boardwalk);replace all those lost trees(or as many as possible-it shocks me to see how much the park has lost in that area);Giant Teepee;and Viper(so people can experience that torture device in person).
