^Didn't they just update the interior of Chop Six as part of converting it?  If my memory is correct they aren't going to move it after one year.

 

harry2004, regardless of expense, also moves rides around in his plans like the park is a chess board.

Probably a new kids area, and I'll just be waiting for 2021..

Let me add to the rumor mill.  How about a renewed kiddie area and a major addition for 2020?  The rides towards the rear portion of Looney Tunes Seaport could easily be relocated to the Safari Kids area especially with the former Safari Tours site (see below).  That would free up a large plot of land as seen in yellow.  The yellow area represents already developed land that wouldn't require much leveling of trees (something about which Jackson is sensitive).

….I don't think it's a new kids area. It's something very big one.

Another possible spot for a new potential attraction for possibly next or a couple of years is the old Rolling thunder spot. The land is already cleared, so Jackson wouldn’t probably be as angry about cutting down only a few trees. Even though their has been no markings for next year here it is still a very valuable piece of land that the park could utilize.

Would there be room to the left of Joker for a somewhat compact coaster? Or is that area better suited for a flat ride?

I doubt anything will be built to the left of the Joker on the former site of the grandstands. It would only obstruct the view of the lake and that is an asset to the park.

This definitely is a big plot of land that could very well utilize a new large coaster.

If that’s the case and I hope it is, then Gadv is doing an amazing job at revitalizing once “dead” areas of the park. Not only that, the right side of the park has been getting a lot of love lately and it’s good to see a balance of E-Ticket attractions on both sides of the park.

 

The question is what addiction would complement that area of the park nicely. The obvious answer is a kids area but based on the surveys, I’m excited to see what 2020 brings.

Another Idea would be to scatter the Kids Areas again (Safari Kids-mins air safari, Elephants, train) to Golden Kingdom (preferably Ka extended queue/viewing area), Barnstormer, Heart's Away, Air Safari (and some new rides) over by Cyborg and Justice League (DC Super Friends). Scrap Jumping Joey and Deep Sea Diver (one of DC Super Friends is a kiddie drop tower) and send Road Runner and Taz Twister to National Park (Boomtown) and add a Lake Front Entrance.

Jolly Roger replaces Elephants, Seaport Eats could become a Chop Six (but since they just redid Panda Express, this would be further down the line). Not sure if an East Coast Racers could fit between Skull Mountain and the rapids (w/o removing the rapids, but this is probably on the table), add a Zamerpla Disk'O (Pandamonium, Safari Tours spot-roughly), Adventure's Seaport becomes Screampunk District.

 

I know there's a haunt over there, but there is space by Zumanjaro for one (use the thinner, right path, for entrance, and have it dump onto El Toro's exit).

 

I also feel Six Flags would not mess with the themes of Ka and El Toro, being their stand out attractions. Even though you can easily plop West Coast Racers there, I don't there is an aesthetically pleasing way for it to work unless they built new buildings on the path from Golden Kingdom to Plaza (and the Golden Kingdom Shops too) as part of a boardwalk expansion.

 

Even though Jackson is a little touchy when it comes to trees, and since a lot of parks are removing their water rides, they could be persuaded once soil tests prove their ideas.

Unless they rework the enterance way to congo rapids, then i like to see the rapids mainentrance pool move to the middle of the rapids ride and give it a penguin retheme and add a harley quinn ride in the current mainentrance pool space, and maybe a better joker (or superman) ride next to nitro lift hill in that empty plot of land that would make a walkway that corrects with Adventure seaport and Movietown with part of Adventure seaport and all of Movietown and Old Country becomes dc universe, dc superfriends could be in part of the picnic area behind cyborg means moving the outside picnic area to where maple pavilion tent is and demolished the picnic area restrooms for a wide walkway for the picnic area

^That guy said there was a teaser by Six Flags saying "tall, steel and fast" for Great Adventure's 2020 addition. Where did he see that? I didn't hear about that.

I would bet on a new kid's area for sure. With new kid themed parks opening in the near future (Nick Universe at the Meadowlands and Legoland) a new kid's area would help with maintaining/increasing attendance of families with younger kids.

 

As far as a coaster goes I think a LSM multi-launched coaster will be next (East Coast Racers?). With the solar arrays there is plenty of power available.

 

Additionally, I would keep an eye on what improvements Cedar Fair has for Dorney Park. It's been a while since Dorney got something significant (Hydra) and they are also well within the radius of the new parks.

John Winkler said that at ACE's (American Coaster Enthusiasts) Riding Of The Bull last September and that statement could refer to almost anything.

I think this actually a very interesting concept! To add on more, I did the approximate math for the measurements of specific rides, just to see how much they could fit into the old safari tours land (using the rides from Looney Tunes Seaport include Road Runner Railway and three other flat rides) & they actually fit in pretty well! (all of the numbers in the photo are in feet)

You think the next coaster will be a relocated ride?  No one builds multi-launch coasters with LIMs anymore.  LSMs are used on modern multi-launch coasters.

Sorry, a slight mistake.  It wasn’t me who wrote that post.

I can see medium-sized RMC Raptor (customized) to build on that yellow spot.

I thought there was an actual conversation going on there for a quick minute.
