I skipped riding the coaster last year because I didn't want to wait 30 minutes for a clone of a ride I don't like that much.

Maybe another park in the chain will be getting the coaster next year. Michigan's Adventure or Valleyfair? I am going to be really disappointed if it ends up at Dorney.

I doubt Dorney Park would get Boomerang. They already have Stinger which is the Invertigo model added in 2012.

I saw it on twitter like 10 seconds after the news was broken. It's been rumored for years, finally their getting rid of it. I just hope it doesn't end up at Valleyfair, they really have so much potential.

Parks I've visited:

Six Flags Great Adventure, Dollywood, Knoebels, Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Universal Studios Orlando, Islands of Adventure, Six Flags America, Six Flags New England, Casino Pier, Funtown Pier (defunct), Steel Pier, Morey's Piers and Dorney Park.

I'm thinking Vallleyfair could end up getting a B&M, likely an inverted coaster. Michigan's Adventure could end up getting the Boomerang.

Yeah, last time Michigan's Adventure got something worth talking about was after Geuega Lake closed. Well its water park is now closed, sounds ligit.

I hope Knott's reopens their Sky Tower and it isn't part of their replacement plans.

SeaWorld's tower just reopened a few days ago after being closed for a few months. Was that related to the Sky Tower incident?

It reopened for a short time after that incident then went down again. From what I understand they needed a part that needed to be fabricated since the manufacturer is LONG out of business.
