A new wooden coaster is something the park could really use, and making it not too big so it's a good family ride would be a great idea.

A kid or mild family wooden to be built as part of a DC Kids Land would be cool.

Make it a clone (or similar) to InvadR at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. I would be fine with this.

The picture I chose is from Fun Spot Orlando and it's a great size and scale for the whole family. Rolling Thunder left a big gap in the coaster lineup.

100% on board with this idea. Family woodies can pack quite a punch. Wooden Warrior at Quassy proves that.

A coaster similar to White Lightning would be a nice addition. I thought the coaster was a lot of fun and just thrilling enough for everyone to like. With so many wooden coasters changing because of RMC, it would also be nice to see a new traditional wooden coaster built in the chain.

Agree! One the size of White Lighting would be a great addition to the park. Its just fast enough and has some great air time.

If it did go with a DC Superfriends theme, it go other the lake [35ft lift with drop over lake and bunny hop back] and RRR would be relocated to BBNP, probably (so they have 3 kiddie coasters). I'd more likely call that Poison Ivy than a Zamperla Discovery.

I would like to see a wooden coaster with lights on the track like they have at Hershey.

I would think the park would need a longer train than White Lightning's to handle GADV size crowds.

Safest bet in the world: that a geek snob will find something wrong with something big in the subject of his/her (mostly his) fixation and grouse about it for the rest of his/her life.

Absolutely a longer train, but it's the scale of the coaster that is what I'd like to see.

How about a KD Scooby-Doo style woodie but themed after Road Runner or the Tasmanian Devil?

The Scooby Doo coasters are cute, but the trains are smaller than regular trains. It makes it hard for adults to ride with their kids.

I think a mild RMC or GCI like American Thunder at St Louis would be perfect, even though it's considered a thrill ride, I find it to be on the same level as Rolling Thunder nothing crazy but yet still fun.  Plus a twister layout would be a nice balance to our Out and Back and amaazing El Toro. One would fit great behind Looney Tunes Seaport and a retheme won't hurt.   

Also, as far as family cousters go I also would love to see a spinning coaster and Pony Express or moto coaster. The one at Knotts Berry Farm was a blast and as a thrill ride lover I enjoyed it because it's unique and fun and Families Love it,

However, Wooden coaster definately.

This is so true! I have to sit sideways in the seat for my legs to fit. Forget about trying to fit a kid with me if I had one!

 

I just rode Legoland's Coastersaurus last week. It was quite enjoyable for a family wooden coaster. My legs fit snuggly, but it was much better than many of the other kiddie/family coaster restraints.

After hearing how great Mystic Timbers is and some people claiming it is the best coaster at Kings Island, I'm hoping Great Adventure eventually gets a similar type coaster.

The whole shed thing is a little odd.

With the new rmc opening at KD in 2018 and invadr this year in 2018-2019 is the most probable time slot we would see an rmc-gci and come to think of it were the only major six flags park without an rmc or gci so with that in mind we will most likely see an rmc or gci, personally I would like to see a wood coaster that isint eltoro and see a stick to the terrain type of coaster come to the park
