Thanks for posting that.

Cedar Fair took over the former Paramount Park chain in July of 2006. I don't remember when the 2nd water park expansion was announced for the 2007 season [Tidal Wave Bay (2nd wave pool) | Zoom Flume | Tornado]. I believe it was in late September or early October of 2006. With Cedar Fair taking over mid-season, I think it took longer for them to finalize the next year's attractions.

Was Dominator the attraction for 2008? I don't remember when that was announced in 2007. Also, what year was Americana and El Dorado put in?

Bold = major rides/attractions - The park has a habit of adding a new major ride every other year. I think this is the only "major" year the park hasn't added anything significant. I expect some interesting developments come 2015 and the second year of the 40th.

I would say that the Planet Snoopy revamp was major considering that it cost $9 million.

I'm totally betting that we're following Carowinds & that we'll see a coaster in 2016. I'm also thinking that the whole "Soak City" logo thing was just a slip up (those slides are done by Cedar Fair corporate, so they could have just been using it from another park.) I'm sure that we'll just see one a new slide tower like the rest of the parks have, maybe a new kids waterpark area (that's been rumored for a while.)

Has anyone snatched up those 40th anniversary pins? Where's the best place in the park to get them. I'll probably be going there in October, so we'll pick them up then.

Yes, horror, fright, gore! We need more EVIL!

The trading pins... I have them all in 1 of 40 collectors set.

I suggest Sunshine Souvenirs (front of the park) to purchase these. Someone in there usually has one of the two pins that can be exclusively traded for. It's usually the singing mushroom pin. The Rebel Yell backwards pin is difficult to find (I went and searched for 3 others who weren't able to visit the park and it took me a good 4 hours over 2 days to find 3 of them). Anyways, keep a look out and ask an executive if you need help finding them. They may know others and most of the time are willing to call around to help you out.

If I had to pick any attraction for the second year of the 40th celebration would definitely be to bring back the skyride over the grove

FYI . . . I did see 2 or 3 Haunt trading pins in the front gate gift shop next to Starbucks.
