    Project 2021 (?): Volcano Replacement

    I'm with the crowd that thinks this would be a good fit for the park, especially if it was well themed and/or mostly blocked the FOF building similar to how Volcano did. However, I just hope the final design has a bit more height (and length) to it. This thing is short. For reference...

    Project 2021 (?): Volcano Replacement

    Glad they realized KD needs a roller coaster (or two) to replace Volcano and not Safari Village's own Coconut Shores.

    I305 Retheme

    We are finishing up the 10th season with the Intimidator 305 theme and it does make you wonder how long that contract will stay signed. I love the nostalgia of this and think "Galaxi" would be a great re-theme option for the entire area, especially when/if Anaconda gets replaced.

    Project 2020: Coconut Shores

    It appears the site is forming.

    Project 2021 (?): Volcano Replacement

    If so, that's a big disappointment for the park in 2021.

    News Project 2020: Orion

    The overall height is 287’ with a 300’ drop because they are constructing it into the terrain.

    Project 2020: Coconut Shores

    ^ I understand that, but I don't think a lot of people who have heard this announcement do. I believe many are thinking they are replacing Splash House with Lighthouse Landing and just transforming the existing 30,000 sf Big Wave Bay into Sand Dune Lagoon by changing the wave settings to mild 1...

    Project 2020: Coconut Shores

    Just to give an idea of what 3,000 sf would be (if correct) compared to the existing Big Wave Bay wave pool:

    Project 2020: Coconut Shores

    OK, now I'm confused and concerned. When I saw the concept art for Sand Dune Lagoon I thought it looked quite small compared to Big Wave Bay, but didn't think anything of it because cartoon concept art like that is never to scale. Then I just read the Sand Dune Lagoon description again: New...

    Project 2020: Coconut Shores

    This addition will bring some life to that back corner of the water park again, which hasn't seen anything new since 2007's Zoom Flume. I would have liked to see a mat racer included though either nearby Coconut Shores or up front where Tornado once was. Even the 4 lane model like Worlds of Fun...

    Big Waves Cause Big Problems in Soak City

    Canada's Wonderland is the most recent Cedar Fair park to have announced their 2020 additions: Mountain Bay Cliffs in SplashWorks and Beagle Brigade Airfield in Planet Snoopy. Coming in 2020 Mountain Bay Cliffs is unique. I wonder if Cedar Fair would ever put something like this in a US park?

    Thursday appears to be the day when season passes are going on sale chain-wide. However, we now have confirmation that both Kings Island and Dorney Park will be announcing their 2020 additions on Thursday.

    Big Waves Cause Big Problems in Soak City

    Looking a bit closer at what CGA is getting (South Bay Shores) and the Tide Pool seems as if it could replace a wavepool while keeping the same structure: Tide Pool A new family lagoon with eight kid-sized water slides that line the perimeter of a zero-depth-entry pool will give children their...

    Big Waves Cause Big Problems in Soak City

    California's Great America announced South Bay Shores today (https://www.cagreatamerica.com/explore/south-bay-shores), which means KD's announcement could come at any point now. This CGA announcement goes with Cedar Fair's recent trend of giving water parks their own regional identity: 1...

    Big Waves Cause Big Problems in Soak City

    I believe a mat racer (finally) or water coaster would be best for Soak City. Although the water park needs attention with Tornado and Big Wave Bay gone, I would like to see a flat ride (could be a fairly inexpensive one) on the dry side of the park announced with the Soak City expansion. There...

    Still Beautiful After All These Years

    BGW is top 5 for sure, but I agree with Dollywood and Silver Dollar City. Epcot and Animal Kingdom would be my other two before BGW.

    The Grand Carnivale Debuting June 2019

    Seems like a good opportunity to use some of these props/costumes for a Mardi Gras themed Haunt maze or scare zone in the coming years.
