    Ways to Make SFA More Competitive

    Shame that asshole in the yellow shirt blocked the shot for most of the video.

    Project 2020: Coconut Shores

    Yeah, I do wonder if these will be actual, drivable trucks or just permanent food stands disguised as trucks.

    Existing Flat Ride Der Wirbelwind

    I’d say it’s not really the same as BGWFans since BGWFans provides either leaked info or critiques of the park to a large audience, whereas this is just a few misinformed people on Facebook commenting on an easily-debunked problem.

    Existing Flat Ride Der Wirbelwind

    I don’t think they “need” to do anything in this case. It’s some random post in a private group where a few people are confused. Those people will figure it out when they visit BGW and Wirbelwind is still there. Of course, a post explaining the maintenance that goes into Der Wirbelwind would be...

    How To Define a “Drop”

    I think they’re different. For example, I’d argue coasters like Avalanche don’t have any drops, despite having a constant decline. Another example: the switchback portion of most Wild Mice(???) declines slightly, but I wouldn’t call that a drop.

    How To Define a “Drop”

    That was my initial thought too, but would a .1 degree decline really be considered a drop? Break runs probably have an even steeper grade. The answer to this question is probably just 180 minus the minimum angle that one would consider to be a normal drop. So if we say the minimum angle of a...

    Existing Roller Coaster Flight of Fear

    I totally wouldn’t put it past KD to have their sole archive for FOF’s themed spiel on a single (now broken) CD. Maybe KI has a copy? :P

    Defunct Flat Ride The Crypt

    Not until weeks after the park opened. In fact, today is the first time KD has ever officially mentioned anything new coming to Safari Village online.

    Existing Roller Coaster Flight of Fear

    What’s sad is these effects could easily be restored with a single speaker and an MP3 player. I assume they’ve just been forgotten :(

    Project 2020 (MMXX): Pantheon

    I guess you could say... Zachary’s tour reached new heights! But seriously, this might be hardest I’ve ever seen a theme park fan site go on its reporting. Bravo.

    Existing Roller Coaster Flight of Fear

    Are you talking about the radio broadcast sort of thing that played from the radio tower outside the entrance? I swear I haven’t heard that in years, but maybe I’ve just gone on bad days. Have you heard it recently?

    In-Park Music

    So I didn't have as many of the 2017-era International Street songs written down as I thought, but here are some of the songs I remember. These played from early 2017 through July 2019 before being replaced with the current "international" soundtrack. He's a Pirate - Hans Zimmer Imagine the...

    Defunct Flat Ride The Crypt

    As a farewell to the ride, here’s a promo video from when it opened as Tomb Raider: Firefall in 2005, featuring then- GM of KD and current CEO of Cedar Fair, Richard Zimmerman.

    In-Park Music

    The Planet Snoopy soundtrack is different from some of the other park areas because there are literally several thousand songs on the playlist, so I don’t have any from that area unfortunately. I actually do have some of the current Safari Village and early-2019 International Street songs...

    Defunct Flat Ride The Crypt

    To be fair, talks of removing Crypt have been around for years. I remember Gary Chadwick implying its imminent removal back when he was GM. If it weren’t for Volcano being removed just across the path, this probably wouldn’t have been as tough of a blow.

    Will it feature a spike?

    Defunct Flat Ride The Crypt

    This is a little exaggerated IMO. There’s no reason to believe Volcano and Crypt won’t be replaced, and supposedly Anaconda and Avalanche both have steady ridership numbers. Plus, Tony Johnson said at the ACE Q&A this fall that there are no plans to remove Anaconda.
