I'm prepared to be disappointed when it's new larger splash house.
I was thinking the same thing. Splash house is WAY past due for an overhaul/replacement. I thought when Soak City got a refurb 5-6 years ago, something would have been done then. I think a medium-large Rain-Forest play area would be a good replacement. Not Sure the park would splurge for an extra-large Giant Rain-Forest water structure given the work going on at Big Wave Bay.Splash House is in pretty bad shape - visibly outdated, lots of broken parts and effects, and too small to handle the crowds it gets. I honestly wouldn’t be shocked.
Remember that whatever Project 2020 is, it’s replacing a family attraction with a huge capacity. It seems logical that Big Wave’s replacement would serve a similar role.
I believe someone on another site posted back in late July that Dorney was getting something new for their waterpark. It was brought up in a township meeting where Dorney is located.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.
Is there actually an announcement on 8/15 at KD or have they just not said anything yet? I remember for Delirium they just tweeted a picture of a sunrise with "2016" the day before or something.
I don't think this attraction would pass the liability test in the states. Given the potential heights from the water and the Darwin statistics that someone will land in the water in a way that would cause injury, I would be surprised if we got one in the USA. Plus, you will have to be able to swim given the pool depth. It would have to be around 10 ft deep for safety reasons.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?
