At first I thought this looked weird, but then it ends up looking fun and maybe doesn't quite get you super soaked? Not a fan of water logged street clothes, but maybe this isn't that.
Not to mention I don't think there's a water coaster in the Mid-Atlantic ever since Hershey scrapped Roller Soaker (and even that was a roller coaster with water, and not the same as the water coaster that is a true roller coaster with splash sections, and not a waterslide that goes uphill)Well I mean prior to volcano one of the rides was a flume ride… so a water coaster honestly feels like it would work pretty well. Wouldn’t be too hard to get a decent theme. Would add a new water ride and coaster in one addition.
I think you can honor the legacy of Volcano without having to do a 1 off coaster model.Yeah, I don't think they're too concerned with the legacy of Volcano as much as they are with adding something fun and reliable that fits into Jungle Xpedition
aight that would be pretty damn coolI think you can honor the legacy of Volcano without having to do a 1 off coaster model.
I think whatever new ride you pick to put in there you can do a story line of going into the temple of the fire god who angers when they learn that the incoming explorers are the same that lead to the destruction of their child, the volcano of Doswell VA. The ride is the fire god in the temple exacting their revenge on the explorers who lead to the destruction of their child.
I'm not super great at crafting stories in ride, but the opening up of the ride could be the god trying to be reasonable yet exacting revenge, someone disturbs a sacred idol of the power of the fire god that can destroy the world, and the post launch part is the god doing everything they can to take back the idol of fire, which ends (in the splashdown) of the extinguishing of the fire.
I think if that was the case, all of the good will they've built up by focusing on guest experience and dining will go out the window and Cedar Fair will be as reviled as Dan Snyder.The ongoing rumor is Tumbili is a filler ride to holdover guests until the old Volcano plot sees a big coaster. It geographically replaced Crypt. But what if…Tumbili is the Volcano replacement as a coaster while the geographical Volcano replacement is a flat ride package or some other non-coaster experience I wouldn’t be against that, but I shudder to think what the other fans would say.
The water coaster idea is very interesting and would be a great fit considering there’s only two Mack water coasters in North America (Seaworld’s JTA rides).
I almost fear we will end up with a Copperhead Strike like clone where the launch is jumble rather than moonshine themed.I have to agree with @SLC Headache on the flat ride expansion. They would have to knock the theming out of the park to make up for Volcano. A highly themed coaster makes the most sense. I would imagine most everybody thinks a coaster of sorts to replace volcano is one of the only things to replace it.
Fear? I would have 0 qualms with a Mack launch going in in Volcanos spot. I would prefer it to be larger scale than Copperhead and definitely not a clone but that is definitely not a ride model I fear about going in anywhere at KD. I love Copperhead.I almost fear we will end up with a Copperhead Strike like clone where the launch is jumble rather than moonshine themed.
Interesting. I found CHS kinda boring and forceless and it crawled it’s way through on my ride.Fear? I would have 0 qualms with a Mack launch going in in Volcanos spot.
