I hope so....it has suffered enough abuse.
Dang it, I forgot to ask my parents if I could go on the carousel at MA.

Ah, well, next time! :D

I think that SFOT and SFGAm will be the only two SF parks that get a new roller coaster for 2014, and SFA will recieve Ragin Cajun from SFGAm. Any other thoughts or opinions on this?

I think that altogether, it's a good 2014 plan, but the Great Escape needs a new coaster, and it wouldn't hurt anything if StL got something.

StL might get "something" but it won't be a second coaster in a row.
SFOT just got the swings and SFFT got iRat, so I'd expect both of them to have an "off" year with maybe a new show or a new flat ride.
Still... SFOT has all that new area to play with, so who knows?

Up here, we have been told to mark our calendars for Aug 30th as the announcement date for Canada's Wonderland. Based on what I have heard from the conference call, we will be getting either a makeover for Splashworks, or a family ride.

I would expect this to be the date that all other Cedar Fair parks not named Kings Island will make their announcements as well. That will lead into the Labour Day weekend push for 2014 seasons passes.

And will SFStL get something good? Probably not. Hell, they'll probably give the Boss the RMC treatment and then move it to SFGAM just to spite them. Maybe put Ragin Cajun in its place if they're in a good mood. -Mike

Say what you will about SFSL, but it's a nice park for our town. As a local I'm thrilled it's in my backyard. I was there last night and the park was spotless and the ride ops were a lot of fun, engaging the guests and rolling the trains out in a timely manner. Spending the evening with one Boss ride followed by seven Eagle rides was superb.

For as much as corporate overlooks this park, management really does an excellent job.

Corporate did an audit of all the parks recently. Six Flags St. Louis had the highest scores. We are proud of that :D

So SFFT posts a pic of grass, most likely from on top of the cliffs surrounding the park, with the tagline: Extreme thrills coming in 2014.

Surely not another coaster right after Iron Rattler... but what else goes off a cliff? Maybe a Zipline?

We get the highest scores, and yet we get some of the worst treatment from corporate. Yeah that makes since.

In other news, at MA, it has been reported that land behind Grand Rapids and Thunderhawk is being cleared. This tells us one thing: It's probably not a slide.

Back to you, Bob. :lol:

Yeah, according to screamscape, a reader reports that some land is being cleared in that area. I hope it's something big!

I have just registered myself to be present next Friday morning at Canada's Wonderland for their announcement.

The rumour going around now is that there will be a advanced dark ride built into the mountain. There is a hole in the back side of the mountain now, and the GM tweeted that its a hint for next year.

How Exciting! I love Dark Rides! Do you have any rumor as to what the theme will be?
