2015 Anyone?

What's in planning, what's being built now, what's rumored.

I thought of that... but Skyline has said they'd announce the project on August first... and SF is doing all of their announcements on August 28th. Surely they wouldn't ruin the announcement of their own customer's project?

Today's tweet said that due to the wind, the balloon was "dropping and diving" quite a bit. Sounds like a coaster to me.

It's almost certainly the "Strike U Up" thing that Skyline just announced.

That means that it might not be a coaster. It looks, from all the pixellated stuff they've put up so far, that flat rides are their catalog this year.

It will be interesting seeing what it is. I only wish my closest park would get something good.

So SFFT is removing the car ride, the teacups (shaped like pool balls), and SFOT is removing the ACME Rocket (formerly SFAW Looping Starship).

Can I go ahead and predict it?

Dude I would totally get stoked about a Looping Starship. Bond and I love those rides.

Well, it's a really old hand-me-down from SFOT, so there's precedent for it.
