What do you want Santa to bring your home park?

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

What do you want Santa to bring your home park?

Merry Christmas everyone!

What would you like Jolly Old St. Nick to drop off at your home park when he laps the globe on Christmas Eve?

I'm not sure if he has enough room in his sack for what Six Flags St. Louis needs. Pavement, paint (especially for the carousel if it's still there), a bevy of flat rides and maybe a good coaster. I know he can't get that all done but maybe he could arrange for a wreck that would take out all the aging Boomerang track and parts that are headed north. That would be a great Christmas present. ;-)

So what else should Santa bring to he parks by you?

Have Fun

I wish for Santa to bring to Canada's Wonderland:

A kick-ass dark ride like Kurse Of DarKastle.

A giant indoor seating area that is air conditioned, so one can eat their food out of the sun, or just go in to sit down.

A giant Ferris Wheel.

A meteorite just big enough to wipe out Flight Deck and Time Warp.

A nice custom B&M invert to fill in the resulting crater.

SANTA! I know him! I know him!

I want him to bring:
A Chance Unicoaster like Brainsurge at MOA, and a suspended roller coaster like Soak'd but where you can drop water. This would be a nice touch to Adventure Bay.

With Hersheypark pulling their Super Soaker coaster I'm not sure if there are any of those Setpoint rides left. Heck is Setpoint even in business anymore? It's a shame though as they looked like a whole lot of fun.

Have Fun

WHAT?!?! No... why are they taking it out? It looked like a fun ride. If only S&S would make something like that...

Higher operational efficiency on rides (while at the same time letting people choose where to sit on coasters)! You know, how roller coasters were intended to be operated.

Naw... there I go dreaming again :)
