RMC 2016 & 2017 Plans

Post by GruffySquirrel64 » Mon Nov 24, 2014 7:17 pm

So Alan Schilke, a famous designer who works with RMC, announced a couple days back that they are booked with coasters through 2017.

2016 - 3 RMC Coasters are being manufactured

2017 - 4 RMC Coasters are being manufactured

Which parks do you think will be getting their coasters treated to some RMC goodness? (I think the Boss is most likely to be transformed into a RMC hybrid in 2016)

There is that one in Europe for 2016. I will throw Mean Streak somewhere in there as it needs it.
Life is short....have fun!

Mean Streak was actually quite fun when Chelle and I rode it last summer. I don't see how they could add inversions to that since 95% of that ride is inside itself, but adding some stuff on the drop or adding to the back would be quite fun.

I will go out on a limb and say American Eagle will get the treatment at Great America. I can only hope they keep the dueling portion and just make it faster and better but dueling.

They didn't seem too interested in that for Colossus though...

Well, it looks like there is now a bit more possibility for Timber Wolf at WOF too. Screanscape reported that CF is in talks with both RMC and GCI to do something about Timber Wolf. I love GCI but I feel that this is a job for RMC.

Just remove the helix and that ride would improve 100000%.

Screw that! Without "Intense ride jostling" Timberwolf would loose something!

If they do RMC it, I would hope I could buy that sign. I'll put that in my house

LOL yeah that is a hilarious sign and you'd have to fight me for it. Sadly as you are a black belt and it has been 14 years since I got my third brown belt chances are you'd get the sign. :-(

Nah, we wouldn't have to fight for it. I'd just be nice. Plus I'd mount it over my and chelle's bed. Just that picture alone would be worth it. If Brandon was still there we'd probably be able to get it... ;)

According to a quote from IAAPA RMC said they have no projects opening in 2017, BUT I think that is just to throw people off because I think RMC Mean Streak will be opening in 2017.
