The one thing I don't like about Star Flyers are their seating capacity holding only 24 passengers per cycle (12, 2 passenger seats) as opposed to Windseeker that holds 64 (32, 2 passenger seats.) Considering that it'll be popular and factoring in the load and unload times (which always seem to be slow on flats), the lines might be horrible for this thing.

Of course after I wrote that I remembered this: http://ridesdb.com/d...hp?ride_id=3496, a traveling Star Flyer with two rings of seats. SF would have to get this type or Windseeker because the stock 12 seat version probably won't cut it.

Well I guess we can assume that the flats will be new since they're saying Fantasy Forest is getting improved, not Old Country.

Maybe Old Country will be annexed as part of Fantasy Forest.

...and this once again proves that when the park raises prices on parking, Jackson gets a decent cut.
Obviously, anything that is planned for next year would have had to be presented to the Planning Board by now.
Everything is hush hush which could either be a good thing or a bad thing.

I still think you guys will be surprised, maybe disappointed, but surprised I think.

If Fantasy Forest becomes DC Universe or anything even close, someone's head has to roll. However, I have a good bit of positive thoughts about this:
-This might mean the return of the Flying Wave or at least replacement with a similar ride. I guess it isn't too crazy to say the Starflyer might go there.
-The Old Country could very well be added to Fantasy Forest
-The whole "pirate" area of the forest might get some love.
-There are a lot of old footprints where new rides can be added.
-This clue implies theming. Never a bad thing, unless superheroes involved.
-Maybe a water ride in the old Chiller area?

Again, this is some wishful thinking, but I certainly do love the idea of major improvement to the area, so long as that improvement doesn't mean DC Forest or something of the sort.

^ Aren't all the pirate rides part of Lakefront?

Maybe Music Express and Bumper Cars will be moved to open area in the Fantasy Forest.

It's official, we are getting a Skyscreamer, Hurricane Harbor is adding a Bonzai Pipeline looping water slide
http://www.latimes.c...38.photogallery

Go to page 4 and 7

Edit - LA Times took down the page so the link will not work now, too late though since it was up for long enough for everything to be leaked.

I hate g-forces in enclosed waterslides (I get claustrophobic) but I'll have to check out that slide. Nice to see Hurricane Harbor getting some love. And the Skyscreamer...yay! :jumping0032: :jumping0001:

Yeah some enclosed waterslides can really be forceful compared to open slides.

I bet SF isn't happy the LA Times leaked all this information early either.

That explains why the link says "Page Not Found"....Oh well, rappers and R&B artists get their albums leaked a week or so in advance (minus Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne) and they brush it off.

Anyway, how can we put in a Skyscreamer in Fantasy Forest? Where? There's the Skyride and a ton of trees in the area. I don't want to be "Mr Enviromental" but we shouldn't cut any or many trees. The trees make the area feel cooler, visually and physically in the weather because of the shade.

As for the slides, cool. Tornado was our newest slide and we could always use a new slide. No problems, I feel, about that.

Maybe where Chaos, Evolution or the Flying Wave was? Evolution's spot looks close to the Skyway though but I guess it would be ok if Evolution was there.

Wasn't Evolution in Old Country? If so, is Old Country going to open up as an extension of Fantasy Forest? Of course, everyone loves that idea, but that spot would actually be good. Gathering the chances Musik Express and the bumper cars are operational, they could put the Skyscreamer right smack dab in the middle, and make a queue randomly, blocking off the Movie Town entrance. Or they could put in Evolution's spot, which would be more visible there from the parking lot, and use the bumper cars (if unable to operate, which most likely will be the case) as the queue. It would lead right to it, give people shade and shelter (and protection if someone decides to lose their lunch on the ride, if you know what I mean), and theming could come into play much easily.

Good thinking. :thumbsup:
