No, Evolution was in the Fantasy Forest right near the Dream Street Skyway station

Oh, I was thinking Pendulum. I was close.

Yet, that means we would have remove or move Fantasy Fling once again. Plus it has to move over towards the open space near Granny's Kitchen Chicken whatever it's called, which would probably close that gap for people to walk through (maybe).

The Skyscreamer should go there on the Evolution spot. Thank goodness. That's a nice addition but any chance of it being a lonely addition is out since they've decided to put the looping slides at HH to help the place catch up. Wildwater Kingdom and SFNE had really been in the waterpark battles. This helps.

Sky Screamer, I'm okay with this! I'll say it goes into Evolution's old spot, that's a pretty big area and while close to the cable cars, I don't think it's too close. I'm glad they're getting a flat though, very glad.

If it's that close to the Skyway I think the swings would clear the lowering cables of the Skyway by the time the swings get to a speed where they could really spread out.

This LA times article didnt release too much to us weve been saying skyscreamer for some time the big question is height and if its short of 300' imo its a bust for us. Evolutions spot is the most likely location and I do not see a DC universe section for us next year. The water slide sounds like a great addition but I still refuse to go until additional free tubes are added back I cant have a good time at a water park if I have to lug around and guard a rented tube...no no no thank you!

GREAT ADVENTURE: Skyscreamer! PLUS an expansion to the park's family ride collection, including new bumper cars, a music themed scrambler and a new kids ride named flying elephants.

"These are all part of a newly expanded area to complement the park's already stellar offering of extreme coasters"

EDIT: looking at the LA Times(skip to page 7), we're also getting a Bonzai Pipeline looping waterslide :jumping0032:

Maybe something else will occupy old country in 2013? We can wait to talk about that.. Anyways, The only new information we got from this is that we are getting a scrambler instead of Musik Express, which I am pretty happy about, and that our StarFLyer is now cliche-ly named Sky Screamer.


EDIT: This just in from a press release by Jackson Township, "Theme park guests will have more to scream about with the introduction of SkyScreamer. The newest sensation in tower rides, SkyScreamer will take swing rides to the next level and join the park's already breathtaking lineup of thrills as it whisks guests up, up and away high over the park, feet dangling and hair blowing. Towering 15 stories above the ground, SkyScreamer will reside next to the classic Big Wheel. Thirty-two guests will board the ride and sit two across in open-air swings as they climb to the top of the SkyScreamer tower while spinning round and round. At full swing, guests will soar in a 98-ft. circle at speeds of 40 mph high above the park below."

Oh and Just to make things better, SFFT's Sky Screamer is 200' tall.
