well I heard that GADV will indeed add a Bonzai Pipeline in 2012..I get all of my info from Screamscape.com..i don't know if you guys think that Screamscape stuff is totally accurate but I get my stuff from there. We have a tornado slide..don't you think we could use like a mat racer,bowl slide,freefall slide with the floor dropping-like Wet N' Wild in Orlando,nice water coaster like the Wildebeest at Holiday World or the Black Anaconda at Noah's Ark in Wisconsin Dells? Anyone have any ideas for GADV hurrican harbor future attractions?
I think they are adding drop boxes to the straight down slide that we have (I don't know the name). But a water coaster and a mat racer, has got to be next on the list. Those are essentials to a water park!!!

I still have never been to our Hurricane Harbor just because I'd rather go to Raging Waters in Wildwood. Less people and the slides are just as fun. If Six Flags adds more fun slides to HH, I'll no doubt start going there, and might even upgrade to a 3-park Season Pass.

Basically all Im saying is I dont need new slides to bring me back just bring back my free tubes. I mean you cant even just relax like your supposed to on the lazy river cause people are heckling you everytime you get to an entrance!

I have also seen pictures of the lazy river where because there are so few free tubes, you are allowed to just walk through the river without a tube. That's not a great way to relax if you have to worry about people walking all over the place.
Edit - I just read that Flashpass will be added to more SF water parks in 2012. That even makes me really want to avoid HH even more. I don't have much of a problem with Flashpass but the way it was used at White Water was very unfair. With a certain 3 slide tower for example, 1 slide was for Flashpass only meaning you couldn't use that slide unless you had Flashpass and those that had Flashpass couldn't use it in the other 2 slides. If I have to pay extra just to be able to use certain slides, that is not happening.

I really wished we were getting a mat racer this season, that would have really helped spread out the crowd a bit more, but I'm just happy to see the park getting some attention.
However, I still think that Hurricane Harbor could and should be moved within the theme park, there is more than enough room for it and they can enclose Discovery Bay and build the long rumored hotel on the rest of the land.

If they enclosed Discovery Bay which sounds like a good idea, I guess they'd have to get rid of the maximum height limit or else no one with kids over age 8 or 9 would stay there since they wouldn't be able to access it or at least allow anyone over 54" on the larger blue and green slides that aren't really kiddie slides.

Now, how exactly would you "move" the water park?
It's not that far fetched actually. It would take an investment of around 5-7 million dollars to move it, but it can (and probably should) be done. We own all of the slides and equipment so most of the cost would come just from building new pools and laying new pipe, as well as a new lazy river and wave pool like Yoshi said. I don't think it will ever happen but it would really increase its attendance and balance out the theme park with a whole bunch of water attractions that it is lacking.

I also really don't see a reason to move them. HH is already a really nice waterpark and has some nice theme elements, which I have a feeling many wouldn't make the journey over.
