Nah Old Country isn't big enough. It would cut into the employee back area.

Where could they put it though? Most of the area in MovieTown is filled or there are backstage areas/maintenance shops behind it

^Yeah. Maintenance/employee back areas are behind Movietown. In reality, there is really no room left beyond Movietown and if we were to get a coaster with the length of Superman: Escape from Krypton, several rides would have to be replaced. :sign0186:

I'm just saying though, something needs to be put over there because they don't have much and they need to even out both sides of the park.

I've always envisioned a nice drop tower right in the stunt theater themed to Riddler, utilizing the area where the bleachers were for a shaded/well-themed queue

^Yeah it doesn't have to be BIG. A drop tower or an intense coaster that covers the empty Movietown/ Old Country area.

Is the area between the The Showcase Theater and the water tower available land to have attractions?

We're getting off-topic, but let me say this. Gadv will never be a complete park without a drop tower. Its a staple, and along with theming, I believe its the biggest gap in the park right now. No matter which direction they go with it, whether its Intamin, S&S, Moser, etc., its going to be the best addition to the park since Toro and PDC. They can add all the best family flats, theming, major flats and coasters they want, but until they add a drop tower, being ranked with CP is not going to happen.

Now on topic. With the sighting of surveyors out on the log flume peninsula and the rumors of this hyper-fast steel coaster, could this be #14? It would make sense. They could have the station in the old TotT compound(because it already has great theming), have it hop over the shops, go through where BBNP is/was, around the log flume peninsula and Bizarro, curve around toro, go through RT's infield and end up back in the GK. THEN, you can move all of the ride from BBNP to LTSP/SK, do some rethemes and BAM, you can advertise to 2 audiences, thrill seekers, and parents with young children. if the Launcher is anything like Cheetah Hunt, you could also market it to families as a "gap" between family rides and thrill rides.

EDIT: 1500

Off topic: congrats on the 1500 posts! :)

Yeah, I'm either hoping for this long Hyper coaster or a drop tower for next year! I've seen these choices as the big two choices for next year. Look out Great Adventure, we're getting something good!
