Well, since we've been told what we'll be getting in 2012 and since some of our members can't wait to start speculating about 2013, here it is, The 2013 Speculation Thread.

Now, the park has decided to go in a well-rounded direction for next year. With SkyScreamer(I'm counting it as a major flat that families can ride), the new bumber cars and scrambler, along with Flying Elephants returning, the park has started to make strides toward being a well rounded park. But the job is by no means done, or even remotely done. The park still lacks in a lot of departments, especially ride-wise and theming-wise. Hopefully the park builds off of this and adds more flats, shows, water rides, dark rides, etc. to the park in the coming years, because we truly have enough coasters at this point.

So the question is, what does 2013 have in store?

Alright, here is a great debate for us to consider:

- Will 2013's addition be like 2012, decent but not a large investment, saving the funds for a HUGE new attration(s) in 2014 for our 40th anniversery?

- Will 2013's addition be the long-awaited B&M Dive Machine, the long rumored Giga, or something else huge?

- Will we see the Old Country again in 2013?

- Will HH get anything?

- Will the Safari get anything?

- Will we get a Drop Tower?

- Will we finally know the fate of the old Simulator Building?

- Will the Batman Stunt Show make a return?

- Will Movietown transform into Gotham City?

- Will the old Edwards Air Force Base become DC Universe?

There is so much more but these are just the ones I could think of off the top of my head.

I could see a few more flat rides going up around the park, possibly a drop tower, and maybe 2013 will be the year the Old country finally opens back up. Also, what is to become of the old hanger for fly me to the moon?

The simulator building is the perfect spot for an interactive dark ride. That along with a drop tower would be good since it would be another family ride and another thrill ride that isn't a coaster. Another water ride would be good too. The rapids have a limited operating schedule (Memorial Day to Labor Day) and the Log Flume can't handle the demand for water rides. Even on slow days, it can easily get a 30+ minute line.

BAM! Yoshi you just read my mind.

EDIT: And referring to water rides, I personally would like to see a Mack SuperSplash added because it would give a shoot-the-chutes ride, up our coaster count, fill our water ride void, and add another family ride to the park.

I hope that we see another "War On Lines"!!! I hope to see a Shoot-The-Chutes where the 4D Building is, an Intamin Gyro Drop where Freefall once stood and/or an S&S Combo Drop in the center of the Big Tents, a classic Wave Swinger in The Old Country, a Musik Express in The Old Country, and a HUSS Giant Frisbee in the Tee-Pee's old spot.

I know I'm going out on a limb here... But I would really like to see both a GCI (with a fly through station!) between The Northern Star Arena and The Saw Mill Log Flume, called Jersey Devil! Not only that, but an Intamin LSM Launch using Batman & Robin: The Chiller's old station, called Mr. Freeze (in the near future!)

It's a long shot,but as far as water rides go, could we possibly see a Mack Splash battle around the old Chiller/MTWE area? Maybe tear down Chillers station if necesarry.

Welcome to the site ShoreNCoasters! As a word of advice, try not to double post. If you forgot something in your post, just hit the EDIT button in the bottom right hand corner and you can put it in. Anyways, you seem to know your stuff!

EDIT: I thought about that too, but with it being not so popular at SFGAm, i doubt it will happen. Ohh and by the way, welcome to the site VaCoasterfan!

Alright, 2013. What do I think?

New Coaster? Hopefully not...

Flat Ride Package with major flat anchoring? Sounds Great!

New Water Ride? Doubtful..

New Waterslide at HH Definite possibility!

I hope that in 2013, we see phase two in rounding out Great Adventure. I expect to see a Flat Ride package that will fill up more pads but not in Old Country, Save that for 2014 (40th anniversary) if we get a new Roller Coaster that occupies Batman and Robin: The Chiller's footprint and it gets included with that transformation, the anchoring flat probably a Drop Tower, I hope it's off the Front Side of Kingda Ka, but If it's not, I'd like to see a 250' Intamin Gyro Drop in Movie Town. Plus, I'd really like to see a new stunt show in the BSA and a Water Ski show in the GLBS.
