I would love for the park to put an enterprise back into commission. I was devastated (literally) in 2007 when I found out that it was removed. I know it would be a stretch, but a Chance-Morgan Uni-Coaster could fill the void of a 4D roller coaster for the time being.

While farting around on Twitter, I found this tweet from NewsPlusNotes (@NewsPlusNotes)

@SFGrAdventure 's 2013 news includes "dramatic transformation for its theme, safari and water park properties." I'm excited! Big news!


THURSDAY. GET HERE. NOW.

Well, we already know of the safari's, and rumors of the show package, flat ride package, and kraken racer have been floating around. Hopefully when they say "dramatic transformation", we get some new theming, because that's one of the park's biggest problems. But everything is pointing to a great year. :D

I would also like to see a new Eneterprise ride back in the park along with a restored Old Country with some new flats.

I really want to turn Movie Town into Gotham City. That's up at the top of my list.

My Guesses:

Piece 1: Safari Revamp

Piece 2: New entertainment (shows)

Piece 3: Proslide 6-8 Lane Kraken Racer

To be honest, I don't see the park adding flat rides in 2013. It seems like we are getting quite enough already. I mean, Over Texas and Over Georgia got shows as their entire new "attraction" for 2012. I would be pleasantly surprised if we were to get flats, but I wouldn't count on it.

The only thing I've seen suggesting we are getting flats is a post on GAhistory other than that I've heard nothing about it and will be pleasantly surprised if its true but I just think it would be A LOT for one year so I hope no one here is expecting it.

I'm keeping my mind set the Safari announcement is BIG enough and it could only get smaller from there: entertainment updates, a water slide. I'm not expecting the freefall I don't want to be announced. I think it'll be another year for the gyro drop I want. A few flat rides would be a nice mild surprise.

I will say this, if, which looks like it may happen, we get an entertainment package, it looks like the shows could be located at Batman Stunt Arena and/or Showcase Theater. If that's the case, that back area could be in use, excluding Old Country Grove and Hypnosteria/Asylum/Zambora during Fright Fest. It could see at least a small flat, maybe Batman related to form Movietown into Gotham City. Then reopen the snack stand across from Chiller's old Top Hat and Cobra Roll and the area could be brought back to life (at least put the area on life support). This could then lead to reopening Old Country and opening the gap where those Cabanas use to be last year.


On the other note, we will find out about the Fright Fest details on September 8th.

To be fair, Deja Vu hasn't been replaced yet, nor was Iron Wolf. I've heard the rumor from several people who's word I trust. However, with that said, I am still skeptical myself. If Bizarro doesn't leave by the end of the 2012 season, I will eat something gross, film it, and post it in the Never Ending Pointless Thread. ;) Haha.

Getting nervous yet? Haha

I'm getting really excited for this announcement. I want to know what rides all the parks are getting already. All the parks have kept their 2013 attractions hidden pretty well.

^A whole bowl of mayo topped with whipped cream.....I wana see it there by the end of the weekend :P

.....I do have to say I haven't been this anticipated for an announcement since '04 when KK was announced SF has done an amazing job keeping everything under wraps.....I mean yea we know some of the main points but I still have yet to hear all of the details. SF has done such a great job that I really hope the LA times doesn't spoil it for them this year and lets them announce it....in fact if I'm SF from now on I wouldn't even tell the LA times anymore until after I make the announcement lol
