Now that we've gotten the 2013 announcement, speculation on 2014 and beyond will inevitably increase. So to condense it all, here's a topic for just that purpose.

Enjoy ;)

What do you think the likelihood of a new coaster is?

In all honesty though, I think that the park will be getting a new coaster of some sort. It's hard to determine what kind. I'm going to pray for an Intamin, complete circut, with no launches.

^ I think the likelihood of a new coaster is very probable! 2014 will be Great Adventure's 40th anniversary and it will be their third year without a coaster (and 6 without a new one)!

For 2013, I could see Great Adventure go two different ways.

- The first way would be adding a new Roller Coaster in Movietown in Chiller's former footprint. With the new coaster, the park could re-create the old country section and combine it with Movietown to become Gotham city. In the former old country area, 2 new flats are added (an enterprise and a new Musik Express) that are themed to the section. Also, the former Autobahn building would be transformed into a sitdown restaurant.


- The second option I see is Great Adventure focusing another year on flat rides. I could see Great Adventure adding 4 or 5 new flat rides anchored by 1 or two major flats. I could see the park finally adding a new drop tower and also adding an S&S Screamin' Swing. With one or both of those being the major flat, I could see minor flats added, such as an enterprise, Chance-Morgan Unicoaster, new Musik Express, and a Huss breakdance.

Just my two cents!

Crossing my fingers for either a new coaster or some big flats! I'd love to see a Lakefront revamp with a new Dolphin and Sea Lion show/arena, rennovations for the Grandstand, and a custom Dive Machine centered on that empty plot of land between the lake and Main Street. That's my dream addition.

If we do get a new coaster for 2014, I would hope for the following:

1) It would have a custom layout
2) It would have a non comic book superhero/villain related name and theme
3) It would be big and make use of the lake
4) For the love of God do not paint it green! lol

My first choice for what type would be a B&M Wing Rider and second choice a Dive Machine, I would much rather have a wing rider though. I wasn't too fond of them at first but after seeing Wild Eagle and the Gate Keeper announcement I think a custom WR would be fantastic for the park. And we could throw in a few flats in Old Country :)

Yes, a water ride is needed. Saw Mill Log Flume seems to always have a long line except at night and with the rapids only open part of the season, we could use another water ride open the majority of the season like the log flume.

Hoping we get a Dive machine. Wing riders are all the rage right now, but having ridden griffon down at BGE, i really want one for our park. That ride is awesome!

I would also be happy with a drop tower on kingda ka's tower :drool5:
