    Y'all. WOW.

    Two points. First, yes I am submitting Parkscope to be part of CP media again this year (we got denied). Second, if they're doing a first ride fundraising event I WILL BE DOING IT.

    TPI is doing a survey of the most anticipated 2018 new coasters . Cedar Point's is winning hands down.

    Time Traveler looks great and all- but nothing is going to top SV. It could easily be the best coaster in the entire world.

    Any RMC Hybrid I've ridden on is my favorite ride in it's particular park. Iron Rattler is the best at Six Flag Fiesta Texas. New Texas Giant is the best ride at Six Flags over Texas, etc.
    This is the RMC Hybrid that puts all other RMC hybrids to shame.

    No brainer- I'm on this next year. Where do I send my application to parkscope @Joe ? :)

    Having just ridden Twisted Colossus, which was fantastic, this looks like pure insanity. I don't know what's crazier: the second half in that wooden forest or that last run of six airtime hills in a ROW. This ride looks exhausting and man do I want to ride it.

    Cedar Point just needs an actual GCI woodie and they'll be set for life.

    Something I've been thinking about that blows my mind: CP doesn't have a wild mouse coaster. I think a spinning wild mouse or something along the side midway near the Action Theater would round out the park well.

    I could definitely see the next coaster being more for families/children. Not sure if it would be a wild mouse though. I could see a B&M or Vekoma Jr. (with the newer trains) invert being added at some point.

    CP need to preserve most real estate for larger rides at this point. I wouldn't expext much less in size than a family ride like fire chasser express is.

    After SV, is it possible that we will see a flying coaster in the park in the future? Possibly launched.....

    Good point, after Wildcat left, CP just hasn't had any compact coasters. A Mauer spinning wild mouse would be great. The one at Lagoon was a blast.

    I may have to take a special trip out to Cedar Point to check out this wooden/steel monstrosity. I need to catch up on some credits I missed out last time I went.

    Taking a bad ride and making it into one of the best in the world is going to be so good for the park.

    Also one or two dark rides would be great. Get a Triotech in Frontierland and a Sally off the main midway or something. The park needs more things for guests when the weather is bad.

    Now, that's a drop.

    I pray for the day that an RMC coaster comes to Orlando.

    Oh, my apologies! Should've read it more carefully.
