Basing on the stats, this sounds like a new Gerstlauer Infinity coaster, but I don't think this might be for Valleyfair.

As interesting as this is, where would they put a roller coaster? The dino's contract has until 2019 and then it will be gone, and I just can't think of any other reasonable locations that would be a good spot for crowds and a new coaster.

Old RipTide and scrambler location. Could also relocated or remove bumber cars for more space. They also could remove the amphitheater and use that space(I don’t think it’s used for anything anyways).

But more importantly, I loved how the coaster ran, the seats were unbelievably comfortable and looking at their website they have a lot of options that would fit very well with Valleyfair.

On another note; that post that bzurn posted about is curious. Screamscape is reporting it as a teaser for Hangtime at KBF. That doesn't make any sense because the coaster has been open for months. CGA maybe but it seems to me the wording fits in with Minnesota almost perfectly especially when they mention it getting very cold and very hot. And when it said across the Mississippi, that can only mean KBF, CGA or Valleyfair. I don't think WOF is west of the Mississippi. So.......who knows! Didn't our current GM come from Carowinds, a park that loves to tease well before any announcements?


OK, I answered my own question. There are a few scattered small coasters or Mad Mouse type coasters built by Mack but nothing major. But if the rumors are true Carowinds new coaster is said to be a Mack double launch, multiple inversion coaster similar to "Icon" I really hope so! A coaster like that will cost CedarFair about $22,000,000. Maybe a bit high for Valleyfair but maybe????

Agreed. That is why I think this teaser has nothing to do with VF.

Sure they could put it there but that means they would have to remove everything or some of the things you mentioned and prepare the space for a coaster and have it up by next year. I really doubt that will happen. To do that they would have had to start this project already and there is no signs of that at all. What ever is or is not happening next year we should know about within a month.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

The only hint of Valleyfair is the Mississippi River, but we'll see.

I honestly don't think that's even a big enough detail to imply that it would be Valleyfair to be completely honest. My guess is it will just be a general improvement year since we haven't had one since 2013.

I'm headed to cars & coffee next week on Saturday and hitting VF on Friday. Opinions on buying fast pass this time of year if I'm spending most of my time on coasters?

If you are there for the opening of the park there is no reason you should need Fast Pass. Just hit Mad Mouse first due to capacity issues and then hit the rest of the coasters and thrill rides. The only reason you would need a fast pass was if you are really pressed for time. If you are there at opening you should have the coasters done by about 2 pm and have the rest of the day to do what you want at the park..

Thanks for the feedback. Was anyone there today that can speak to Friday wait times? My kid and I tend to go on everything many many times.
