Didn't care much for Soaring Timbers. Good family ride though!

As for Lumberjack, it's similar to Kennywood's Aero 360 which fantastic. One of my favorite flat rides.

I wouldn't hate it if some other park somewhere got another one of these (HUSS still sells them but they stopped selling the very popular breakdance 1, 2 and 3???) and that'd be a less prototypey version, possibly have the ability to be a bit more intense and obviously more reliable. Because it really is a fantastic asset to have in visual value and impact.

^^Sledgehammer was a VERY popular ride when I was at the park in 2014. I had heard so much about it, etc. It felt a little over-hyped once I rode it. Perhaps it would be better with the seats facing outwards? Don't get me wrong, fun ride, just wasn't blown away with it. I would take that massive Orbiter (HUSS Skylab) over it any day. Kings Island used to have one of those...

Did they ever get a better ride program for Soaring Timbers? How is it running? Any recent video of it operating?

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

They are missing out on a Meet the Mountie greeting area and a water slide called Niagara Falls
.

I have a sneaking suspicion that they will build a slide that uses maple syrup instead of water and then call it Niagara falls.

Nice couple of additions for 2018. You will never please everyone. I have always said that I trust Cedar Fair in how they run this park, and I think some people tend to forget the last days of Paramount and how "little" was added to the park in that time. If you list all the additions since Cedar Fair took over (including Behemoth, Leviathan and WMG) it isn't a short list.

Looks like KingsWood Theatre is biting the dust to make room for the new indoor water park/ resort. The theatre is usually home to a halloween haunt maze, but that maze has been discontinued this year and nothing to replace it. Also the theatre can be seen being torn apart along with a new entrance to the park being built beside it with two entrance booths that have appeared with wiring. I'm assuming with no knowledge that the hotel may go where Kings Wood Theatre is with that near by entrance to the park for hotel guests. Now the parking lot near this site has new construction markers all over it that cover such a large area and this could be for a parking garage as our parking lot this summer has reached beyond max capacity on most weekends and if this hotel is going here like rumoured it will eat up some spots as well.

Attached below are the pictures showing how full our parking lot gets with cars parked on the grass this season (never seen this before) and the new construction markers on a large portion of the parking lot near to the rumoured resort site.

So FULL!

I've never seen the parking lot this full!

new markings appeared in the parking lot, all located near kings wood and seem to be blocking in a large portion of the lot.

Looks like some demolition in Kings Wood with no signs of Haunt. This theatre hasn't been used this year to my knowledge neither except for a christian rock band concert.

About your post with the new parking lot markings. I have no idea what that is. Also you said their building a new entrance with scanners? Actually the "new" Kingswood Theatre entrance was built last off season. Also yes there is scanners at that newly redone entrance. I know in fact it was built off season because I had a wind orchestra concert in the theatre in May this year. They're in the midst of refurbishing the seats because when we were there they had crew cleaning and re putting the new seats in. They usually also every season replace or put away the black curtains/plastic raps so they don't get damaged in the colder months. Also by this time this year they usually start taking out the seats in the amphitheatre.
