What??? I had no idea this was going to happen. No trip to the park was complete for me without going on this.


Yeah, showed up on the CGA park blog today. As far as I know there was no announcement before this. https://www.cagreatamerica.com/blog/2018/blazing-new-trails-all-around-the-park

Also taking out a Planet Snoopy ride, "Snoopy’s Splash Dance".

On the plus side, some bathrooms are being renovated and a bunch of midways are being redone. So...there's a lot going on at the park!

Damn! The one ride I never rode or cared for that much in CGA, and now I'll never be able to ride it. I knew I should've ridden it last season when I had the chance.
Oh well. Let's hope something interesting will take place in its location. :p

Wow... great mapping of the stuff being removed. Hopefully they will kill the go carts and you'll have one enormous area... maybe something like Raging Bull. Shame the park has removed 3 adult rides in the last 2 years. I wonder if removing the Endeavor is a sign that the other ones at Carowinds, Dominion and Valleyfair are in their last days. I prefer the non inverting swinging ships anyway. Lots of exciting activity in this park.

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

On another note: just an observation, all of CGA's rollercoaster lift hills (with the exception of Psycho Mouse) all point in approximately the same direction, is there a reason for this, surely it can't be a coincidence.


It is a coincidence. Stealth's lift hill was pointed in the other direction.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

So true. I always forget how small the track really is.

Can’t wait to see the rock work take shape!
