I wonder if Bill ranks sky rides like the majority of people ranks coasters. :br

Why do I still have a donkey title???

:lol: I barely even ranked coasters until TPR made their own poll. That’s too much work.

Plus, they’d all be in a first place tie. Lol

^IDK, honestly Busch Gardens' skyride kicks Cedar Point's a$$. Maybe we should make skyride ranking a thing. :lol:

Great to hear the rave reviews about Railblazer. Can't wait until I can get back and try it, maybe later this year?

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

If sky ride rankings were a thing, the bgw one would have to be way up there.

Bill actually ranks sky rides ABOVE coasters. That way he doesn't waste his time ranking coasters. ;)

Anybody else think that it's odd that CF decided to give CGA a coaster so soon after RailBlazer?

I thought they wanted to focus on CW and Carowinds more so than the west coast parks. I believe it's been four years since either of those parks have received coasters. (if you count Wonderland's Guardian as a coaster)

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Cedar Fair has repeatedly said CGA was on the list for major expansion after they reworked their lease with the city. You have to consider that outside of Boomerang Bay the park only received small expansions between Stealth in 2000 (which was removed for the aforementioned Boomerang Bay) and Gold Striker in 2013.

Plus both Carowinds and Canada's Wonderland are receiving major coasters next year.
