That would explain why these ride relocations are still progress? If we have a new corporate management, maybe they thought it was cheaper to give us a B&M that was being removed, rather than buying a new one.
If people pack the park for this new attraction, I believe the new corporate management will give us a new coaster for 2013. It's possible that they are resuming the old master plan that they had for this park. You never know, next attraction could be the indoor ride we were suppose to get.
I don't know how many of the red zone staff were let go when the change in management took place but I highly doubt it that we'll see another coaster at the park so soon after this one.
Sadly I think that original site plan drawn up in 1999 by the original premier parks management team will not come to fruition,if it would've then we'd be seeing that 140 ft. tall,3,000ft long B&M standup that was originally planed for 2001 & not a relocated Iron wolf coaster from SFGRAM...still this may be a new beginning for a park that was long overdue for a major ride/coaster seeing as how every SF branded park currently in the chain has gotten mutliple coasters over the past ten years but this one.Right now I'm taking a wait & see approach to how SFI plans to upgrade the ride side of the park in the future before deciding if it would be worth visiting again.
