Hey guys long time lurker of the forums here. I hate to burst everyone's dream bubble of a big ride for 2013 but on the parks Hot Air blog they had this to say about 2013, " Next year will be fun but lets enjoy this year first. Don't get too far ahead of yourself. It will be 40 years of the park but we don't really plan our capital based around anniversaries. We plan it based on what makes the most sense for us, but we'll celebrate, no worries!"
Take the statement however you want but I honestly just see another rehab year for 2013.
Here is the link where I got the quote: http://www.worldsoffun.com/blog-article/online-fun/Question
Ehhhh now that was 2 months ago...it would make sense to say focus on this season. That does make me think they may not be adding something too big, but seriously, World's of Fun - I see your annoying commercials that salute the thrill rider and say ride on. This thrill rider says give me something new to ride on!
Any hints for 2013? Flat or Coaster? Oceans of Fun? Any more talk about a Windseeker or is Cedar Fair playing wait and see with those?
No hints yet, stay tuned. We honestly don't really even think about future capital this time of year. We're just trying to get ready for opening day this year.

Again pushing off next year, in the same thing. Hopefully the corporation will see the desire for something big and thrilling. It's not like that Q&A session was just questions asked by coaster lovers - the GP seem to want a new big ride for 2013, too!
They also stated Timberwolf will be there for a long time...I still like the ride, but it's rough, long, and I'd love to see at least the helix go.

EDIT: That's odd. On All-American Thrills I guess there is this rumor going around that Cedar Fair has ordered 7-8 coasters for next year. Hmm.
(I think the park needs a launched coaster!)
I agree...and a launched looper would pretty much solve the problem that they could also use a good sit-down looper!
