Odds are that it will be built over everything and then people will complain that it's an eyesore. Can anyone tell me if Grona Lund has the same problem?

Take your last ride on Boomerang during the Knott’s #BoysenberryFestival before the coaster closes forever on April 23.

I really do hope it goes to MiA. I know it's just a Boomerang, but it would be a good fit for the park.

I'm surprised that it's getting removed so early in the season. But hey. It's not like I rode Boomerang often anyways. Hopefully something good goes in that spot for 2018.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

^ Well, we don't really know when it's being removed. Just that it is closing early. It could be just to save operating costs through the season. Or, they could start removal the day after it closes. If that is the case, I think it would be safe to speculate a rather large addition coming.

Well this is intriguing...

I have to say, the timeline of this does allow for some wild speculation. You would think that the park would run it though the summer season if they could, so this does imply that they need to get a head start on a pretty large project. Also with this year being kind of a slow year for them in terms of in park capex, maybe that allowed them to structure things so that they could open 3 major new coasters in 2018? This is all wild speculation, but it's fun. You know they have something big planned.

Ps: My money's on Michigan's Adventure or Valleyfair.

I think Michigan's Adventure is due for a "new" roller coaster

No coast rider was added in 2013
