Your 5 year plan and predictions for any park

Postby adamd » Thu Aug 07, 2014 2:29 pm

You are the president and whatever you present to the CEO of the chain will be approved for your 6 year plan (2015-2020) for your two home parks. I say a 6 year plan instead of 5 cause some parks have pretty solid rumors for this year, so if your park has a solid rumor use that as your 2015 plan. What would you do (make realistic)?

Knotts Berry Farm:
2015: dark ride similar to Wonder Mountain to replace KOD. Would make longer, and have better looking trains (used this since thats a pretty solid rumor and was pretty much confirmed via an article with Cedar Fair CEO). Start removing Jaguar.
2016: It is time for a thrill coaster. 12 years without one is far too long and all the renovations on classics and family add ons have gone very well. Assuming ridership on Jaguar is low I would have it removed as it takes quite a bit of space and add the rumored giga. I would use the lake and have it go through ghost town by Ghostrider (the lift would go toward GR) and use some of the backlot for it and the finale on the lake.
2017: Completely re-track Ghostrider from RMC. NOT a conversion just a full re-track and maybe some new coaster trains. Also add some new rides and a kiddie coaster to Camp Snoopy. Start removing Screaming Swing and fire station next to it.
2018: Remove Screaming Swing and the fire station next to it and add a custom Euro Fighter.
2019: Add some new flats around the Silver Bullet area. Start Removing Boomerang, Coast Rider and the two flats.
2020: Remove Boomerang, move Coast Rider along with the two other flats to a different area in the park, and use that area for a Chance Mega Light.

SFMM:
2015: Iron Colossus. Just one continuous ride with possibly two lifts/two drops. Lots of airtime and a couple inversions. Spend this year and next focusing on the park appearance.
2016: RESTORE REVOLUTION. 40th anniversary new trains, new brakes. New water ride in the old Deja Vu area. Also work on park appearance. Start removing Green Lantern and Tidal Wave.
2017: Remove Green lantern and Tidal Wave replace with a ride like Maverick or Cheetah Hunt. Also add some new flats throughout the park.
2018: Interactive dark ride. Start removing Viper
2019: Remove Viper replace with a giga or a lengthy Chance Mega Light. Start removing ride with low ridership
2020: Remove said ride with low ridership and replace with a Wing Rider or Euro Fighter.

Epcot:
2015 - Remove Spaceship Earth and replace it with a great big ball of cheese. Have a ride going through it and call it "The Great Big Ball of Cheese."
2016 - Demolish the entire World Showcase area and dedicate the entire land to a show featuring the most unicyclists in the world. Would need more than 2,000 performing at one time.
2017 - Add 8 more theaters for Soarin' and show 16 minutes of insane Japanese TV commercials in each theater.
2018 - Melt the Great Big Ball of Cheese attraction. Open fondue restaurant.
2019 - Put a stack of elephants 300 feet high in the middle of the unicycle show.
2020 - Re-build Horizons, but have it be a ride about bees instead of the future.

Oh I thought you were saying people were going to say like a giga at Disney, but with how you meant it I don't see how its ridiculous if people post realistic options for the next 6 years. Heck if one actually becomes true it'd be cool to say I would have done the same thing the park actually did. I just think it'd be fun to see what people would do if they ran the park. I think a lot of people on this site have some really cool ideas, now if they come to fruition or not remains (most likely not) to be seen.
