^^Windseeker isn't plopped down in the middle of nowhere, it's in the Coney Mall area near Vortex, Action Theater, and the Racer. They've replaced most of the concrete in that area with new brick paths too. It's not going to have any theming, but of course once they're done building it they will add more greenery around the ride. I don't really know what you're talking about, it looks great to me along with the surrounding area.

Maybe it's just because it isn't finished. I stand corrected then; once they've finished it, I hope that it doesn't look how it currently does (sore thumb).

^Maybe since Cedar Fair doesn't meet your expectations, they should pay Six Flags to put in onboard audio and some lame fire effects. And then give it an original name such as Batman or Superman. I dont know. Just an idea :?r

It could have been worse, they could have placed it near Drop Zone/Tower whatever it's called. They would have been like fraternal twins.

^Now hopefully they can get it running on a consistent basis again...good to see that they're giving it some TLC. Crypt has been going downhill fast the last few years.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Me would like one shipped to KD asap!


I second that!!

Was riding flying ace yesterday & that thing gives me vertigo & it's only 85 ft tall so imagine that same basic experience from the height of DT or I305....I'll bet alot of folks are gonna come of shaking after the ride worse than I did on skycoaster.
