I don't see what people hate so much about Timber Wolf. I love it so much. Last time I rode it (last summer) it was super fun and smooth! And I even rode in the back! I hope Worlds of Fun never decides to RMC it. I absolutely love the helix and the return to the station.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Funny, I think the helix and return to the station are the only bad parts to the ride. I'm hoping GCI comes back to finish the job.

I swear, with WOFs awful operations, they're slowly becoming the Fuji-Q of America. The only thing they need now is forced pat downs on every rider and an extra 3 seat belts on the coasters. :lmao:

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

When in reality it's not worth a 15 minute wait.


Awww... I like Mamba! It was the best coaster there when I was there last! (Granted, that was before Prowler or Patriot! :lol: ) Also, I didn't wait more than 15 minutes I don't think! ;)

That's a shame if their operations have really gotten that bad. When I visited WOF last year during Haunt, aside from Timber Wolf, operations were pretty good all around, especially on Mamba.

I wonder what Worlds of fun will announce for next year today? Hoping for a coaster, but realistically expecting nothing.
Please wake up. We are trying a new technique. We don't know where this will show up in your dream, but we hope this message will reach you. You are in a coma. Please wake up. Your family needs you.

Nordic Chaser - New for 2018
On Nordic Chaser, guests of all ages will board mini ships that rotate speedily around a circuit. The ride captures the imagination as guests experience the sensation of rising and falling along ocean waves. The ride will be placed in the park’s Scandinavia themed area.

“The new Nordic Chaser ride will allow parents and children the opportunity to make lasting memories together,” said Tony Carovillano, general manager, Worlds of Fun. “We strive to provide new and exciting changes at Worlds of Fun every year, and look forward to having more families experience every aspect we have to offer at the park.”

I love donkeys more than me.

Based on the description it sounds like a Sea Storm type of ride so I wonder if Peanuts Pirates will be relocated from Carowinds to make room for their new Camp Snoopy.

I didn't even realize WOF was making their announcement today so this is a surprise for me. So, is this like the ride that was removed for Patriot? I don't remember it's name.
