With that said, I certainly hope they bring the same kind of charm to the park. I say this because as far as rides go, this place really does nothing for me. The Vekoma mine train is a plug-n-play, as is the roller skater. Led Zeppelin is just another B&M sit down looping coaster. Nothing impressive there. Honestly, I'm not necessarily a lift enthusiast so I couldn't give two shakes about the ferris wheel lift on Max RPM. I think, and hope, that this parks excellence will be in it's live shows, memoribila, and hopefully food. With that said, I will probably go this summer to check it out. I certainly hope it holds up to the quality of the restaurants as well as the Hotel and Casino.
I hate to be a downer, but this park doesn't scream thrills to me. I have to believe that their quality will come in the overall experience. Not the coasters. Anyway, just my two cents.

I agree, here, don't go here as a coaster enthusiast, go here as a park enthusiast. The B&M supposedly Jewl of the park is so basic it ridiculous. Everything is lined up in a perfect line. They might has well just had an out and back woodie to fit in the same footprint that would have probably been better and cheaper. Not to mention the toy train coasters, as i like to call em. Already sitting on the shelves, piece em together, plug em in, and your ready to role. lol. I like your name for them better so im gonna start using it.... plug and play. lol. But on a good note, the Interative water fountain, hidden special effect mirrors in the bathrooms, music theming and the dark ride is what is going to draw me to this park. I always dreamed of a park themed of music, each area being a different genre of music. This is as close as it is gonna get to that so, i'm going to enjoy the Hard Rock theme and not expect much of the rides. After seeing the rides constructed, i figure i no longer need a season pass. I'll just keep my Cedar fair and Busch Gardens season passes for this year. thought i was gonna need to add another one.
