You should have listened to me! I told you to trademark the slide names! At least we now know Lagoon has "ZERO" creativity (Big Shocker) and has to steal their Coaster Names from a Musical and a Competing Water Park.
I find it somewhat odd that Lagoon continues to add these small coasters to the park (not including Wicked). I realize they have to deal with Farmington when they plan something but I thought adding Wicked would be the start of seeing some slightly bigger attractions coming to the park.
^Looking at satellite images of the park, Lagoon doesn't seem to have much room unless they want to do something like Cliffs or Indiana Beach. Then, you have Lagoon being a family owned park, which limits the amount of capital they have available to spend. If you look at their coaster selection, which is pretty impressive(especially for a family owned park), you'll see a lot of clones. While these aren't appealing from an enthusiast perspective, they are great for business as they are cheaper than custom models, and they get people through the gates. While I think it would be great to see another major coaster get built, I could see a SLC or the rumored X-Car getting built, Lagoon seems to be doing great with what they are doing.
I'm glad this park keeps adding to what already seems to be a decent coaster collection (at least in number; not the worst in quality, either). At this point I'm considering a 2012 visit (especially if rumors come true), although of course I wouldn't refuse a 2011 visit if that happened to work out for me.
