A smaller sized Windseeker would fit amazingly there.


It would fit well, but I don't see how that would help round out the park.

Inside Wild Things turnaround would be a better fit anyways.

That's what I meant ;)

It's a very well-rounded park already though. Great kids area, a solid blend of modern and older flats. Really, the only thing that would make it better is if they could get a multi-looper in there, possibly where Excalibur is. I mean, it's a really interesting ride for the fact that its only one of two like it, but its also really boring and taking up a lot of room that could go towards something much better.
Something clever or funny should go here.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

In Excalibur's spot they could put a Intamin Blitz Coaster similiar to Maverick, even it could have the twisted horseshoe roll and maybe one or two more inversion, Valleyfair! is a very good overall park, good selection of roller coasters but it needs to take out Excalibur and put in something way better. Just my take on it.

Guys, it would be a much better investment to remove the mini golf which is closed and condemned, the go-karts, and the never used amphitheater. This is a much better plot of land, more central in the park, and visible from outside the park.

^That is where Dinosaurs Alive will be going so no major coaster will go there. Believe me during CoasterCraze we spotted the blue prints since they had them out in a room and were working on them while we were getting a tour of the physical plant. So Dinosaurs Alive in confirmed for 2012.

Oh I should also add that a rumor is starting to go around about Excalibur and Thunder Canyons days are numbered for a major Soak City expansion. Though I am not sure on when this would be and if it will be a multi year expansion.

I read the park had to get special permission for Wild Thing and Power Tower, but I'm sure if they could get permission for Power Tower, they can get permission for a slightly shrunken Windseeker.

Dinosaurs Alive is actually coming to the park? I have young kids and won't waste my money on that lame ass attraction.

Hey there dude! Last time I checked the Dino Party wasn't going into the Go-Kart spot, but rather into Antique Autos. As I'm sure you're aware this spot has some actual differences in terrain and enough shrubbery to get the blood flowing. Don't know how scary Rexy would be in the middle of an open field. Look for Picnic Cove to be changed around a bit for next year as well...

So is antique autos getting removed for the Dino's? It actually makes sense to put the Dinos under the trees.

That's where bolts in the ground have been spotted, and where management has been seen surveying. It has been all but confirmed that Autos are on their way out. Don't look for the Go-Karts to last that much longer either though.
