Yeah, whatever happened to the I-73 they've been talking about for years? How long's that gonna take anyway? All that red tape really slows stuff down...

Doesn't seem like very many rides. I guess they're going for more of a Universal studio's feel...It's all about the experience.

Anyways I hope they get some sort of new (Not cloned) B&M.

I counted three coasters in that artwork with a possible fourth that was somewhat sketchy...

I actually saw the building and the sign for on accident. On our trip to Myrtle Beach, we were just driving by and noticed it. It was kinda in an odd place, and if I didn't know the area would probably not know how to get there.

Yeah the park is kinda in an odd place, and in a area that is full of abandoned buildings that needs some work. And they are working on fixing the traffic, but it wont be done for a while.

I think 3 coasters sounds about right, and they are going heavily on theming and the whole rock n roll idea so i think you are right when you say its going to be more of a universal type experience. I think their some of thier inspiration comes from Island of Adventure too.

Now with some of the rides revealed, what about the B&M? Have they shot it down or have they considered it to be a secret project?

After looking at the artwork again a little more closely, I think the "big" coaster-the B&M-may not have been announced yesterday.

The B&M is still there.....the big white coaster in the background. Looks to be lift, drop, loop, cobra roll, zero G roll, either a large flatspin or another vertical loop, a helix or an inclined loop and some helixes.

The reason I think this one was not part of the announcement is because when B&M were talking about it at IAAPA they said it would be themed to a "hard rock classic", and if you zoom in really closely to where the station would be and to the left of the bottom of the lift hill, you can see the "Zeppelin" that is rumored to be part of the theming.....

I wondered how much time they spent at IOA and universal orlando. The entrance seems to be a combo of both parks! :lmao:
"B&M will NEVER build a coaster over 300 ft..." until 2012
"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015
