I like Knott's, after going to Sux Flags Tragic Mountain, Knott's is like a breath of fresh air - of course it doesn't hurt that every time I go all rides are running and have no lines with bounce backs.
I have heard stuff about this ride, I was told - think Dragon's Fury (not a Mack?), that is supposed to be a good ride isn't it? Sounds like this will be a fun addition to Knott's.
Paris Hilton - I'd ride Paris but will that be an upcharge - like your soul or something?

Don't know if this was just enthusiass talk, but wasn't the purpose of building SB so high above the lake was so that the Walter K could still keep running under it? Anyone know for sure, just recall hearing this somewhere and was surprised when they filled in the lake anyways. Otherwise, why build SB so high off the ground, a nice big first drop would've been way better.
^^ I believe SB was running slightly over budget so instead of filling the lake back in completely, they only filled up half of it and then had the train take the path of the boat. You can still see the original path the train took through the shrubberies. Plus you know, what's a Cedar Fair park without more cement?
^ That makes more sense. With basically gutting that section of the park for SB, if having to clear Jaguar was the only reason for the elevated track, why didn't they just design the first drop and supports away from Jaguar? Having basically a clean slate of flat land to work with, with only a small section of Jaguar to clear, no reason why the first drop had to be placed and elevated right over Jaquar.
Bummer if we did lose the Walter K just because of a budget cutback. Should have just waited till they had the funds to finish the lake the right way to keep Walter K. cruising . But I guess cement looks better than a nice scenic lake/boat ride .
Silver Bullet isn't bad at all! It's better than nothing, IMO. I am just giddy for this ride. I can't wait. I'll be there taking pictures of the building of it overtime, so expect some pics as soon as progress starts on this ride.
^ Honestly, I'd prefer the "nothing" that was there before Silver Bullet. Id take Reflection Lake, the Walter K, the Berry Stand, the mission models, and the quiet atmosphere over a ho-hum B&M any day.
