For some reason, I don't see Ed trying this hard just to put in portable Carnival rides. One document I read awhile ago showed a Wooden Warrior like coaster.

Carnival Ride? Aha that's funny. Ed Hart is not that type of guy. I could however see maybe a kiddie type carnival ride though or scrambler. Other than that the only rides you will see is Huss Rides, Zamperla Rides, and maybe a S&S ride.

Maybe Chance, Mack, Mondial, Intamin, Fabbri, and KMG and well.

I hope they add a Huss Jump 2 to the park.

What??? Where do these kinds of comments even come from???

Yes, I'm sure they will add a Huss Jump 2 to the park....because a Huss Jump 2 is a flat ride that all the parks just fighting each other to get. Factory can't make enough of them....

I can't see Ed doing any business with Intamin, or I can't see Intamin wanting to do any business with Kentucky Kingdom. Remember what happened to the last and only Intamin ride that was in the park SMH. But this is Ed Hart and not Six Flags.

But I can see a Jump 2 being added to the park. That ride is unique and you can't find it anywhere else unless you go to Canada (I believe). I could see it being located at Skycoasters former location. But what I see being added before a Jump 2 is a Zamperla Air Race.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Go to anybody who's a regular to Canada's Wonderland and ask them about Sledgehammer. Guarantee they'll tell you it's always having down-time. That, and the machine itself is massive. It takes up a huge amount of space for a ride that's not entirely "fulfilling," unfortunately. (Can't think of any other words. :-p ) I know Ed's a big fan of having unique, and even first-of-a-kind rides, but for practical purposes I'd vote yes on the Air Race before something like Jump2 as well. Meh, just my opinion I guess.

Still supporting my home park however I can, even though things still look a bit risky and shady; especially with the State Fair Board.

A Huss Jump 2 would nicely fill the "weird-ass ride that never works" role left open when the Quake was removed.

^^Those regulars of Canada'a Wonderland will also tell you that Sledgehammer is not as thrilling ride as it looks.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!

That's just it. Ed Hart's plan has always been to add marketable attractions you couldn't find in the region (Vampire, Quake, T2, Hellevator, Chang (*), Mile High Falls (*)) and a Huss Giant Jump 2 would fit the bill. At least to me it would.


Also, When I was at Canada's Wonderland for 2 days in July; The ride had no downtime, The only ride that did was Dragon Fire. Yes I went on it and found it one of the better flat rides I've been on. That and an S&S Screaming Swings are my top 2 flat rides.
