The one on the actual Coasting for Kids website is even weirder... what's with the silver (or is it a "transparent checkerboard"?) on 5 of the flags but not the 6th? But even the 6th is showing the weird stripe with the yellow.

^ Quite interesting indeed. Looks like some fun with the Paint Bucket Tool could fix that easy peasy

Speaking of Coasting For Kids, does anyone know when registration typically opens? The website only says "park coming soon"
Last Coaster: Steel Vengeance @ Cedar Point
100TH COASTER: Steel Force @ Dorney Park
RIDE ON!

Attached. They used it very briefly in 2012.

EDIT: if you check out this link you can see the comments attached to the logo as well, it’s funny - they seem to be quite similar to comments made recently about the logos the park has used in recent discussion here. https://www.facebook.com/Darienlake/photos/a.435001974636/10150517055589637/?type=3

Ah, good times! Really though, I didn’t mind any criticism. I just hope Six Flags doesn’t pull my logo and rebrand the ride around the Joker or something like that.

If they do, I hope they’ll let me take the portal sign off their hands.

That would be awesome if they indeed let you have your sign! Let’s hope they keep that name around for a while though it’s nice!

In other logo news (since I’m seemingly obsessed now), Six Flags Over Georgia has made a post with a similar logo, perhaps they’re rolling it out to a few different parks for 2019.

Crikey, you're back DougMJr! I feel like its been a while since you've been on here.

Anyways, I do have to admit that I actually would not mind a Joker retheme for Rolling Thunder. It's already Green and Purple, after all.

However, what I hope for the most is Ride of Steel getting rethemed back to Superman and Mind Eraser being rethemed to Riddler just like SFNE did. That would be awesome if they gave the same treatment to Mind Eraser! :)

I will say that the logo with the roller coaster in the background is different and refreshing for SF.

I agree with theAmericanKnight that I hope SF does give some love to a few of the coasters that desperately need it. If they could rethemed Mind Eraser and add the new restraint system, it may make it actually rideable. They also need second trains all around

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

Sounds like don't expect second trains on Pred or Viper this year. Some of the first parts for SkyScreamer have been sneaking in, though. Also Rolling Thunder should look a little different in its carriage as it's getting repartitioned into three sections instead of two.

I Guess Donkeys Are Okay
