Well, as you can tell, I tried getting some info out of him lol. Was worth a shot :)

But either way, wnycoasters has replied to instagram posts of DL with info and stating he has connections as well. Who knows, maybe he’s actually legit. Would be nice if we’re actually getting something big in coming years.

The ME train(s) was actually my guess for the small addition earlier because I had heard that the ME trains were at the end of their service life. So my official prediction is a water coaster and new ME trains (SFNE style restraints)/paint/retheme.

Maybe even a small water slide or splash pad, then you can factor in money for new trains and paint for ME AND RoS, as well as a return of Superman. That would be an amazing step towards getting the park back up to the SF standard.

And honestly ME isn’t even rideable anymore, it’s gotten TERRIBLE this year. New vest restraints might be the way of saving the thing. Even last Sunday when the park was flat out PACKED and everything had a crazy long line, ME was a walk-on, in years past it would still be at least in all the station switchbacks in days like that. Shows that even gp are realizing truly how bad it has somehow gotten this year, not to mention that disaster of a train that they are running this year.

Big is a matter of opinion. And I feel alot of theme parks have a 3 year plan to add something big, but then other suprise expenses come up, and they can't do it anymore. I'll believe a large attraction is coming, when they say its coming in less then 1 year....
