Rumor has it Cedar Point opened up a plot of land where the Good Time Theater/Dodgem were for Shockwave due to their lack of stand-up coaster now.

Edit -
http://www.richmond.com/business/local/article_751d0234-a8bc-584c-b043-728a992a2502.html According the Richmond Times-Dispatch
Kings Dominion plans to make an announcement on a replacement next month.


So 2 things to take from this quote:
1.) August announcement
2.) The site will be used for 2016 and not sit empty until 2017

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Maybe this travesty of a coaster will get dumped on Michigan's Adventure instead.

Of course the scrap pile trumps all of these options...

DORNEY PARK ANNOUNCES VORTEX

In 2016, Dorney Park will open the tallest, fastest, and longest TOGO standup coaster on the planet! Brave the sensation of an 85 foot drop at a stomach-churning 52 degrees straight down, into a forceful vertical loop. But the terror has only started. Embrace a 50 foot tall airtime hill, going directly into an intense double helix. But it's not over yet! Fly through a total of four bunny hills, providing exhilarating pops of airtime, with a disorienting banked turn in between. Riders will be sucked into another dimension of thrills at speeds up to 50 MPH, all standing up! The coaster will have an eye-opening silver track color with navy blue supports!

Vortex! Be amazed by a new kind of thrill!

Opening April 2016

Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens forever!

1. Fury 325
2. Intimidator 305
3. El Toro
4. Apollo's Chariot
5. Skyrush

*basks in silence of Shockwave-free future*
One down, two to go (I'm looking at you, Anaconda and Hurler).
Realistically, though, while a new coaster would be nice, that plot ain't large enough.
*UNLESS*
the park also removed Flying Ace and the seldom-used arcade next door (and maybe the All Wheel Sports stadium could be relocated), then you might be able to fit a smaller coaster in that spot.
