“New Ride” announcement finally teased for the park, assuming this is a generic thing that most parks are probably sending out though, I wouldn’t expect it to mean much.

Good, so six flags is continuing adding an attraction at every park every year. So hopefully it is some flat ride to replace Pirate or Sleighride. Time to go!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I am betting on either an S&S Free Spin or a Zamperla Giant Discovery. Both would be wonderful additions for the park.

Im going to go out on a limb and say water coaster with something else small, maybe some re-theming or something.

2 + 2 = donkey!

Does RoS/Superman whatever it's called now still only have 1 train? I'd love for a second train announcement. Woot!

I wrote the book about donkeys!

I'm especially hoping for an S&S Freespin. I have heard great things about those rides.

Though I doubt it means anything more than trying to boost social media involvement, the park has also been doing these polls in advance of National Rollercoaster Day this friday. There are absolutely no hints anywhere for the park - as there typically aren't but I wonder if there is any reason otherwise to do these little polls

Keep in mind, I'm rooting for a 2020 coaster re-theme, so if that does end up being the 'new for 2020' goodness, I would not be disappointed in the slightest

I used to work at Darien 08-10 opening crew for motocoaster, I even met someone from Zamperla I believe his name was Anthony if I remember correctly, from what I remember that we were told by the upper management is that it was only going to be there until the license with OCC ended.

^ well... that ended like 2 years after the ride opened so I guess that changed.

EDIT: "The coaster was originally named the Orange County Choppers Motocoaster (OCC Motocoaster) when it first opened in 2008. However, the name was changed to the Moto Coaster in 2010 after the naming rights with Orange County Choppers expired."

The only 2 instances that still exist of OCC branding are the ride sign near Beaver Brothers and the logo on the side of the station. They even put some "funky" word art on the map for a year or two in place of the logo they used in 2008.

At this point it is known only as the Motocoaster. Now that it has been on site for 11 years, I'm not sure what changed (aside from management), but its obvious that it was something major enough that the ride found a semi-permanent home at the park for way longer than anticipated.

I know now that its just motocoaster I still go to the park since I'm a member, I think it had something to do with the skyloop that fell thru at magic springs that was supposed to go to elitch gardens, and I also believe that parc got in over there heads
