Other Parks / Re: Frontier City Developments

I frequent this park a lot this season.  Fantastic park for it's size Tremendous stuff to do in this small park This season the shows are so good they are being nominated for awards. Especially Shake Rattle and Roll.  This season The 3rd TJS Showbiz Shannigans plays into the 5:15 gun show.  Pretty Clever the way it's done.
      Now back to Silver Bullet my opinion is I think the park should do what Magic Mountain did to Revolution.  They should refurbish this coaster the whole works new computer, Control board, system upgrades.  Also cosmetic upgrades like new paint, new coaster trains, Station updates. A total Refurbishment.  It's a Schwarzkopf and a really good Schwarzkopf the coaster is a prototype and 1 of three still running in the World. Coaster enthusiast travel from all over the World to ride this coaster.  A German coaster club was in the park earlier this month filming.  They came mainly for this coaster.  No this coaster doesn't need to go anywhere it's A great classic that need to be around for many more years.  Frontier City I have a suspicion that they will be adding a coaster next season. Rumor around the park is this coaster will be located in the Nightmare Mine building..For me I take that rumor with a grain of salt.  They added Steel Lasso for the 50th anniversary You know they are going to add something major for the parks 60th.

The news media has been worse this time around than any when it legitimately got stuck and people had to be rescued. They keep running story after story, facebook polls, etc. They also keep using the old stock footage with the firetrucks pulled up and everything - all covering up that this was a simple computer reboot.

1. Next time you see me remind me to talk about that
2. Did you see the latest teaser sign? "Clock's Ticking..."

Sure, and man I did miss that sign initially. So I guess they truly are knowingly playing at these two themes/names to keep us in the dark as long as possible. I love it!

ACE just announced a spring conference at SDC next year! You can bet this coaster is going to be on full blast throughout the enthusiast community. I can't think of a better way to advertise it! They really know what they are doing with the marketing build-up; I can't wait to see what August brings.

I keep having stuff pop up so I'm not sure when I'll be out there again. Possibly early/mid August.

A simpler fix:  change the name of the ride from the Silver Bullet to Russian Roulette.

I personally think you're trying to read too much into what Lisa Rau said.

1. Mountain - it is quite literally being built in the Ozark Mountains on the side of a hill
2. Mystery - no one "knows" what it is except the elite PTB
3. 18 - it is coming in 2018

Probably so, it's just that we know they share so many organization process assets on these rides. I am positive that at one point a lot of work was done on something similar to Mystery Mine for SDC based on what the chain got out of building that ride. Surely they would tap into that somehow if they are indeed building a highly themed coaster with a mine/mystery theme. Just a hunch.

They haven't made any references to the time traveler theme since the concept pitches. Either they are hiding it, or they went a different direction. For the last two coasters the final theme concept was different than anything in the pitches (that I can remember at least).
