^I don't think even the most eccentric fans would hope for a hyper coaster with CC in its current position. However, the idea of a spinner is a good one. I know its a popular guess, but I mean, the Herschends have recently done well with Gerstauler, and we all know how one good job leads to another within the chain. I just hope we don't get a basic layout if one is indeed in store for us.

Hmmm, I hear S&S has announced that the first installation of their El Loco concept will be in America in 2008. With most parks already announcing their new stuff, and the Herschends having benefited well from the past 2 S&S projects (not to mention Accelerator), this could be a good possibility for CC. Then again, it doesn't quite seem like the type of ride they would go for, as they already have 2 smaller steel coasters. Besides, it has low capacity and is somewhat expensive. 

Still, it seems like it'll be either FC or CC that gets this.

The park will be the only one of the 3 to get a new ride next year.  I will let you know more about this new attraction soon -- just don't get too "wet" from the anticipation

Hmmm, maybe another Splash battle? That or one of those S&S drop & splash things. A water ride is a definite good choice though, seeing as the only one they have currently is a crummy log flume. Will this replace it?

EDIT: Ah, I hear it is the Shoot-D-Chute from Geauga Lake... interesting...

How will it be themed? Have any pieces arrived yet.

Damn I wish I lived closer to Branson.

So much for it going in the employee parking lot - the old Shute-the-chutes is now off the ride list. Tch, it didn't have much time left anyway, but now they are still down to a single water ride.

I hope they throw in some cool water play things into the Roaring Falls area, kind of like the fountains over by the Wildcat.

Hello,

This is basically the same comment I left with the news "Shute D' Chutes to Leave CC":

This will be my third year with CC and I will be the lead of Area 4 (Fireball, Paris Wheel, Swing Twirl, Shoot D' Chute), and I have been reading about the speculation of the chute leaving. I was worried for my area and I e-mailed my attraction manager at CC and she assured me that the chute isn't leaving. By the way, Roaring Falls has arrived and will be placed near accelerator. I was also going to distribute construction photos and area photos for Roaring falls, but I haven't received the e-mail from CC with photos I took with the park camera. If I make it back up there soon I will take my camera and get some.

My attractions manager will be away for a while but she said she would check out the website and find out why it is missing for the ride list.

Wow, sorry guys - I just assumed that since they had updated the site with the Roaring Falls information, the loss of the Chutes from the ride list couldn't be a mistake.

Thanks for the info, kfoster4, and welcome to the forums.

So what has been done so far construction wise, and how exactly is Roaring Falls going to fit by the Accelerator?

Sounds like a park expansion.  A couple years ago they had a carshow out that direction.  Maybe they plan to expand the park that direction.  It would be neat if they announced a new shop or restaurant that way too.  Expansion is good though.  Thanks for letting us know!  ;D

Kfoster just sent in some Roaring Falls photos. Here's a couple, I'll get them all added to the site tonight.
