It's more of a "there is plenty of room in the park, we don't need to double up" and being able to see and interacting are two different things.

The courthouse theater, now called the riverfront pantyhose is used extensively during world fest and Christmas and is where the music festival competitions fit high school groups are held

Layout of this Mack Spinner for China is interesting

Would it fit in a Mountain,  is that a small footprint, what could it be themed to in SDC? Just hypotheticals.

What rides do we have that you count as having a low PPH?

 I'm sure Mack could come up with something that hit at least 900 an hour if they were asked to considering EuroMir supposedly can handle 1600.


Anyhoo, that looks like a fun one, love that drop into the high banked curve. Can tell it's likely going to be enclosed for the most part as you can see the steel rebar sticking up  from the floor around the ride.

PK moves fast on the rare occasion it is working perfectly. It was working well for us in March and it actually made a difference to have three cars going instead of two because usually when three are going, two are always waiting out of the station.

Why not take out the courthouse theater and put a dark ride there? They hardly seem to use that theater anymore.

Riverfront Playhouse is used during World Fest, Bluegrass and BBQ, Southern Gospel Picnic, the Harvest Festival, and Christmas. About the only time it is dark is during the summer.

And even then, there is usually something in it.  This year has just been very thin entertainment wise

In reference to the spinner above. I just have never been on a spinning coaster anywhere that I want to ride again. I think SDC is better than that and can become more creative in what they do. I agree with shave that its not the uniqueness of something its the layout. I still love the old Screaming Eagle at SFSL. Its old and no where near the height or speed of modern day coasters but the layout and ride still gives me grins. Same with the Beast in Cincinnati.

I haven't been yet this year for the summer festival. Some summers the Opera House is open while Riverfront is dark, and in other summers Riverfront is open while the Opera House is dark.

Whatever we get next, let's hope they step it up to some of the theming the Euro parks are pulling off these days. The new Eftling dive coaster is about done and wow at the effects to sell the ride.

THat wouldnt be much of a argument.  I am always astounded it takes them longer to load a car than it does for one to complete the entire circuit.
