So, are we going to talk about Fireman's Landing on this thread, or not?

It's the 2015 thread about what's coming up for an area that's already there.  These threads often try to hang on to life after the reveal.  This is merely the a dated thread's way of dying.

I provided link above to latest satellite view of site.  l think if you took in the employee lot and all available space you might could squeeze in coaster behind Fireman's Landing.  Other than that things are getting boxed in accept for out along train run.

There is a ton of unsed space on the other sides of the park.  Like behind wild fire and powder keg.

When I zoom in, I see the 2013 version. When I zoom out, I can see the 2015 version and Fireman's Landing. They're just covering up the old with the new, or trying to anyways... This is what I see.

Google Earth doesn't update all forms of an image every time they update.  It depends on how high resolution they photographed an area with that swipe.

It doesn't even have to be a large space for a decent coaster.  There's room between Fireman's Landing and the old Waterboggin tower.

Here's a photo of coaster going in at Phantasialand with a parking lot in view for scale(folks that hate other parks look away)

Take a look at this first coaster. Thats a coaster that takes up little space because the track is all above you. Plus, its very different. Which is what you want at SDC. http://youtu.be/TcJKqigC4iQ

No. That's not a good fit for SDC. It needs to be something the whole family can experience together that is high in PPH

The only thing that would be good for is for maybe an indoor ride, yes indoor. Think inside a grain mill like this


But Swoosh is right, needs to be higher Capacity and more family oriented.

Not to mention it sounds like SFSTL will get a clone either next year or 2017
