Dive Coaster is 2020.  YouTube SheiKra, Griffon and Valravn to see the type of airtime these coasters produce.

Amazing you know the results of the survey and seen the bill of sale for the 2020 ride. Outstanding work!

I'm not sure what's cuter.   Your lame attempt at being savage.  OR  You thinking the results of that survey matters.

Maybe you and I should start a change.org petition for our prefered coaster. You are familiar with those right?

Call it the Dolby Coaster because it's all around you.

Found these red marker flags next to the line for the swings. There are red flag markers all around the outside of the swings, in the forbidden area. I also saw the red marker flags going down to Echo Hollow, where I am now. They were playing good music earlier, so I know this will be a good show.

Red means electric (for what it's worth)

I'm not sure what's going on here, but it sounds like this could escalate and get someone suspended if it continues.  Let's try to keep things civilized and stay on topic.

So now that were starting to really see Markers and what not when do we think we will start seeing some actual ground moving? It's starting to get exciting! ;D

For some reason I want to say late may/june? Impossible to know the schedule especially when we have no idea what this entails, but that seems to have become a typical start time for really early stage work. Hard to say if the surveying means they'll start work soon - I've seen some sites sit for ages after being surveyed.

Did we guess early and close enough on Outlaw Run that they're being more tight-lipped on this one?

Since it is still presumed to likely be a B&M, does anyone on here remember the time frame from when Wildfire was being plotted and actual construction began?

I asked some employees if they saw any red marker flags. They said they never heard about a coaster next year. They thought it would be the year for ride upkeep/clean up, but I know they cleaned up a lot this year including rides.

I saw the Talking Picture in Flooded Mine is still not working. I asked Sarg (Manager of Flooded Mine) about it and he said they dont have enough money to fix it.....even though they have $40 million for a new coaster....It looks to me that Flooded Mine will probably be the location of the 2020 ride, and they will have a big celebration for it. Ive heard several people say it before: It is slowly disappearing. I think they put the new roof on it this year just so it will be able to last 3 more years. There was also no music playing at all in there and I dont think it will be playing again.

Today I saw they moved the Flooded Mine picture thing down a few feet from the entrance. In its place is this building. I looked under the flap and there is nothing but pieces of wood inside. Not sure what they are putting here.

Man, that absolutely sucks about FM.  They have plenty of money to "fix it"....they just don't want to.  How sad that the PTB are losing touch.

As of right now, FM will make its 50th anniversary.  The "plot" rumored to be the place for the 2020 addition is over by PK and WF.

I too will have to respectfully disagree with the idea of its imminent demise. When I filmed my ride-thru video back in March the ride experience to me was the best its been in many years. The props, lighting and effects were greatly improved. Even the music was playing during my visit.

Well the sound didn't work from the saw mill room to the end last time I rode.  The dynamite room sound hasn't worked both times I've been there this year. The animatronic in the load station was working the last time I was there.  Can't remember the last time I saw it working

Hope this is okay to post here, but I found this interesting tidbit regarding the 2017 coaster posted on the TPR forums. Apparently employees are now being being told that they will have to start parking elsewhere to make way for the construction staging. The first signs of construction activity on the plotted site will probably start showing up by the middle of next month I bet.
