A Chance Revolution is what The Claw is at Hersheypark.

Swinging pendulumn ride with riders facing inwards and no floor. Same ride as The Claw at Hersheypark.

Anyone else think they might get a Zamperla rockin tug? Their site says attractions, and I was thinking it would be the perfect addition, especially since 2 other Cedar Fair parks are getting one for next season. I also know that they have 2.9 million dollars to spend for next season, and I don't think just the new chance revolution can cost that much.

Hmm. I dunno. I'm sure with 2.9 mil, dont expect 2 rides. Where do I think the rest of the money should go? Where the new floorless area will be. That area of the park is not completly used to having a lot of people walking around there. With the new floorless, is going to attract a good crowd. Maybe some new consession stands and bathrooms will pop up. Maybe even the peanuts stage would be moved to a new location. I dunno, all speculation.

Devildan, there already are bathrooms there, down where Hercules' exit used to be. I wouldn't expect them to do any work in that area until the floorless is built. During the construction, I'd expect a lot of truck and stuff to be there making a mess.

The bathrooms by Herc's exit are staying where they are.

The CS Stage will eventually move (not sure about this year, but it won't be there in '05, unless they do not mind having ride supports going through the stage).

There won't be any new shops or anything, but a modification to an existing one will take place.

And I hope they get a rock'n'tug - I started to wonder if they would after Valleyfair! announced one. There is a place in Camp Snoopy that is open that was supposed to have mini-tea cups in it - if it's big enough I guess they could use that.

CS Stage is the Camp Snoopy stage that's been located Herc's entrance for the past couple years.

I can't say exactly how I know where supports will go - but a solid hint was that the trees behind the stage were marked to be taken out.

I do not work for the park, haha.
