Cedar Point to remove DT and SS for Wing Coaster

So that makes 4 family rides gone in 2 seasons. I really don't think they need another steel mega coaster. If there's one thing they NEED it's a decent new woodie.

Would be nice to get a bobsled coaster at Dorney though.

I would have rather had the Bobsled than Stinger or Demon Drop. On some other sites I have seen people already saying sarcastically how it's going to Dorney. It's become a joke with enthusiasts that anytime a CF park gets ride of a ride, it will be going to Dorney.

I really don't like how all those family rides are being removed. It's the same with with Krazy Kars removed for Demon Drop and to a lesser extent Stinger in Laser's spot (not that I would call Laser a family ride but Laser had a smaller height requirement and has less inversions).

It seems like CF and SF are doing the opposite thing now. CF is removing the family rides and SF added 3 family rides and 1 thrill ride to Great Adventure since the park is really lacking tamer rides.

what did sf add...have been contemplating a trip but heard many flats and family rides are gone...also that at times 1/3 of coasters could be down...worth the risk if I score really cheap tix I guess....

Great Adventure actually added new flats this year. They're still sorely lacking shows, flats and family attractions, but the new flats are a great start. They include: Sky Screamer - a swing ride that goes up a tower, similar to the WindSeeker rides CF has been building, Air Jumbo - a family/kids ride that was removed from the Golden Kingdom area a few years ago, and Deja Vu - a retro themed Scrambler. They are also supposed to be opening new bumper cars, but they haven't even started building them yet.

They were supposed to be open by late June, at this rate August seems more likely. I'm really looking forward to them since I miss Krazy Kars.
