If they decide to install a Jersey Devil clone. I think this is the area it would use. With the turnaround being right next to Demons lift hill and the station being by the go karts

LOL those screamscape rumors were prob sent in by someone on here. They are literally EXACTLY the ideas/what we've all talked about for quite some time.

Trust, the giga is exciting to dream about. Financially, it makes the most sense as it's highly marketable & for a park our size it again, just makes sense to add to the lineup. But to choose Intamin over B&M when we have a solidified relationship with them? I don't see it bein Intamin.

I've heard the RMC Raptor and B&M Dive Machine from an employee working on Goliath

Sometimes Employees have said rumors that have turned out true.

That 5 year plan by screamscape is an unrealistic pipe dream. I can't imagine the park getting three significant capital investments like that in such a short period of time. Also, a giga would likely be SF's biggest capital investment in over a decade. While the changes in SF's pricing strategy may eventually lead to larger capital investments, I can't see that happening for a long while.

I know these are just rumors. But a Single rail, Dive machine and giga would definitely give Great America one of the best coaster line ups in the world.

Yes! These rumors came straight out of sfgamworld forums :lol:

That rumor on screamscape lol

I personally would want to see Camp Cartoon getting rethemed to Looney Tunes. With the 2 rides missing in the back and overall “cry” of the other rides in that kids section. That section needs TLC immediately. I would rather have them do that next year. Fix the park before adding new rides.

Then in 2024, have add a B&M dive coaster in Demon/Buccaneer Battle area. Driving over the midway.

That’s just my opinion.

I dont think all three would get built... lets be honest a intamin giga would be awesome but are they willing to invest 25-30 million i n to a coaster again. I mean id rather ditch the two and get the one LOL

Let’s do a B&M giga instead (though I don’t see SF spending the money). Intamins are too unreliable. We went to Cedar Point 3 full days this June and only got on Millennium Force once, it was down so much, and Maverick broke down 2 of the 3 times we rode it. And we all know what’s going on with TTD there. Great rides, but there’s a reason Cedar Fair stopped buying Intamin coasters.

Orion is probably in the 30-35 million dollar price range right now with the way prices have gone up. I guess we will have to wait and see down the road what they would do. Im wondering if the zoning board would even approve that for area thats talked about due to noise. They have had complaints in the past about the noise at GA.... would have to be a sand filled beast if it were a B&M.

B&M's are also more expensive than Intamin's. Kondaa for example (I know not a Giga, Not even a Hyper) was under $26m

For sure, a giga would help significantly. It makes sense for the park but as we've all talked about - money. I'd love for them to invest in the giga, obviously. Just not hoping too hard for it to become a reality.

All three of those coasters make sense actually. But there would have to be a lot of removals for them to happen.

As for the camp cartoon retheme I agree but would rather see an entire overhaul of Kidzopolis. Take the damn tent down, take the stage down. Put in a restaurant with indoor seating to cool down in. Redo the restrooms. Take out the car ride, put in a family coaster. Retheme it all to the Looney Tunes. Repaint it all & really make the area nice. But hell, this is gonna be as much as the Giga ;D

Going back to our conversation from August. What if two of those options were combined into one? I'm of course am talking about mashing the giga and single rail together. Just let Eagle ride out whatever amount of serviceable life it has left, and when the time comes, tear it down for an RMC t-rex giga to take its place.

I've ridden Jersey Devil and No thanks. The feet placements are bad in my opinion.

Instead let GCI add titan track and new trains


And about the screamscape rumor of an Intamin Giga or B&M Dive;

If the New CEO decided to go Cedar Fair and leave some parks with just general improvements, That would lead to bigger rides at less parks than more rides at all parks
