It would be cool if the freespin was going through different levels of a temple and enclosed, with walls of spikes at each raven turn.

i doubt they'd retheme I 305, but i just hope they dont tear down avalanche. it was my 1st coaster as a kid before i actually did what some would call my 1st real coaster flight if fear.

They can paint up an s&s free spin as much as they want but it is still an s&s free spin. This is a glorified, not even good flat ride(coaster) that is over before you get comfortable with it whipping you around in its terrible restraints. obviously, imo, these rides are a waste of money. batman at SFFT typically has no line and people leave riding it disappointed. Removing Volcano was a heart breaker, but using this awful ride as an excuse of a replacement is beyond me, even if they have a new ride in the works years from now. I miss Zimmerman running PKD. I believe their big announcement will be them retheming the entire Congo area to a Mayan area..

I mean, if this is how you feel about a freespin, then I can’t imagine you particularly liked Crypt, which is what this ride actually replaced.

it is sad that volcano got torn down, but given it was a prototype coaster (similar to hypersonic XLC) it will eventually need new parts made for it, and said parts will most likely be very expensive, and when the park feels that it may be to much they must say goodbye to it. sadly the crypt was a true maintenance nightmare from what we know so they decided to axe it. the 4 D free spin was said to be the replacement for the crypt so the g p (general public) will flock to that, and ensure a long life. they have not officially announced the replacement for volcano. leaked plans showed a wing coaster, but rumor mill says people are hoping for the new record breaking gerstlauer coaster to be the replacement which would be a nice enthusiast coaster. since it's record breaking the next thought would be well will it be a clone of shell raiser / takabisha with a even steeper drop, or perhaps a clone of the smiler, but more inversions on it. we won't know till the announcements come out on aug 12.

This video talks about the possibility of multiple additions to rival Busch Gardens Williamsburg's rapid growth


Funny he's going the opposite of where he was last year saying that KD wasn't getting a free spin. Also expecting KD to get "rapid growth" when they've failed with major additions twice since Cedar Fair acquired them is beyond naive, it's borderline stupid.

i think busch gardens just needs a nice wing coaster to replace tempesto. i love tempesto , but getting a ride on it is a nightmare given low capacity, but that's like asking six flags to give a rats butt about six flags america, or giving some love to michigan adventure, valley fair, or worlds of fun. you can dream, but that's about all you can do.
