I'm really excited, and disappointed at the same time about the new GCI edition to WOF. I'm really curious about the cost of this coaster? I feel like this was just another cheap way to add to the park not to mention we already got a ground hugging GCI right next to where it's gonna be.
However I'm stoked they're bringing this back [I loved Zambezi Zinger] but why wasn't it an RMC raptor?
When is this park gonna get a coaster that's not half A**?
I mean if they wanna draw more revenue then build something Magic Mountain or Cedar Point comparable. Another GCI just seems corner cutting to me and there's zero inversions on another GCI/ Hybrid, and the ride is slightly shorter than the original.
I gotta say I think it's a cool addition and idea, but we as kc locals, and enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for something groundbreaking for almost a decade and a half.
The coolest part of this ride is honestly the lift hill. It's another prowler literally with a Zambezi lift hill...
I called this in June...I said it's gonna be a Zambezi remake, but was so stoked on an RMC Raptor with possible inversions. It didn't have to be another starter for kids coaster you have the prowler right next door for that.
We need an Intamin, dive or RMC you cheap mofos... lol...the park will still be boring until you spend some real money.
Change my mind?
If I can make another prediction...the park will bring back the orient express in the next decade and it will probably be a Raptor. If this happened that be AWESOME but it would be even cooler if it was an Intamin launch or an RMC Hybrid.
Yo WOF Cedar Fair quit being cheap A**es and give this gorgeous park something ground/record breaking, and bada**.
It will attract more people, revenue, and enthusiasts from all over world here. We always get something everyone else already has, and isn't as cool.
I get that gas, wood, and steel are expensive BUT COME ON YOU GOTTA SPEND MONEY TO MAKE MONEY. No one cares about the Zinger except the locals.
Please rebuild the Orient Express but make it ground breaking long, and not cheap. Pay homage by interlocking the loops...but make it long with a different layout... make it tall, and fast AF will multiple inversions.
But something tells me it will be another 10 years and they'll find a way to make something cheap.
