When Thomas Town is the biggest investment in 10 years, you know there is a problem.

I am glad they are finally putting some money into the park though.

Well at least this park isn't getting the Kentucky Kingdom treatment. Hopefully a big coaster is coming next year.

They could probably put a wild mouse on Two Face's spot. The Roadrunner Express name would work.

That's my least favorite Wild Mouse design. I'll take the Mack. I was thinking of SFKK's version too but that's up in the air.

I am thrilled to see that the park is getting something new for once. but I'm not that thrilled aver the addition in general. I thought there woudl be more rides. It's basically every other Thomas town with 3 new rides one of which is relocated from another section of the park. but every rides is a repeat. nothing is new except the themes.

I think it's limited with the direction in each axis you can apply forces for it to be a family ride so I am not surprised it's just as many rides as it. Do you remember the classic carnival? There's the boats that go in a circle, the airplanes, the cars and trucks that go in a circle with that one military cannon exception. The rides are repetitious.

Having a park that have a full collection of Hershell and mangles kiddies yes they are similar in look. many while they do go around have separate movement. but this is not the 1960's. Zamperla, moser, SBF, and others have many Kiddie and family rides that could be themed to Thomas. in fact the Thomas world has a tub boat which would open up the ability for a Zamperla Rockn' tug. but they have 2 kiddie rides that are virtual Clones of each-other.

A spinning Gordon rocking tub? I think that park is missing a tub.

Can't remember the name of teh Tug Boat. there is also a small river barge the works the Island. I have a 7 year and twin 2 year old nieces, So i have seen my fair share of Thomas. I also watched Shining Time Station when I was younger.

Moser makes a helicopter tower kiddie/family ride.

but maybe they can just remove the Loony toon town as it is and upgrade it to a National park with different rides.
