    <BR>
    <BR>Also, some fo CP's coasters have NOT been record breakers. IE
    <BR>
    <BR>Magnum (NOT the first 200fter, that was Moonsault Scramble in Japan)
    <BR>Blue Streak
    <BR>Disaster Transport
    <BR>Iron Dragon
    <BR>Mine Train

    I really like the Boardwalk themed area rumor that keeps getting mentioned. It sounds pretty cool, and would fit into the mentioned area very well.

    Along with the boardwalk area, I think CP shoud ask CCI or CGI to reconstruct the CP Cyclone coaster from many years ago. I believe this was one of Harry Traver's designs, so its guaranteed to be "twisted." Harry Traver's designs are truly twisted, but I'm sure modern engineering techniques can make the ride much smoother than the originals. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">o)

    <BR>Smoothness wasn't really the problem with the Traver rides. The problem was one of maintaince. They litterally shook themselves to peices. The CP Cyclone was actually a Prior and Church ride, Traver only handled construction, as he did on Rye's Aeroplane, Riverview's Bobs, and Blackpool's Grand National. Sadly, the very last coaster of Travers went under recently, the Texas Tornado at Frontierland in England, which closed 2 years ago. I beleive that ride is currently for sale, but is in very poor shape.

    I'd love to see the CP Cyclone rebuilt, trouble is two things: 1) Cedar Fair puts those <i>unneeded</i> safety items on all the trains, meaning head-rests, seat-dividers, and ratchet-laps, and 2) Cedar Fair hasn't done too good a job taking care of the wood coasters from what I've heard. Mean Streak is a good example, not to mention overbraked, although its a little better this year than in years past.

    <BR>In any case I feel they need
    <BR>
    <BR>Huss Frisbee (since we already have Ocean Motion, call this "Windstorm")
    <BR>
    <BR>A Premier Liquid Coaster (name it the Cedar Creak Mill Race...cause I can't think of a good name) <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif"> Hey its been awhile since they put in a new water ride.
    <BR>
    <BR>Other good choices would be:
    <BR>
    <BR>Schwarzkopf Triple Looper (but I doubt they'd put one of these in on account of gravity)
    <BR>
    <BR>Mack Euro-Mir
    <BR>
    <BR>In any case it will all depend on what CP feels will bring the best ROI (return on investment)
