    This is for all things related to amusement parks in the Cedar Fair chain, excluding Cedar Point, which already has a thread.
    Today, the Cedar Fair parks have announced an entire slate of new attractions for 2017. The list of new attractions at each park is below.

    California's Great America @CAGreatAmerica
    • Patriot (The park's Vortex stand-up coaster will be converted into a floorless coaster)
    Carowinds @Carowinds
    • The New County Fair, featuring 4 new rides: Electro-Spin, Zephyr, Rock n' Roller, and Do-Si-Do
    Dorney Park @DorneyParkPR
    • Two flat rides: Dodgem and Kaliedoscope and a new show, Cirque Imagine
    Kings Island @KingsIslandPR
    • Mystic Timbers, a GCI wooden coaster
    Knott's Berry Farm @knotts
    • Knott's Soak City is receiving two new water slides
    Valleyfair @ValleyfairMN
    • Northstar, a 230ft Starflyer
    Worlds of Fun @worldsoffun
    • Two new flat rides called Falcon's Flight and Mustang Runner and a redesigned front entrance.

    Just wanted for everybody be in the loop about other park's future additions.

    I was tired last night and couldn't figure out how to toggle it. It was very frustrating.

    So, I looked in the general information and you had this wonderful explanation to set spoilers. So, I updated and appreciate your help. Although, I felt pretty stupid when I saw that you had that explanation right there in front of me.

    Hi, I rode it Thursday night 8 times during the first rider auction. First things first, the ride is amazing. It wastes no speed and hits with tons of positive and negative Gs. It's like the Maverick of wooden coasters; it's the anti Son of Beast.

    The Shed (heavy spoilers)


    I hope this explains what's inside the shed. It's much better to see it in person than to read about it.

    (light spoilers/general review of Shed parts)


    This ending is way better than the ending to Adventure Express.

    Thanks for a great review. I am glad to hear that you thought it better than Adv Express. That ride has the most disappointing ending of any ride that I have experienced. I am looking forward to Mystic Timbers (for the coaster itself more so than the Shed) and hope to ride it in May.

    I like the comment "anti-SOB". SOB wasted so much speed and opportunity. Stupid coaster who beat me to nearly to death.

    I think it's safe to say that any ending for a ride is better than Adventure Express.

    "YOOOOUUUU WILLLL PAYYYYYYYY!!" "Thanks for riding! Exit to your right and gather all of your personal belongings!"

    Melt at Cedar Point opened today. If you've never been and have the chance GO! It's the best food on property now. Plus it's a full scale, full service restaurant with tons of craft beer and mixed drinks! I will be at that bar!

    We have like three or four different grilled cheese places around Orlando now, they're really becoming a thing.
