Steel Vengance is gonna be by far the best new ride of the 2018 season.

Great to hear Canadas Wonderland adding more great rides. Still wish they would add a really good inverting coaster soon. Maybe Cedar Fairs next RMC project will be Wildbeast. Who knows.

Looks like Carowinds is taking a break from adding major new rides. Its always good seeing something new added to improve the park experience.

I think Twisted Timbers is gonna be better than Wicked Cyclone. It will be more about the airtime than the overall layout.

I think its gonna be better than Six Flags version, other than what Great Adventure is getting next year.

Its unclear what Worlds of Fun is exactly getting.

It looks as it will probably be the best eurofighter coaster on earth.

I think that will be better than Fiesta Texases version.

I think this is one of the most impressive years to day for CF. All the rides and additions feel very thought out and fitting for the parks.

it is surprising that Cedar Fair CEO Matt Ouimet will be Stepping down at the end of the year. Richard Zimmerman will be promoted form President to CEO.

I know little about Zimmerman outside of the article saying he ran Kinds Dominion. he certainly doesn't seem to have the background that Ouimet has. but then Who though Ouimet would stand a chance of doing as well as former CEO Dick Kinzel.

Got the share link to work.

This is one of the few additions I'm really excited about. Really good layout.

I'm a bit torn. I personally wouldn't have minded trying the attraction if I visited. but it's more that they have nothing announced to replace it.

At least Kings Island still has theirs. I never bothered riding it since I have ridden quite a few boomerangs, along with Dejavu. Besides, Vodoo is a much better ride.

I'm sure it is. Question is what will happen to the coaster after it comes down.

Rebel Yell will be renamed to Racer 75. It may sound a bit cheesy, but it does kinda make sense why since there is an inside joke to this name.

Iím sure there will still be a Rebel Yell to this ride, but from anyone who despises the new name.

This whole political correct BS is starting to drive me insane. It's not in any way offensive and those who find it that way need to get a life. The new name is just stooped.

Yeah I dont like the new name that much. The only excuse they gave is because its a reference to the first ACE event ever held.

You can thank those liberals for the name change. I think there just way too ashamed of themselves from what they have been doing over the past year, especially from November of 2016.

that makes even less sense. I figured they are using 75 since it opened in 1975.

I could go into more detail what I am exactly talking about, but thatís going into political territory. I agree this political correctness has gone way out of hand(you can thank those leftists who are freaking the hell out). ;)

Sadly Politics have wormed its way into everything. But I agree best to avoid it in general park talk.

There are times where re-branding can be a good thing but if they are going to rename a coaster they should give it something with a bit more power.
