    I guess I just don't think that changing the name and a bit of work would have drawn the interest that the change to WC got. It really is a special ride and the lines have shown their ROI to be pretty good so far.

    The original Cyclone was a great coaster. The changed drop poor maintenance turned it into a piece of crap. The PTC trains were beating the coaster up the Morgans may have been a bit uncomfortable but they rain very well on the complex layout. I think it RMC had Come in finished retacking the coaster with topper track, returned the original drop, re-profiled the rough and weak sections. The park woudl have still had bragging rights to 2 wood coasters and yes with teh right marketing drawn plenty of attention to the rehab. The majority of SFNE customers are locals anyways.

    Wouldn't raptor track make more sense at a small park? Seems like Knotts might need something with better capacity.

    I know the secret info. This is obviously Quassy 2018 /s

    Yeah IDK I was just going off of what other people were saying. The area Knotts has free is very limited, plus they just removed their boomerang.
