A few days ago I was so happy to see that Screamscape posted a new rumor that Cedar Point MIGHT add two Coasters in 2013 - A Big Coaster addition and now maybe a Kiddie/Family Coaster. I was also thinking this. Originally I thought Cedar Point might add in a Kiddie Coaster in 2010 but it didn't happen. So I thought 2011, but it didn't happen. Finally I was sure they will get a Kiddie Coaster in 2012, but they did not announce one. Now its good news that there is a chance that CP could possibly get a Kiddie Coaster in 2013. It also got me thinking what else CP could get in 2013.
For a location, I believe Cedar Point would add a Kiddie Coaster in the new Planet Snoopy section of the park. The new family section of the park opened a few years ago, and every time I visit CP, Planet Snoopy is dead and has no little kids in it. While, on the other side of the park, Camp Snoopy, is filled with children. If CP opens a Kiddie Coaster in Planet Snoopy, it could draw more families there.
For the Kiddie Coaster type, I would like to see a E&F Miler Coaster or a Zierer Coaster. in my opinion Miler and Zierer make the best Kiddie Coasters.
For Cedar Points other Coaster, I would love to see another Intamin, but that probably will not happen. CP has a lot of problems with Intamin over the years. They had problems with Maverick, Top Thrill Dragster, Wicked Twister, and Shoot the Rapids. Also they got a lot of Intamin Coasters over all. CP has a kiddie coaster, Jr. Gemini, a Blitz Coaster - Maverick, a Impulse Coaster - Wicked Twister, a Strata Coaster - Top-Thrill Dragster, a bobsled - Disaster Transport, and a Giga Coaster - Millennium Force. That leads Cedar Point to get a Pre-Fab Wooden Coaster (which will be AMAZING), a mega/mega-lite Coaster, Surf-Rider, a Zac-Spin, or a new Model by Intamin. But, I don't think they will receive an Intamin AG Coaster in 2013. They had a bad past with them, plus they already have a lot of them in the Park.
But, most rumors are pointing to a B&M Coaster. CP only has two B&M Coasters: a Stand Up - Mantis, and an Inverted - Raptor. A Wing Rider, Diving Coaster, Flying Coaster, Floorless Coaster, or even a Giga/Hyper Coaster could enter the Park. Since the Wing Riders have made such a big impact in the industry, CP might receive one in 2013. Personally, I would love to see one, but I also would love to see the Worlds Tallest Dive Coaster or Flying Coaster over looking Lake Erie. Maybe even CP might receive another Giga Coaster form B&M???
I would also love to see another Wooden Coaster at Cedar Point. They have two current woodies - Mean Streak and Blue Streak. Mean Streak has a great layout, but due to its rough, horrible ride experience, it is one of the most unpopular Wooden Coasters. (But, I would hate to see it leave CP). Blue Streak, there other is a great old fashioned Woodie, is a great Coaster. It is old, but smooth, has airtime, and is a great classic ride. I would like to see a GCII Wooden Coaster. One would fit great into the Park and would look great along the waters of Lake Erie. A modern Gravity Group Coaster would be nice, but I would love to see an Intamin Pre-fab. They are smooth, great, and provides some of the best Airtime ever. At Coaster Mania, Mr. Kinzel hinted he loved El Toro, but I sadly, I don't think they will be receiving one.
It is too early to tell what exact Coaster(s) Cedar Point will receive in 2013. There last Coaster addition was 5 years ago, and they are do for another one. What ever Cedar Point will receive in 2013, I am sure it will please everyone!
A few days ago there was a piece of Green B&M Track spotted, near the manufacturing plant. A few pictures of it can be found over at Screamscape. Rumor has it it is for a brand new Wing Coaster. This confirms that there will be at least 1 Wing Coaster in 2013. I am not shocked that more Winged Coasters will be produced. Over the last few years they have became extremely popular.
As for what park it will be placed, I narrowed it down to two parks that I think it may go to - Either Cedar Point or Six Flags Great Adventure. Cedar Point NEEDS a new Coaster, so it would fit perfectly into the park, along the water front. It also fits into the Rumor that Cedar Point will get a new B&M Coaster in 2013 (Though, I would love to see a new Intamin Coaster, but that probably wont happen. Due to all the complications they had with Maverick, Shoot The Rapids, Top Thrill Dragster and more.)
It also would fit into Six Flags Great Adventure. They are obsessed with B&M Coasters (holding the record for most B&M Coasters at one park - 5). This also fits into the rumor the parks Bizarro might be replaced with a new Wing Coaster. Or the Winged Coaster could be just added, not replacing any Coasters (So then SFGA will finally be at 14 Coasters!) Also it seems that X-Flight at Six Flags Great America will be a huge success, and Six Flags will want more of them at there parks. But, If SFGA does not get a Winged Coaster, I think it will get a Drop Tower in Movietown in 2013.
This Winged Coaster could also go to any other park, in America, Europe or someplace else. Maybe we will see a B&M Winged Coaster at Cedar Point, Six Flags Great Adventure and many more Amusement Parks around the world in 2013!
