Yeah I think your right, Its seems shorter and as though it doesn't move as close to vertical as it used to. (although it never was vertical) I don't know why but even with this program I felt I was developing a headache afterwards, but I used to ride it at least 3 times a visit without a problem......

I don't think Knott's is going to help keep them apart much... see what Paramount did:

They could........ but it would be severly inpractical. Sadly, They would have to get passed A LOT of new attractions including: Celebration Swings, probably Survivor: The ride, Psycho Mouse, Thunder Raceway, and the whole waterpark (which are in the way of the old route).

Can't wait to check it olut for myself! I must say the whole just Great America thing makes me feel a little more at home, less of a big corporation feel...

did they do anything with Vortex?... it was just as bad as Invertigo last year.

^ Someone said, I'm not sure where, it was to make Gilroy better known, but I don't see how this helps if everywhere they say "Formerly Bonfante Gardens"...

Ugh Knott's Great America sounds horrible! Its not like it would change how I call the park, whats wrong with just Great America? (I've heard of the legal issues but why then are they allowed to have Great America on the website, for so long, etc.) It makes no sense to put Knotts on...

Ok I noticed they did clean Invertigos line a little during the 06 season but it still needs work! If I were Cedar Fair I'd clean up Vortex and Invertigo:

All I can say is that the decisions Cedar Fair makes for the park are probably going to depend on SF Discovery Kingdom and how they can attract more visitors to come to Great America for a different experience than Six Flags. (I believe a main factor has to be the large kid friendly attraction as we...
