  1. I don't think it depends on the number of coasters, but more about 'is it a full day?' SW and DW when they had 1 or 2 coasters were still full days out with all the other things they had. MW was kind of an all day thing if you went on everything twice. I mean neck WnW does quite well for itself with one coaster.
  2. That's one of the hazards of running a park year round, you don't get a big off season to work on this stuff.
  3. Storm is somehow less than the sum of its parts. The coaster portion is intimidating, but actually quite weak. The boat ride element doesn't play into things at all really, the splash down is hidden, and the dark ride happens after the point where people care. It's not a bad ride, it just doesn't live up to it's own potential. The themeing is effective, but it's themed to somewhere unpleasant to be. I don't think it deserves hate as such, but it's hard to bestow much love on it either.
  4. Pretty much all the coasters in the major parks are unique? Even those that aren't like GL or ST have something unique or different about them. The only straight up off the shelf coasters are the kiddie coasters.
  5. Custom stuff can be awesome, but it can also be a miss. I mean MDMC verses a standard Vekoma Motorbike coaster? Say no more. I think that the ride is obscure enough that it's 'As good as' a custom ride in Australia, and frankly if I were DW I'd want something I knew damn well was going to be a hit, not something that you couldn't verify until after it opened. I'd probably also ask MACk about turning the unused block brake into an airtime hill or two but what do I know.
  6. I think with something like an upgrade it's not as simple as 'Do it in winter'. If the boats aren't available, you can't do it till later. Not saying that's why the timing is what it is, but just that there's more than meets the eye. The Storm closure has always been silly though, fingers crossed that does change this year. Having your most popular water ride closed in summer is no good.
  7. I mean true, but that also isn't a sign that it's currently in decline either. SW seems to have leveled off somewhat, and you'd think when the new rides eventually reopen you'll be looking at a park that has improved since say 2018.
  8. I think its based on which is your favorite
  9. I think the hot racer is by far the better move, despite the fact it will probably be a shorter ride (lifthills and all). Disclaimer that I haven't ridden one, but nearly all of them have a large part of the population that find them uncomfortable to ride, where I just don't think Intamin will have that problem.
  10. Theres a real difference in quality between a travelling ronald busink wheel and a legit permanent install observation wheel
  11. Some custom Vekoma sit down thing maybe?
