Besides Valravn(?) What Else for 2016?

I like Breakwater Cafe, but man is it way, way out there at the top of the peninsula. It is by far the hardest restaurant to reach if you don't happen to be staying at Sandcastle or Lighthouse Point.

To me, saying a Margaritaville-type restaurant and Bay Harbor are both "nice seafood restaurant/bar[s]" and thus equivalent is like saying Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Doctor Who are both nice science fiction shows and thus equivalent. They're different critters.

And I'm not discounting your opinion. I personally don't eat seafood and I don't consider Margaritaville to be a seafood restaurant. But that's just my definition. That being said, I enjoyed the one at Universal Orlando Resort.

The Flamingo Las Vegas was the first Margaritaville I've been to. I fell in love ever since.

If they were to put in a Margaritaville, in the front of the park in place of Hurricane Hannah's would be ideal location. It could have access from both inside and outside of the park for late night service and the Shuttle already stops there for returning guests to their vehicles or hotel.

Enough with the Jimmy Buffet earworms already!

A Margaritaville would be a great addition, but I think it will go best where Famous Dave's is. I've imagined that entire area at the north end of the marina transforming into a bustling nightclub type atmosphere (kind of like Pleasure Island) with maybe a little boutique hotel were the dorms are, but right along the water's edge. The first floor can include shops/restaurants that exit to a wooden boardwalk which connects to the floating docks, the second and third levels can be parking levels, and forth and fifth can be hotel rooms, and maybe a sixth floor with some luxury condos. And throw in a rooftop bar and pool to finish it off. And maybe a Planet Hollywood where the HR building is.

Famous Dave's is incredibly popular and has no reason to change formats.

Planet Hollywood? That chain has been bankrupt more times than LeBron James has returned with the Cavs and barely has any locations left open.

I'm all for the point getting some nightclub/nightlife style entertainment for guests. They already have facilities available that could easily transform into this type of venue that aren't being used at night.

Planet Hollywood still exists? That's news to me.

Not only does it exist, there are seven restaurants still in operation. Plus the Caesars-owned casino. Who knew?

Terribly run hotel, with super small pools, too. I stayed there for a week 2 years ago, and I will never return.

CW is getting some nice improvements this year. I would love to see something like their new Skyhawk ride to come to CP in the near future.

Can't be too sure exactly what the Skyhawk at CW will be like. No real information or animated povs anywhere other than the cartoon image that you can't even tell what it is on their website.

Have they been announcing actual manufacturers and model names for any of the 2016 announcements? That seems to be missing.

SkyHawk is a Gerstlauer Sky Roller:

Eagles, I'd assume, are Larson Flying Scooters.

Right, the eagles are pretty obvious as that's what they've been going with lately. :)

Looks like an ugly RCT3 flat ride from an amusement park, and it's loud. The ride experience however, looks pretty cool. When a flat ride does well in a Cedar Fair park, they usually bring it to their other ones as well. This may be a test to see if it will work well in their other parks. Just like the eagles, wind seekers, slingshots, giant frisbees, etc.

When's the last time they've bought a ride from Huss, though? Assuming, of course, that's who is making KD's Delirium.

I saw that it was Mondial making the KD frisbee ride.
