The most important clue to what is going on is Tony saying you won't want to miss the 2015 Winter Chill Out during the 2014 event.

I wouldn't consider that an actual clue. The clue he did give, close to when he said that, was that "roller coasters are in our D.N.A." And, he didn't just say "dna" either, he said D, then N, then A, with pausing in-between and bobbing forward on each letter. I still speculate that as some dual-helix coaster thing.

If I knew they were going to do something great, I would be more inclined to buy a pass now, which would pretty much guarantee me and my friends going more often, next year... Considering I am single and making about $75,000/year, I would think that they would want to keep someone like me coming to their park.

As if CP's plan to announce an attraction revolve around your desire to buy a season pass if the new attraction is "good enough" for you. Pretty egotistical of you. They are just as happy to take your money if you buy admission tickets for every trip.

Considering that families are their bread and butter, they are more concerned with having the right attractions in place to attract family groups than a single guy making 75K. Especially families making 100K or more.

I dunno, a freshly painted B&M and three brand spanking new Floorless trains? Sounds like something to see to me.

Well, Tony said that after we saw all of the Gemini midway construction, which to me is much bigger and more exciting than different colored track and new trains. If 2015 is more of a must see than last year's project, it is certainly more than just trains and paint.

Holy crap! Here we go, folks! Looks like the Rougarou conversion predictions might be right!

Might be right? Unless someone hacked the official Facebook page or you're saying this is an April Fools-esque post, it's 100% confirmed.

But what about the heartline or the financial or many other reasons we were told by the self-appointed "experts" that we were crazy for saying it could be done? Lol. I guess Cedar Point and B&M forgot to listen to you.

Must say I'm disappointed. This theme would've looked a HELL of a lot better on a brand new spanking coaster. Love the sounds, love the logo, love the sound effects, but its still the same boring coaster.

But hey, I don't pay the bills, do I?

The sad part? I bet you they market this as a brand new coaster and completely fool the general public into thinking this is something new and exciting.

Taking the easy way out, Roller Coaster Capital of the World....let us now bow down and show respect to the parks that actually want to make a statement with their lineups.

Nah..I'll admit I was wrong, I was skeptical the whole time. I'm impressed with this..I never thought it would happen nor a reason why they would. This makes me happy though, so yeah, obviously they're not done either..I bet more announcements are yet to come
