Since the announcement of California`s Great America land being sold, I think there will be some well deserved relocations. I am going to predict some locations. They are parks that could use something.

Dorney Park= Railblazer
Michigan`s Adventure= Flight Deck
World`s of Fun= Patriot(of course change the name)
Cedar Point= Ghost striker
Canada`s Wonderland= Grizzly
Maybe King`s Island can grab Demon.

What does everyone think? Thank you.

I expect Gold Stiker, Grizzly, Patriot, Flight Deck, and Demon will close and be demolished with the park. All of the above are custom-built for the site. Demon, Flight Deck, and Patriot are 30+ years old.

Railblazer will likely find a new home. The Arrow Mouse and Miler kiddie coaster may end up somewhere else as well.

Canada's Wonderland won't get Grizzly unless they use it for parts for Wilde Beast since both have similar layout. Demon will most likely be scrapped because its at least 46 years old (47 in 2023) and plus Arrow Dynamics is gone. Pyscho Mouse can probably go to anothe rpark within or out of Cedar Fair and I can see Railblazer being relocated. But the rest would probably be scrapped. Gold Striker's trains would most likely be reused on another GCI similar to how InVadr reused trains from the now defunct Gwazi roller coaster.

Any update?

The relocation of roller coasters involves dismantling, transporting, and reassembling rides to new locations. This process requires meticulous planning, specialized equipment, and skilled labor to ensure safety and integrity. Factors like terrain, regulations, and infrastructure must be considered to facilitate smooth relocation and minimize disruptions to operations.

These predictions are interesting, considering the typical practice of Cedar Fair in Drift Hunters relocating rides to different parks within their chain.
