What part of the park is Reflection Lake in????
Its great to see that they are getting a new coaster, but what is going to take so long to get it up and running when you could build year-round in CA without the hardships that northern parks have to deal with??

Reflection Lake is between the former location of the Church of Reflections and the carousel. I think they do a light and water show there that I have never paid attention to.

I figured something was up when they moved the church outside the park.....

I guess this means that Kingdom of the Dinosaurs will live another year. *sigh*

I Think it will be themed to the Wild West, with it being in Ghost Town and having the name "Silver Bullet". But then again Cedar Fair is not much for theming...

I'm glad to see that Knott's is really stepping up its thrill rides. Xcelerator and Ghostrider are really cool, and this will most certainly be a great addition to the park. I can't wait to see what Silver Bullet will look like!
