A ground up RMC would be an awesome addition to Lagoon.

I have a couple of friends who think the past is pointless and want to get rid of it. The best explanation I've ever found is "Just because old castles in europe are starting to get old and the steps might be less technologically advanced when compared to elevators you don't just rip down the castle and replace it with a new modern hotel. You don't just throw away history like that."

I think a new woodie in 2021 is an obvious choice. Roller Coaster is the single best investment and most important ride in the history of the park. They should honor it with a sibling for the next 100 years.
Rename Roller Coaster to 'Lagoon's Classic Roller Coaster'
  • A distinct name
  • Adjective + Roller Coaster format everybody uses (white roller coaster, wooden roller coaster, etc.)
  • Describes the ride
  • Includes the current name

Your friends kind of thinking is dangerous. History is awesome and much be preserved.

Yes it would. I think a GCI woodie.

Over my dead body.

I have no problem if Lagoon wants to build a ground-up RMC (although I'd hope they'd opt for a bespoke GCI, but I get that hybrids are all the rage now), but they can keep their damn dirty hands off of Roller Coaster.

I doubt they could do anything with it to make it worth the effort. It would be better to start from scratch.

I agree. Anything they did do to it would pretty much be a ground up ride anyways as the lift is under 100 feet so they would need to add a lot of height to the lift and I agree it just wouldn't be worth it.

I do have a pretty cool concept that GCI could do to modify Roller Coaster but it is not finished yet.

I think a GCI layout like Mystic Timbers would be great at Lagoon.

It's way too much cost and not worth the return on the investment. Getting new trains and just rebuilding track sections is all it needs. Rmc just needs to build a new coaster for lagoon, would love to have another Woody.
