    Where have you heard this rumor. Outside of this thread I haven't heard a thing about Kanonen coming to WOF and the park is practically in my backyard.

    I've heard this rumor through another forum site. the teaser from KD with the 816 (area code for KC) nobody is really talking about it, and it doesn't make sense for CGA and Knott's getting coasters and WOF is a dark horse for a new coaster. obviously CGA is getting something and there is the two RMC's so the fourth is still a mystery. with CGA getting the "new and innovative ride" (assuming from the stakes seen that it's an RMC single rail "SR1") and the other two being the RMC's it only makes sense that the renewed relation could be Intamin with Kanonen going to WOF (it is sold after all, and CF has been Europe ride shopping as well).
    here is the video i'm referencing:

    IMG_7496.PNG Seems like a stretch to me. I guess we'll find out next month.

    But why would KD be teasing an attraction at a different park? Sure, both are owned by CF, but that connection to the WoF theory just seems like too much of a stretch.

    They're not going to promote another park's addition. Marketing resources for each park will have their own budgets, so they wouldn't spend their restricted capital on another park's investment, they have their own marketing for that.

    So... It's been a while since this was talked about. Is Kanonen still on Liseberg's car park in pieces? Does anyone know what is going on with it at the moment.

    Yeah, but to where? By now I'd have expected @roomraider to have specified which park, location within the park, which rides it replaces (and where they go), its new name and themeing, and the shoe sizes of the first few guys to be assigned to ride op it.

    Shush the both of you. :p

    I am keeping a close eye on where I believe it may end up but there is nothing at all yet. Which leads me to believe maybe its not going there at all. But right now it seems to have vanished along with the Hopi Hari Intamin and the Vinpearl Firestorm. They're out there somewhere.

    There's hope left for Kanonen.

    Has space world closed yet? Because their Stealth clone "Zaturn" is also up for sale on Interlink's website.

    Except it isn't although its supposed to be. Theres a long long history with this ride and its numerous owners and court cases about who owns it. From what I can gather half of it was shipped to Malaysia before someone kicked off and sued again claiming the person who sold it to Malaysia didnt have the right to sell it. And now half of it is still in Brazil. Either way none of it has shown up at MAPS yet.

    It closes on the 31st.

    Is that Kanonen to scale in that photo shopped photo? If it is, I could see it. Isn't Dorney park's only launched coaster Possessed?

    Yes it is to scale. The guy who made it said he put measurement lines down on each screenshot and matched them.

    Yeah, I used the "ruler" function in google earth as a reference. I turned off terrain and 3d stuff so it was flat also, just to be safe. Plus if you compare the scale to the intamin impulse it looks just about right

    ^Do you genuinely believe that it is going here? I mean, I would have thought Cedar Fair would install something brand new, not some relocated. But then again, it is Dorney. I I doubt Cedar Fair would even give Michigan's Adventure a used Vekoma SLC. Oh wait... it did? Oh...
