Show Notes

There were two big announcements in the amusement industry this week and we talk about them both! First up, Cedar Point has announced that "Mean Streak" will "get the axe" later this fall. What does this mean and who is the "old coot" in the teaser video?

We also talk about the Triple Tower at Hersheypark. CoasterBoys aren't very excited about this one... even going so far as to say they're more excited about the new Chick-fil-a Restaurant being installed in 2017. Why is this?

We also have an interview with Adam House from Great Coasters International minutes after the announcement of "Mystic Timbers" at Kings Island. We'll talk with him about what it's like to design a roller coaster for your his home park

Plus, Mr. Shapiro is back with ideas on how to "monetize" Pokemon Go and... the return of LIGHTNING RODNEY!
