HodgePodge: Week of July 3, 2011

Cedar Point
Screamscape has pulled up some interesting rumors from Cedar Point over the last few days. According to unnamed sources, Paddlewheel Excursions may be removed at the end of the year. This would coincide with the possible addition of a Dinosaurs Alive! attraction on Millennium Force island, similar to the one installed at Kings Island for this season. As for a coaster, Screamscape reports that a B&M coaster is likely, and speculates that it might be located around the Disaster Transport area. We'll keep an eye on this.

Disney California Adventure
We've got more from Westcoaster, including a lot of general pictures of the park (which looks great)! They've got a lot of onride pictures of Goofy's Sky School, so be sure to check them out at Westcoaster.

A small boy died at Knoebels a few days ago. Quoting from Screamscape, “A tragedy occurred at Knoebels Crystal Pool early in the afternoon of July 6th. A young boy struck his head while jumping into the pool. Upon being rescued, guards immediately began CPR. He was then transported by ambulance to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. We are deeply saddened to report that the child has passed away. Please join the Knoebel families in placing the childs family and friends in your prayers.”

Knotts Berry Farm
Westcoaster was out at Knott's a few days ago, where they got a look at the progress on Windseeker. Currently, the queue is being constructed and the carriage is being built on the tower. It looks like this one is not going to be quite the same as its cousins in the east, at least visually. Check it out here.

Six Flags Magic Mountain
Theme Park Insider posted this great video of Green Lantern this week:

Walt Disney World
MouseSteps has a Fourth of July update that you won't want to miss. The park looks great, as always, and there are also some pictures of the Fantasyland progress.
