Not really 2016 but here is my prediction/wishlist for 2017:
In 2017, along with the possible Vortex conversion, my prediction for 2017 is a sizeable Planet Snoopy expansion as a "punch-back" to Over Georgia's DC kids area. The first thing I'd like to see is a Vekoma family boomerang (or one from Gerstlauer like Rewind Racers. Believe it or not, Vekoma can actually make some decent coasters. I feel like this would be a great family addition because it carries the same height restriction as Woodstock Express and it would cost around $4.6 million. Also, I think if Vekoma came in and did this, they could give new trains to Flying Ace (lapbar-only like Freedom Flyer at Fun Spot) and possibly Goldrusher to get the height requirement back down. But I think lapbars might raise the height restriction on Flying Ace, so the other option could be giving it vests like Fly the Great Nor'easter. The other three rides I'd like to see are Linus' Launcher, Snoopy's Space Buggies, and Lucy's Tugboat. If the boomerang isn't plausible, a splash battle would be another GREAT addition. And like I've mentioned several times before, I'd like to see Snoopy's Junction extended so that it envelopes Planet Snoopy.
