With the new survey containing two examples of lands the park is thinking about creating, I decided to make a quick mock-up of an Aviation Village concept:
I'm predicting this area is going to be the long awaited renovation of Crossroads, so I think Yo-Yo is on the chopping block along with Southern Star. Dodg'ems, I could see moving.
I predict the new rides will come from Zamperla, since Cedar Fair consistently works with them, and they have several rides fitting this aviation theme.1. Zamperla Super Air Race-
I don't have a name in mind (if I had to guess, they'd take a name from another Cedar Fair flat like Delirium), but this fits with the "Dieselpunk" theme they suggest in the concept description. 2. Zamperla Kite Flyer-
I think this fits with the Wright Brothers aspect of the theme, though it's a bit redundant with Kiddy Hawk, but it kind of mimics the position of the actual plane
. They could name it "Wright Flight". Alternatively, I could see them going for the slightly larger Giant Sky Chaser
model just to add some capacity.3. Zamperla Magic Bikes-
This fits with the DaVinci aspect, as it kind of resembles his flying machine.
I could see it replacing Yo Yo without having to adjust the size of the ride pad.4. Renovated Carowinds Theater-
I think Plants vs. Zombies is also a goner, and the rumor from Screamscape about the park transforming it into the main performance theater may hold some weight. I predict they'll renovate the exterior to look like an airplane hangar to fit with the area, like Soarin' at DCA. However, the inside will look like a standard theater.5. Wings Restaurant-
I think the new area will bring another restaurant with indoor seating. I don't know if the park still has the props from Wings before it was turned into Blue Ridge Country Kitchen, but this would be a great place to bring them back. The exterior could resemble a hangar like Smokejumpers at DCA:6. Afterburn-
This is what makes me think Aviation Village is a better option. Afterburn doesn't currently have an area that compliments it, and it fits the vague "post war era" in the description.
