Cedar Fair L.P.
Park News - (5/19/15) A Screamscape source has confirmed that GCI has been working on Timber Wolf, re-tracking approximately the first third of the ride, from the first drop through to the high speed curve. If they can stay on schedule they hope to reopen the coaster as early as May 30th. The plan is to try and re-track the rest of the ride over the next two years, to be completed by Summer 2017 if all goes well.
Meanwhile details of a new haunt have been leaked to us, to be called Blood on the Bayou. It is said that the new haunt will offer up some brand new special effects never seen before at Worlds of Fun.

(3/27/15) Pictures from an off-season tour of Worlds of Fun can be found here, showing off various projects and rides being updated, worked on... or even removed in the case of the old Octopus ride, who's cars and parts will be sent to Valleyfair to help maintain that park's version of the ride.
