In 2016 the hotel fastrack had about 10 attractions on it and it was for big new rides like Smiler/ Galactica as well :/

Re: Flamingo Land

They'll just want to be promoting their new ride, I get it all the time from them on the radio. It'll be back to normal in a couple years.

Re: SW9

It almost definitely won't be in 2020, that's only 2 years after Wicker Man. Major coasters are opened roughly every 4 years ('94, '98, '02, '06 '10, '13, '18) so logic would dictate that the next major coaster will arrive in 2022.
