2002 Addition For Waldameer

Heres News From A Local News Station:

WALDAMEER NEW COASTER ON DELAY
HOPES FOR A NEW ROLLER COASTER AT WALDAMEER PARK COULD BE DASHED FOR ANOTHER YEAR. THE PLANS ARE READY BUT, APPARENTLY, ENVIROMENTAL CONCERNS ARE A MAJOR PROBLEM. PLANS ARE FOR THE NEW COASTER TO CROSS PENNINSULA DRIVE. BUT THERE'S A SNAG IN THE PLAN THOUGH. THE ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS PUT IT ON HOLD BECOAUS OF CONCERNS ABOUT EROSION. AT THIS POINT IT LOOKS LIKE ROLLER COASTER RIDERS WILL HAVE TO SETTLE FOR THE EXISTING COASTER NEXT YEAR. THE GOOD NEWS IS.. PARK OFFICIALS ARE PLANNING TO ADD ANOTHER NEW RIDE FOR NEXT SEASON. SO NEXT YEAR, ONE WAY OR ANOTHER WALDAMEER WILL BE BIGGER, BUT THEY JUST HAVEN'T DECIDED HOW.

That is a shame. Hasn't it been delayed for more than five years now (closer to ten)?

who would build it? I know CCI was supposed to build it before, but who got the rights to the design and whatnot? Denise or GGI?

yeah, they said that although CCI went under, a group of members from CCI still have the designs (before the announcement of GG) also, the titles supposed to be 2003

At least they are doing something. This means I'll need more than a 9 hour visit!The coaster will happen, we just have to be patient.

I was told that the coaster was on hold for some 15 years (correct me if I'm wrong!), but if the location is where I think it is, it is going to be stunning. New attraction? That means that I might just have to spend more than 9 hours there next year... and not wait until 2008!

Waldameer has been trying to build a new coaster for as long as I lived in the Erie area. Even as a kid I remember hearing that Waldameer wanted to build another coaster. It's just a shame that so many factors have delayed and held back their ability to expand.
