It lists Morey's Piers GCI coaster as being for 2013. Last I heard there was not a confirmed time frame for this. Has something changed?

As I mentioned when I saw this come up on FB, disappointed that we're getting 2 new "classic wooden coasters" in the US next year, and the article only mentions one of them. White Lightning is going in to Fun Spot Orlando, a mile or so from USF/IoA, and is going to be a really fun ride.

The new "megapark" in Orlando will likely never come to fruition, but the family-owned Fun Spot parks are growing rapidly, and filling the niche for night-time amusements (as opposed to the big THEMERS operating now at Busch, Disney and Universal).

I'm getting worse. I didn't see that mentioned at all in the article.

I bet it was omitted after it was pointed out that it was a mistake.
