Where on Darien Lake's lot were the pieces? From the pictures, it just looks like in some lot near some residental rural houses.
It's doubtful it'll be ready for 2006 just because of the time it takes to clear the land, lay the footers & construct the coaster. Not to mention the town-of-Darien has to approve this as well (as if it'd be rejected... they're all probably saying "finally").
Will the same trains ship, or will Six Flags invest in new ones? Ashame if it's going to be the same bumpy ride that everyone says it is.
Sure'd be nice if they swapped floorless trains instead! :) ;)
I can't believe this, just this morining I was all talk of no matter what this year or next season were not going to be getting this ride. And later on someone post's picture proof of it being on site. Im speechless, yet very excited deep down, to bad its more than likley not going to be ready for this year so it seems, a new slide and coaster would be a great way to kick off this season.

If I ever get to Darien Lake and this is erected, it'll be the 3rd location I've ridden it in, starting at Great Adventure. I didn't find it boring, I just hated the earpads, which are much worse than the SLCs or Boomerangs.
All these ride relocations though don't meet the m.o. of the new management team. Except for the Shoot-the-Chutes in storage at Great Escape, they're all rides (Serial Thriller, Ultra Twister, B:TE) which attract the undersirable-to-them teen demographic. I'm suprised that they didn't stop the construction of Acrophobia half-way through.
