Jason Hammond's avatar I don't know how many cargo containers there are, but there might not even be track in them. Virtualy Anything can be shipped in them.

Boy, I'd hate to be the person to clean up all the styrofoam peanuts after they uncrate that track ;-)

CoasterDiscern's avatar I was planning on going this weekend for a day. If I do go on saturday, then I will snap some pics if I can. I'll look for anything out of the ordinary.

I'm pumped! :)


Ask not what you can do for a coaster, but what a coaster can do for you.

Well is there any track down in Ohio with a shipping sticker that says "Canaba's Wonderland"? I mean there was track there last year that had "Worlds of Fun" on it. Where are our Ohiowegians that usually go check for us?

matt.'s avatar How about Intamin hyper-rocket. Not that I think it's likely but it's not like commissioning a somewhat traditional hypercoaster experience sans lift hill+first drop would really be that much of a stretch for Intamin or CF.

^That actually sounds like it could happen having the coaster being an Intamin Mega Coaster. Superman the Ride of Steel was like 8 million and Goliath at SFOG was 20 million, so it could defiantly be a possibility. *** Edited 7/8/2007 11:04:57 PM UTC by Audioslaved***

ApolloAndy's avatar For whatever reason, none of the former Paramount Parks have hypers. I think SoB is the only coaster over 200', right?

CF has some pretty good opportunities there...

I'm guessing that CW will be receiving an Intamin hyper coaster. Morgan's are okay but an Intamin is a lot more of an intense ride, for only 2 million more. Their a lot more fun, and are more smooth. With the way CF has been getting Intamin's I couldn’t see CW getting any thing else.

I would bet that if they are building a hyper coaster it will probably be either Intamin or B&M. If this is a looping coaster, it definately will be B&M. CW is now the most attended seasonal theme park in North America. The sad thing is that their coaster lineup is not all that wonderful and capacity is an issue. So they are going to build a coaster that has huge capacity wether it is a hyper or a mega-looper from B&M. Personally, my bet is on B&M hyper much like Nitro.

Morgan hypers are 10 million and Intamin hypers are 12 million.

Prices depend on design and topography, not to mention work involved. I doubt there's a flat rate that the manufacturers go by.

I've seen costs of B&M's range anywhere from $10M - $25M.

Just depends on what the park wants, and how much they are willing to shell out.

^^ Don't forget that Steel Force is now 10 years old and SROS is 8. Those rides have been around a long time.

I can definately see CF improving CW in lots of ways, including higher quality coasters. It makes sense to heavily invest in the park, being the highest attended park in North America. It's also got TONS of room all around the park.

For 08, I hope this turns out as an Intamin or B&M hyper. Actually, as much as I love Intamin (my fav company :D) I'm kinda hoping for a B&M. And it's not ruled out because of round footers! Patriot's got round footers, so it's still a possibility. There's more then enough room behind Sledge Hammer/Psyclone area where it's being built, over the pond or not. Either way, an awesome hyper could be built with room to spare.

I mean, being the most attended park in North America and also lacking a real good steel or wood coaster (excluding Wild Beast!), a major hyper would fit in perfectly IMO. We've been ripped off the past two seasons, and if CF comes in and saves the day, that'd just be awesome :)

DawgByte II's avatar I don't care what it is... as long as:

1> It's their new true signature coaster.
2> It's their tallest coaster.
3> It's smooth
And most important...
4> It has an original layout.

Wonderland may have a lot of coasters, but I would say nearly 50% are cloned, including Tomb Raider, Top Gun, Fly, Italian Job, Silver Streak & Bat.

Morgan coasters are just as good as Intiamin. Actually, it seems like Morgan has a better safty record. Phantoms Revenge rivals the likes of ROS IMO. Nothing can compare to the bunny hops and the double down.
