Alot of changes for 2008:
1. most likely J2 WILL be trimmed as well as the second hill completely reprofiled.
2. The falling star and the chaos will be removed to make way for a new family water attraction by whitewater west called a rain fortress.(similar to the play structure at hershey but the next size smaller.) with 10 slides and over 450 interactive water objects
3. alot of money will be spent on beautification of the park, its facilities, the parking lot, the buildings, the games, and its staff,
as well as marketing.
They have alot of big plans and see alot of potential in our small Clementon Park.
Also the season will be extended from 76 operating dyas in 2007 to 113 in 2008 including full time in june and weekends in september and october for Halloscreams!
Season pass prices for next year will be very cheap and competitive.
Long live the Big Bad Wolf
I was going to buy a season pass next year just to ride Tsunami but I hope I don't buy and its not the same coaster.
Yes this is a reason to get to the Park ASAP this year. I may head out on Monday night again

I called the park last week and was told the news will be announced in Oct or November.
I'm also local and everyone (locals) knows about this already.
Even when you visit the park the employees talk openly about it.
This is no reason to close this thread down.
There are other threads on this board that are talking up other rides and parks that have yet to be announced or even have a Link.
if that was the case there would have been no talk on this board about Maverick.
Long live the Big Bad Wolf
- I rode past the park yesterday and they had a Crane over the bottom of the lift hill on Tsunami and a Train halfway up the lift I would assume train removal ? I have some pics I will post Later
- All the Picnic tables are In the back parking Lot
- I could see a giant pile of soil in the picnic area this to me looks like they are digging a footing for a new building ?
- called the park and girl said no announcements till next year on the new owners
- asked about Season pass and she said not till next year
- in the new 10-4-07 July August ACE news they say the park is sold and the Jack Rabbit will be Demolished. if they do Demolish the coaster I will be there to take photos (this will be a sad day it was my 1st big coaster)
i have taken a ton of pics of the whole park so that when all work is said and done we have some nice before and after pics.
