Coaster circleing an entire park

Sunday, March 19, 2000 9:33 PM
Does anyone know why a theme park doesnt invent a coaster (wood or steel) that would circle the entire park. Think about it, if a park did this it would also provide a scenic view of the park like the railroad trains that do this in parks. Personally I think this would be pretty cool. It doesnt have to be fast or have inversions. Maybe a family coaster that glides a complete circle throughout the park with small dips and possibly a 100ft plus hill to give a good view of the surroundings.

I've thought about this before, and concluded it just wouldn't be a very interesting coaster to ride. It would have to be large or have multiple lifts, depending on the park, in order to get around. It also wouldn't likely have many turn, but more of a gradual continuous curve.

Not a bad idea, but I bet it wouldn't be that exciting.

Also, just imagine how expensive that would be? Another thing, it would block the view of the park and probabally wouldn't look too great. Not that coasters don't look good, but personally, I think a big wall of steel beams or wooden supports would kinda give it a "prison" effect. Now, I don't think a park would want that ;)

Well at Dorney Park there is Steel Force that goes along one whole side of the park.

I often tought about a coaster shuttle. Two station so you can travel from one end of the park to the other. It would beat the train or gondolas. Plus each half could be different. One station near the enterance and the other at the far side of the park.
