Construction update from California Adventure and Castle Park

Posted Monday, May 28, 2001 4:26 PM | Contributed by James Disney recently went out and did another update. We saw that work has finally begun for Disney's California Adventure's new attraction; Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - Play It!, a clone of the attraction from Florida has begun. Also, work continues on the Matterhorn rehab at Disneyland. Several areas along the mountain have had the rock work torn out and they appear to be doing some work to support structures.

Over at Castle Park in Riverside, CA, they have taken delivery of the track for their new Vekoma Roller Skater coaster. Still no sign of the towers for the S&S Double Shot.

On a side note, has acquired We feel that the move is for the best, since Bear-yTales webmaster Bob Barber will be heading back to school this fall. So come on over an see the new look for WestCoaster and Bear-yTales and catch up on some news too!

I'm glad Castle Park is getting a new coaster because I'm going in the end of June for my 8th grade promotion thing. It probably won't be open by then, but it would be cool to see the construction. By the way, what is a Vekoma Roller Skater???

Well, a Vekoma Roller Skater is a kiddie coaster... several parks have them. Disneyland's is called "Gadget's Go-Coaster"...

And Jeff, I can only try my best! We've got alot of things planned for Bear-yTales that Bob just didn't have time to do... the entire site will be evolving and growing over the next few months... and I think most people will be pleased. I hope to make that list this year... ;)

janfrederick's avatar Shucks. I was hoping for a really good coaster at Castle (like its cross-town rival Scandia). Not that I mind kiddie coasters...Something with meat on it would have been better. But with X rising within driving distance, I ain't complaining too hard.
