15 coasters including a 400+ footer?

I don't know what to think.


Im pretty sure that Park diagram indicates the Stratacoaster will be 475ft.

One of the coaster is supposed to be a flying coaster, but the space on the plan is quite small so I am guessing a Zamperla Volare (ouch). I also see a zac spin and a motorbike launch coaster which sounds like the OCC at Darien lake. The photo cuts off the tags for the other coasters.


Before you can be older and wiser you first have to be young and stupid.

Actually, it lists the flying coaster as one of the Vekoma Stingray coasters. It also lists a motorbike launcher and Zacspin, but that's all I could make out on this crappy old monitor.

Egad. This all seems a bit grandiose, in my opinion. Not to be overly pessimistic, but uh...best of luck?

If it doesn't have Disney, Universal or Sea World in front of the name it won't work.

^^ Egad?? LOL. that just took me back to 1994, Pinky and the Brain.

But anyway, gadzooks, this sounds like a project of epic proportions. If it comes through, yay for enthusiasts, and my condolences to the neighbors. .

Um, yeah. I'm gonna come right out now and call shenanigans. I'll take a minimum 25-1 odds this 'park' never sees a single shovel of dirt turned.

What are we gonna do tonight, delan?

Are you pondering what I am pondering?

I think so Vater, but this time, Delan has to wear the tutu.

A 425 ft inverted accelerator coaster?

The cost of that one coaster alone is probably more money than they raise total for this project.

Vegas will get a nice new waterpark before this thing happens, and we aint getting one anytome soon. :)

Maybe 425 feet is the length of the coaster, not the height. :)

Kinda like the "650-foot" buffer wall they mentioned, which at first had me picturing a park surrounded by a 65-story noise barrier.

I picture Kurt Russell and John Carpenter collaborating once again on ESCAPE FROM OTP (Orlando Thrill Park, until it gets a real name) Could be worse...could be ESCAPE FROM OPP!


The amusement park rises bold and stark..kids are huddled on the beach in a mist

It says Intamin Accelerator not Inverted

Slide 12 at this link actually says inverted. http://www.wftv.com/slideshow/25759223/detail.html

Perhaps it is a reverse top hat?

Sounds like a Volcano-type coaster to me. But 3x the height.

^That would match the idea of "inverted accelerator" - and we've been asking for something like V:TBC with a better layout for as long as that ride's been around.

Sure, the whole idea is unlikely as could be, but I remember sitting at the original HRC restaurant down at Universal (before I even got into this insane hobby and thinking "wow, this place with all the movie stuff could be awesome if it had better rides." A few years later I found Paramount parks....a couple years after that, and I thought the same thing about their parks too. ;)
