Developers of the planned Orlando Thrill Park shared their message with local residents on Wednesday. The residents got a chance to look at details plans for the proposed park, which would be built across the street from their homes.
Stratacoaster, what is that? Did anyone notice the "green" coaster the bottom left is a Vekoma SLC?
"Orlando Thrill Park"? Did Cedar Fair name this place?
Are they planning on buying a few used coasters? SLC would be pretty easy to get used, but it wouldn't be my first choice for a thrill park. Gotta have a B&M inverted. Guess it would be ok if they had the vest type restraints that Morey's piers has on theirs. Used to only ride that one time a visit, and usually walked off with a headache. Last season rode it five times. Those restraints make those SLC's much more rideable.
Sounds a little far fetched to me. Sort of like the the redevelopment of Six Flags New Orleans by that Southern Star group. :)
I've had a thrill park concept in my head for a decade now. It's a really unique idea, and I wish I could get it built, but I am not a businessman, and even I know that my idea is far fetched.
I would love to see this park be built, and if the right people are involved, it just might happen. It seems more so than not, proposed new parks do not get built because of all the hoops the planners have to jump through.
Hmmm...that's one tophat I wouldn't mind having a friction wheel on. Imagine what would happen if a car stalled like Dragster...but UPSIDE-DOWN??
Well I can only count maybe 9 coasters in the picture. Does anyone see 15? And we can figure out what they are?
Even, if this park happens and they just plop everything in like roller coaster tycoon, it seems to me that the park would be awfully crowded with structures. Let alone the people that visit it. How big is this park supposed to be? Does say on that map somewhere?
The source to the answer to you question is linked below, Corkscrew. :p
"A thrill park spanning more than 70 acres is in the works for Central Florida."
"The company wants to build "Orlando Thrill Park" next to Tangelo Park. It would pack 15 large roller coasters into dozens of acres of land."
For a point of refrence, Cedar point is about 365 acres
By copying and pasting from the news website, I think I have messed up the formatting for this thread. For that, I am deeply sorry. :p
Maybe I can fix it somehow? Let me try...
Nope. I can't do it. :(Last edited by LostKause, Saturday, November 13, 2010 8:06 AM
