Jeff's avatar They sure look like photos to me.

How about that first drop. That's impressive for a mouse! Is that Troika something that was relocated and cleaned up?

Yes, that is a nice drop, nice coaster for PKD after getting XLC!

Yeah, you've got to love that drop on a mouse.  I think The Fly at PCW and Legoland's Technic Coaster are the only other ones in North America that have that drop.

In one of the other threads someone said that the Troika is from PGA.  That's too bad (for PGA), because it's a good, fun flat ride that appeals to all ages.  I know that they're getting the Eagles, but it's a shame they couldn't keep the Troika, too.

Aaron, still hoping for a mouse at PKI...:)

Finally the pic's load up and boy is that one sweet looking ride,I can hardly wait to get down there some time this season to take a spin on it.Triple spin is going to be placed next to shockwave's helix turnaround and looks pretty good,I thought after hearing that scrambler was staying that triple spin would replace wave swinger but thankfully it isn't.Did any one catch that photo of what appears to be a new souviner shop right next to triple spin? I think it adds quite a new look to the midway I'm definitely gonna go to PKD this year.

rollergator's avatar ColumbusCoaster, I've got this really strange feeling, you may get more than you bargained for at PKI...I know absolutely nothing, but I have a WILD guess the park may get the inverted it a "hunch"!
Florida needs an Intamin and/or CCI soon...PLEASE!

Rollergator, I would be very happy if that were true... especially if the manufacturer is Arrow. :)

Ricochet looks awesome. I just hope there won't be lots of trims to slow the ride down too much. Either way, it looks great! As for the Troika, it is not the Triple Play that is located at PGA. It is actually a new ride all together. The reason I know this is cause I'm working at PGA this season(YAY!), and the Triple Play is in my assigned area, and we have already begun job training. So, it will remain at the Park. Just wanted to clear that up. :)

I hate to be like this, but why the hell doesnt Six Flags put anything like this on their sites? They dont even put pics of the rides when theyre already operating! Good job, Paramount, for picking up where SF so idiotically left off.

X: dont play coy, admitt it, you *LIKE* "to be like this". Anyway, name me ONE (major) SF coaster that has not had construction pics available. Granted, those pics arent hosted on the "Official" sites, but the pics are out there and with the help of CBuzz not at all hard to find!

X_has_arrived: Six Flags Holland uploads pics to their website of the construction of Goliath. And they do it on a regular basis:

I fell in love with these rides 2 summers ago (Hershey and Kennywood), now I'm begging, almost pleading that CP builds one in the next 2 years.   Ok, let's start the rumor mill....NOT!   CP gets a Mouse AND a 4th Dimension coaster in 2004.

How much do one of these run??  About 1.5-2 million, right?  Or is it a little more??  That's pocket change for Sandusky.
