I have inside tip that an additional electric feed is going to the park to supply just one ride, the project is called simply "One Ride" What kind of ride would require it's own feed? Perhaps a linear induction coaster? This is REAL insider info and is not a joke, remember you heard it here first!
I would be shocked if Cedar Fair moved Steel Venom this year. Ditching two coasters (and especially two marquee level coasters) in one off-season from a struggling park just sounds too precipitous a move for them. And probably unwise, if they want the park to survive.
It's a 12,000volt line and needs to be installed for the 2008 season. I don't know much about amusement park rides but Dorney has one 12,000 volt line feeding the entire park. Is a linear induction coaster the best bet?
While interesting it honestly could mean anything. The park may be close to maxing out their current electric feed and bringing in enough power for the next five years with the installation of the next ride. Conversly, it could be an LSM or LIM coaster given both use significant power.
Well it would definitely help the park with its collection. It is the only MAJOR themer in the area without some type of launched coaster as SFGAdv has Chiller and KingdaKa and Hershey has Storm Runner.
GL doesn't really need SV anymore as it is going through this "change of direction" anyway. Besides I would much rather WOF get the new GCII in 2008 then a "used" Impulse. ;)
I just hope dorney doesn't make a mistake with anything. I really hope they get something worth paying my 40$ to get in to the park and make me end up leaveing cause im that bored already. I want them to get something to keep me in the park. Do not get me wrong, I love the rest of dorney's rides, but i am already sick of them. i go to dorney at least 4 times a year, and im just used to all the rides almost. A nice launched coaster would be amazing. :]
