queue Timber-Rider's mention of Snake Pit at MA...Last edited by Tyler Boes, Wednesday, August 28, 2013 7:51 PM
From which other park is it being sent?
Indiana Jones is probably not too happy about this...
While the slides may be original, I'm confident they're relocating the water from somewhere.
"At the peak of the 65-foot-tall structure, guests will step into the chambers of Python Plummet that will send them into a free-fall drop as long as 450-feet."
Woo! Take that, Lex Luthor!
I'm sad about Riptide Run being taken out, but Dorney really needed a more up to date water attraction in the WWK section. CamelBeach nearby has a much more aggressive collection of attractions, and they're obviously pulling a lot of business away from Dorney. I don't like those drop slides (they look like an accident waiting to happen to me), but it is a smart move on Cedar Fair's part. Can't wait to see it!
I'm with you, Bunky. Something about having the floor drop out from under me would be unnerving.
Now, a friend just got back from a few days in Williamsburg and she loved their drop slides. She also thought Verbolten was terrifying, so there ya go.
I have yet to ride Verbolten (did KD instead of BGT this year for my "big trip"), but I can't imagine that. Of course, BBW scared the crap out of me when I first rode it, so...
The other slides look like a good time, and I'm sure someone will talk me into riding the drop tubes at some point next season at least once. My fear of water slides is waning a bit after multiple trips to WWK, so it seems like a logical progression to ride a smaller, enclosed drop ride (riding a 200 ft open straight down one will never happen. *laugh* I just think these slides in particular seem like a good way for someone to panic, fling their arms out, and end up getting hurt.
And I still wanted to see a new coaster at Dorney, and I only had two requests for it: Not relocated, and not inverted. Hehehe...
