Emerald Pointe site reveals details of "water play" suspended coaster

Posted Thursday, May 17, 2001 4:41 AM | Contributed by StarCoasters

Emerald Point, a water park in North Carolina, has posted a short description of their new attraction, which sounds a lot like a Setpoint Swing Thing similar to the ride at Paramount's Carowinds.

Nice to see more of these being sold!

I haven't had a chance to try Paramount's Carowinds Swing Thing out yet, but it looks like a really great concept. The only problem I've really heard about it is a small capacity. If they manage to work something out to solve that problem, they'll be in good shape.

Caipro, makers of PKI's Scooby Doo Ghoster Coaster, also has a suspended coaster with water play effects so it could be different than the coaster "up the road" at Carowinds.

I've never seen what the SwingThing looks like. Does anyone know of a link to some pics of it, so I know what we're talking about!

Doesn't IOA have a Swing Thing? Pteranydon Flyers? I thought that this would make it 3 swing things, Jes Coaster really confused me.

Will there ever be a park prettier than BGW?

He means both Set Point Water-Coaster Swing Things.
