From Seattle: signs of hope!

Go to http://wildonescoasterclub.tripod.com/ and follow the link to the construction photos of S&S' new woodie. With heavy equipment and loads of lumber on site, along with turnaround footers already in place, I'm thinking this year for sure!!!

Yay! Hooray! Hopefully with a mild winter this thing will be open next season. CAC weekend keeps looking better and better.

It's the Pacific Northwest. "Mild winter" (relative to what we're used to here in Pennsylvania, anyway) is the norm.

Great news.

As a coaster enthusiast living in one of the most coaster deficient areas in the nation,I am thrilled to see construction getting under way on this coaster. However,I find it ironic that the lumber for this coaster is coming all the way from Louisiana to a region of the country that is known for vast evergreen forests and its' timber industry.I hope that the pine lumber holds up well in our damp northwest climate.Anyone know what trains this coaster will have?

Hopefully,this will start something here in the Pacific Northwest and some of the parks here in Oregon will take notice and realize that they now have some competition for my amusement dollar coming from up north.

Ron, the treated pine will LOVE your weather....the hot, dry, and esp. SUNNY conditions are what it doesn't like....

bill, hoping that RSA's *amusement dollar* is BIG, like one of those Ed McMahon checks, so the parks will be sure to *take notice* of where it's going...;)

RSA...Ronald S. Anderson.....ROFL. How "yous guys" keep up with my *acronymania* in the first place is WAY beyond me....and apparently I'm *somewhere* in the Milky Way....per dawnmarie...see Zinga thread...;)

P.S. Another RSA *dollar* I guess would be a "Rand"...Republic of South Africa...;)

I wish it was big.This is one of the reasons my track record is not that long.At this point I can only dream of going to places like Cedar Point, Holiday World,and Michigans' Adventure.Someday,God willing,I will go to these parks at least once before I die.So for now,I have to stick to parks within my region.

Montu, for an idea of what this coaster will look like, go to www.proudlock.org/tpa and follow the link to the Seattle park. I say idea, because no one knows anything about the coaster for sure yet, sinse no official announcement has been made. But the plans filed with the city of Federal Way last spring are posted on that site. That was with a 75ft height, but word has it that after an env impact study found nothing detrimental, the park was seeking a variance to go higher. No word at all on how that went.

They did approve the removal of the height restriction, but nobody knows how high they are allowing. I do know that the city of Federal Way has a limit of 150ft for all structures. That would explain the "weak" drop on the I-5 dive, their skycoaster.

The new woodie is rumored to be 120' tall and 4100' long which I got from a reliable source. I can't wait for them to announce it and I hope they announce it soon so that I can see if I was right. If this ride happens to be fully loaded with airtime with zero dead hills and if it has good trains with lapbars that stays up than I'd expect this to be my new #1 woodie!! I hope S&S will build some good trains for their woodies like GCI did.

Well, do we know that S&S will make their own trains, or will they go to PTC or (*shudder*) Gerstlauer?

(Aside -- I actually do LIKE Gerst trains, on the right ride. They were fine on Villain when it first opened, for instance. But in general I prefer PTC's. Anyway...)
