Well a coupld years ago there was an article in the Omaha World Herald about Fun Plex building a new Roller Coaster. So every time I pass by there well driving I look to see if anything new is happening with no luck. Just found out today that I must of drove way to fast because according to http://www.rcdb.com/id3843.htm it is opening this year and upon going to www.fun-plex.com I found construction photos. It is supposed to be 65ft tall and go over the Go Kart Track. Nothing huge but definitly exciting for me anyways. I am going to go by there this evening to see what else new is going on over there and take some pictures. I'll probably post them on my myspace or image shack.
I bet Blue Streak to Magnum would be a big jump I hope to ride both of those rides one of these years finally. Yes it's the tallest in Nebraska your right. Very excited for some reason. Mainly because it's new to Nebraska. It's supposed to open May 19th but I'll be at Worlds of Fun for Coaster Mayhem that day so I'll have to ride it on May 20th.
Well, my Mom had been ridingf the Yankee Cannonball at Canobie (my home park) for years, and it was her first "Big" coaster. I wish the cameras had been working that day. The look on her face would've priceless!
Coaster Junkie from NH I drive in & out of Boston, so I ride coasters to relax!
Yeah same thing going on at my park Dixie Landin' which is supposed to be getting some coaster from Holland and tomorrow I am planning to take a trip up to Baton Rouge and I will find out if I will have another credit for this park, Anyone elses not well known park getting a new coaster.
Bolliger/Mabillard for President in '08 NOT Dinn/Summers
Me too Fever me too. I went and looked at it tonight it's almost complete. It also looks to be in pretty good condition I wonder which park they got it from? It was to dark by the time I got there to get any good pictures with the camera I had on hand. I was there as the sun was setting around 8:15 I'll try tomorrow with a different camera. *** Edited 4/22/2007 2:05:41 AM UTC by TonyBlackjack***
I found the looping Pinfari pretty fun, actually. Nothing to write home about, but far from being among the worst rides going.
This new ride looks like fun, I've always enjoyed these types of coasters--SDC Galaxis, Schwarzkopf Wildcats, Zyklons, etc. They are some of the only rides that still give me butterflies on the first drop. Most modern coasters have failed to do that to me for years.
Zyklons are usually pretty fun. It all depends on the train. The older ones are usually better; the newer ones have tighter seating and, in some cases (Wildwood, here's looking at you), OTSRs- even on non-looping rides.
