Kennywood is adding a new extraterrestrial thrill ride for next season, the Cosmic Chaos. The ride is a Zamperla Disk'O.

Perhaps they'll add this ride to the alien theme park planned for Roswell, New Mexico.

Back on topic, this looks like a great addition and I'm still dying to get on a Disk'o. As far as the spinning goes, is it a little too much to the point of making you dizzy, or is it just right?

Kennywood's version is the Super Disk-O, also found at Silver Dollar City. It sits more riders than a standard Disk-O and features a bigger U-shaped track. If run the same as at SDC the spinning is moderate.
Should prove to be a huge hit!

Im excited to see a new ride at Kennywood again, and I hope it does well. But, I hate to see the Flying Carpet removed. Even if they would bring it back to a different spot in the park in a few years down the road it probably wouldnt be the same. Ive never been on a Disk-O yet, so Im pretty pumped to get on one of those.
I hope its not too long before Kennywood reveals more plans for the new land.

Moosh: As stated in the article, Kennywood's Disk'O holds 24 riders--it's a standard Disk'O disk on a Super Disk'O track. This isn't a misprint by the newspaper, by the way.

Silver Dollar City has a Disk-O as well? SWEET! I am heading out there later this summer. I am beginning to get addicted to those things. ;)
Anyway, Cosmic Chaos will be a definite winner for Kennywood. I can't think of a better choice for a new ride. :) Rock on!

Disk-O.... Yeah these are fun rides. Super track? Time to add a return to Kennywood as a definite stop on my summer drive. The normal Disk-O and Screaming Swing would have made it a possible stop but the larger swing and this ride make it a definite addition.
