A pier-spanning roller coaster is a really good idea, but you know what Morey's needs worse? A pier-spanning sky lift with a station on each end to get people from on pier to the other. Heck, make it a three pier ride, and take riders between all three. The walking between piers makes my vacation time lass relaxing and more painful in the feet, and at $3 per ride, the tram that takes riders up and down the piers can get pricey when you rely on it all the time.

Maybe I'm just wishing that the tram had a pay-one-price option.

Travis, if Morey's needed a chairlift, they'd already ha...

Sorry. ;)

Nah, they got it all wrong, they need to make it a roller coaster transport ride. Put a station on each pier and the ride goes between stations in a continuous loop, kind of like what I built in RCT once. It improved my guest happiness, kept them from falling asleep, and got them from A to B.

Not to mention that's 4 new credits right there!

The Bureau of Satin Jackets & Gravy Buffets begs to differ.

Anyone catch this in the article:

..."the proposed plan includes what appears to be a roller coaster that loops between the two locations."

Is that inartful phrasing or does this attraction now have loops?

^I think that was meant to imply a "round-trip" circuit, as opposed to the ever-popular (?) transportation coaster that MRider referenced above...

Now, a one-way trip to Alaska, THAT might make a good (Disaster) Transport coaster... ;~P

Back in my day, parks used terminology calling a helix a "horizontal loop" in order to boost their loop count.

Is there another coaster project out there that has been gestating this publically for this long? Screamscape has items including draft layouts going back to 2007 but I know the rumors go back much further.

The only ones that come to mind are Orphan Rocker and Ravine Flyer 1-200....

Flying Turns comes up just short....

So how many track record credits does that work out to? One for each station? ;-p

You can count credits however you want to count them.®

The Bureau of Satin Jackets & Gravy Buffets begs to differ...again.

Let's see.... BSJGB Standing Legislation, Article XVI, section 19, paragraph 5, sub-paragraph 9a.... counts as one coaster credit unless ridden on Tuesday, when the second card is not turned up and two jacks are a half-fizzbin, unless a king has been dealt, in which case the rider gets another card, except when it is dark.

Lost - - - > But blisters from the Wildwood boardwalk are like little badges of honor. So painful, but so worth having.

That walk up and down the boardwalk is part of what makes Wildwood so special.

Darn....I wish it were summer now.
