The "show me state" has several new rides this season, including Flying Circus (Flying Eagles) and Chaos, both new this year at Celebration City. At Worlds of Fun, get ready for Spinning Dragons, an all new spinning coaster. Check out the latest photos of these projects at Midwest Information Guide.

Spinning Dragon? S.H.O.T.S!

Yup. What a fun-looking coaster. I wish I could have actually compared it to Orient Express, but I'll admit that the fun factor seems like it will be higher on Spinning Dragons. S.H.o.t.S., indeed!

Looks very similar to Timberland Twister. I wouldn't be surprised if it is the same because of the same ownership.

They're identical, MNguy.

Well I enjoy shots, but I don't think that is what you are talking about. Brain fart - what does S.H.O.T.S. stand for again. Stupid college is making my brain hurt and I am not thinking correctly right now.

Speaking about the Flying Circus. It was a very nice surprise when I realized it was a Flying Scooter ride. I love Celebration City Theme Park a lot and it just keeps on getting better and better.
In a few weeks I'll be going to Silver Dollar City and be checking on what came of Buzzsaw Falls. It was sad to realize I got to be one of the last to ride it after I heard it was being removed. I rode it on her last day in October. SDC Does not run her during the Christmas time due to Cold Weather and low ridership when they had it running Christmas of 99. Right now SDC seems to be citing Maintenance Costs and the short length of the ride for the removal of the ride.

Am I the only one who thinks Flying Cirus is the ugliest flat ride ever?

Bill, I would think that is a big YEP. ;) I don't see what is so "ugly" about it. It is a pretty ride. :)

Yea, pretty. Pretty ugly!!
Chaos looks amazing though. Can't WAIT to ride Wildcat.
I also can't wait to ride the replacement of Buzz Saw next year.

Actually it looks better in person. After looking at the photos, I can see where you might get that idea. It really doesn't look that bad in person - though it is a tad "plain" looking, but I don't think that constitutes "ugly". It will be interesting to see what they do with the BuzzSaw area this season, as we are talking about a rather large area, and there are shops down that way as well - I wonder if they won't just wall the whole area off over there.
Are you coming to WOF opening day on the 3rd?
