Two new coasters 10 minutes from home...not a bad haul.

One of them seems to be complete as far as steel erection goes. Parts for other are lying across the street.

It's interesting how they've painted segments of both these rides blue so they blend into the surrounding walls, ventilation and support columns. Nice touch.

^Wishful thinking. I really hope they get it open next year (keeping fingers crossed). As I've said before, at least the ride coupons never expire (I've got ones from 06').

Personally, I think it was a really bad move on their part to have advertised the ride in 06' in the first place. It didn't sound like they had enough hands on deck to work on that project, as well as, the other rides in the park from their first Podcast of that year.

The new darkride at KW is called Ghostwood Estate. SFA is getting a halfpipe slide (hopefully) themed to Tony Hawk.

Beech Bend - 2 flats from WWW (Wave Swinger and one other I can't recall) and I hear the Scat replacement will be on hand finally.

Dollywood - Splash Battle water ride...and most importantly the completion of the walkway loop from MM to TT!

HW - Star Spangled Carousel and Reindeer Games Frog Hopper

Refurbed Splash Mountain at TDL if it's not already open by now.

The FLying Scooter from Wild West World is the other for Beech Bend. The Carousel from there is the one HW is getting.

Chimelong Paradise is getting 3 more coasters this year including and B&M dive coaster and two more splash coasters, to add to their already relatively large collection that includes a 10 inversion coaster, motorbike coaster, and a half pipe coaster. At the rate they are adding this park will have 20 coasters by 2020.

To be honest I really dont mind. *** Edited 1/2/2008 2:04:20 AM UTC by Audioslaved***

My 2008 travel plans are minimal to none, so it's good we're getting two new coasters five minutes from home:

Avatar Airbender

SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge

May be worth a season pass!

Woo I'm excited there will be flyers at BB next year. Thanks Chuck for that little tidbit I'd forgotten. Hopefully they run them in insane mode. ;)

Let's hope for a more permanent looking installation for these flyers too as a lot of BB's rides have that "nomadic" look. I wonder if they'll keep the other swings they have since they're adding a Wave Swinger. The little ones they currently have are pretty intense!

Ravine Flyer 2.... ;) :)

LOL, hopefully a lot more Voyage/Hades, and a little less BB....although I've heard mention that the Bullet is/was undergoing some tweaking to get it on the right trajectory... ;)

A couple rides/attractions I'd almost forgot about were the new interactive raft ride at Dollywood and Dark Knight @ SFGAm.

But the new non-coaster attraction I'm most looking forward to is the waterpark expansion at the Columbus Zoo. I've had the opportunity to be up there three times now since Labor Day, and it looks pretty nice. Plus, there'll be a "Dry" waterpark included in that expansion too, (which according to the photos I've seen means a small amusement park).
