New drop ride at BGA.

Saturday, January 12, 2008 7:58 AM
The new Jungala area of BGA will include a drop ride that is being promoted as a family drop ride. Anyone know the manufacturer, or any other info on it? From the pics that have been presented, this will be a drop ride that has extensive theming at the base of it.

The only thing that I know about it is that it is going to be part underground and shoot up out of the ground.

I'm not sure how accurate the renderings are, but judging by the preview, it looks like either a small version of the Zamperla Skydrop or a larger version of the Zamperla Jumping Star.

I remember in discussions we considered the S&S water ride, and the Moser rides....but in the visual representations at the park (wish I had a pic handy) - there was clearly a seating configuration that indicated neither of those. There looked pretty clearly to be six-across. Might not be accurate, not sure.

edit: LOL, after going back and looking at the S&S site *again*, MIGHT Jungala be one of these:

Could be... ;)

I wish, but that ride seems to have lap bars.

The pictures on the wall at Busch Gardens were of a Moser Spring ride, and your Zamperla version. I think the Zamperla version is a piece of garbage while the Moser version is fun.

Don't expect a high capacity ride, but a kids ride. Why do they call it family? Maybe, because parents can go on it too.
