New Morgan Hyper train at IAAPA

Wednesday, November 14, 2001 6:01 PM
Pic of a train from Morgan's latest hypercoaster project that will be opening in the U.S. in the Spring. www.thrillrideexperience.com  From what the reps say this coaster looks like it will be constructed in the U.S.   (anyone have any ideas where)

Maybe it was the rumored one for SFWoA? lol. My guess would be SF St.Louis.

I don't know about a Morgan in St. Louis...considering that CF already has Mamba in MO, I would think Six Flags would want something different. However, I wouldn't complain - I love the Morgan Hypers. I think they are severly underated. I'd love to see a Morgan hyper that's not an out and back, but still kept the helix turnaround, and the bunnyhops at the end (In other words, a Morgan Hyper Twister airtime machine !).

From what I understand, SFWoA never got the appropriate permits from the city, plus I remember reading an article about how the park was re-focusing their 2002 plans towards an animal attraction.

Not to sound mean but those are their 2003 plans Zero-G.  I think it is still possible for SFWoA to get something.  They might just be waiting for one of their rivals >cough<Cedar Point<cough> to announce their ride.

Actually I was told by one of my bosses what we're pretty much getting for next year. But, I dont know if its true or not so I'd rather not say. It could be all falsi info as far as I know.

If the new train is for 2003, then it could be the new Morgan hypercoaster train which could be used for Michigan's Adventure's hypercoaster they were supposed to get in 2002.

Really now, this isn't directed just to you. There are a number of people who do this. If you have "inside" information, don't tell us that you have it unless you are going to tell us what it is!

Yeah for real.  Don't bring it up if your not going to tell us.  Besides, how do we know your telling the truth?

That would be great. Except for the Outlaw (a CCI), this park kinda sucks. A Morgan would make it really cool. I'd go there again if they had a Morgan. That would be Tic-Tac-Toe --> 3 Morgans in a row, just off of I-35 ! ;) I don't see them affording something that large...are you joking perhaps ? I hope it's true though.

Most of what Ive heard is just like returning flatrides nothing to get excited about. Thats why I didnt want to say anything. There might not even be an announcement if thats all thats happening this year. But again its just what i heard could be totally false.
