New Ride/Coaster at Libertyland?

Saturday, April 6, 2002 5:55 PM

"Libertyland’s newest attraction, The Rebellion, is a hair-raising experience no one will want to miss. Only the bravest of Park guests will join in this “rebellious” ride!"

That is the information according to their website. Does anyone know anything about this ride? Liberyland is a theme park in Memphis, TN home to 2 other coasters. Here is a link to the offical site.

LAst us enthusiasts heard from him was in this article about the park's future. Earlier in 2001 they were optimizing into a custom steel coaster(probably family) but that's probably not happening this year. All I have to say is it's about time they added something! Last thing was what...Tunnel of Terror and Kamikaze like 8 years ago, come on my brothers does Elvis have to come back to talk some since into this park?

If 70% of their vistors are out of state then wouldn't you rather head for Magic Springs or Silver Dollar City, or even Dollywood than travel to an outdated park in a high crime section of the city? They need something that will make the geust take the exit on the highway and pass by Graceland to LIBERTYLAND(like that will ever happen). KUDOS to the crew for coming up with whatever it is for 2002 because last time I was there the park and staff needed a face lift.

Maybe Rebellion is actually a monrail to transport guest to the park from the parking lot, which seriously is two blocks down

info about ride posted in rrc & urc by Lonnol: It is a Fabbri Jungle Drop. It is the first park model and Reed Shows is getting (or just got) a portable one. I believe it uses some sort of chain lift to the top of the 100-foot tower and then the rig freefalls into the magnetic brakes.

couple pics of new ride:

According to the Smithsonian Institution, "in the quest to identify the
roots of America's music, all roads lead to Memphis."

Wow, that's some pretty low attendance. You would think a park with a wood and looper would do a little better. Good luck to them.

Off with the trims!

It's a Fabbri Mega Drop, not a Chance.
