No Morgan this year?

Sunday, February 16, 2003 2:06 PM
I just noticed/realized that there aren't any Morgan coasters being constructed this year, nor were there any last year. Anyone know what's going on with them?

There was Morgan hyper track at SFM last year, but problems made them not construct :( I know of none for this year.

I thought after they constructed that masterpiece know as the Phantom's Revenge that they would be building more. I hope they do in the future, because their hypers are full of airtime.

They haven't stopped potential production of coasters as far as I know, just none were ordered for this year. Since they merged with Chance, I don't think they have built any coasters.

well I know they sold quite a few chance rides last year and probably some this year, but who knows whats in store, they can survive by just building flat rides

When Micheal Chance bought the assets of D. H. Morgan Mfg. it did not include any of the designers, only the product line. Most, if not all of the coaster designers have gone out on their own. I don't think we're going to see any more coasters like Steel Force, Mamba or Phantoms Revenge until Steve Okomoto designs another one. At this time I believe that the only coaster Chance-Morgan has to offer is a family type ride along the lines of a mine ride.

Correct, Okomoto is no longer there, he has his own company. I don't know if Dana Morgan is interested in still doing his hypers....

Dana has semi-retired. He owns fifty percent of the ride operation at Belmont Park in San Diego, and does some consulting occasionally.

While I've only been on Mamba before, and I loved it. Full of airtime and great G's in the helix. I've got two Morgans in my own state, both of which are in the Top 25 or even Top 10, and haven't been on either. **smacks head on nearby wall repeatedly**

The only Morgan that is "all that" is Phantom and that is more of a matter of the placement of the ride and the rides nature. It is easily a top 5 hyper. Steel Force on the other hand was the biggest case of anticipointment ever. Sure the helix is good and it has a little air but not much.

Of course If an "airtime" coaster doesn't have OMG I am gonna fly out ejector air I am a bit cynical about its air.

I'd say Steel Dragon 2000 is "all that"

No you wouldn't. I sure don't. It's exactly like Steel Force, just a little bit taller and longer. No ejector air, no strong Gs (not even in the turnaround)...but a nice ride.
