No water on SDC's new coaster

Tuesday, June 29, 2004 11:34 AM
There has been a lot of talk about "A Blast into the Wilderness" SDC's new coaster for 2005, but i have to disagree with the belief of a water splash anywhere in the coasters track. the splash pool that you can see in the area of construction belongs to the former coaster Buzz Saw Falls which was the worlds first water coaster. Buzz Saw did not do what SDC intended it to do wich was to make money. so to put another water coaster in place of a water coaster that failed to meet expectations would be stupid.

Or they could incorporate the part of the old ride they liked into a new attraction which would be more marketable to the region rather than locally, therefore making more money with a bigger name attraction while saving money on the installation of the water splashdown which is already there. Sounds pretty smart to me.

"There has been a lot of talk about "A Blast into the Wilderness" SDC's new coaster for 2005"

The ride's name is PowderKeg, not a "A Blast in the Wilderness". That's the tagline. Another tagline SDC uses is "The Wildest Ride in the Woods".

"Buzz Saw did not do what SDC intended it to do wich was to make money."

Well, no rides in the park make money. Silver Dollar City uses the one price gate admission system created by Six Flags Over Texas in 1961.

"so to put another water coaster in place of a water coaster that failed to meet expectations would be stupid"

I think it will have a splash pool finalee, as shown on the concept survey a year ago.

I seem to be experiencing some deja vu here. Why are you posting the same thing that you did a month ago?

Branson-Boy from 6/2/04

"I can understand why people would think that the new ride would have water, its because the ride it is taking place of was named Buzz Saw Falls, a "water coaster" prototype. Buzz Saw was built in 99 and it was the worlds first and only "water coaster." The construction on the new ride has not taken place yet so some of Buzz Saw still can be seen including the chain lift and the spash down area. it look like it is being built and not torn down like it really is. so i hope i have cleared things up for you and i think (think) it is safe to say that there will be no splashes on the new ride ."

I've never seen it called a watercoaster by anybody officialy, it could simply be a rollercoaster with a water element(i personally was thinking somehting along thelines of Anaconda's tunnel w/splash, or similar type of element).

Basically, don't speculate until an official announcement has been made.

Meh, the speculation is *more than half the fun* for me, Clint....but I don't take it personally when the parks disagree with me...:)

However, much like BGT's coaster, I'm *thinking* that SDC may use the splash-pool finale a la Matterhorn, as a PART of the braking system...don't panic, just because I'm THINKING doesn't necessarily spell out a doomsday scenario....;)

True, Bill, maybe I should have said it more like that, speculate, but don't argue when the park may or maynot agree with you(enthusiasts either).

Momma always said, new coasters are like a box of choclate, you never know what your gonna get....;)

Tekno, you might wanna spell Pavalion (Pavilion) and Campain (Campaign) right when you get around to it! :)

Brian, who agrees that the Pavilion should stay.. just get some work ordered on Hurricane!

Think: Disney Matterhorn. It's a coaster with a watersplash element. It uses water as a braking system (what a cool idea!) Maybe SDC is going to do something like that, or just use it for fun. Things do have multiple uses, too. Maybe the tank could be used for something else (I know, doubtful.)

Well as one of the resident SDC locals, I will say that they have filled in the water areas from BSF. From the sounds of it, there will be no splash on the ride.

I have a feeling this ride won't have a water splash (although I was and am hoping for one!) However none of us truly know, unless one of you is working on the project then I suppose you would know. I'm sure we will have an official announcement soon! Until then we wait in jolted anticipation!
