The Sky Cabin is receiving a new, patriotic color scheme while Perilous Plunge is undergoing color changes as well. No official word yet on when the ride will re-open.
Xcelerator pieces continue to stack up in their lot. No ground work has taken place on the site yet.

Perilous Plunge looks a whole lot better. Very nice color selection.

Magic Mountain could take a few cues from Knotts decisions to keep older rides looking new...

I like the Sky Cabin color treatment. I wonder if the Space Spiral at CP will get the same scheme?

Was the Sky Cabin an old parachute ride?
CP! Still the coaster capital of the world in 2002!

Yep, up until a few years ago. I don't know why they took them out though. Maybe someone else can help?

Perilous Plunge looks so ugly now. I actually felt a shock go through my body looking at its new paint scheme. The steel and blue drop was good enough already! It's a Boardwalk not a damn jungle!

I think both paint jobs were benifitial to the apperance of the park. Especially know that they painted over that old sky tower.

After supreme scream they decided operating costs and low capacity out weiged the need to keep it open, terrible shame it is.

the parachutes were on the same tower as the sky cabin. A few years back CP was goin to have to replace the cables on the chutes, and it was goin to cost them about a million bucks. They decided that the money would be better spent elsewhere and scraped the chutes.
