For those of you who don't know there is a new theme park going in near Omaha Nebraska in Council Bluff's Iowa.

"Amusement parks have put orders on hold for two roller coasters being built and that his firm may purchase one of them. This means it could be installed much quicker than if one had to be built from scratch, he said."

Any ideas on what it could be?

What two coasters could they possibly be talking about?

Just by going by the drawing and a few guesses it looks like they will have a small double out and back woodie, a wild mouse coaster, and maybe a arrowbatic or a setpoint inverted coaster. Those might not be accurate but if you look at the drawing [url="http://www.coasterbuzz.com/forums/null" target="_blank"> thats what I come up with.

Mike, I'm not sure how safe that drawing is anymore it was about six months ago, and if they are talking about a recent "on hold," Im not sure if they are sticking with their plans...

Does everyone enjoy the optimistic opening date? July 2003. They haven't even broke ground yet and they think they can have a big park open by then. Hmm, guess they better get started (that or hire SDC to build it for them).

(I will believe when I see it)

Would it have killed you to read the article, CPNuts?

Woodie has been thought to be Thunder Eagle and the wild mouse would come from Zamperla.

Vertigo,

Where did you hear about the woodie? All the info i've heard or seen as lead in the direction of a wood/steel combination similar to Gemini at the Point

I think that's what he meant. The woodie will be a hybrid.

and CP(numb)nut please don't post. Actually falling off the face of the earth wouldn't be too much to ask.

If you were on RRC you would have been "Plonked" by now.
