Has any buzzers around the Cinninatti,Ohio area heard anything on the mall with the park inside?

The mall is called Forest Fair Mall. They are opening a park in August at the mall called "Wonderland Park". It's supposed to have a roller coaster in the park. Right now they have cleared a space to build the park. All of the rides that used to be at the "Time Out" section are going in there. That's all that I know of.

I was there when they were building it. They have a sweet arcade and a balloon ferris wheel. Only a few stores were up, but they included specialty shops such as Bass Pro Shops: Outdoor World and Guitar Center. There is also a movie theatre, lazer quest type deal, some mild flat rides, and some put-put golf. That was all back in late July

Mannnnn - why can't anyone spell CINCINNATI correctly? ;)
Just messin' with ya'.
I live about 5 miles from Forest Fair Mall. I haven't been up there for several months as I usually go to Tri-County, but from what I understand, they are trying to turn the huge place into a value-oriented, family focused center. I can't imagine the coaster will be anything all that spectacular - mainly just for kids. But it should be interesting to see what they come up with.

Went to Forest Fair yesterday, and peaked through the windows they have cut out in the walls surrounding the Wonderpark area. All you see is dirt, but it is leveled off, and they were working on a concrete pillar, which may or may not be a support for the coaster. Too soon to tell, but it did have some steel sticking up out of it which could be used as an anchor for the coaster support. No pictures or anything, though.

Hope it succeeds when it opens. We used to have Old Chicago here back in the late 70s but it only lasted 6 years. This park did have an Arrow looper exactly like Corkscrew at CP. It is possible to have an adult coaster instead of a kiddie(Even though these Arrow loopers are not thrilling today but they were back in the 70s).

Arrows looper are still more thrilling than Rip-Off(Ripsaw)!! But there is ONE Aroow looper NOT as thrilling as Ripsaw and it's in the same state!

Since we're on the park in the mall subject I've always wondered and Mall of America. I know there is a coaster there but, who made it? Does it have inversions? And is it a good ride or a lame ride?

Inside the Mall of America is Knott's Camp Snoopy, managed by Cedar Fair. Thier roller coaster is called Ripsaw. Its a family roller coaster similar to Jaguar at Knott's Berry Farm in California. Both were built by Zierer.

punk, I don't know if you already knew this, but the ferris wheel, arcade and theatre have been there for a long time. And for over half the mall being without stores, that's been going on a while too. Most stores decide to open themselves at Tri-County Mall just down the street.

Ok, Wonderpark(if you look at the painted map on the walls near the food court) is going to be across the hall from Media Play, so if the coaster does go in there, its going to be extremely small.
