Waldameer Park got a big boost Wednesday night when Millcreek Township's zoning board approved construction of the park's Ravine Flyer II roller coaster, specifying 17 conditions. The ride has been held up by regulations for years by local and state authorities.
I doubt they have the cash to sustain a long-term court battle. Besides, the way I understand it, you'd have to get a judge to issue an injunction to stop it for the time being, and that's like having to make a case before it goes to trial.
More importantly, if they want an injunction, they would have to put up a bond to cover any costs of delay if they were to eventually lose. That can get very expensive. For example, when Soldier Field, in Chicago, was being rebuilt, an organization, Friends of the Park, sued to get it stopped. However, they determined that they could not afford to get an injunction becuase the bond would be millions. However, they still continued the suit to stop them from demolishing a stadium that was already demolished. - pretty pointless.
What does a "Coaster Crossing" sign look like?Is it like a deer crossing?I've never been to that area, but some of the requirements seem a little silly at first glance. *** This post was edited by PerrysburgGuy 4/29/2004 5:28:30 PM ***
Most excellent... here's hoping this thing'll get built! Annddd AJF... a link to the layout would be wonderful. Also if you can't find a place to put it online, scan it in and send it to billbrandt(at)adelphia.net (replacing (at) with @, of course), and I can get it on the web for you, I'd love to see it and I'm sure others would too.
