Now I will have a new reason to go to Waldameer! YEAH! I really do love this park. And Steel Dragon spinning coaster is a lot of fun as is the Comet. As if I need one more reason to go to Waldameer. I will just avoid a nice day in August next time! ;)
I'm not that familiar with the case, but of course it won't prevent me from putting in my $0.02.
1) Regarding the argument that state law forbids erosion of the bluffs-- PA state law prohibits activity that will cause erosion anywhere throughout the state.
It doesn't mean you can't build. It just means that you have to take the proper precautions during and after construction to prevent erosion. If erosion occurs, you're required to remedy the situation. If not, you're fined and construction is stopped.
2) Regarding the path of the coaster being too close to the people's house-- could it be that their house is built too close to the property line? If so, why penalize the park?
3) I hate the argument "we're not against the (insert project name here) just with where they're putting it." Translation: we'll like it when you water it down and restrict it so much it's not worth building anymore.
Wonderful news! I think I've brought this up before, but does anyone remember when the ride was first "announced"? Wasn't the teaser in ACE News about 10 years ago? Wow, what a long battle this has been. Hopefully it will be worth the wait.
Chuck, looking foreward to riding the last CCI as Bells seems to be dead in the water.
Chuck, last I knew about Bells was that they were still going forward with the court battles to build a coaster at their currentl location. If they win all the battles you may see the CCI come to life. But as you may be aware, Bells is also looking to possibly move to Jenks for the new entertainment development that is going on there (Aquarium, Riverwalk mall, Indoor Water Park, Casinos, Etc.).
I have seen plans for the new park and the coaster isn't a CCI creation. They completed the business plan for the new park, and are currently looking for funding.
