Just give you some more info:

-Cliffhanger, a Darton Kite Flyer, will be added to the midway replacing Chaos. Cliffhanger ride will feature 10 hanging cars, each holding three passengers in the prone position. The ride raises on a boom and rotates, giving the passenger the experience of hang gliding.

-Fireball, a KMG Afterburner, will be thrilling people alongside the beach aswell. The Fireball will swings 24 passengers an astonishing 60 feet in the air at a 120 degree angle while simultaneously whirling around at astronomical speeds up to 15 revolutions per minute.

Woah is Chaos getting relocated on the Boardwalk I can't understand taking it out since it is one of the newer rides there and seems to be popular. And also where is Fireball going was anything taken out for it?

"-Fireball, a KMG Afterburner, will be thrilling people alongside the beach as well."

If this is a park model Afterburner it will probably be manufactured by Chance Morgan using specs. from KMG. They have an agreement to build two park versions in the states for KMG, which are called the Revolution 24 and 32. However, if the ride is trailer-mounted then it probably came from KMG's factory in the Netherlands.

Fireball is the first portable version of the Chance Revolution, which is licenced from KMG. It should be fun and I recomend you check out the pictures on www.NorCalCoasters.com to see how they are building raised footers so it can swing over the buildings.

As for Chaos, I think it might be moved, but SCBB is a family park and that was their "thrill" ride. Putting in Fireball and taking out Chaos would even out the thrill and family attractions. Just my opinion though.

This is not a portable ride. First, it uses footers, as you noted. Second, per the statement Chance Morgan released around last time this year, they can build only park models of the Revolution 24 (essentially a park model Afterburner) and the Revolution 32. KMG still builds and sells all trailer-mounted Afterburners in the U.S.

I guess they didn't want to take a Chance on Chaos. ;)
