Ragin' Cajun - Reverchon Spinning Wild Mouse
King Chaos - Huss Top Spin
Big Easy Balloons - Zamperla Balloon Race
Revolution - Huss Frisbee (from SFGAdv.)
all 4 of these rides were what was rumored to be coming
the 5th ride The Jester's Wild Ride may be a Zamperla Disk'o (which is also rumored to be one of the new rides coming to SFOG for 2004).
From that description it does sound like the Jesters Wild Ride is indeed a Disko like SFZip said above.
That link did not want to work at all. *** Edited 1/17/2004 7:45:34 PM UTC by thepinkdoomofmonkeys***
Don't get me wrong, with SF in the financial state it is in, those of us that live near SFGAm have no right to complain. I am just curious about the similarities between those two rides and that is why I question the extra ride being a disk-o. - Although the description of rocking back and forth definitely fits.
Ragin Cajun-Spinning Wild Mouse, yes, we knew
Big Easy Balloons, yes, we knew
King Chaos- Huss TopSpin, yes we knew
Jester's Wild Ride- who knows, the picture didn't really give a good idea, just shows a "Mardi Gras Float", BUT also described the ride as a ride for ALL ages....
Revolution, in place of Ameri-go-Round, yes we know
**IF SOMEONE CAN SHOW ME HOW TO POST PICTURES, I RECEIVED A PRESS RELEASE CD, AND I HAVE PICTURES OF ALL THE RENDERINGS OF RIDES IF YOU WANT TO SEE**
Dont forget the re-painting of Demon, original color...and New Batman colors for 2004.
Black supports, grey track and YELLOW rails, ala SFNO.
We'll all know soon enough...:)
As for the Batman paint job, to correct ClubXJeff, the entire track and rails will be yellow, while the supports will be a blueish-black.
The Revolution will be located where the Carousel near the back of the park is located. The Carousel will not be reinstalled into the park for the 2004 season but they do not foresee selling it. Tim Black, the general manager, said they feel it still belongs in the park.
As for the way the park introduced everything.. Actual full-time managers of the park played in a band with some Orlean's style music while the PR people and assistants came in throwing out beads and popping confetti. Sorry coasterqueen, they did not require any "flashing" in order to recieve the beads, there were children in attendance.
Has anybody checked Amusement Business to see what it is?
Okay, 5 new rides, two new paint jobs, and a new area. it's kind of a rip off to other parks, but I'll just live with it. Now, if SFGAM gets anything next year I'll think of it as a huge rip off, as long as parks such as SFDL don't get anything.
Edit; Spelling Glaring.
But then again, if SFOG gets an coaster without removal of Freefall, I'll probably be just fine. *** Edited 1/18/2004 1:53:25 AM UTC by thepinkdoomofmonkeys***
Well there you have it. The most neglected area of the park is going to be booming.
Your description of Joker's wild ride sounds *exactly* like a Disco. It rocks back and forth on a u-shaped track, and spins. Of course, the same thing could be said for a rocking tug.
Quoted from the Yahoo article: "If it's a more tame party fun-seekers crave, two new family attractions are a must." Additionally, No Coaster Con attendees say that Jester's Wild Ride is meant for "all ages." That certainly sounds more like the Rockin' Tug to me. I'm pretty sure Zamperla is marketing the Disk'o as a thrill ride.
Additionally, the description of the ride (rocking and then beginning to spin) fits a Rockin' Tug much better than a Disk'o. I don't believe the Disk'o has much rocking time before the spinning kicks in.
And again, why get a Disk'o when you have a Frisbee? They're the same ride.
