SFWoA Proposal for 2002

Friday, September 7, 2001 2:28 AM
In this morning's Cleveland Plain Dealer, there was an article talking about the latest proposal given to the Bainbridge Township trustees about next year's attraction.  And it's not a ride.

"Lost World River Tour" would be exhibits featuring animals such as birds, hippos, alligators, and monkeys.  There would also be something called the "Lost Temple" featuring birds, reptiles, and sharks.

The park also wants to add exhibits showcasing Bengal and white tigers and a new 1,500 seat bird arena (I guess to replace the Wild Skies arena on top of the hill).  All of this would be located along the asphalt walkway between the Wild Life side and Wild Rides.  The township has scheduled their discussion of this proposal on Sept. 20.

It also stated that some of these attractions will be coming from Six Flags Marine World.

As for the new roller coaster, there was a small blurb about it still facing opposition (as the park would have liked to have it built where the current Wild Skies bird show is). I thought the park had the okay to build it but the article did state that the township still has to discuss the idea of having amusements on the Wild Life side.

I thought that the wildlife section was governed by Geauga Lake (the city/village) rather than Bainbridge Township which governs the wildride section of the park.   If anyone would like to clarify this it would be wonderfully appreciated.

No, Bainbridge is the Geauga Lake side, Aurora is the Sea World side. There is no jurisdiction called "Geauga Lake."

There is no city/village called Geauga Lake.  The surrounding cities are...Solon, Bainbridge, and Aurora.

One problem about the new coaster that you are not hearing about is that there is concern amongst the animal caretakers that a coaster and the crowds/noise it produces would cause a great deal of stress on the sea life and other animals.

I know other parks have animals and rides but I would be curious to hear how they handle that!

P>t Six Flags Marine World, Medusa is so ultra-quiet I think the new SFWo coaster, if the track is filled with sand, would not harm the animals on the Life side.  /P>
P>Now I don't know how they would handle Raging Wolf Bobs, which is also located along that certain path./P>

It seems that BGT has no problems with animals being effected by the noise of Montu, Kumba, and Gwazi.  Both B&M coasters are not filled with sand.

So I think SFWoA  shouldn't have any problem with a coaster on the Wildlife Side of the Park.

If the new ride would be built by B&M, and honestly we don't know if that would be the case, I'd fly out the nearby residents (the real issue in this case) out to Dorney and have them sit next to Talon. Mind you, it doesn't block the screams, but without hearing the ride you wouldn't know what they were screaming about unless you saw them.
