as far as screamscape is concerned Turbulence is the new frequent faller coming for 2005 in repalcement of the Giant Wheel. Guess Giant can sponsor the GIANT FOODS FERRIS WHEEL.http://www.screamscape.com/html/hersheypar
here is the descriptino from the website:
"Turbulence in 2005, the world’s first Interactive Rides’ Frequent Faller coaster. Merging the experience of a coaster and a freefall tower, guests will board 4 passenger cars (with back to back seats) and ride up the side of a 150 foot structure. At the top they switch to a sideways movement path, rushing towards the edge of the tower only to fall 20 feet down in a curving arc, reversing direction and heading the other way to encounter another drop. The ride will have a total of five drops before it reaches the bottom once again. Turbulence will be added next to the park’s Carrousel and the Carrousel Circle area will be refurbished 1920’s style and renamed as Founder’s Circle in honor of Milton S. Hershey. We have a few other stats on Turbulence: Track Length is 750 ft, Height: 150 ft, 7 cars with a 960pph and the ride will be painted Red, White and Blue."
