Sunday, October 21, 2001 11:10 AM
This is what the parks media manager sent me when i aquired about next year

PARAMOUNT'S GREAT AMERICA is Northern California's most thrilling park
with
more than 50 rides, coasters and attractions -- the region's most and
best
-- all free with admission. New for 2002: Double your fun on two new
rides:
Spin, roll and twist on Delirium (the first of its kind in North America) and pilot your own bird on Flying Eagles. Save the Earth in the new Meteor Attack!, a futuristic action adventure ride and be mystified and
astounded
in an all new magic and dance revue. Meet two new Nickelodeon® friends:
Nick
Jr.'s Dora the Explorer(tm) and Jimmy Neutron(tm) and participate in
Nick
Slime Time: The Live Show.

 

sounds like we'll have to wait another year  for some new wood

Free with admission? What the heck is that supposed to mean? It's not really free if you have to pay...I'm sick of the misuse of that word.

If the Flying Eagles are anything like Knoebels', THAT is cool. I'm hoping Paramount leaves the Stan Lee 7th Portal for next year, Jill is a HUGE fan and we didn't get to it at PKI this year...Delirium is probably a new Huss flat ride, or one of the many other new flat rides this year (catching up to coaster technology advances?).  As for Grizzly, it's a great idea in a great location, but some re-tracking/re-profiling IS in order...NEVER give away any coaster, esp. a woodie!

Oh well, this is better than just a simulator by 7th Portal! I was really hoping for a big time ride this year but I can defently go another year on the current rides we have! It sounds like were getting 2 great flat rides and a good simulator, bring it on! Is this flying eagels a flying scooter ride? I think it might be the flat ride that got taken out last year though, it sounds an awful lot like it! Derlium, wonder how crazy it will be!

Yeah it's frusterating that PGA needs a woodie so bad, and they accually have a great one that for some reason just is horrible! It's to twin brothers at PCW and esspecially PKD are some of the best out there! All we need is some PTC's and substanial retracking and we got a good ride!

P.S. How did you email PGA's media person?

Delirium looks absolutely insane, but I'll have to settle for Psyclone.  I wonder if there's any other Paramount Park getting a giant ride besides PCW, PGA, and PKI?

Frankster, there's considerable discussion going on here already about PKI's new TR:TR, so I won't bring that discussion here...but with the new Paramount park in Spain(?), I'm sure they'll get one too.  And PKD won't be getting anything other than a "non-Reverchon" mouse?  Gotta doubt that too...enough capacity problems with Volcano, then H:XLC...

Wait, then what would be Delirium? Maybe a Huss topspin or something?

to email the medis person i went to pgas media page and submitted a "guest comment." Instead of a comment i left a question. It just happend that they person who responded was actually nice enough to send me some good info.

I too was hoping for a new coaster,but pga is in need of some good flat rides as well. the way i see it pga is just expanding their collection of quality rides.

if we're lucky PGA will theme this puppy like on huss's web site. with proper theming this ride looks to be a smash(delirium)!

It would have been cool if PGA had installed Land of the Giants! http://www.hussrides.com/35bGiantLandSitePlan.htm

My only question about Flying Eagles is that is it an existing ride, or brand new?  If brand new, it'll probably be a Chance Avaitor like PKD's.  PKI has a ride similar to Kneobels called Flying Eagles.  I hope they use the name only and do nothing with moving the ride because it's one of the best flat rides around.

Screamscape.com, who is ,90% right usally, believes its a new version of the classic Flying scooters (Origanally built by Bisch-Rocco in the 1930's) But you never know, it could be an Aviator.

The Delirium going into PGA isn't from Huss, it's the same ride that they have at Thorpe Park.  It's called Vortex there, and I can't think of the company that makes it off-hand.  Here's the link to Vortex at Thorpe Park: http://www.thorpepark.co.uk/park_guide/new_2001.html
Here's another link to the same information on RRC through Google Groups:  http://groups.google.com/groups?hl=en&th=8fe68f6f51ed0aa6
