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
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! ----------------- Son of Drop Zone - PKI CoasterCamp I Champions!!!
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!
------------- Not MLK's words but mine..I have a Dream! I have a DREAM! I HAVE A DREAM!I have a dream! That SFMM fans will be able to walk hand in hand with CP's! AND no ONE cares what a coaster is and what a coaster isn't!
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?

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... ----------------- Son of Drop Zone - PKI CoasterCamp I Champions!!!
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.
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. ----------------- Scott W.
