It shouldn't be too long until Cedar Point announces theirs. No, really. I'm being serious.
Two 40-seat models were bought by Cedar Fair from S&S to be introduced for the 2006 season; one down two to go! And seeing how Dorney Park and Knott's already have their own Screaming Swings (albeit 8-seater versions) and Worlds of Fun and Geauga Lake already announced their 2006 additions, (and Michigans Adventure just fell off the map pretty much) I think it's almost all but confirmed and safe to say that the second one going to the Point!
On other Screaming Swing news, does anybody know if the 32-seater versions going into Kennywood and Lake Compounce are going up yet?
" seeing how Dorney Park and Knott's already have their own Screaming Swings (albeit 8-seater versions) and Worlds of Fun and Geauga Lake already announced their 2006 additions"....
Where are the official documents for the WoF and GL additions for 2006? As fas as I know anything can happen to any of the parks, and why would Cedar Fair announce the Screaming Swing at Valleyfair, before Cedar Point?
Looks like a lot of fun to me. I'm not all that keen on going upside-down. I don't mind it, it just doesn't do much for me....that is unless I'm being thrown around at the same time, say, like on a Zipper.
So when's the giant version of the Zipper coming out Chance?
Does Valleyfair not have anymore room for expansion - or was Northern Lights not economically beneficial to the park? Based on the first answer, in the next three to five years, I think it would be safe to say that Cedar Fair will install a new coaster --> what would be logical for them to build and where would be the most logical place to do this? If this question cannot be solved via logic based on fact and requires the use of the crystal ball that I know you all have, lo siento. *** This post was edited by coasterMNguy... 9/23/2005 9:05:42 PM ***
I take this as CP won't get one now. CF doesn't usually add the same type of ride into two of their parks at the same time. If CF sees this ride to be main attraction at a smaller park, I don't think CP would get one.
Their marketing the crap out of their new ride with the blog and all, so I'd think they're going to see something a bit bigger.
I think that the 6 million figure is probably including all the other various minor additions next year. Stuff like more concrete, street lights. Also, site prep costs could be high for this one, it looks like they will be removing part of the pond, and they have a large de-watering operation throught the site. Just a thought.
Man, are flat rides getting expensive! This looks like a great ride, but $6 million? MaxAir at CP was $6-7 million. Timber Tower at Dollywood is costing $6.5 million. Bizarre, when you can build a wood coaster for less.
"(and Michigans Adventure just fell off the map pretty much)"Why would you say that KaRaX?Michigan's Adventure was sighted as having another large increase in attendance this year. Plus, if I remember correctly, they got a deal worked out with the water issue. I wouldn't be surprised to see a new ride located there. *** This post was edited by Natas 9/24/2005 4:01:04 PM ***
