What canceled ride would have like to ride?

Thursday, January 5, 2006 1:08 AM
It's wild when a park puts out a press release about the next season attraction then for whatever reason decides to cancel the project. Was there any ride that you were disappointed to see canceled and not had an opportunity to ride?
My list includes the canceled Arrow pipeline protoype proposed for alton Towers, the 700 hundred foot fish hook drop tower for the stratosphere tower in vegas, the launched 400ft 4D for Blackpool Beach, and the canceled coaster for Hershey Park.

A 400ft launched 4D for Blackpool? That might have been a rumor, but certainly never had a press release nor was it cancelled.

I still don't understand that Hershey coaster. I think it looked more boring than a wild mouse.

Aww. Turbulance looked like good fun.

Then again, I like Mouse coasters, so what do I know. ;)

Turbulence DID look fun, but I really question the *placement* of the ride in the park.

Interesting to note (since we were doing some compare/contrast at the time), the second and even THIRD Screamin' Squirrel from S&S is being built - http://www.rcdb.com/installationresult.htm?column=1,10,3,4,5&order=1,2&model=280
....while Interactive Rides, with the recent breakdown of X-Scream at the Strat, doesn't seem to be doing quite as well...

I was really disappointed that Cedar Point didn't build Banshee, but that's about the extent of it.

Cedar Point DID build "banshee"... it's called "Mantis"... it was only a name-change. The color-scheme, layout & everything else is identical (well, not the sign, of course).

I don't know if it was official or not, but the Worlds-of-Adventure hyper coaster that was supposed to go up on the Wild-side of the park is kind of a dissapointment that it was never built because it looked like it would have been quite a staple at the park before it was sold (IF the proposed layout was true).

Someone missed the winky face in Rob's post. :)

Does that mean to get the 'full Banshee experience' you have to ride Mantis then travel to Dorney and look at the Steel Force sign?

I'm not sure there was ever a cancellation because the ride never got off the ground but I would have liked to have ridden the Arrow Pipeline just to see what it felt like.

I know some people rode the prototype...including, I believe, Dick Kinzel.

I would have liked to ride the re-creation of the Riverview Bobs that was supposed to go to Geauga Lake.

What? They say that Raging Wolf Bobs *is* that ride? But that ride womps!

Arrow Pipeline, Turbulence, Industrial Revolution and the other proposed looper for Disney's America (would have been nice to have a Disney park closer)

I was looking forward to Turbulence myself. I've only seen one on video, and it looked slow, but it also did look like a lot of fun!

It wasn't released to the public, but WoF's racing wooden coaster VAMPIREā„¢ that was to go in Europa that was cancelled because CF:LP took over would have been fun. :( They already had the name trademarked and everything.

I'd like to ride the CCI that was planned for the Garfields park in Indianapollis or one of the six other versions of the Boss the park had to go through before the city finally agreed on the layout.

That one that got cancelled for Hershey park looked interesting.

Easier than that! Just take a picture of the Steel Force sign and hold onto it while your riding Mantis!! Its genious!!

I'd have liked to have seen what the 2000 La Ronde junior woodie would have looked like... It was cancelled cause the park lost many revenues due to the 1999 employees strike. I heard the layout, etc. was done... Gravity Works would have done it and only thing left was to start construction.

The 140ft. tall stand-up for SFA that was in the original masterplan. It was replaced by Batwing:(

I can think of a few:

Although I like our Dinn-Summers version just fine, it would have been interesting to ride the version of the Texas Giant that Bill Cobb had proposed.

I would have like to have seen how different Anton's version of the Big Bad Wolf would be.

Too bad the cars kept flipping over, because Arrow's version of the flying turns that was supposed to go to SFOT looked like a lot of fun.

I wondered why Arrows bobsled never came to be!
