When will the northwest get a coaster?

I live in Seattle and I'm waiting for a real rollercoaster somewhere nearby. I was wondering if anyone as heard anything about a new rollercoaster planned for the Seattle area. (Wild Waves)

Well, Six Flags was planning a small woodie for the park. This is the link to the article in the news section.


Thank You for challenging TOS: The Ride. We hope you enjoy the rest of your day, here at Coasterbuzz.

You can always go to Silverwood, where 2 great CCIs reside; or you can go to Vancouver BC's Playland (previously PNE) and ride the classic, "Coaster"-- the only Carl Phare creation still in operation. My wife and I (as well as nasai and his kids, and Chris from Chicago) drove up and back from Seattle earlier today. The dude Chris just went to Silverwood yesterday, which is a 4-5 hour drive each way. That's hardcore.

Cmiesen,I would have loved to been able to join you and Nasai at the PNE. I introduced Nasai and his family to the PNE back in April.

I can fix anything.....where is the duct tape?

Thank you for that, Ron. I still can't believe I'd never heard of it until recently. I've been to Vancouver at least a half-dozen times, probably more, and you'd think that I would have at least seen or heard of the the park while I was up there. Especially considering how amazing Coaster really is. I gotta tell ya', that ride scared the bajebaz out of me. There is no way I could ride that thing without holding on for dear life. I thought my wife and I were going to be ejected for sure. Wow, what a thrill. Unfortunately, I was feeling a bit sick yesterday at the park, and it was raining, so we only spent about three hours there. Thankfully the park will live at least one more year, so I can go a full day sometime. I had a great time with 'nasai' and 'chris', those guys are awesome.

I was at WW/EV on Labor Day. The park was packed, as usual, and just beyond the picnic grove are numerous trees that have been tagged; I assume for removal and/or relocation.
The ride ops I spoke with mentioned the wooden coaster, and a few also mentioned a steel one that will travel all around the park. It's station is to be in the SE corner of the park, where you can tell an outdoor ampitheatre used to be. However, don't expect that until '04 at the earliest. It's obvious they need to tackle their parking problem first.
Why more parks just don't take a lot or two and build multi-level garages to add more parking is beyond me.

While parking garages take up less space, I'm pretty sure they cost a whole of a lot more then a regular lot. But I'm no expert. Can't wait for new wood at enchanted village in 03.

84 coasters and counting

The PNW is *not* hurting when it comes to coasters, particularly wood.

Here's what I got to sample this weekend:

1. Possibly a new #1 woodie: Coaster at Playland. Just an absolute classic in every sense of the word.

2. A definite top ten woodie: Tremors

3. A stellar out and back: Timber Terror

4. The wildest, scariest mouse I've ever ridden: Playland's Wild Mouse

5. A classic John Miller that runs the only Prior and Church train known to man: Coaster Thrill Ride.

Not too shabby, if you ask me.

I would gladly trade you all of SFGAm for Coaster alone, but I'm a lunatic and that is not my decision to make. ;)

cmiesen - Nice to meet you, too! Hope you and your wife had a nice day of shopping, etc. after the park, and have a wonderful time in Japan.
