Where's the Wood?

Thursday, December 6, 2001 1:57 PM
I was looking at RCDB's list of new 2002 coasters, to find that only ONE woodie appears to be planned. Is this an accurate list?

Maybe. It's the only CONFIRMED list. None of the small parks have announced.

You could probably include the new superstition mountain ride at Indiana Beach too.

It's sad less and less wooden coasters are being built each year.  They're the best and I don't care how tall and fast newer steel coasters go, they will never provide the experience of a wooden coaster and I will always prefer wood over steel.

Its not like its a trend that parks are building less wooden coasters or something.  Just in 2000 we got many, many, many new wooden rides.  Its kinda difficult to say that parks are building less and less woodies when that hasn't been happenening long enough to be called a trend (only 2 years.)

Coaster131, that's the one at Bell's (OK I think).  There's also the Wild Wild West at WBMW (which looks to me like Werner Stengel learned a little something after SoB).  So the total so far seems to stack up as:  Two CCI's in the Midwestern US, two Intamins in Europe.  Seems I've heard about a CoasterWorks design somewhere, haven't been able to dig up whether it's a relocation of TE or a new design....

It's so upsetting. Why isn't GCI getting hired to do something? They are awesome! Of course CCI as well, but they don't have nearly as much trouble finding business! I really want to see a new GCI somewhere soon. Hey, maybe they just don't want to build that many coasters...

It is a trend in a way.  I read a statistic somewhere that less and less wooden coaster are been being built every year.  Of course maybe one year there will be a few more than the previous, but within the last decade or two less and less are being built.
