It lists proposed roller coasters, and adult rides. One coaster looks exactly like a miniature Mamba! It also offers a park map, and news articles about the park.

Seems a little odd that their 2 coasters would be so similar to coasters at WoF... and how do you have a Wild West park with no wood?

Did anyone notice that the diagram of the "proposed" coaster, is the same one they used for Mamba?

I'm not sure $15-17 million would touch the list of rides they are proposing.
It's good to see some progress on this park though.

^ Yea I noticed that price point problem as well. 20 adult and 10 children's rides, including 3 non-cheap coasters is going to cost a whole lot more than 17 million.

Yes, I'll take one Chance Revolution, Alpine Bobs, Spinout, and a Zamperla Hawk 24 and Ferris Wheel on the side. That's probably around $2-3 million+, based on the fact that you really can't get many major flat rides for less than $500,000. The traveling Afterburner (Revolutions carnival version) that Reithoffer Shows carries has a pricetag of $2 million, but I think that included the price of the custom trailers. The spinning coaster is probably in the $2-4million+ dollar range. The junior-hypercoaster is probably again around $4-6million+. These are just guesses based on previous prices for things I've seen. Good luck with the budget. It's really not a whole lot to work with. I wouldn't expect a whole lot in the building and landscaping department for that amount of money. *** Edited 6/5/2005 8:48:15 PM UTC by Intamin Fan***
