Zinga is in the pink!

Friday, March 7, 2003 9:59 AM
I just added the latest graphic of Zinga to our website -- this time it's not a design change, but a color enhancement!

The funnel portion of Zinga is now two-toned. In addition to sections of blue, there will also be sections of pink fiberglass. Take a look at www.holidayworld.com (click on Splashin' Safari).

Whenever I look at the new graphic, I think of Alice in Wonderland heading down that rabbit hole. Wheeeeee!

Zinga's tower is up and I believe they'll start hanging the tunnel portion next week. The funnel's fiberglass will be arriving soon. It'll be interesting to see them assemble the funnel and then lift it into place.

HallowSwings will go up the last week of March. Lots of other projects are underway, too, including a new website that should go online in a few weeks.

Thanks for your interest--we'll be ready in May!

Wow, last time I checked, construction hadn't even started on Zinga's tower. Great job! And thanks for the update as always Paula.

Rabbit hole, indeed. That's totally psychedelic!
I'm curious, Paula. Are these 'last minute' changes (the color scheme & enclosed funnel) propsed by you guys or by the manufacturer? Either way, it's clear that the freedom you guys have to make quick decisions really allows you to create the best possible end product... I can imagine Six Flags convening 12 hour corporate meetings to discuss a change like that, then finally saying 'Nope, it's not what we originally planned.'

Neat-O. Not to change the subject, but does this mean more head-choppers for Legend? :)

Nice,I might actually try & follow halloswings construction because I've always wanted to see just how much effort goes into putting a wave swinger/flying carousel up.

On a scale of 1-10 this park is a 10 on the cuteness factor.....right up there with Knotts.

Batwing--It's supposed to take 3 days for HallowSwings. We'll focus our webcam on the site.

Jeff--Headchoppers? Us?!

TD--the design change was done by ProSlide. I frankly don't know about the color scheme; Will emailed us the new graphic a few days ago and I haven't had the chance to ask.

Thanks! Paula

Remember, they're not head *choppers* per se, since you're traveling under rounded tubes....they're head BONKERS....HW always has to be *different*...;)

Thanks Paula, you're the greatest...:)

It looks really cool. I can't wait until SRM when I get a chance to ride it. The "enclosed halfpipe" looks awesome with the new colors.

Head BONKERS? LOL, 'Gator. Looks like one could turn black and blue from hitting all that pink and purple!

Looks awesome, Paula ;)
