The REAL Shaggy

In this mornings Enquirer, there is a news article featuring the changing advancements in coaster design and ride interest. It focuses on parks needs to keep thing fresh and ever-changing for their guests.

Within the article, Kennywood once again revealed their plans to remove and replace Steel Phantom, which we all knew. I am shocked at their choice though, it semms Y2K will produce a boomerang by Vekoma on the sight of SP.

They also reveal that SP has indeed been sold and is being relocated to a park in New York. One can only guess by their description, that SFDL is the new owner. The article goes on to describe that SP will be re-profiled to fit the footprint next to an Antique car attraction at the Premier owned park in the Buffalo area.

The article reveals that the park in NY had chosen to add another multilooper with proven success. It states that Premier(the NY parks owners) had persued the addition of a closed multi-element coaster standing idle at a Virginia park. But it says that they were outbid by a park in Buena Park CA who will be relocating it to take the place of a soon-to-be removed coaster.

The final shocker was the fact that a spokesperson from Cedar Fair revealed that one of their recent ride closures proved profitable. They revealed that a "duel coaster" attraction their CA park was unsatisfied with, was sold and moving to a major theme park near Toronto for their 2001 season.

Holy smokes! Can you believe all this ride switching all the parks are doing?

Neither can I.

Happy April 1 everyone. :-)
