HodgePodge: Week of July 24, 2011

Canada's Wonderland
Canada's Wonderland has launched a teaser site for their 2012 attraction. They're hyping it up pretty big; could it be another coaster? We'll know for sure on August 17.

Europa Park
Coasterfriends has another update from Europa Park, where land clearing for Mythos continues. Check it out here.

Keystone Thrills has a new update from Hersheypark, where supports are stacked up and ready to go. Not too much more has been done on the construction site, but they've got some photos from there too.

Holiday World
Holiday World mentioned on Twitter that next year's addition would cost about $9M, and plans will be revealed this Wednesday. That size price tag rules out most flat rides (though I'd love to see a Screamin' Swing), but a coaster could land somewhere in that range. Could this be the steel coaster they were polling us about? Unless they're making two smaller additions, a coaster seems to be the most probable option.

Knotts Berry Farm
Westcoaster has another construction update from Knotts, where Windseeker looks like it might almost be ready for testing. Seats are fully installed, brick pavers have gone in, and landscaping work has been done as well. It all looks really nice - the only bad thing is, it'll be August before it opens.
