HodgePodge: Week of June 26, 2011

Canada's Wonderland
CW Mania has a gallery up for "Project 2012." Current progress includes markings and dirt in the picnic area and employee parking lot. Check them out:

Dania Beach Hurricane
According to Miami Today, Zoo Miami may be interested in relocating the Dania Beach Hurricane from  Boomers! to its own premises. The roller coaster closed several months ago after operating for eleven years. This could be really good for the Miami area, as they are lacking a good size park. According to the article, long term plans include a waterpark, hotel, theme park, and more. Be sure to read the full article.

Europa Park has some photos of the progress on Mythos. Right now it's just a lot of land clearing, but I'm sure we'll see more progress soon. If GCI's recent work is any indication, Mythos is going to look fantastic, especially with that Europa Park style...

Screamscape has posted a very interesting rumor about a giga coaster for Knott's. It's a bit out there, but they're reporting a height of around 340 feet and a top speed of around 100 mph. This is very exciting, and I'll be following it closely in case anything else is uncovered. Until then, stay optimistic!

Six Flags Magic Mountain
As Green Lantern opened today, the Los Angeles Times has a report posted from the preview day yesterday. The coaster was received positively, with the article noting that the ride is not quite as intense as X2 but still thrilling. Until we find better footage, check out this test run video:
