HodgePodge: Week of September 18, 2011

Hey all! Steve here. Let's see what's been going on at some parks around the world and in our backyards!

Cedar Fair

Ok, let's add Dorney Park to the list of parks within the Cedar Fair chain who will be receiving Dinosaurs Alive. The list includes King's Island (installed in 2011), Cedar Point, and King's Dominion. Pardon my lack of enthusiasm, but wamp wamp...


In terrifying news, a roller coaster in Shandong, China got stuck in the middle of an inversion. Yeah, seriously. Check out BBC's report/video of the freak accident. WARNING: If you get scared easily, don't watch!

Europa Park

Enjoy a photo update of Mythos at Coasterfriends! This wooden coaster (name yet to be announced, dubbed Mythos currently) looks much larger than the RCDB posted lift height of 114 feet, but, looking at the photos, the drop is going to be intense! As one of the world's most-attended theme parks, Europa is going to please many fans with this one! See a sample photo at the top of this post!


Wild Eagle is about to get track soon, as it is on-site! What's even more exciting than watching this B&M wing-rider go vertical is seeing how immersive Dollywood is with their guests. The park has set up a booth located right at the base of where the lift hill will be and the booth is interactive and allows for guest input and comments about the ride. Setting a standard in customer satisfaction!
