Gosh, looking at that parking lot brings back memories from working at Boomerang Bay... sigh, utterly horrible. Anywho, hopefully the ride won't suck.

Idiot.

The back crushing restraints have arrived!

Nice to hear PGA are getting a Disk-o these ride's are great fun, but the restraints can hurt a little.

Im still curious about this ride. I wonder if its gonna be standard because from looking at the site (zamperla's) its alot that can be done w/ the disko concept like the mega disko!

Anybody have any idea where in the park this is going to go? I can't really think of any spots that would be long enough and wide enough for this ride. The only locations it might fit in are Tidal Wave/Greased Lightning (width is the major issue), somewhere along the old train berm along the front of the park, or the picnic area.

It's going to be over near Drop Zone and Grizzly. (The food place is gone, and they are reworking the exit to Grizz from what I've seen to make room for the Disk-O.)

The new ride is friggin huge to say the least.

Some more info about the Disko 'coaster': Reading a Bay Area Parent booklet at the hospital earlier, in their "Summer Survival Guide" they had an article on themepark safety and what's new in the bay area. They didn't give details on what the ride did (but we already know it's a disko) but it did say it had a "Survivor" theme and it was to have fire/water elements and effects as part of the theme for the ride. Also, they said the ride was like 4 stories. This sounds quite awesome if you ask me.

So what would it take to make this ride into a roller coaster? Would it have to have a lift hill, be a complete circut, or not be powered by the car itself (the motor is up inside that box in the middle)? This really is right on the fence. Comparing to the poweder coaster the only difference is the fact that the Disk-o is not a complete circut. I think that this should be considered a coaster. Unless someone can give some real solid explanation as to why this dosen't count.

Really the only thing that makes it questionablr is the fact that the ride is powered by a motor that is attached to the car. Other than that, it qualifies.
