Cool aerial photograph that Alabama Adventure posted just in case anybody wanted to see it. Pretty cool to see how the park has changed in recent years. Especially since 2018. 

The park does seem to be off to a great start attendance wise. Seems like every post on Facebook people talk about the crowds and the park recently announced they will be capping attendance on Saturda

^According to RCDB Rampage cost 4.3mil in 1998 or about $6.9 mil today adjusted for inflation.   I'll throw out my arbitrary "fingers crossed for a new gen Vekoma" post here..    One day it'll ha

I hate to be a jerk but can someone post a trip report. I just want to hope the park is dying and they realize how closing Rampage was a dumb idea.

I will say I have been surprised somewhat at how things have gone this year. Sure there are plenty of people that are upset, but the crowds have been decent so far, IMO.

 

Yeah, the water park has always been crowded..so that's no big surprise but they never bothered to add anything new to the dry park and what they did have they let get run down and broken with the exception of buzz saw falls wich they only had for half a season they really need to reconsider selling it and find away to make it more accessable and improve the rapids ride instead of just pretending they are not there..any body with common sense should see that those are worth keeping especially if the focus now is only water rides

The problem with opening Buzzsaw/Gorge is they are so far away from all of the waterpark attractions. Plus I have always hated everything about Wild River Gorge so I actually enjoy seeing it closed

Yeah, I know WRG sucked but you would think they would want to take advantage of it maybe spruce it up with some themeing or redesign it so you actually get wet.since they will be saving money on closing the dry side. I still don't understand what they plan on doing with all the extra land and buildings that aren't being used, seems kinda dumb to let that stuff just rott away.

They really are gonna have to add more exciting rides to bring back loyal customers the new things being Added are retarded and look like law suites waiting to happen..do they really think adding a wet jungle gym and Zip line are gonna take the place of the rampage? I really hope they have something better in store.

WRG shouldn't open again just based on how it operates. Bulldoze it and pretend it never happened.

 

I am really interested in how that new water ropes course operates. They use the exact same harnesses and equipment that I have used before and it was strictly stated that the harnesses should not be used in rain or wet conditions and they should never be soaked.

Good thing they linked to a handheld POV of Rampage. About as good as watching a cellphone video from the front row of a Metallica concert.

According to their Facebook page, they are making Zipline free.

 

Of course, I chimed in at was a stupid idea that was (not those exact words) because they don't know what their bottom line for the season is on it yet, since it's new.

I recently went to the park (June 30). I was able to see their new Zip Line and water maze. The water maze looked like it would be a lot of fun. Lots of water can be sent in many places to get you wet, and there is even two water guns on a viewing platform above the maze so viewers can squirt water at people in the maze.

I didn't get to try it. I only had 3 hours in the water park and I used up all that time photographing the park for a website I own.

 

As for the zipline:

I don't know what the price was originally, but I don't know if I'd want to pay a certain fee to do this either. No offence, just my opinion.

 

Edit: Just read through a few pages back and noticed that you people are looking for a trip report. If you can give me time, I can write one up of my visit on June 30th. It'll include the POV's I shot of the slides, which I received full written permission from management to so.

I was expecting a zipline from one of the large hills around the park, not a trailer mounted unit that looks as exciting as the Lifetime Network.

It looks duller than the Lifetime Network. At least I get Jennifer Love Hewitt in "Female Underwear"

These comparisons are going completely over my head... it was clever when it was used a few pages back, but I think you can stop now.

 

Also keep in mind the photo was taken at an angle that makes it seem shorter than it really is (still, the line isn't very long). The thing about the zipline is it's location. It's the furthest attraction from the water park, and the first ride when you enter the park. And when I did enter the park, I missed it completely due to it being behind those buildings.

^ And then the waterpark closes and they go from atleast something to nothing. Great idea.

 

Then they realize the fault of closing the coasters.

 

Seems to me that if the amusement park section had done more to draw guests, it would still be in operation.
