Adventureland (Iowa) Discussion Thread

Now this post is getting me really excited. Got another update from the Facebook page and they're trying out lighting!

"Just playing with some lighting concepts for The Monster - this will be a whole different ride from day to night. We can't wait to open our new steel roller coaster this June!!"

Now the reason I'm supper excited for this is because Adventureland hasn't really experimented much with lighting up their rides at night. Before Storm Chaser was installed I think the fairs wheel and SpaceShot were the only major rides to have cool night elements. I know none of the coasters had any before this. And yeah, part of the reason is because Adventureland doesn't stay open as late as other parks do, but regardless this is gonna be fun!

What color schemes would you like to see?

So since the ride hasn't gone vertical yet I thought it would be nice to bring a video back from an In The Loop podcast. This video was released back in July when the ride was announced and I noticed that it wasn't posted here. There's quite a bit of cool information you might not have known about the ride and the park that is talked about: the hotel, lap bars and interaction with the sky ride, ect.

Again, sorry for double posting but I was just snooping around on Facebook (like always ) and I found some unofficial pictures from some guys on the construction team. These were taken back at the end of January so they're further along than this on installing, but it's still neat to see the construction from their POV.

We also get a blueprint for our Monster. Apparently the red stripes on the sheet signify the sky ride that will go through a number of loops and features of the ride just like Molly talked about in the video above!

Isn't January a little late to be starting construction on a coaster if you want it open near the parks opening day??

Cheetah Hunt 2.0?!

Yes, but it's just fine if you want it open by June.
