Discussions about individual rides and parks should continue in the appropriate discussion thread, but respond in this thread with any new rides that are confirmed and they will be added to this first thread.


Rumors will be deleted. We also don't need to list every random out of the way upcoming attraction so this is limited to parks TPR is covering (or will likely cover in the future) in the Park Index.

Morey's Coaster

On the ECC’s next visit to the Wildwoods, it may be enjoying a new, state-of-the-art roller coaster. The company is in the last stages of planning an elaborate coaster that would start on Surfside Pier, near the Nor’easter, and work its way across that pier, the adjoining beach, and a portion of Hunts Pier before returning to Surfside.


Interviewed some months ago, when the plan was winding its way through local approvals, Mike Porch, who was then Executive Director of Main Street, praised the new attraction. “This will help surrounding businesses, and will help maintain the Wildwoods as a first-class tourist designation,” Porch said. “It may even spearhead us through the present economic crisis. “There's a lot of competition out there – what’s the best, hottest new roller coaster, and some people actually plan their trips around these rides.”


According to the Morey Organization’s Clark Doran, the company enjoyed “smooth sailing” in obtaining local approvals from North Wildwood’s planning board approval and Wildwood’s zoning board, and now is awaiting a CAFRA permit. “We’re optimistic about that last approval,” he said. “We’re very excited about the project, and boardwalk merchants are thrilled.” Doran said that the multimillion-dollar project will take approximately a year “in fabrication,” and a year of on-site construction.



Heide Park is getting a DM

Un Dive Coaster pour Heide Park


20.02.2010 - Alors que la construction du nouveau Splash Battle Mack avance tranquillement, Heide Park s'affaire déjà à sa nouveauté suivante. En effet, le parc prévoit d'ouvrir pour la saison 2011 une nouvelle montagne russe (sa huitième) : un Dive Coaster signé B&M. Si aucune info n'a pour le moment filtré quant au parcours ou à son emplacement, on sait par contre que John Wardely, le papa entre autres de Nemesis (Alton Towers) et Vampire (Chessington World of Adventures) sera en charge de la thématisation de la bête. Allez, encore un peu plus d'un an de patience et l'on pourra tester le troisième B&M d'Allemagne après Silverstar et Black Mamba !

Thanks for creating/managing this thread, Larry! It's really convenient!


Has Toverland's new Odysseus water coaster been confirmed, yet?



As far as I've heard...no. I really would like to see Toverland get a Water Coaster, but it will probably turn out to be a Mack Supersplash...but there is hope!

^Just so people aren't confused you may want to list Happy Valley Beijing AND Happy Valley Shenzhen. Both are getting S&S Launched coasters. We only have a topic for Beijing's version but there's a mention in there about the Shenzhen one as well.

As always, I look forward to whatever rides/attractions Cedar Point has to offer. So far, they haven't disappointed me whatsoever. I've been to many attractions that have turned out to be complete let-downs, but Cedar Point always promises to deliver in terms of excitement.


Gosh, I sound like I'm a spokesperson for them. Ha ha ha. XP
