Mark Rosenzweig Posted November 21, 2012 Share Posted November 21, 2012 This is definitely a loss. In a way, it was almost like a cult coaster, provided a great ride but not too many people knew about it. I too felt that the "stand-alone" aspect of it was a bit odd, but at least I had a chance to ride it. It shall be missed. -Gary T. The three times I went to ride DBH were all on Saturdays in December, when working for Zamperla and visiting clients set up nearby at the Winter Carnival. All three times I paid the ludicrously low unlimited rides pass for the coaster (in the $10-$15 range- a real bargain considering I believe they were asking $6 for a single ride) and rode 7-10 times. Many laps I was the only one on the train. DBH was in many ways the sister ride to SFGAm's Viper (same designer). Built well, great douglas fir track that held up even through Florida's intense climate (compared to Gwazi) and ran 5 car PTC trains with the 3 bench coaches. This type of ride would fit like a glove at parks like DelGrosso's, Western Playland, etc. All in all, a real shame. The feasibility study surely showcased the 100,000 cars that pass the site on I-95. What many don't realize is car traffic does not equal foot traffic. Especially when the overall park is so underwhelming. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
