Favorite attraction never made?


Recommended Posts

"Featuring scenes from several of King's stories, including The Shining and It, this dark ride would have featured a false ending. Riders would approach an unload platform and hear a spiel, then the lights would flicker, and a river of blood would pour from the doors at "unload" platform (a la The Shining). Pennywise the Dancing Clown would then emerge from the control booth to attack the riders, who would narrowly escape as their vehicle lunged forward."

I can only imagine how frightening that would be to the GP.

Right because people that aren't obsessed with roller coasters scare more easily on dark rides.

Though, I have heard that Kingda Ka was going to have a loop but it was casted out because of the costs to build such a proportional loop to the tower.

 

And that's how we got an airtime hill.

"Airtime" hill.

 

The Kingda Ka Nat Geo documentary is actually a pretty interesting watch. It discusses the options they looked at to differentiate it from Dragster. Most notably, they wanted two airtime hills but couldn't get it to happen.

Now that would be truly awesome! I can only imagine a >300 ft loop

That could kill us all with it's intense g forces.

Shelley Duval in a wedding dress would be 100X more frightening than Pennywise.

There was a Discovery Channel show about coasters made about 10 years ago,and they mentioned a ride that had been designed called the Golden Gate Thunderbolt:it was a coaster that used the bridge as the support structure and theoretically went like 200 MPH.Any chance of CGA or KBF building it?
