It's definitely in a "dead" area of the park. They needed to put something over there to attract people. While I'm not a fan of these rides, I'm guessing most guests will be interested in riding it. The go karts were never a draw, so getting rid of them was a smart move.
^It's something that changes with time as you can even see that some manufacturers like B&M now use fewer supports, overall, than they did a few years ago (leviathan's lift is the best example). Then Morgan also went for the scaffolding like structure on parts of their rides rather than the tubular supports, which also demands a higher density of beams.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch
What does one say after riding a Batman clone? The G force is strong with this one.
I think Steelhawk is a great addition for WOF, but with that being said I really hope our 2015 addition will be something more thrilling and marquee. Hoping for a Coaster, but I know that's a long shot.
It's funny how Worlds of fun AND Adventureland both got Windseekers from Mondial this year. It's also funny how then both of them changed the name of the ride. Adventureland is my home park and will always come first in my heart, but Worlds of Fun is my second favorite. I love going there and they have some great coasters. When I found out that Adventureland was getting a Windseeker back in the fall I was freaking out because usually we are the smaller brother when it comes to getting rides. All of a sudden I find out that oh wait... yup Worlds of Fun is getting one too. So much for getting a big jump on the competition. But anyway both parks are great and I know that WoF fans were probably hoping for a coaster, but I really do think that this will be a good addition for both parks.
Yeah, I used to live in the southwest corner of Iowa, so right in the middle of the two. I am currently a Freshman at Drake University so obviously now I am closer to Adventureland, but growing up It was about the same distance for both of them. Adventureland might have been a little further just because it is on the east side of Des Moines.
