This looks like a really cool park and the new ride looks to be fantastic. Thanks for sharing your photos.

I had never heard of this park so I decided to research it a little bit and they have some really interesting things here. I think it's awesome that a park that opened in 1995 has a classic Schwarzkopf thanks to Worlds of Fun and a Von Roll Skyride that was sort of pieced together from the Bronx Zoo and Knoxille World's Fair.

Krater has been testing, but the park hasn't announced the exact opening date yet, although they have confirm that it will open in december.

They release a "trailer" on their facebook page:

I personally really like Iron Shark, and I am glad to see a clone of it opening soon! Looks to be a great addition to the park!

Hey!

Finally I went to the park and rode Krater!. I was actually invited by the park to go and try Krater on the opening day, but sadly I got sick and couldn't make it. So I waited after the holiday because I heard the park has been packed most of december and january, with long hours waits, they were even opening at 7:00AM due to the crowds, and warning people on facebook not to get too late to the park, or they might find the doors closed due to the park reahcing full capacity. So I went last thursday since most schools and some universities are already back from the holidays break, and the park wasn't crowed at all, most rides were a walk.on or very little wait time. Krater was my first Euro-fighter, and I was thrilled, the ride it's short but it packs a punch.

So if's anyone it's interested in visiting the park and need help or something, feel free to contact me, I will be more than happy to help. Here are some photos:

It was raining when I got to the park, so I waited a few minutes and the rain stopped.

Here's the park map. Krater should be next to river rapids, it doesn't appear here, but it does on the maps they hand you with your tickets at the entrance.

There it is!!

Most of the day was chilly, so I didn't get in any of the water rides

Cool sign right?. Definitly the coolest in the park.

By the beginning of the day the ride was a walk-on so I rode several times in a row. They were running one train, I notiec Krater has 3 trains. I'm guessing later in the day they ran a second train.

You exited the ride walking right beneath the the first drop and the lift hill

Operators at the station were encouraging riders to raise their hands. Some riders chose to hold on to the back of the headrest rather than the lap bar which I found kind of funny.

So sexy

You're definitly will get wet on this one.

Went to do a quik checkout of this area of the park. Mostly kids and family rides.

Of course I didn't forget about Broca.

Since it was a bit of a cold day, Broca was running a little slower.

That "rocky" path next to this sexy curve is the tunnel at the end of the coaster. It's VERY loud.

Train station. Have I mention this it's the slowest train ever?

Some kids rides. This area of the park was empty.
