Hearing that the family coaster mentioned in the article below slated for the Wildlife World Zoo in Phoenix has started.

Anyone local that can confirm?

It's a Chance Rides Big Dipper Family Coaster they are installing.

Just got some construction photos in! If there is one thing Arizona could use is more coasters! The new expansion at the zoo will include a few different family rides with the coaster being a main draw. Sounds like an exciting project for the park! Here is the info they sent me:

We are currently underway with building the new roller coaster as well as several other attractions, including the vertigo swing ride, soaring eagle and flying scooters. The coaster is going to be a Chance Family Coaster and has just begun construction. We hope to have the new Adventure Land area of the zoo open by early 2016.

Great to see a new installation like this coming to such a unique location! I can't wait to see how the finished product looks in the park and how they integrate it into their theming (if they have any).

Can't wait for another ride like Lightning Run to be built!

Chance's Lightning Run at Kentucky Kingdom turned out well, so I'm curious about this project.

This is more of a family coaster - a "Big Dipper" model.

So, it's like those Wile E. Coyote Canyon Blasters rides at Six Flags in Texas and Georgia? Sounds good--they are better than your average kiddie coaster.
