CJ Barrymores to add 2 rollercoasters.

Mon Aug 10, 2015 5:28 pm

CJ Barrymores FEC in Clinton Twp Michigan has plans to add 2 Rollercoasters in the next 2 years. The type of coasters have not been announced, but some stats have been released for one of them.

36 foot drop and a loop. Nothing is known about the other coaster at this time. My guess is a pinfari looper like what beach bend used to have.

The FEC, also plans on adding a zipline, a 2 story Lazer tag arena, a drop tower ride, and another go cart track with a 50 spiral ramp.

Here is a brief story about the plans...

This is great news as it will be great to have a coaster a few minutes from my house.

Some more info here...

The coaster is being purchased from "rides4you" in N.J.

I'm willing to bet actual money they are the two that Playland's Castaway Cove are removing for Gale Force. If you guys are getting a Flitzer, that's pretty awesome.

Beat me to it. Actually really cool to see this happen. I'd like to see the state put a permanent carnival on Belle Isle next while they're at it.

I believe that Belle isle used to be am amusement park way back in the day. I remember seeing a picture of a coaster on the island.
I also miss Boblo Island as well.

They made a good choice for their first coaster and have an exciting plan. I love seeing entertainment centers enter the rides market. Congratulations to them!

Pretty cool news! That picture of the coaster they're getting is clearly Python based not just on appearance, but the buildings visible behind the coaster, which match up. I've never found those kind of coasters to be that great, but hey: a coaster is a coaster. If I'm in the Detroit area sometime, I'll look the place up - probably as much for everything else as the coaster, but that's not a bad side benefit!
