New Flat ride for Oaks Park

Postby nynehalem » Mon Oct 07, 2019 11:09 am

Oaks Park (Portland Oregon) Has just announced on their Facebook Page that they're replacing the Screaming Eagle (KMG Afterburner) with what appears to be a Zamperla Discovery Revolution

Here is a link to the post on their page with a video of the ride in action: https://www.facebook.com/oakspark/videos/426436424743322/

There's no press release, so no official details and/or stats just yet.

Considering they're pressed for space, I'm not shocked they had to remove something to add a new ride. This is definitely an upgrade since Scream'n Eagle had a terrible cycle.

Huh. Same thing happened. I click, and get a home improvement site. Same one. Maybe it's just my system.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Something here appears to be manipulating the links improperly - it's doubling the HTTPS:// part. No idea why. Just copy and paste it into a browser instead of clicking; that should work.

Sometimes it had a terrible cycle, and sometimes a good one. I think the operators had control over how it ran.

The more I look into this, the more I can see what an upgrade it (more than likely) will be--it's a similar ride type, but more than just a "same but different and new" replacement, one that would also be worthy of a bigger park.

^ Interesting to know they sometimes ran a longer cycle on it. It definitely wasn't crowd driven since Oaks wasn't too crowded for me.
