Rides announced for 2006
Well, three if you want to count the slingshot but it's no where mentioned in the article. But I did see a picture of what is supposedly the slingshot...
anyway, the two new rides which we all pretty much knew were the spinning coaster in the north end and the typhoon water coaster slide.
Dancing five stories above the ground, Mr. Six’s Pandemonium will take park Guests on an all-new ride experience creating a new spin on the typical roller coaster. Face-to-face in individual 4-person cars, Guests will enjoy more than a quarter mile of totally unique fun, shared with family and friends. This roller coaster spins like a top while moving up and down through hairpin turns and plummeting spirals. Each ride that Guests take on Mr. Six’s Pandemonium will be different, just like the master of playtime himself. No other coaster will leave you dizzy with laughter like Mr. Six’s Pandemonium!
Mr. Six's Pandemonium will be the first coaster inspired by the character.
Making a huge splash at Hurricane Harbor, Typhoon will offer park goers a unique thrill only to be experienced at Hurricane Harbor. Typhoon offers an extreme 3-person rafting experience. The water coaster’s rocket propelled water and conveyer belts blast riders though a serpentine series of high bank turns, enclosed tunnels and up hill climbs at racing speeds. Typhoon’s technology includes higher and faster uphill sections than any existing water coaster in the country. The thrill of a traditional coaster gets “all wet” with the 2005 debut of Typhoon!
IMO, I think these will be some good additions to the park since our last one was in 2003 with the waterpark expansion.
