^^ A giant frisbee would be perfect for this park.

In fact, a giant frisbee would be perfect for any park that doesn't already have one.

Same could be said for a Screaming Swing.

I think at the end of the day as long as it’s something on a larger scale such as a giant frisbee, screamin’ swing or star flyer; a non-rollercoaster addition could be pretty epic. All three of the aforementioned rides are awesome spectator attractions on top of being pretty great rides as well. And it’s evident at a place like Cedar Point which has all three. You see people whom haven’t seen the rides in person before staring at them in awe! Especially SkyHawk. Which, I wouldn’t mind having something like SkyHawk a little closer to home! ;) regardless I feel as though we may know a little more come Thursday when they go to the board for approval

A new ride(s) is all but confirmed already...


It will be pretty much made official next Thursday if that article was true. Which I understand there’s a chance it’s false but the writing on the wall is pointing to a rather large addition for the park - relatively speaking

While I’m at it, we have a new article today that Chris Thorpe was interviewed for.

“It’s very hard for me to not come out of my skin in excitement, to talk about what we want to do,” Thorpe said. “We believe this ride, and the investment level into its size, scope and family thrill level will entice families from all over the northeast and into southern Ontario and Canada. People will reap the rewards of visiting Darien Lake and see what Genesee County has to offer.
The ride will be Darien Lake’s first major investment since the RipCurl Racer waterslide in 2016. Thorpe said the project will invest roughly $5 million within the current footprint of the park and be operational by 2018.

I know more about donkeys than women!

Did anyone go to the meeting tonight to give us an Update? If not, we may have to wait until an official announcement is made

Interestingly enough, they aren’t on the agenda. So unless they did it hush-hush, it must not have happened at this month’s meeting.

It says "equipment" meaning new ride, not ride upgrades right? *Edit* The town of Darien will have a planning board meeting tomorrow, will they discuss this new ride?
