OWA Foley Alabama Amusement/Theme Park!

Postby flagrockerthegreat » Thu Nov 03, 2016 8:42 am

Hello there, this about the new Amusement park coming to Foley Alabama. It's in complete good progress except it'll open in Phases along with a Entertainment Strip. (which Gulf Shores has one) First Phase is the strip, second theme park, third water park maybe? the open date of first phase. is in 2017. Also we will be getting a Euro Fighter by the looks of the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VgZyobvwwc

^The coaster shown isn't a Eurofighter, its a Zamperla Thunderbolt.

I haven't been on Thunderbolt but I have only heard terrible things and am surprised any park would get one instead of a similarly priced attraction from a different manufacturer.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Thunderbolt had a really brutal shuffle at the top of the vertical loop, but other than that I really enjoyed the ride.

RCDB has another Zamperla coaster listed for the park. It may be a multi ride deal or a complete Zamperla ride showcase like Luna Park. If you're spending 10M, the quoted cost of Thunderbolt at Luna, than a Euro fighter with comparable price, is a better coaster. That's why I speculate it's a Zamperla ride showcase deal.ie...Air Race, Electro Spin, Drop Tower, Midi Discovery, Mega Disko, Endeavor, Vertical Swing, etc... Zamperla actually did a pretty good job with Luna. major upgrade with the all Zamperla rides compared to what it was before.

Interesting. I have only heard terrible things even though it looks like a really good ride. I was just in NYC and did Rye and every park in New England but didn't have time to hit Coney Island unfortunately. Looking forward to giving Thunderbolt a try next time I am up there.

Spinning wild mouse or just a wild mouse.

This park already has footers

Quite the surprise for the Redneck Riviera. Which begs the question, what happened to the proposed Blue Collar Park by Jeff Foxworthy for the Foley area.

Nevermind, this once was the Blue Collar project

I will add that it could be dependent on the cars or something. Myself and the 2 others in my group really liked the ride (we had one ride, same car), but those who rode the next day found it uncomfortable.
