This is good news, but with the slowing economy I'm hoping they aren't stretching themselves too thin with expansion. Maintaining a profit for 2009 will be tough enough without having too much debt over their heads...

EDIT: Never mind, the flying carousel isn't until 2010... That's better...

I know EXACTLY where my passport is!

Rock...I am somewhat surprised by this announcement as I really thought that there might have been some love-giving to Water-World.

I think that these are great additions for the park tho...they needed a couple semi-thrilling flat rides. A Disk-O and Wave Swinger would be poyfect..and they don't have to break the bank to put 'em in!

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I also thought they would expand the water area next, but these rides are 2 nice additions to the park.
Got Yeti? Expedition Everest does...

^ If you read the article posted, it says the flying carousel won't be added until 2010, so there really is only the disc-o being added for next season.

Cool! That will make it two Zamperla Flying Carousels in PA..

With rising gas prices and the economy, people are choosing to do things close to home. I remember reading an article a while back here in Rochester saying that Seabreeze saw an increase in attendance since people are traveling less, and are not traveling far to the bigger parks.
