To me, THAT will be the major thing of this construction. I would almost think they would have to build the bridge at night so to not disturb traffic in and out of the state park


It is behind the Pirate Ship, the Sky Ride Station, and Whipout. In the Train turn around area. And down the hill and across the street. And no they have not started on the brige besides some steel driven into the ground.

Oh hell yeah!

I have been waiting for a coaster like this to be so close. Hopefully it will live up to the design and hype.

Thanks, I was having a hard time placing where it was from the photos. I have only been to the park once, and it was sort of an accident that we even "found" it.

Nope, no trophy -- but you do get this nifty button!

I think Ravine Flyer II is going to be a 300 ft. gigacoaster. You can tell by the footers.

Looks great. For a small park like Waldemeer, they must be very proud of that ride. I can't wait to ride it!!

^ Yeah, let's hope it doesn't.


This looks like a really nice coaster, and all of the airtime hills appear to be fairly small, so there should be plenty of airtime. It is great that a small park is building a coaster of this size, and it is nice that this is finally being built since it has been planned for a long time.

Well considering I found those pics and sent them to Screamscape this is kinda old news for me, but I must agree with everyone this coaster looks absolutely amazing. It's been so many years now since I've been up to that park and I never really had any intention of going back for Steel Dragon so its great that the park is getting something worth me going there again. I'm going to do everything in my power to either go to media day or opening day for this coaster because I have a feeling its going to be really sweet. I'm just glad Waldameer got everything sorted out and this coaster is finally getting built. Two thumbs up for another Gravity Group in America.
