Wild West World Discussion Thread

Postby chris70 » Tue Apr 10, 2007 8:21 am

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at the former Wild West World, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.


Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!

The flume is probably 30-45 ft. tall, and the coaster is something like 45 feet tall. The top speed of the coaster is 30 MPH or so. :lolr:

Yeah, there doesn't seem to be all that much to draw me to this park. I mean, the frisbee and the diablo look fun, and the log flume and spinning coaster should be alright, but other than that, the place doesn't look like all that much. It just doesn't have that overall quality or atmosphere that you would hope from a park that size, what with all its lower-case rides and steel buildings with facades. I would go though, if I were closer, I just don't think it's worth a 2-3 hour drive. Would it be if I went to Joyland as well?

Btw, anyone have any new pics of the place?

Yeah, it would be well worth the trip to both, so you don't have to come back until '09 when they get their coaster! :lolr:

Oh come on. They are getting Flying Scooters so the park can't be all that bad. ;)
