^Odds are, it could be the Flying Coaster from Elitch Gardens since Screamscape reports that it will finally be taken down and refurbished this year.

I dont know if I'd be so fast to get a motocoaster until Zamperla figures out the demolition derby thing.

Regarding the Flying Coaster, I'm not surprised as it was in the original animation that Luna Park released. I agree the coaster blows and a Moto Coaster would have been a better choice for the same size footprint. I still hold out hope for the 4th coaster.

As for the Freakshow Event, I'll do it Saturday for only $10.

Ha, good point. Presumably that will get worked out. Maybe they could put in a Vekoma motorbike temporarily to tide people over.

If you watch the video here,

The Volare you see at the end is far from an ordinary one. So perhaps they're planning (or planned) to but in one with a whole new layout.

I'm gonna defend this because I feel that the Volare concept is good. The problem with the Volare rides so far is that the track layout is really far too aggressive especially in the transitions into corners. With a more relaxed layout the ride could really shine IMHO. I really thought that the first dip out of the station on the Volare was a better sensation than that you get on the Vekoma and B&M flyers. If they could give riders more of that without the insane transitions which rattle your head it could be a fun ride.

Of course all of this is assuming they don't make the same mistakes again... Well and that it is a custom design verses the standard layout.

People are saying that they are hoping there will be a motocoaster...but if you watch the animation, at the end, intertwined with the Volare, it shows one. So it seems the motocoaster is a done deal. If I recall correctly, Screamscape had a link to a video that showed the construction of the actual cars for the motocoaster. I'll try to find it.

EDIT:
Seems EG's The Flying Coaster is moving to Coney Island...sorry no new model. :(

Here is the link that shows the motocoaster cars. Lets hope it's not a Pony Express Clone :roll:
