I do not know for sure but probably under $10 million, probably about $5-7 million, but don't quote me on that I don't know for sure.

After seeing the updated pictures of Delirium, I almost wet my pants with joy. :oops:

Seasons ago I would have to travel to Kings Island and Cedar Point to ride this type of ride, but not anymore. I haven't been this X-Cite-Ted about a flat ride since 2002 when Triple Spin AKA Bad Apple debuted.

I´d guess around $4 million since Windseekers are $6 million and are way bigger/more complex (I´m guessing).

BREAKING PARODY NEWS: KINGS DOMINION TO REINSTALL SHOCKWAVE

Postby certifiedcoastergeek » Sat Mar 05, 2016 11:44 am

This news article shared from LegitSatireNewsNetwork (DISCLAIMER: this is a parody)
-SATURDAY, MARCH 5TH-
KINGS DOMINION TO REINSTALL SHOCKWAVE
IN a surprise move Saturday morning, popular Virginia amusement park Kings Dominion announced that it will reopen the previously closed "Shockwave" roller coaster. The park, which last year announced its plans to remove the unpopular Shockwave roller coaster, stated today that the ride will instead be modified to travel backwards and literally fly off the rails at the apex of a half-loop, killing everyone on board.
A park spokesperson explained: "Previously, to ride the Shockwave, male riders had to accept that they were facing a pretty significant risk. Now, regardless of gender, all park guests can reconsider their life choices one last time on Shockwave's Revenge. Since not all parts of the ride could be recovered from the local scrap metal company, and because of the all-new Delirium's somewhat-intrusive footprint, we partnered with Mondial to make the ride run backwards, rougher than ever, and efficiently off the rails. The new trains, designed by Mondial, will be constructed of cardboard and lacking safety restraints. Shockwave's Revenge will be reserved for guests that pay the $10 fee and sign the liability waivers but primarily for particularly unruly guests. FastLane Plus: Crash and Burn will also be available for the ride. More information is available at http://www.kingsdominion.com/shockwavesrevenge. Shockwave's Revenge is presented by Final Destination 3."
The park provided this rendering of the restored ride:

Typically parody is filed under the comedy genre, though I see now that parody is being used in the cringe department as well.

I've seen furry conventions less cringeworthy than that post.

But no hard feelings.

_Koppen contacted HUSS and Zamperla about 5 Years ago and received the List Price for the HUSS Giant Frisbee at €2.1 Million, including shipping, and the Zamperla Giant Discovery at €1.9 Million, without shipping. These costs were for the ride systems only and did not include the cost of foundations, etc. The main difference in price was the more powerful machinery on the HUSS unit.
