I really hope they don't replace the old trains, it would be a crime

I deciced to take a detour on the way home from softball practice to get some pictures of Scream Zone's construction on opening day of The Cyclone and Luna Park. Well I actually stopped by because I had coupons for 99 cent hot dogs at Nathan's, but no need to quibble on details.

Of course the sky got dark right as I arrived and the rain started 20 minutes later, so I'm sorry about the quality of the pictures.

The Cyclone is being run by Zamperla/Central Amusements now. It is not included in the price of an all day wristband and you now have to put credits on to a card to pay. I think the days of negotiating with the ride ops for discounted re-rides are over. I didn't ride this check this out, just my best guess.

Here's the view heading from Nathan's towards the boardwalk.

Scream Zone is getting closer.

Track work on Soarin Eagle appears to be complete.

Zenobio - that's really the rides name. I don't make this stuff up. I couldn't get a good view of Sling Shot.

I'm very happy about the new additions to the park! Especially the Steeplechase coaster (Which I presume is a moto-coaster?) and the Zamperla Flyer! I actually rode that flyer at Elitch Gardens back in 2006, so I'm glad I have another chance to ride it. Still one of the few people that enjoy those "death traps."

Cannot wait to stop by this summer. I really hope they don't replace the trains for the Cyclone... Or do any extensive track (No Topper Track from Rocky Mountain) because I feel like that would damage a lot of history in the coaster. But whatever needs to be done to keep the coaster another 100 years, I'm all for.

Jeremie - remind me to ride the Cyclone with you this summer :devil: . Actually, I agree with you about not changing it, but the Cyclone is...well, it''s amazing but BRUTAL! One back seat ride you'll see what I mean. I'll definitely ride it as many times as possible because it is wild, out of control and kind of scary, but pain killers will be in order.

That Zamperella factory that you have pictured in the sign in Boonton NJ is right up the street from Big Mike World Headquarters!

Lots of rides there.


Peace, Big Mike

I must completely agree with this, but I'll take "Cyclone Pain" over "Zamperla Flying Coaster Pain" in a heartbeat.

I hope that they don't over price their Slingshot. I think that $15 per rider is enough for a ride.
