Nice to see them adding new attractions, even if it's more kids oriented stuff. Hoping for a new coaster in 2013. I'm not going to mention anything about the name of that one ride. :lol:

I heard that they are also going to move ranger to a different section of the park. Darien Lake saids that all the plans are not finalized and an adnoucement sould be made in March, according to DL Facebook post. Also, heard that there is going to be No show to replace what was where the sea lions were.

Now, I want to know where they plan on placing theses new rides and what ride(s) they are removing, if any?

^^^I'm not sure where you got the info from but this would be a great addition as Rowdy's Treehouse and Moose on the Loose are rides not commonly found in the US.

I assume that anonymouscactus got it from here:

http://amusementgraffixintl.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1651&start=25

Unfortunately, you have to be registered at the website to log in (I'm not advertising for the site; just providing evidence)

To summarize the topic if you are not a member or if you are not willing to register: They are not "official" documents per se, but these were text and images compiled from an actual park survey done a little while ago. The official announcement will be in March. He (username = "good_life") claims, however, that he was told by one of the higher up staff as to what the rides were and he won't completely spill the beans, but he decided to "tease a little" as to what they were since this was technically public information already. He also mentioned the following three things that were also possibilities:

1: The adult ticket price would be lowered to $29.99
2: The new rides would be put near the scrambler (for those who haven't been to Darien Lake before, that's in the south east corner of the park, between Viper and Mind Eraser if you want to look it up on Google Earth)
3: Another unexpected ride might be removed for these additions.


I'm still skeptical as to whether or not these are similar to what they really are. And based on the description of Moose on the Loose, I think that that would be more of an kiddie monorail ride similar to that "Snoopy's Rocket Express" that was just recently put into Dorney Park's renovated Planet Snoopy, but that is only me taking a guess based upon the sketch and the "bigger than a kiddie ride but not quite a coaster" part of the description. Frankly, I think that if these rides were to be built, they would be a great addition to the park. For those who haven't been to Darien Lake, the park has very few choices where adults can ride with their little kids that are in the 36" range. These have a nice theme that I have a feeling will work quite well for the park as Herschend begins to give the park some sort of theme to start bringing it up to par with Dollywood and SDC.

I love donkeys more than me.

If this is indeed what's coming to Darien Lake then I like it even though two of the three attractions are rides I won't be able to ride.

Based on the possibilities and rumors if they are true:

Putting these attractions by Scrambler makes sense since you have the Brain Teaser kiddie coaster right there and even though Grizzly Run is in the same area the creation of a second kids/family area would make sense considering that Adventureland kid's area is a bit small and cramped.

Could the possible removal of Raging Seas make way for a relocated Scrambler and is Ranger on its way out? I can't see them relocating that ride.

My favorite roller coaster is dumb.

Do you think Darien Lake is going to merge the Tiny Trio and "Rowdy's Ridge" to make one family area?

Darien Lake has updated the park's logo with a new look that is a major departure from the previous graphic...
