While I'm not saying they won't open a new ride in October, it does seem rather odd. Why open a new ride during your very last month of operation for the year? It would be different if the park was year round. I guess it's possible if they think it will help boost park attendance for their Halloween event though... Either way, we will just need to wait for an announcement from the park.

Well, it wouldn't be the first time. IIRC, their last flat opened late in the season, too.

Well your right that it's happened before. I did a little digging and found that their ride Wipeout, even though it had it grand opening in 2004, was already built by the end of season 2003 and was even open for the last 3 days.

I think the ride could be a good addition if the location is right. I woudl also prefer to see a new ride where they can control the paint and lights. A straight carnival model might stick out a bit too much.

At first, it does seem weird that they didn't add it till the fall. But this would really help out the attendance for their fall events. Also, they could sneak this by in 2013 as a "Brand new ride". They wouldn't have to go through the trouble setting it up in the cold weather and all they would have to do is advertise it as their brand new for 2013 ride.

The only days The park is not busy during Screeemfest is Sunday. A new ride is great but if they are not interested in Screemfest they will wait till next year. So I don't see a new ride giving them much of a boost. Only bonus is if they add a ride at he end of 2012 they can, if they don't get a ride, heavily invest in capital improvements in 2013 but still have the new ride to advertise.

I can back up the confirmation. A sign has been hung on the Dodgems Building and the park marketing Manager confirmed the attraction when asked by a friend of mine.

Makes you wonder what the park will do with the RCT-esque hot dog place. If I recall, that's a fairly recent addition. Unless it's movable, I'm surprised how briefly it was there.
