--Robb


In the ad it states 8 cars. However, Lagoon's version only has a total of 5 cars, including the one on transfer.

This is what I've gathered threw visits and pictures.

New rumors are coming in that lagoon’s new 2007 coaster’s station will be the parks first real life queue house with dimensions of 62' x 124'.They could also be raising the station so the "under ground" section isn't really under ground It's just under the station. Other rumors suggest that the roller coaster wont be a parking lot theme only that the parking lot will stay under the station and everywhere else it will be torn out. So we have our fingers crossed.

You can find every thing on it at www.lagoonisfun.com at the forums.

I was at lagoon yesterday and the parking lot is coming out now. I wonder why they didn't take it out before they drilled into the ground. hmmm beats me but anyways the tall pipes have been cut to the ground and have been rumored to be the footers. We will see!

I kind of forgot that this topic was here. I went to Lagoon on Saturday and took a few pictures.

This is a picture taken from the lift of Colossus.

This picture was taken from the exit ramp on Spider. You can see what shape and size the station will be.

The whole update can be seen below, I don't think any of you are big enough Lagoon junkies to care, but I gave a link anyway. An interesting thing I saw when I went to take the photo update was the plaque that ACE gave Lagoon for Roller Coaster. I'ts now on display by the exit ramp.

In this picture you can see the rumor for the tunnel is no longer a rumor. This Rollercoaster is suprising us all. :br

Ok, a German newspaper announced that Zierer is building a Tower Launch Coaster for "Salt Lake City". No actual park was named, but could this be the Lagoon coaster ?
Everything matches the rumors and the rendered ride seems to fit the construction site. Especially the trench / tunnel is clearly on this ride as well.

A quick translation:

It will be the biggest coaster ever constructed by Zierer.
It goes to Salt Lake City in the US state of Utah.
It will open in Spring 2007.

name: Tower Launch Coaster
height: 35 m (115 feet)
length: 625 m (2050 feet)
speed: 90 kph (56 mph)
trains: 5 (each one consists of a single car, holding 8 passengers (2 rows of 4))

The trains will be launched vertically along the tower by LSM.
At a height of 35 m (115 ft), the train crests the hill and drops vertically back to earth, reachin a top speed of 90 kph (56 mph).

The ride features a camelback hill (according to the article after the drop, altough the rendering only seems to have a little speed bump), a horseshoe turn, a zero-g roll, an Immelman and a "half pipe" (two compact vertical turns, like a snowboarder or skateboarder would do in a half pipe)

Trains are lapbar-only ! The park insisted on having lapbars instead of the usual over-the-shoulder restraints found on most inverting coasters.

The final tests will be completed at the Zierer factory in Neuhausen (Germany) during the following weeks, then the final containers will be shipped to the USA. A large amount of ride pieces is already on it's way.

The new ride type has a cost of between 4 million and 6 million euro, depending on the size.

The Wild Moues that Lagoon has is a portable version of the ride, and when we saw this ad in Amusement Today, especially with the ride being available after September (after Lagoon's season ends) we thought it *might* be a *possibility* that they *could* be selling it
--Robb


The mouse in question is the model that operate(d) at Jolly Roger in Ocean City, MD. The park is closing to be redeveloped after the '06 season. The ride operators at the park are all independent (kind of like a permanent independent fair). The owners of the Wild Mouse used to tour with Strates Shows, until they settled down in Ocean City about 5 years ago.

I sort have to question how well Zierer will be able to pull this off. They aren't particularly used to building non- Kiddie rides, if i am not mistaken. I haven't really ever ridden a Zierer, except maybe one, now that i think about it, and it wasn't particularly smooth. I think this may be a bad move, however cool they layout is.
