Kennywood 2009

Postby EastCoastn07 » Sun Oct 19, 2008 2:09 pm

Although there's been no official announcement as to what the park will be receiving for the 2009 season, some regular park visitors spotted some lime green Morgan track behind the abandoned K-Mart building near the park. From what I've heard, the park is replacing all the Arrow track from the crest of the lift hill to the small portion of the second drop which is still Arrow. There's also been some talk that the length of the straightaway might be shortened and the degree of the approach lessened, but like I said nothing has been confirmed for sure yet. All we have is this picture of the track.

There's also some other chatter about some other changes coming to the park, such as a return of an old favorite ride, but nothing has been confirmed by the park yet.

The 'old favorite' would be the Baryn Kurve. The Wipeout is almost completly removed and it is roumored the Baryn Kurve may return to its former spot.

Yes, the Bayurns Kurve cars have been receiving rehab throughout the summer and there was some talk that it would be rebuilt at one of the Kennywood Entertainment parks this season. Although it's not completely confirmed, there is a good chance it will reappear at Kennywood next season.

Either that or the Swing Around. I am leaning towards Bayern Kurve though.

Could the Phantom modifications explain these markings, or do they mean something else?

If its for a queue line, why would the markings say: "secondary bank". Also, why would they need new queue lines when the line rarely makes it down the ramp, even on the most busiest of days? That doesn't make too much sense.

Myself, you should submit that track picture to Screamscape, if you haven't already done so.

Yay, someone used my Photo TR as an example, now I feel famous as well.

New track! Yay, smoothness!
