Adventure Park USA announces new


coaster Located in New Market, Maryland, Adventure Park USA is adding a new rollercoaster for 2015. Built by SDC, the 53ft-tall (16m) ride will soar higher than the park’s other coaster, the Wildcat. The newcomer was previously located at the Old Town Theme Park in Kissimmee, Florida, which is in the process of removing all its rides. The attraction is now in the process of being completely restored before starting its new life in Maryland. In 2014, Adventure Park USA celebrated its 10th anniversary with new rides including the Mini Himalaya, Scrambler, Tilt-A-Whirl, Frog Hopper and the former Windstorm coaster.


Two new for Coney


Island Cincinatti Reopening in May for its 129th season, Coney Island, Cincinnati, will greet guests in 2015 with two new SBF/Visa rides courtesy of the manufacturer’s US representative Rides-4-U. A family-sized Mid Dance 360 ride (as above) will swing back-and-forth in a pendulum motion, sending riders through 360° and over 35ft into the air as the eight-seater carriage spins in a clockwise direction. The other new ride is a fleet of kiddie bumper cars to complement the park’s ever-popular Dodgems, a Coney Island staple for decades. The new attractions bring to 26 the number of rides at the Cincinnati park.


Larson Loop slated for Darien Lake


Darien Lake Theme Park, Darien Center, New York, will introduce a Giant Loop from Larson International for the 2015 season. The 72ft-tall (22 m) steel looping sends up to 24 riders in facing seats rocking forward and backward pendulum style until the train gains enough momentum to complete a full revolution. It then kicks into high gear, completing several more revolutions until it stops momentarily with riders suspended upside down, and then reverses direction for more thrills.


The attraction will replace a ride that's been at Darien Lake since the park's early days, the UFO by Huss. Larson is also supplying Giant Loops this season to four parks in the Six Flags group.
