Park News Pandemonium reigns


accelerating to maximum speed as it guides guests through dozens of rotations. “This heart-pounding new attraction can be enjoyed by riders of all ages,” notes Park


T


President Eric Gilbert, “and is the perfect complement to our popular Alpine Fest Area.” Pandemonium, which replaced the Chance Trabant, also brings an impressive light package


to the park, illuminating the area with electric lights that match the twirling motions of the ride. Pandemonium was painted in the traditional Six Flags Colors, Chance Rides’ Jay Aguilar told


Park World. “The Freestyle is the ride that ultimately bridges the gap between children’s rides and the really cool rides they wish to be tall enough to enjoy someday. You must be 48” tall in order to ride, so this ride helps incorporate riders of all ages and provides an entirely new experience at the amusement park. Six Flags did a tremendous job prepping and in turn the process was extremely smooth. They were readily available during all of the testing phases to ensure it was complete success, and it sure was!”


Purgatory Mountain welcomes first ADG mountain coaster


ADG has installed the Inferno Mountain Coaster – southwest Colorado’s only mountain coaster – at Purgatory Resort. The Inferno Mountain Coaster is 4,000 feet long with a 300 vertical drop and


features nine switchbacks and one 360 degree loop. Individual carts can go as fast as 25 miles per hour and the track rises up to as high as 40 feet in the air in some areas. The new mountain coaster employs a motorized pulley that takes carts uphill on a track and once the cart crests, then gravity whisks riders down, twisting and turning on a fixed track. “The Inferno Mountain Coaster is a fantastic new addition, providing one more reason


to visit the resort any time of year,” stated Elizabeth Howe, general manager of Purgatory Resort. “The new coaster is a fun ride for all ages, and it gives you the freedom to determine how fast – or slow – you want to go.”


he Great Escape & Splashwater Kingdom, New York, has introduced Pandemonium; a Freestyle from Chance Rides located alongside Screaming Eagles in the historic Fest Area. Pandemonium seats 24 riders in a face-out position as it lifts, spins and tilts at all angles,


A ride on the Wilde Hilde


Schwabenpark is currently in the process of finalising Wilde Hilde, a new vertical rollercoaster manufactured by Ride Engineers Switzerland. Wilde Hilde is an RES Roller Ball, which was officially launched to the


market at the 2016 European Attractions Show. The Roller Ball gondola carries up to four passengers who are lifted to 20m where the gravity run starts. Then, the gondolas are smoothly decelerated before entering a curve, almost free-falling and driving in the other direction. Riders will experience a gentle back-and-forth swing as well as exciting gravity effects. The fully family-friendly ride is themed to resemble a chicken coop, with


Tema Design providing eight chicken figures dotted around the track. More information regarding Wilde Hilde, including opening dates, is due to be revealed at this year’s EAS in Amsterdam.


WhiteWater introduce online “Splash Factor” tool


WhiteWater has developed on online tool to measure a park’s Splash Factor. The service will decipher whether the right soak factors are being provided for a park’s guests, if there’s enough splash, and what blend of rides will optimise the park’s impact.


Splash Factor has been designed to measure the


water ride mix in comparison to other rides and correlate this to the park’s attendance and an industry benchmark.


“Making a splash is one thing and creating an impact is another - and that’s what Splash Factor helps you determine,” Nathan A. Jones, president,
