This year’s lineup of new coasters isn’t that impressive, with the best new ride for 2017 being a small GCI coaster. Thankfully, 2018 is already promising to make up for it, with lots of early construction taking place and some parks even making their announcements.
Silver Dollar City fans are buzzing with excitement over the recent construction taking place at the park. Footers are being poured and a building, presumably the ride’s station, is being erected.
Cedar Point fans rejoiced when the park announced that Mean Streak would be closing for future plans. After all, the rumors all pointed to one possible outcome: A steel transformation from Rocky Mountain Construction.
Over the past few days, construction crews have been hard at work on the now-closed Mean Streak.
Kings Dominion disappointed hundreds of fans last month when, after teasing an RMC Hurler all summer, they announced a…Planet Snoopy expansion. Likewise, Cedar Point fans gathered at the Point for Mean Streak’s funeral last week, hoping for an RMC announcement, but found…a coaster about to be torn down? While it might seem like the parks are denying their rumored new rides, they’ve been subtly dropping hints that all but confirm their involvement with Rocky Mountain Construction. Let’s check them out.
