Darien Lake unveils plans for new vertical drop roller coaster

Image

DARIEN, N.Y. (WKBW) - We're learning more about a new roller coaster that could be coming to Darien Lake Theme Park in the summer of 2018.

Planning documents submitted to the Genesee County Planning Board show the Thunder Rapids log ride would be demolished to make space for the new coaster, which takes riders down a large vertical drop.

The coaster is still in its planning stages, and hasn't been named yet. But planning board members have been reviewing plans and will give their recommendation to the Town of Darien at the next meeting on November 9th.

The county's planning director called the new roller coaster one of the biggest investments the theme park has made recently, and the biggest roller coaster since the Ride of Steel debuted in 1999.

In documents submitted to the Planning Board, Darien Lake Holdings describes what they're calling the '2018 Potential New Ride'. While the name of it was not disclosed, park officials write that the, "size, scope and family thrill level will entice families all over the Northeast...and Canada to visit Darien Lake."

The park's general manager also explains that the new ride will improve and sustain audiences from Buffalo and Rochester, and also drive more tourism to Genesee County.

It's likely Darien Lake will have a final answer from the town on whether to move forward with the project within a month.

Cool! I kinda wish it wasn't a clone and had a longer layout, but I'm guessing this park doesn't get much traffic.

Yeah it's a clone, but it looks decent and it's better than them buying another turd like that motorbike.

The ride has been officially announced! It will be called Tantrum.



Darien Lake Theme Park will open a new coaster, Tantrum, in May 2018. This latest capital investment is a nearly $5 million addition to the park.
Tantrum riders will embark on a 98-foot vertical lift at a 90-degree angle – straight up the coaster’s first hill. In a matter of seconds, upon reaching its apex, the train plummets into a 97-degree drop and pretzel inversion. Reaching speeds of 52 mph, the coaster snakes through the structure over a bunny hop, keeps riders wondering which way is up or down during an Immelman turn and finishes with a tilted loop.
Tantrum will be the park’s seventh coaster. Its signature beyond-vertical drop offers a thrilling, unique experience that has not previously been offered to park guests. It’s the first of its kind in New York State and Ontario, Canada.
“This ride confirms our status as New York State’s Coaster Capital and our commitment to providing guests with cutting-edge experiences,” said Chris Thorpe, general manager.
With the announcement of this coaster, Darien Lake has reduced the price of 2018 season passes for the holidays. Currently, season passes are on sale for $59.99, the lowest price of the season. On top of unlimited visits in 2018, pass holders receive free parking, free and discounted tickets for friends, exclusive pre-sale concert ticket access, lodging deals, and in-park discounts. Additionally, extra free tickets for friends, a 2018 souvenir mug with $1.49 refills and a limited edition Tantrum souvenir will be available to pass holders who purchase and visit before Memorial Day 2018.
For more information about the park or to purchase a season pass, visit DarienLake.com.

Yeah the colours are a lot more subtle, do Gesrstlaur usually have seatbelts? I don't recall them on Karacho or Karnan...

I think B&M hypers/gigas are the only large scale rides that get away with no seatbelts nowadays.

Wait... they had an "accidental" death on Superman. And now they're building a Gerstlauer?
