Cypress Gardens Prepares Starliner for 2007 Season
JohnnyUpsideDown has posted construction photos of Cypress Gardens’ new wooden roller coaster, the Starliner. In its previous life it was located at the Miracle Strip Amusement Park in Panama City, FL. It was located at the Miracle Strip from 1963 to 2004. Starliner will be the park’s sixth coaster.
Starliner joins a collection of family and kiddie attractions like wild mouse coasters and junior steel and wooden coasters. This is probably a smart business model when you’re located smack dab between Tampa (Busch Gardens Africa) and Orlando (Islands of Adventure, Sea World, Disney). They might as well leave the thrills to the larger parks. See the photos here.
Thanks to bobg for finding this onride video of Starliner:
