Darien Lake’s MotoCoaster Gets a New Name
Darien Lake, near Buffalo, NY, is building the first Zamperla MotoCoaster. This week, the park announced a new name for its first new coaster in nine years. Named after the popular reality show, the ride will be known as the Orange County Choppers MotoCoaster. The partnership makes sense. Especially when you consider that the show is based in Orange County, upstate New York, not ‘The OC’ in Cali like many think. The Teutuls are even going to design a custom bike that will be on display at Darien Lake.
Instead of standard seats, the trains will contain rows of bikes. Aside from the interesting riding position, the OCC MotoCoaster will feature a 38 mph launch via a flywheel system. More on the OCC MotoCoaster including a video.
