2012 Attraction & Roller Coaster Announcements Are Coming Soon
Is Dollywood building the country’s first B&M wing rider? What will be Verbolten’s top speed? Will Hersheypark be able to boast Pennsylvania’s tallest roller coaster? Does this new teaser image (pictured to the left) for Carowinds 2012 attraction a hint that a WindSeeker is in the park’s future? For answers to these and other burning questions, buckle in and get ready for an exciting next couple of months.
There are a number of scheduled announcements on the horizon. We should get details for 2012 attractions from the following theme parks: Holiday World (8/3), Canada’s Wonderland (8/17), Carowinds (8/24), Dollywood (9/4), Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Six Flags America and Hersheypark. This doesn’t include any parks that might have flown under the radar. For example, if there’s anything to Screamscape’s latest scuttlebutt we may be getting some type of announcement from Six Flags Great America’s on their replacement for Iron Wolf.
