Last week, Cedar Fair's parks made their announcements for next year's new attractions. With Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Knott's, and California's Great America each getting a major new roller coaster, 2018 is sure to be a big year for the chain. Let's take a look at what each Cedar Fair park will be adding next year.
This week Silver Dollar City revealed their revolutionary new ride—the world's tallest, fastest, and steepest spinning coaster. Time Traveler is the first Xtreme Spinning Coaster from Mack Rides, meaning it will be able to complete inversions and launches not found on a traditional spinning coaster.
Kings Dominion has been hard at work transforming their old wooden coaster into a stunning hybrid from Rocky Mountain Construction. Keeping Hurler's old layout, the park has intensified the ride's airtime hills, added overbanked turns and inversions, and given the ride a new name: Twisted Timbers.
Ever since Cedar Point began transforming Mean Streak into a wild new Rocky Mountain Construction hybrid, we've been patiently waiting to hear the full details on the new coaster. Now, the park has made their official announcement, revealing a towering IBox coaster called Steel Vengeance.
In a surprise announcement today, Six Flags Fiesta Texas revealed their plans to build Wonder Woman Golden Lasso—the world's first single-rail coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction.
It's that time of year: Construction is in full swing, leaks and teasers are circulating at a breakneck pace, and amusement parks are set to reveal their new additions in a matter of days. This year, Cedar Fair is making their 2018 announcements on August 16th, which happens to be National Roller Coaster Day. At their first quarter earnings call, the chain confirmed that they will be adding four new roller coasters in 2018, and with the amount of development going on, we can expect a major addition to Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Knott's Berry Farm, and California's Great America.
