They're Coming | Mean Streak
The steel Rocky Mountain Construction transformation of Mean Streak is continuing to take shape at Cedar Point, and with the park now open, there's not much they can do to hide it. Instead, The Point has taken to posting short teaser videos on Twitter, revealing stunning new thrill elements and giving us clues to the new ride's theme.
Knott's Berry Farm sits just miles away from Disneyland, attracting park-goers who want a more thrilling experience than classic Disney rides. The park is famous for their wild rides, family fun, and delicious berry festivals. But a new major roller coaster has been due at Knott's for quite some time. Thankfully, that's all about to change.
Last month marked the second anniversary of Theme Park Press, and to celebrate, I decided to take a short break from blogging to give the site a brand new look.
This year's lineup of new coasters isn't that impressive, with the best new ride for 2017 being a small GCI coaster. Thankfully, 2018 is already promising to make up for it, with lots of early construction taking place and some parks even making their announcements.
As the opening days for Kings Island and Busch Gardens Williamsburg rapidly approach us, construction on the parks' new GCI coasters has drawn to a close and the testing phase is now kicking into gear.
While the official opening date for Skyplex has been pushed back to 2020 (due to ongoing permitting), several additional attractions have been announced for the entertainment center.
