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.
Cedar Point fans rejoiced when the park announced that Mean Streak would be closing for future plans. After all, the rumors all pointed to one possible outcome: A steel transformation from Rocky Mountain Construction.
