While Rocky Mountain Construction has been hard at work installing (or converting) new rides here in the United States, two international parks have announced that they will be transforming their wooden coasters.
Along with Twisted Timbers, Kings Dominion has been giving the Candy Apple Grove section of the park a facelift. The park also announced that it will be renaming two of its rides: Richochet and Rebel Yell.
2018
With every year comes a host of new coasters, and if 2017's lineup was lackluster, this year is determined to make up for it. Here are my top 15 most anticipated coasters for 2018.
Polish park EnergyLandia revealed their plans to build Hyperion, an impressive-looking mega coaster from Intamin.
Legoland
Becoming the first VR attraction designed specifically for kids, The Great Lego Race will immerse young thrill seekers in a dazzling world where everything is made of Lego bricks and they can fulfill their ever-present need for speed.
Twisted Cyclone
Last month, Six Flags Over Georgia announced that their classic wooden coaster, Georgia Cyclone, would be going away forever. In a pattern we've all come to recognize, the park came back today with the news that the ride will return next year as Twisted Cyclone—an IBox coaster from Rocky Mountain Construction.
