Park News - (1/21/13) Screamscape sources tell us that the Cactus Coaster (Allan Herschell Little Dipper coaster) from Elitch Gardens will be brought to Frontier City as a replacement for the park’s existing Wild Kitty coaster (also an Allan Herschell Little Dipper). The slightly older Wild Kitty coaster was apparently in need of some costly track work or replacement, so instead the park will replace it with the nearly identical Cactus Coaster, reusing the same station and keeping the existing Wild Kitty name. Most guests will probably never know that it was swapped out in the off season.
(8/20/12) In a strange confession, Frontier City has posted on their official website that not only has Eruption closed for good, but a reason as well, claiming that “Unfortunately, due to the ride manufacturers inability to produce parts for this ride, the Eruption has been retired.” I know S&S never made very many of these rides, but you would think that they would still be able to supply parts to maintain the few still running… or was this the very last one? Anyone know?
(7/17/12) A nice photo trip report from Frontier City has been posted to Theme Park Review this week that includes not only a trip (camera in hand) into the park’s boneyard full of old ride pieces, but also the sad news that Eruption is being removed. They report that the ride has reached the end of it’s lifespan and they have already begun to disassemble it. The giant towers of the old S&S Sky Sling will be gone by the end of August, and if I’m not mistaken, this may be the last operating S&S Sky Sling in the country. If anyone knows of another one still running, let me know.
2013 - White Water Bay: Two New Slides - (12/10/12) A reader passing
through their local mall noticed an advertisement posted for White Water Bay Oklahoma City was promoting a new waterslide tower with two different experiences for the 2013 season. One side appeared to offer a “bowl” style experience while the other offered a half-pipe style slide experience.
(11/21/12) FrontierCity411 tells us that the White Water Bay waterpark will add some kind of new attraction for the 2013 season, but really couldn’t say what. Anyone else know more?
