icon_STOPPark News - (11/24/16) How many readers out there remember the Arrow Launched Loop shuttle coaster?  Only a handful were ever made and I believe only three are still running today (Elitch Gardens, Blackpool Pleasure Beach and Frontier City). To ensure the continued operation of the Diamond Back at Frontier City, IRM has announced the sale of the 1977 original model coaster from the closed Fun Spot park in Indiana to Frontier City.
    As part of the deal finalized at IAAPA this year, the former Afterburn coaster (which was first named Dare Devil when it was first built at Circus World in Florida) will see its Arrow Mark 1 train, launch mechanisms, station roof, canopy and other systems installed onto the Diamond Back coaster at Frontier City, along with an updated control system to extend the life of this classic coaster.
    Other items from Afterburner, including the ride's signage, and other sections of the coaster will be removed and shipped to the National Roller Coaster Museum and Archives in Plainview, Texas.
    (7/4/16) An incident took place at Frontier City a few days ago where the Silver Bullet coaster came to a stop at the top of the lift hill, just before the train was preparing to drop. Rescue crews were brought out to help remove riders from the train, where some of the cars had already past the end of the staircase and removing them was not as simple as just letting them walk down the stairs.
    Of course the later is exactly what happened at Six Flags over Texas on Shockwave on the same day I believe, that caught the media's attention unfairly, as those riders simple just walked down the stairs when the safety system triggered and shut down the ride. In the case of Silver Bullet at Frontier City, the coaster shut down after a power glitch triggered the automatic E-Stop. Everything happened just as was planned, and the ride safely shut down when it detected the brief loss of power to the park.

 

2017 - Nothing is known at this point in time...
