Seven Great New Rides for 2014

  1. 1. Seven Great New Rides for 2014 John Hensler
  2. 2. Rides to Anticipate for 2014 2014 features a bunch of great rides to look forward to; here’s seven of the most anticipated. From the shores of Lake Erie to the outskirts of Paris, from high-tech thrills to a throwback from almost 100 years ago, the lines will be long for thrillseekers this summer.
  3. 3. Pipe Scream, Cedar Point, OH Notable because it anchors a newly revitalized Gemini Midway, Pipe Scream is a hybrid coaster and twirling spin machine reaching 43 mph and twisting 43 feet above the midway at the amusement park with the most rides in the world—72!
  4. 4. Flying Turns, Knoebels, PA A full seven years in development, this labor of love for coaster geeks is an authentic recreation of an historic (1920’s) free-wheeling coaster that slides through sloping, twisting wooden track. Flying Turns is sort of like a warm-weather bobsled.
  5. 5. Ratatouille, Disney Studios Park, Paris A ride inspired by the Pixar hit Ratatouille makes perfect sense for Disneyland Paris. An even better bet is utilizing Disney’s leading-edge “trackless” ride technology that wowed guests at Hong Kong Disneyland’s Mystic Manor. Bonus: there’s also a restaurant—Chez Remy—to continue one’s culinary adventures after the ride is over.
  6. 6. Banshee, Kings Island, OH From the ashes of the dear departed Son of Beast, Banshee has risen to terrify visitors to Kings Island this summer. The longest ride of its kind – an inverted coaster – Banshee sends riders through over 4,100 feet of track, with seven inversions and a blistering top speed of 68mph.
  7. 7. Seven Dwarves Mine Train, Magic Kingdom It won’t earn any nods for speed or daring, but the centerpiece of New Fantasyland at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom is a stunner nonetheless. A sight to behold inside and out, this ride features signature Disney attention to detail and advanced audio-animatronics to entertain the young and 
 not-so-young alike.
  8. 8. Harry Potter and the Escape From Gringotts, 
 Universal Studios Orlando The competition for your vacation cash hits a new high in June with the opening of Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando. The expansion features a Hogwarts train that will take you to Hogsmeade, as well as a trip inside Gringotts Bank. All signs indicate that Universal Creative is pushing the envelope of ride technology & design once again. In a clever move by Universal, 
 guests will need a park-to-park ticket to experience both halves of Potter’s world.
  9. 9. Goliath, Six Flags Great America, IL Saving the best for last, our last stop takes us just north of Chicago, where Six Flags is creating a monster of a wooden coaster, with slick steel rails for track, three inversions, and speeds expected to top 72 mph–the world’s fastest. Goliath will also boast the tallest and steepest drop on earth. It’s scheduled to open 
 late spring.
