Worlds of Fun finally reveals Nordic Chaser
After months of waiting, Worlds of Fun has finally shown off the model of their new ride for 2018. It will indeed by a Mack Seesturmbahn (Sea Storm) ride. These models are smaller family rides that can be found at a few Cedar Fair parks around the chain. While it isn't the more elaborate, enclosed model that Mack produced back in the older days, these rides are still a lot of fun for all. Think of it as a Himalaya-type ride with small pops of floater airtime ad revolving boats.

Dorney's Stinger is getting scrapped
According to NewsPlusNotes, while we did already know that Dorney Park was removing their Vekoma Invertigo, Stinger, this offseason, it will be recycled instead of relocated. The ride was seen listed for sale online earlier this year, but it appears that nobody came through. Stinger was known to be problematic over the years, and its expedited scrapping before the beginning of the season is a sign of no interest for it around the industry.
