Railblazer's First Train Arrives
CGA has posted pictures of their first Railblazer train arriving. It will take the theme of an ATV or similar off-roading vehicle. I am impressed with how these single rail vehicles turned out, and the colors really pop along with the orange track.
Rockwork and other theming has also begun for the ride, which installed its final track piece a few weeks ago. It'll be interesting to see when this project begins testing, as it is one of the most unique and exciting coaster concepts to ever be created.
Six Flags may have announced their own Wonder Woman model first, but this one is truly going above and beyond what was expected of the final product. Hopefully this spurs a mass desire for other parks to install similar or larger models.
HMB Endeavour being Removed
The Intamin Looping Starship ride HMB Endeavour is being removed from the park this offseason. Along with Logger's Run, this will be the second ride removal. The ride operated for 30 years, and was among one of the few of this model ever constructed. Although Intamin still produces the ride, it probably suffers from higher maintenance costs, and lower ridership over the years.
Despite the park installing a brand new type of coaster, and having an exciting master plan for the future, it is sad to see two ride removals in less than a year. Hopefully this means that planning is already underway for what 2019 will bring.
