Park Gallery Updates

May 20, 2014 - Danny Miller

Our European park additions keep coming as the 2014 season is in full swing. Today we have five new Park Gallery articles for you to check out, all from Europe. Starting with the Netherlands, we have two of the country's most popular parks, Toverland and Efteling, Toverland is home to great roller coasters like Troy and Booster Bike, while Efteling is home to a wonderful racing/dueling coaster from GCI, Joris en de Draak. Farther north in Denmark, we have also added Tivoli Gardens, a park that has one of the oldest coasters in the world in Rutschebanen. They are also home to the first "Tivoli" coaster from Zierer (hence the name).

Since the summer of 1983, Cyclone at Six Flags New England has delivered more than 15 million rides. On Sunday, the ride delivered its last. Fans of Cyclone traveled from great distances to try to ride the classic wooden coaster once last time. According to The Courant, Trisha Vickers and her father traveled all the way from Baltimore to ride, saying, "It was amazing. We were lucky enough to get the first row, front seat, so it was a very great experience getting to ride it." One man, Jim Hill has the distinct honor of being both the first rider on June 24, 1983 and the final rider on Sunday.

Reimagining the movie’s premise that on one night every year, any and all crime is made legal, the scarezone will be inhabited by average citizens transformed into sadistic felons during this period of government-sanctioned lawlessness.
