Great Adventure announces El Toro wooden coaster and Bugs Bunny's National Park for 2006
Just when you thought Great Adventure has had enough big thrills, think again. As a part of a two-ride deal with Intamin AG, Six Flags invested in the tallest and fastest coaster, Kingda Ka and now America's first Intamin wooden coaster, El Toro.Taking the place of the late Viper coaster, El Toro takes riders through sheer heights of 181 feet and down a steep, 76 degree, drop over 176 feet in length. Breakneck speeds of seventy miles per hour soon follow as El Toro then goes through its hybrid layout of both traditional out and back and twisted elements. Alongside El Toro, a new themed section is created as well, the Plaza del Carnival.Meanwhile, the park didn't forget about the kids again. A new kiddie section has arrived at the park, Bugs Bunny's National Park. Located on the shores of Great Adventure's lake, the new section will include new pint sized attractions such as a new theater, interactive water play area, and a snack bar in this wilderness themed area. This section will be one of three kids areas at the park, the others being the Golden Kingdom's Balin's Junglelan and Looney Toon's Seaport.El Toro and the Plaza del Carnival and Bugs Bunny's National Park will hopefully open in Spring 2006. Stay tuned for a ride gallery page of El Toro!
