This off-season Story Land Park will receive a major component of their brand new dinosaur-themed area in the park, Roar-O-Saurus- a wooden roller coaster uniquely built and designed for Story Land by The Gravity Group LLC in Ohio. Roar-O-Saurus will also be one of the only kind of wooden roller coasters in the area, according to The Conway Daily Sun.
The wooden roller coaster will be a colorful 12 passenger train led by Rory “a little dino with a big roar!” Roar-O-Saurus will feature a 40 foot drop, run on 1,242 feet of track, and will feature 12 airtime elements. "This unique wooden coaster will provide children of all ages the experience and memory of riding their first 'big' coaster with mom or dad, or vice versa," said Story Land's general manager Eric Dziedzic.
The family wooden coaster will debut in the park just in time for the park’s 60th anniversary, and is expected to bring in the new dinosaur theme at Story Land. "Our niche in the theme park industry has always been young families with children 2-12. Our new coaster will expand that demographic slightly and add to the family memories created here in the Land Where Fantasy Lives."
