Every square inch is being put to use in the footprint for Silverwood Theme Park’s new roller coaster.
“It’s tight,” said Jordan Carter, Silverwood’s director of marketing, standing last week on a slab of concrete where parkgoers will line up for “Stunt Pilot,” the park’s first new coaster in 13 years. He motioned a few feet away to a single rail of steel jutting upward to what will be a 100-foot plummet, which will be separated from those on the ground by fencing. “This right here, this is our first drop. You can reach out and pretty much almost grab this.”
