Sidewinder Recieves New Trains for 2011.

From Screamscape:

(4/5/11) Scream2011_0405_Sidewinder_NewTrainscape sources have confirmed that Sidewinder will have a special new surprise for everyone this season. One of the rockin’ new trains from Vekoma, with the ultra comfy and open restraint systems just like the ones put to use on Carolina Cobra at Carowinds in 2009. Your going to love this train.

As of right now, it is unknown if Sidewinder is going to open with the rest of the park for Springtime in the Park in a week because it is not on the ride list on the park’s website. Given from past experience like from October 2008, Fahrenheit was not on the Halloween ride list, but it was open to the pubic for the event.

After hearing from the successes of Carolina Cobra at Carowinds in NC and the Great Nor’ Easter at Morey’s Piers in NJ, I feel that we may see the lines for Sidewinder get a little longer this season than what they were in the past. As you can see from this picutre, there will be less headbanging and hopefully more space in the cars. Personally, one of my biggest dislikes was the lack of arm-space in the old trains because once you lowered your restraint and you had a partner next to you, there was no room left.

There have been some rumors in the past about removing Sidewinder, but with this kind of investment, it shows that it probably won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. :)
