This weekend, guests and coaster enthusiasts were given a sneak-peek at what Sidewinder’s new trains will look like. From all the personal opinions I’ve heard over the weekend, it seems that everyone is eager to ride it.
When is ironic about this is that over the past few years, the ride has been suffering from giving riders so many headaches and with the park trying to fix this season after season, it looks like they have finally came to the decision to purchase a brand-new train from Vekoma, which are considered to give a more pleasurable riding experience.
No official re-opening date has been announced so far, but it is guessed that it will be May 6th, the opening day for the summer season.
For 2011, Sidewinder also celebrates it’s 20th birthday making this a nice birthday present for the ride. As in the words of it’s opening slogan, “Sidewinder: Coiled and Ready to Strike… Again”. Hopefully it’s venom this time around will produce more adrenaline, than headaches.
