We're excited to announce the addition of our fifth and newest coaster, Storm Chaser. This will be the second new coaster to be constructed at the park in a period of only two years.
So that we can bring you a truly unique coaster, we have commissioned Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) to design and build it. Based in Idaho, RMC is on the cutting edge of coaster design and engineering and very well respected in the industry.

Storm Chaser will be built with RMCs' patented iBox track, which is featured on only five other coasters in the world. In the case of Storm Chaser, the iBox track will rest on wood, creating the "feel" of a wooden coaster, but will be supported by a steel superstructure. The result is a ride that's smooth as glass, fast, and intense. Because it will have the iBox track, Storm Chaser will also feature many thrilling elements that can’t be incorporated into traditional wooden coasters.
One hundred feet tall at his highest point, Storm Chaser will be the first coaster in America to feature a barrel roll drop from a 10-story lift hill - and don't get us started on the 78-degree angle of that drop... that’s nearly perpendicular! And that's just the beginning. Riders will then be treated to a stall dive, tip-out corner, airtime hills, a twisted airtime drop, a corkscrew... it's truly a new breed of coaster that's nothing like a traditional "woodie."
We've already started building the new coaster at the site of the former Twisted Twins and it will be ready for its first riders when we open in the spring of 2016.
