Adventureland Announces New Family Spinning Roller Coaster - PHOENIX
Altoona, Iowa -- Adventureland Park announces PHOENIX - a new family spinning roller coaster, coming in June! The $6 million dollar addition will be be designed and manufactured by Maurer Rides from Germany. The new addition will reach heights over 50 feet and speeds up to 40 mph. Up to four riders at a time will board the cart seated back to back. During the course of the new coaster, riders will reach a new level of "spin-sanity" as the cars rotate a full 360 degrees.
Adventureland officials said that Phoenix will "Rise from the Ashes" at the end of the Main Boulevard in a space that was formerly the home of the Super Screamer roller coaster and most recently the thrill ride known as Inverter. Site work is underway and vertical construction of the new roller coaster is scheduled to begin in February. Phoenix will open to Adventureland Park guests in June 2019.
