I have heard the Intamin talk from Rides supervisors as early as
December. At first (November) I heard about the Crazy Mouse and assumed
it to be true. Then after talking to a supervisor AND a mechanic, they
said Intamin was the company of choice. Then, at Coasterbash, Marie
Riles, a Rides supervisor, said KW would be getting a 2-lift Intamin
coaster. There's a good chance that the rides dept. is uninformed. And
now the Daily News reports (via Carl Hughes) that the park has bought a
Reverchon WILD Mouse. However, EVERYONE I have had any contact with
says the cars will DEFINATELY SPIN, so it must be a Crazy Mouse.
Right? Ah, who knows, we'll just have to wait I suppose.
