Worlds of Fun's Ever Growing 2011 Expansion

World's of Fun has announced yet another new ride for their Planet Snoopy, this time named Sally's Swing Set.  The park previously announced their $5 million 2011 expansion including Planet Snoopy, but then re-announced an even bigger $8 million expansion including Geauga Lake's former carousel.

Sally's Swing Set looks like it will be a newer ride from Zamperla, known as a Happy Swing.  The company premiered the attraction at Luna Park this past summer.  12 riders will sit aboard the swing and gently glide up to 17 feet in the air.  Here's a photo of the attraction at Luna Park:

The ride looks like it'll be a great fit in Worlds of Fun's Planet Snoopy - and it bring the total number of new rides there to 7.  The whole park will see 8 new rides, when you include the new Carousel.

As if all this weren't enough, the park is also creating a brand new Festhaus catering area that will be able to handle large picnics at Worlds of Fun.
