Scream Zone Coaster Starts To Rise

Concept © Zamperla

The Scream Zone at Coney Island (adjacent to Luna Park) has started construction on the first of two new roller coasters set to open this summer.

The Soaring Eagle, a Volare flying coaster moved from Elitch Gardens, has started to rise at the site.  It hasn't been painted yet, but hopefully it will receive a new coat before the ride opens.  You can check out many photos of the ride's progress in this thread.

Scream Zone will also feature the Steeplechase coaster, which will be a launched MotoCoaster style ride.  A sling shot and a turbo force will round out the $12 million development.

Thanks for the update Mike. Any idea on when Scream Zone will open to the public?

Not sure that they've laid out any concrete dates yet that I've seen. Just keep saying Summer 2011.
