In last week's Vault I shared the 1996 park map from Worlds of Fun. This week we will continue to look at some of the park's press materials from that year, when several new attractions were featured.
The biggest news of the year was Detonator, a brand new S&S Sports Power double-tower space shot ride.
Here's the fact sheet for the ride. Each tower seats 12 riders and blasts them up the 200 foot tower at 45 miles per hour. The sheet also points out that Detonator was the "first two-tower design" and also the "first at a theme park in the United States." As we are well aware many, many more tower installations quickly were built around the world - including almost every Cedar Fair park.
And how about some concept art for the ride? Unfortunately the image that I received was not in color, but it's still pretty neat to check out.
