Frontier City 2008: Steel Lasso

Frontier City amusement park announced this past week their new attraction for 2008: Steel Lasso. A family inverted coaster designed by Vekoma and manufactured by Chance in the U.S.

The 49 ft. tall ride will have just under 1,000 ft. of track and hit a top speed of 30 m.p.h. Better yet, the trains will use Vekoma's new restraints that do not go over the rider's shoulders.

I like the direction that PARC Management is going with the former Six Flags parks. They're adding attractions aimed at the family more than the teens, and most of the attractions are different things that haven't been seen in the market before.

Amusement Today has the layout and more info on Steel Lasso.
