Weekly Rewind 10.22.11

Wild Eagle at Dollywood is already getting close to being completed!  This ride is going up oh so fast, and from these new photos, looking oh so good.

This was the first year for Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Singapore, and it looks like the event is quite good.  Certainly not the same as the American counterparts... but a nice start indeed.

Hollywood Drive-In Golf has changed from a hole in the ground to a identifiable mini-golf course, complete with some wacky theming, at Universal Orlando's CityWalk area.

The opening of Hong Kong Disneyland's new Toy Story Land is less than a month away.  The area, very similar to the Paris version, features three new rides in a larger-than-life setting.

Cedar Fair has promoted Richard Zimmerman to COO, formerly he was a Regional Vice President, and before that GM of Kings Dominion.

It is almost like these Wing Rider coasters go up faster than others!  The Swarm at Thorpe Park has made much progress again this week - the ride is now completed up through the zero-g roll.

Busch Gardens Williamsburg has released a new teaser video for Verbolten, above. For recent photos of the ride's construction, check out this link.

The Hawaiian Falls chain of water parks in Texas will be growing again next year with the debut of Hawaiian Falls Waco.  Check out all the info on the project on the park's website.

In other water park news, Virginia's Water Country USA is seeking approval to develop the park to double its current size in the future.  Think of all the slides they can build!

The old Hard Rock restaurant building inside Universal Studios Florida has finally been demolished.  For something new?  It's a weird location, but perhaps!
