Coasters & More: CP Has It All!!!
The Magnum XL-200 coaster serves as a backdrop to a Spinosaurus which serves as a plug for the Dinosaurs Alive attraction!

This entire area is being rebuilt after this year as a new roller coaster is coming to CP in 2013!!!
LEFT: You have a total of 4 rides in this photo! Giant Wheel, Wicked Twister, Disaster Transport (building with the 12E on it) and Troika.
RIGHT: Giant Wheel with Wicked Twister hiding behind it along with Disaster Transport and the Space Spiral on the far right. 2012 would
mark the last year of operation for Disaster Transport (originally opened as "Avalanche Run" in 1985), and Space Spiral which opened in
1965. As of when this travelogue went online, both rides have been demolished and GateKeeper, a new winged coaster is being built and
will not only occupy the land both these rides once had, but will span over the new main entrance gates at the front of the park. These
photos were taken on June 8th, 2012. I'll definitely have to get back to this spot next year to photograph the area again!
This is the construction area for GateKeeper's lift hill as of October 12th, 2012.
Finally, here's an artist's rendering of this incredible new ride! I think you know where I'll be next year!!! Especially with another
world record-breaking coaster in the park! Now let's check out CP after dark, shall we???
