Adventureland to Open Only Spinning Coaster on Long Island in Spring of 2015
This winter has hammered us with snow, frozen us with historically low tempuratures and flattened many a car tire with endless roads of vengeful potholes - but at 2245 Route 110, things were heating up all winter long. With the framework of the new roller coaster Turbulence complete, the ride is set to open later this Spring.
While Turbulence's construction may seem complete to the untrained eye, coaster junkies and amusement park fans know that once the lase piece of steel track is in place, countless hours of testing must be completed before the ride can officially open. Additionally, the coaster must be appropriately landscaped before it can be ready for the public to experience. Therefore, there is not a known opening date for this coaster as of yet, in fact, the only thing one can be sure of is that this coaster will certainly not disappoint thrill seekers. As Long Island's only spinning coaster, riders will be able to experience a unique ride each time they travel along the neon green tracks.
The yellow and green behemoth roller coaster has drastically altered the landscape of this iconic park as seen by guests over Adventureland's opening weekend. Turbulence is the first custom Mack Rides roller coaster in the 53 year old land mark park, and it's the tallest and fastest coaster to ever reside in the Farmingdale destination. The German roller coaster designer, Mack Rides is considered one of the most prestigious coaster designers on the globe.
Should you be daring enough to brave Turbulence's first official ride, Adventureland's Helping Hands Foundation is hosting the First Ride for a Cause contest. Participants can purchase $5 chances in the form of a donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) or Nassau Soffolk Services for Autism (NSSA) for a chance to be first on this ground-breaking thrill ride.
