Timber Falls Adventure Park closing Avalanche for good

Talk about anything that has to do with the amusement park industry here.

via Screamscape, RCDB has added to the coaster's page:

The park has stated they would be shutting down the roller coaster for good this summer (2018). No word on if/when the ride will be taken down.


Pretty sad as this thing was an absolute airtime machine and was one of Alan Schilke's hidden gems. Nothing was better than grabbing an unlimited wristband and riding for 50+ cycles in a row on a slow day.

That's disappointing because I actually liked that coaster. I didn't find it to be too rough when I rode it last summer. A Gravity Group would be a good replacement.

There won't be any replacement. I'm told once the dust settles, they will officially announce they are removing the flume as well (If they haven't already, I'm a little out of the loop at the moment)

^ Well that's a shame to hear. There's goes one of my favorite log flumes behind the one at NU.

This coaster was really rough last fall, but I really enjoyed it's intensity. The banked turns felt very out of control, which kinda reminded me of Voyage lol It will be missed though!
