Coaster/Amusement Park Trivia Thread

Talk about anything that has to do with the amusement park industry here.
Postby JimPanky on November 5th, 2013, 9:46 am
Let's have some fun. Post an interesting question about amusement parks/coasters. The first person to get it right posts the next question. If no one is even close within a few days please give a hint/clue. If no one gets it within a week post the answer and post another question.

If you answer correctly but don't have a good question you can pass and the next person to post asks the next question.

Before starting their own company Walter Bolliger and Claude Mabillard worked for Giovanola a manufacturing company who supplied rides to a well known coaster designer. Iron Wolf was their first coaster they designed but what was the first coaster project at Six Flags Great America that they had worked on?

Bonus question: What was the name of the coaster designer Giovanola supplied rides to?

I think it's safe to say we have no idea. Can you give a clue/hint?

CORRECT!

Spot was called "Future Heritage Theater" so It's a good bet that it's an Indoor Theater

Whoever answers this correctly first gets to post the next question. After this offseason's construction, which park is going to have the most wooden coaster track?

If every ride in Yankee harbor is loaded to maximum capacity, how many people are riding the rides?

I am not sure how many people you say could fit into a Yankee Clipper Boat let alone how many boats there are and how many Whirligig swings there are.
