In 2009 we saw a major decline in the amount of coasters opening across.  The globe, very few opened this year and due to the economy, you can expect a similar occurance for next year.  However this isn’t stopping the parks as they are just now getting more creative with their additions.  Cedar Point added the Star Light Expierence which provides great entertainment for a relatively low costs for the park, Six Flags is now popularizing the Glow in the Park Parade, and shows are also being added as an alternate way to bring guests in without adding a major, costly coaster.  But let’s take a look at what we have for the parks so far:

Carowinds – B&M Hyper coaster

King’s Dominion – Intamin Giga Coaster

Holiday World – Wildebeest

Dollywood – Adventure Mountain

Kennywood – New Premier LSM Coaster
