A Shake-Up In The Coaster World

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

There's a new company in the market designing and manufacturing rides.

Skyline Attractions features Chris Grey from GCI, Jeff Pike formerly from GCI, Evan Souliere from GCI and Bill Wydra who is a manufacturer.

I'm curious what tricks they have up their sleeves for parks across the world?

Wow, I can't wait to hear what they announce in August! That is a lot of talent behind this.

This will be interesting. I'm curious if they are going to be competing with Rocky Mountain?

I'm wondering if these guys didn't want to dabble in steel coaster design as well, but felt hampered by the "wood-only" attitudes where they worked?
