    Orange Stinger Dismantled

    I just found out that the Orange Stinger has been dismantled. Does anyone know more if they are going to replace it or if they are going to just refurbish it?

    it was supposed to be, along with the mailboomer, and the mouse coaster, but it has become an ignored project.

    If this happens, what will they replace it with?

    i think its still unknown, its all supposed to be part of the broad five-year plan of redoing DCA as a whole and Paradise Pier specifically.

    I do NOT like that ride. I had heard that they are closing that ride and moving things down. That ride is not "friendly" for ever body type and not all that accesible for everyone.

    Well, with the upcoming Toy Story Mania and rumors of a Cars-themed attraction, I could say they are heading in the right direction.

    Maybe they will combine the Pacific Wharf, The Bay Area, and Paradise Pier into one themed area...maybe retheme it San Fransisco?

    It's funny, when I was little I liked the swing rides but when I went on this one, it freaked me out! The whole indoor thing, I think my swing is going to snap and I'm going to smack into one of those bees. I haven't heard about it being taken away though.

    Really?
    last I saw the swings were all off of it.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    The actual ride mechanism disappeared in February, but I was just in the park on Monday, and a new one (or maybe the same old one but refurbished) had been installed, and they were testing it (there were still plastic bags over all the seats). So it looks to be back soon...

    It's a dumb ride but until the DCA rebranding proeject or whatever they're gonna call it, they really don't have anything to put there so they might as well get it back up and running to give people something to do in that park.
