Story Land’s Roar-O-Saurus Rises
Story Land’s (Glen, N.H.) new-for-2014 family wooden coaster, Roar-O-Saurus, is taking shape.
The Gravity Group coaster is only 1,242 feet long and stands 40 feet tall and features quite possibly the coolest dinosaur-inspired train that I’ve ever seen (take notes, Universal).
Roar-O-Saurus certainly isn’t the biggest coaster under construction. But if it’s anything like The Gravity Group’s Wooden Warrior, don’t expect a humdrum coaster ride. The coaster’s layout is riddled with pops of airtime, including one taken inside a tunnel, as seen under construction in the above photo.
The coaster stands 40 feet tall and will feature a 38.5-foot drop.
Work is also underway on the coaster’s station. Roar-O-Saurus will feature The Gravity Group’s (GravityKraft) Timberliner trains.
Hopefully the track will be completed soon so that testing can begin. I can’t wait to see this coaster in action.
