States for Rocky Mountain’s Next Coasters Revealed?

A job posting may have revealed where we can expect to see Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) projects in 2016.

The posting names Rocky Mountain Construction as the company and Pigeon Forge, Tenn., (home of Dollywood) as the starting location. The company is looking to fill two full-time survey positions.


The description elaborates on the other locations: “This is a traveling position. Currently we have projects in TN, KY, and CA. Immediate placement would be in Pigeon Forge,TN.”

Dollywood (in Pigeon Forge) has been rumored to receive a RMC coaster in 2016. In Kentucky, some have speculated that Kentucky Kingdom’s Twisted Twins may receive the “RMC treatment.” And Screamscape named Roar at Discovery Kingdom as another possible contender for a Six Flags “RMC makeover.”

Those rumors certainly align with the states listed.


As of this writing, the listing was still available here.

Which parks do you think will see RMC projects in 2016? Discuss in the comments section below.

    I’m thinking we could be seeing… I-Box re-tracks of Roar (Six Flags Discovery Kingdom) and Twisted Twins (Kentucky Kingdom)… and launched wood coaster Shot Rod (Dollywood). We’re still awaiting official announcement… unless RMC let the cat out of the bag.

    2016 could prove to be an interesting year with more promising coasters. Other than these 3 RMC coasters, we’ll have B&M hyper-coaster Mako at SeaWorld Orlando and Mack spinning coaster Cobra’s Curse at Busch Gardens Tampa, among others.

    I think roar is going to get a excellent transformation because it would change the park a lot.

    I think roar is going to get a excellent transformation because it would change the park a lot. I also herd that roar could be a twin coaster like twisted colossus.

    I did some measurements on google earth and I found that roar has lots of space one big open
    space. And also found a possibility that they might close down cobra to make the drop even taller than ever before .

    I believe American Eagle at Six Flags Great America (Gurnee, IL) is going to get retracked with a steel track, just like Colossus in Six Flags Magic Mountain got! It was built in 1981 and is getting pretty rickety.

    I just went to discovery kingdom today and roar has lots of room and I think that roar would be transformed underground at the first drop then come back around but the drop could be 150 ft I think that would put a good look in the park one steel coaster an wood coaster that is the same height.

    joker look like that discovery kingdom wooden coaster for 2016 might be an expansion.

    I just commented elsewhere on the site that The American Eagle station has been completely renovated to its 1981 condition for 2016. It looks great but the Eagle itself is in terrible shape. Why make a significant investment in the coaster now? Maybe it’s the ride sponsor’s stipulation? Maybe it will get a RMC makeover? We’ll see.
