Did the Herschends Buy Sidewinder?
« on: October 23, 2007, 06:25:07 PM »
It's been reported by some that the Herschends have bought the Sidewinder from the defunct Wild West World amusement park in Wichita. The Sidewinder is the Moser version of a frisbee. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Herschends did buy it, as it would fit in at any of their parks. Hell, last year SDC almost got a frisbee, albeit it was going to be a Huss model.

CC already has a frisbee, but it wouldn't technically look that bad if SDC got one... then again, SDC would do better with a full Huss model. This'll probably go to WA if the Herschends have indeed bought it.

Anyone know more?

I assume, unless there's something special planned for Christmas.

Hmmm, if Thrillnetwork is right, the Herschends did indeed buy the Sidewinder. I still say, however, that it will go to WA, as CC has a frissbee already, and SDC would get a larger model from Huss. It would be a huge mistake to put it into SDC for capacity reasons alone. Then again, they might replace the Fireball at CC with this... but it would make the most sense for WA to get it.

Well, it looks like WA will get the Sidewinder. That's OK though, they could use another good-quality thrill ride there.
