New attraction spotlight: Evel Knievel

The $7 million CGI design, named for the late motorcycle daredevil, will boast an 80-foot drop and a top speed of 50 mph. The park promises 16 hills and a track that crosses itself 14 times, so expect a typically wild, woodie-type ride, instead of the smooth, sweeping B&M arcs that many parks have been so eager to install over recent years.
The park is shooting for a "mid-summer" opening date, and the minimum height on the ride will be 48 inches.
