Darien Lake today unveiled plans for a brand new Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter, a clone of Iron Shark at Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier in Texas. However, in order to place the unnamed Euro-Fighter, the Thunder Rapids log flume will be removed for the vertical-drop coaster.
The project, that has been titled ‘2018 Potential New Ride’, has not yet been confirmed by the Genesee County Planning Board. A request for construction has been submitted and Darien Lake expects to receive the recommendation to build by the end of this month.
