New Orleans Tricentennial Tower

I'm not sure what to think about this one, but I'll share it anyway.

US Thrill Rides has agreed to work with a developer in New Orleans to create another one of their towers should the developer secure funding (translation: it probably won't happen). Unlike some of their other towers (which haven't been build yet), this one won't have a polercoaster attached to it. Instead, the tower will have spiraling gondola track going up and down.

The top of the tower will have a viewing area and a rotating restaurant. You can read more information about it here: http://www.parkworld-online.com/new-land...w-orleans/

I like it more than the pole coaster. I heard San Diego was looking at one similar too. It would make for a nice tourist attraction.

They pushed back the Skyplex groundbreaking to sometime this year with the opening of the tower happening in 2017 now. With each new Skyplex update, I feel like we may never see a polercoaster. The one that was announced before Skyplex isn't even being mentioned anymore with the sports complex removing information about it from their site.

I'm starting to wonder if US Thrill Rides has moved into a category of creating these amusing concepts that people get excited for and never really happen, which is depressing to me because I like some of their concepts. I'm fuzzy on their history. Their site says they've installed over 300 rides, but I don't see any examples. Are these old rides that they aren't pushing anymore?

Bill Kitchen is the inventor of the SkyCoaster. Wink So they count all SkyCoasters, iflys, and Unicoasters. In actuality, US Thrill Rides has Designed 2 Types of Rides, ifly and unicoaster, all of which they license manufacturing to other companies.
