Black Diamond @ Knoebels

Golden Nugget details released:

"2010/2011/2012 - Golden Nugget - In Planning - (5/19/09) Thanks to Ken Jones for the following news report from the ACE Spring Preservation Dinner. He tells us that Knoebels was awarded the first ever American Coaster Enthusiast Ray Ueberroth Preservation Award. Dick Knoebels also mentioned that the new name they have planned right now for the former Golden Nugget is Black Diamond. Before we’ll see it go up however, they need to build a new enclosure for the Eagles first since Black Diamond is planned to take over their location."-Screamscape

Awesome! I can't wait! With eagle exhibit moved, it should make it more popular. I went to Wildwood in '08, looking at the Golden Nugget and wishing it would reopen...The "Black Diamond" should be an interesting ride... :)

I am looking forward to this. My first trip to Wildwood was 2004, long after the ride had closed.

It's a darkride/coaster that operated in wildwood a while back. It's been abandoned since 1999.

I got to ride this a few times in Wildwood back in the early 90s as a kid and it was one of my favorite rides down there, and if ANY PLACE can get this thing rebuilt right and if there's any place it deserves to be, it's Knoebel's. I'm thrilled they decided to do this.

Ah, thanks. I've never been to wildwood. I would love it to be at Knobels. It sounds fun, I would love to try it.

I'm looking forward to this...that sounds like a good fit right next to the mineing museum. I'm guessing it will have a mineing theme similar to the Golden Nugget. I still say theme it to the Centralia fire though...
