Something Big Is Taking Shape At Lake Winnepesaukah!

The fun starts to take shape at Lake Winnepesaukah today, as the OH-ZONE! arrives in Chattanooga. The all-new 14-story drop tower is the only one of its kind in Tennessee and will be the tallest attraction at Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park when it opens for the season April 1, 2006.

Two cranes, a 120-foot hydraulic lift, semi-trailers, and a full crew will be on hand at Lake Winnepesaukah through Wednesday as the ride is erected and construction is completed. Crews have already been busy at the park during the winter getting the site ready for the OH-ZONE!’s arrival. “In prepping the sight, we’ve actually moved the Fly-O-Plane ride to another part of the park,” offered Talley Green of Lake Winnepesaukah.

“At 140 feet, this is the tallest ride we’ve ever added,” stated Green. “It’s double the height of our wooden roller coaster, The Cannon Ball, and drops riders at a speed of fifty miles per hour!” Guests who ride OH-ZONE! this summer will get an impressive view of the Cannon Ball’s lift hill as they rise over it during their tower ascent. The new ride will be placed directly adjacent to the existing coaster lift hill. “We’re so excited about the arrival of OH-ZONE!, we wanted to make certain it had a prime location in the park,” added Green.

Once completed, the new ride will offer guests a 140-story freefall at a breathtaking 4.6Gs. Towering over Lake Winnepesaukah, OH-ZONE! will permanently change the skyline of the South’s favorite family amusement park. During the daytime, the awe-inspiring structure will thrill & delight guests of all ages and, by night, the illuminated tower will serve as a billboard in the sky for all to see.

Lake Winnepesaukah Amusement Park opens for the season on April 1, 2006. Construction of the new OH-ZONE! tower will continue through Wednesday, March 15.
