Alabama Splash Adventure Opens Newly Restored Rampage Roller Coaster
February 6, 2015
BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Alabama Splash Adventure is pleased to announce that repair work and final testing have been completed and Rampage Roller Coaster will rumble once again.
Rampage, a 3,500-foot-long wooden roller coaster, was originally constructed in 1998. Reaching a height of 120 feet and a top speed of 56 miles per hour, Rampage was a fixture at the park’s previous incarnation, Visionland and later Alabama Adventure. When the park’s previous owners decided three years ago to transform the amusement park into a water park only, Rampage was closed down.
Over the past year, the Koch family, owner of Alabama Splash Adventure, has undertaken an extensive restoration project to replace virtually the entire track – including over 1,400 boards and supports – and restore the 24-seat train.
“We’re very excited to bring Rampage back to the public,” said Dan Koch, owner. “It’s a great ride, and it’ll be a thrill to see Alabama’s signature roller coaster entertaining our guests once again. We’re proud to bring another dimension to our park and turn Alabama Splash Adventure back into Alabama’s leading amusement park.”
Koch also says, “We are pleased to announce that our 2015 daily ticket admission pricing is the same as it was in 2014. Group pricing also remains the same as it was in 2014. Wow! Alabama Splash Adventure is a fantastic value for families. We are families serving families. Please visit us in 2015 for family fun and memories”
The Koch family has already made extensive progress as new owners. The owners have introduced free Wi-Fi, free sunscreen, free parking, free tubes, and now Free Unlimited Soft Drinks. The Rampage renovation is only a part of the $10 million in capital improvements the Koch family has brought to Alabama Splash Adventure.
Guests can purchase tickets on-line and receive $10.00 in free bonus cash to be used in the park on food, merchandise or rentals.
