If you’ve been by Oaks Park lately, you may have noticed the gorgeous, scary-looking purple roller coaster being erected on the south end of the park.
At last, the coaster is approaching its grand opening date, March 24.
The roller coaster is billed as an “extreme” coaster, and just looking at it you can tell that’s no lie. Called “The Adrenaline Peak Roller Coaster,” the coaster boasts a 72 foot vertical lift, a 97 foot loop, turns, rolls, and top speeds at 45 miles per hour. My heart is palpitating just thinking about it.
