PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) – Oaks Amusement Park in Portland will replace its most popular ride with something more extreme.
The park on Tuesday said the Scream’n Eagle will be replaced due to the age of the ride. It has been the park’s most popular ride for the past 15 years, according to a spokesperson, who says the new attraction, the AtmosFEAR, will be a more extreme version of the Scream’n Eagle.
The AtmosFEAR is two rides in one and will stand at approximately 100-feet when in full swing, according to officials. The ride features a pendulum version similar to the ride it is replacing and a 360-degree over-the-top setting for more adventurous riders, according to the spokesperson.
The park anticipates opening the ride either when they are able to reopen for the year or shortly thereafter. The park says it is waiting for guidance from state and county officials for when it will be able to reopen.
