Dutch Wonderland to add Merlin's Mayhem S&S Family Inverted Coaster

Recommended Posts




Nov. 1, 2016 (Lancaster, PA)Dutch Wonderland is excited to announce the addition of their first suspended family roller coaster, Merlin’s Mayhem, scheduled to open during the summer of 2017. Merlin’s Mayhem will feature new thrills, twists and turns, as guests experience an enchanted journey with Dutch Wonderland’s friendly magician, Merlin.

Families will join Merlin on a high-flying adventure in search of his dragon friend, Mayhem, who has disappeared into the park. Thematic events, beginning in the queue, reveal the story of Mayhem and Merlin. Once guests board the ride, Merlin will begin giving clues and encouragement through on-board audio within the seats. As the enchanted flying machine returns to the station, the mischievous Mayhem is safely reunited with Merlin.

Merlin’s Mayhem, manufactured by S&S Worldwide, will be the tallest ride located at Dutch Wonderland, featuring a 60 foot rise to the top, along with two helix turns. At a minimum height requirement of 39 inches, this new roller coaster will be enjoyed by young and old alike.


It sounds like it will be a great addition for the park and the last coaster they added was Joust in 1998.


The cost is $7.5 million which seems high for a family coaster but I guess that factors in the queue and any special effects and the audio in the seats.
