‘Adventureland’ in Iowa Adding Two New Exciting Rides This Summer
The summer vacation season is coming up on us fast, and if you're looking to embark on an ultimate adventure during the summer of 2023, one awaits you about 280 miles just south and east of Sioux Falls.
Adventureland Resort near Des Moines, Iowa is in the process right now of gearing up for the summer vacation season with two new big additions planned for adventure seekers.
As Dakota News Now reports, the popular Midwest outdoor amusement park is adding two new adventures for thrill seekers to explore during the summer of 2023, the "Flying Viking" roller coaster and the return of the "Draken Falls" log ride.
And what's really exciting, both new Viking-themed rides are intertwined!
The highlight, Draken Falls, was a staple of Adventureland ever since the resort opened to the public in 1974. However, they replaced the beloved ride following the close of the 2015 season. The good news is it's finally back after eight long years, and it promises to be better than ever, with an aerial panoramic turnaround, an airtime hill, and that same 40-foot drop at the very end that every Adventureland Resort goer will no doubt remember.
Adventureland is also rolling out the park's seventh roller coaster this summer.
The Flying Viking promises to climb to a height of 50 feet, as it soars, over, under, and around the new Draken Falls log flume ride. Adventureland is billing its latest roller coaster as the perfect ride for Viking invaders from young kids to adults.
Adventureland guarantees to have even more surprises planned for their guests when the park kicks off its 2023 summer vacation season on Saturday, (May 6).
