The two coasters are Steeplechase and Soarin' Eagle. The following link has images of the coasters.
(Just click next on the top of the image box)
Video from the NY Post showing Scream Zone and the rides. There are a lot of interviews in the video, but if you skip them, there are some great images and video of the rides, as well as information. The thumbnail shows one of the interviews, which get more frequent mid-video.
They both seem to be compact coasters, with about 50 inch height restrictions for each. Soarin' Eagle has you ride horizontal and has a vertical spiral to it, and Steeplechase, according to the article, goes 0-40 mph in two seconds. Steeplechase is based on the original ride at Coney Island, from many years back. They are a little more than family coasters, with some added thrills for the more daring of us.
These are the first new coasters in the park since the opening of the classic Cyclone coaster, in 1927.
From what I see, Soarin' Eagle is perhaps the same type of compact coaster as Super Flight at Rye Playland. Here's a link to a video of Super Flight: http://www.youtube.com/v/eNydh3mZv68
One of the other rides is the Slingshot, a bungee-cord launch type of ride. It's visible in the video, too.
Scream Zone opens the coasters today (Saturday), so I'm sure there will be more info on them soon. I probably won't check it out for myself just yet, but possibly soon. Pictures if I do go
New park theme area, new rides, new coasters! Great to see the park coming back to life!
