A soak-and-get-soaked ride with boat-like vehicle equipped with water guns.
Worlds of Fun
Kansas City, MO
Another very tall swing tower ride is coming to the Missouri park (although at 301 feet, it will be about 100 feet shy of the swing ride coming to Six Flags New England), but it will not be brand new. The relocated ride first thrilled guests at Knott's Berry Farm.

Las Vegas, NV
The new coaster at the indoor amusement park will feature a greater-than-90-degree drop followed by a heavy dose of negative Gs. Its single-car, four-passenger trains will navigate tight turns and other thrilling elements.
Deferred from 2013, two giant Ferris wheels are supposed to open on the Las Vegas Strip in 2014. One, the 550-foot High Roller is under construction and on track to begging spinning. Construction on the planned 500-foot SkyVue, however, appears to be stalled and may not debut in 2014, if ever. Both would be taller than the London Eye.

Two "flat rides" will debut. One will be a Disk'O Coaster (a spinning ride platform that moves back and forth on a short section of coaster track) and a flying scooters-style spinning ride.
Banshee and The Bat
At 4124 feet and a ride time of 2:40, Banshee will be the world's longest inverted coaster. Also, in honor of a gone-but-not-forgotten ride, Kings Island is renaming the Flight Deck suspended coaster The Bat.

Find Oregon theme parks
A six-slide tower will be added to the water park. Three of the slides will include launch chambers which will release into near 90-degree drops.
Cocoa Cruiser and more
Three smaller rides will open including the Cocoa Cruiser family coaster.
It actually opened late in the 2013 season (after being delayed for many years), but the retro wooden bobsled-style coaster will have its first full season in 2014.
Cookie’s Monster Land
The cookie-loving monster will get his own land which will feature five new ride and a play area. I'm guessing there will be a food stand selling cookies as well.
