Did CF sell them?
Trash them?
Transferred any?
Just curious...

Liquid Lightning was sold to Camelbeach Mountain, and the kiddie complex also sold but I don't know who to. Thunder Falls, originally on the ride side, is still for sale but nobody has made an offer yet. Last I heard Cedar Fair was getting quotes for demolition.

From my last drive through the area back in June the slides were still standing on site. Not sure if they are still there or not. Hard to believe it's been ten years this week since the ride side closed.

^Alright, where are all our rich Folks on TPR? :lmao: I would imagine a water slide like this would be much cheaper than a roller coaster. What would be difficult would be transportation and legal stipulations.

It will probably still cost high 6-figure to low 7-figure for teardown, transport, and install.

Probably just a bit out of my price range to have a slide complex in my back yard

My 8-year old daughter is still trying to convince me to buy it haha. I'll swing by WWK this Sunday, I'm heading up for the marker ceremony to get footage for my documentary. I've attempted to get in legally but Cedar Fairs insurance policy on the site no longer covers the general public so I'm SOL unless I want a trespassing ticket 8-)

Shocked they didn't move it to California's Great America, Worlds of Fun, or Carowind's or another one of their parks.
