I don't believe any of the bricks are still there but I am not 100% on that. Daniel would know for sure.

The bricks are still there. The idea of removing them was tossed around back when the park changed names in 2006 because of the brick mural the engraved bricks surround but they covered that up with park maps instead and kept the engraved bricks.

aZoosment Park, Add the Rampage.


Couldn't cost more than 4 million. Probably cheaper than a new wooden coaster? (300,000 for the Coaster, 2 Million to Relocate, 1.7 to Rebuild?)

^Except for the fact that it was custom built for the hillside at AA.

And I am not really sure what all you could get out of Rampage to make it worth it outside of the trains and mechanical equipment.

Nothing a call to TGG couldnt solve. Little consulting, adjusting of footers and bent lengths and boom, all set.

^It's a little more complicated than that. Trust me, we're not going to see Rampage operate ever again unless they reopen the doors to the amusements at AA.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Since this was probably one of the ghettoest-looking parks anyway, it's gonna look really ghetto with a bunch of random pathways, closed buildings, and Rampage's wooden corpse.

They should keep the Log Flume and maybe the Rapids ride (does it even operate?) for sure. They're physically the closest rides to the Waterpark, they are water rides, and they would help the park towards maintaining a decent level of attractions this year. Just install a path from the lazy river and you've got two more rides. Buzzsaw is right there next to the main entrance as well.

Just put those random water mazes and things on the former games area and it all makes sense. I hope they think of this.
