Not long after I took over operations of the park, Prince Desmond called me and gave me an address. It was a huge warehouse. He took me inside, and strewn about were various coaster parts. Most looked to be Arrow, many stacks of lumber, and a pile of Schwarzkopf track. He then proceeded to tell me what it all was.....
"The orange and black track, it's a Bat from the Island of Kings!"
"The wood, it came from a Hurricane!"
"Then ones of blue, black and red, those came from many places, I'm not sure how they go together, but you can figure it out, I'm sure"
"The blue and green, along with the white, were made of lightning!"
"The blue and yellow, I'm told, came from a large snake!"
He then told me that these NEEDED to go along side Teh Big Dipper, where they can live once again. Desmond gave me no blueprints, just some old photos to work from. Teh Bat was fairly easy, as all the parts were there. Python was simple as well. The wood had to be brought in with a fleet of pickup trucks to the park, some from Florida. The Schwarzkopf parts were from two shuttle loops. One was whole. The other was just a loop, so I merged the two rides. As I strolled trough the remaining Arrow parts, I start to figure it out. The first drop/inversion of Drachen Fire, the boomerang of The Great American Scream Machine, assorted parts from the Steel Phantom, the interlocking loops of The Orient Express and the corkscrews of Shockwave. Desmond had been saving more than just Teh Big Dipper. This would not be easy. Vintage Gardens in Game ExchangeDesmond has saved more than just teh Big Dipper.......
