Not to derail this thread any further, but a huge part of the problem is there not anything actually tough about them. They exist, and some businesses (like Knotts when they were open for all their fo

Park isn't wasting any time.

 

Wait, are we sure the ride is even leaving? Looks like routine maintenance to me... I see no evidence in that picture that the ride is going anywhere!

 

EDIT: Looking at it again, I can see why some of you think the track is missing, but with my engineering degree, I can confirm that that is merely an illusion. (Perilous Plunge for president, 2012!)

I think there's very little chance of them selling the ride to anyone. It has a bad reputation and it killed someone. It's a black sheep, unless CF gives it to another CF park.

Plus, this isn't like the dismantling of WindJammer where they didn't need to be careful because there was nothing else around there. They have to be gentle with this because it's A) Taller than Windjammer and B) There are other buildings in the way if they weren't careful.

The track is pretty ripped apart to the left of the blue man-lift. I'm going to say that we will not be seeing this thing ever rebuilt.

 

I'm excited to see what will be replacing it though, regardless of what it is from a Giga to a family water splash ride.

Is it too much to ask that that one of these pieces falls over and breaks Boomerang? After park hours of course.

 

No harm no foul.

 

It's rather interesting seeing them take it out...I'll be weird looking back at the boardwalk now without seeing that towering structure.

What's with all this hatred towards Boomerang?!?!

 

 

Apparently the park forces some people to ride it when they visit; there by making them want it to be taken out. Also, it sits on a massive piece of land that you could build 6 other rides on! Don't forget the horrendous down times and cost to maintain the ride. Its kind like a black hole of coasters basically. So people hate is for all these 'real' reasons.

 

Or.... because a few just don't like it.

I don't think PP being scrapped as it seems that PP's parts are flat on the connector edges as seen in this photo:

It's kind of hard to see, but look at the edges pointed by the tip of the arrows, they are straight. PP's dismantled parts have straight edges.

People always talk about the lack of plant life in the area, maybe they are following what Disney did with Maliboomer.

 

The splash down would make a nice Koi pond and the bridge a good viewing/feeding platform. The area where the lift and drop was could then be used for some benches and some planters with nice trees. They could put a decent number of trashcans there swell.

 

Disney and Magic Mountain did it, Knotts needs one too!

If, by any chance, they were moving PP to another park, that could explain why they would be dismantling this in a hurry. Even if they aren't hurrying to clear the way for something big and new in 2013, they might be trying to move it and install it somewhere else in 2013. I still really think it would be a good addition at Michigan's Adventure.

As pretty as this would look I'd think the park would probably go more with a new flat or coaster.

I'm sure a random park in Mexico would take it.

 

And let's remember that it only killed someone who was fat and didn't fit into the restraint. Outside of America, I don't think this will be an issue.

And the ride ops failed to catch that and dispatched the boat anyway.
