I have not heard anything confirmed about Falling Star leaving.

Falling Stars are easily one of my favorite flats. Most parks have gotten ride of them so I would assume they are pricey to maintain

I spotted Quimera/ Triple Loop on the move from Mexico to Indiana today headed north on I-55 in southern MO.

Meanwhile the truck driver was probably confused why he was being tailed by someone with a camera. 😆

Pretty sure it's Chimera from Chapultepec Park in Mexico City!  Who would have ever guessed that a park that was super closed and bankrupt would reopen, and save a coaster we all assumed was doomed!!!

I heard something about that Schwarzkopf Shuttle Loop from the same park as the Triple Loop coaster. Indiana Beach would also have bought this rollercoaster.
Is that true? That would be awesome because there aren't many shuttle loop coasters left in the world.

I highly doubt that, but the owner did mention that they want to add a second roller coaster in 2022.

^ Who cares about the kids when they could get another Schwarzkopf?

So people are drawing the conclusion that the possible new coaster in 2022 could be the old Kennywood Laser Loop (Cascabel). That would literally be the most incredible thing, but I'll believe it when I see it.

I would be so happy if they got the shuttle coaster. I miss Tidal Wave a lot at SFGAm, so to have this less than 3 hours away would be fantastic!  I would love to have my son experience what launch coasters used to be like.

That's one of those things that just seems way too good to be true. However, seeing the recent timeline of events at this park, it seems just about anything is on the table.

I give the new owner credit for not only reviving what was thought to be a dead park, but pursuing an aggressive growth plan that will help to entice guests back and reestablish a relationship with regional visitors. I’ll be very curious to see how they approach refurbishing these Schwartkopfs and if these additions are enough to spur a turnaround for the park, given how rough the last few years have been.

I mean, it's been enough to convince me to finally stop by IB next time I'm out there! I sure hope it can turn things around, seems like such a unique little park that has had so many tribulations, would be great to see it thrive.

Buying Quimera already came out of nowhere. I would argue that this was more surprising than getting the shuttle loop. If they get the shuttle loop, then that would be fantastic too. There is only one left in the US, so that would  double the number.

Is Montezooma's Revenge really the only shuttle loop left in the US??

And Bullet in Mexico which is kind of like a Shuttle Loop. I really wish I'd headed out to Flamingo Land to try it many years ago instead of deciding on going to Drayton Manor to try out a stand up coaster instead.

Not sure if I'll actually make it here this year, but I bought a pass anyway to help out Gene and Co.

I'd really like to ride all their coasters.

Closest I've seen was a portable Dragon Wagon pulling out of a gas station.  Not going to lie, I thought about following it for a split second until I realized how sad that would be.

^ Yes.  The remaining ones are really spread out.  1 in North America, 1 in Brazil, 1 in Europe, 1 in Japan, and 1 in South Africa.

I didn't realize there were that few left. Now that I think about I believe I've only been on two traditional shuttle loops. Does this include shuttle loops from all manufacturers or just Schwartzkopf?

That does not include arrow shuttle loops
