I'm just saying that maybe Darien Lake isn't going send 'Cuda Falls to the scrapyard since the slides are still on the park's property, just in storage.

Other than Darien Lake I have never known a park that has junk in a field that everyone seems to be convinced will be reassembled one day.

Everyone = DarienLaker

The only thing that was removed that might someday be refurbished and re-assembled is UFO. And given the passage of time, i doubt it. I dont recall how long it was before Scrambler was brought back.

There’s a difference between UFO’s situation and Scrabler’s situation. Scrambler was only removed to make way for the new Rowdy’s Ridge area. UFO was removed because it was old and unreliable.

I don't think the slides would go to a scrapyard, considering i believe they are fiberglass. Not much you can do with them besides chuck them in a landfill to get rid of them.

Didn't realize Philly had any cups until you posted that sir... GO PENS

Anyways... was Cuda Falls a replica of the Sharks slides at SFWOA or something completely different? Seem similiar.

Being perpetually in flux of being for sale and in the process of bought makes it hard to do much with capital assets (even if they're junk but still on the books). Especially after the aforementioned issues with PARC on their way out. Likewise why Batman took so long due to insurance claims processing and making sure the money went to the right pockets before, yeah, it could finally be scrapped.

With the park in constant flux, keeping all of those things around are actual assets that could be used in a sale to add value to the park. CF is probably just getting ready to go to the dump, just like they took that old standup coaster to the scrap yard

That moment when someone online sees your location and tries to trash talk your sports team but they don't pay attention enough to realize you give absolutely zero f*cks about hockey or any other sport. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Also, that's a glass, not a cup. Better luck next time! ;)
