Quick, someone find the local Dippin' Dots vendor and confirm this! :airtime:

That's funny because they are rehabbing and painting the water ride right now.

^So instead of bringing pickup trucks, dedicated coaster "savers" can just carry it over! Genius! :lol:
Ignore the screaming in the woods...

Everything is fine.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Okay, I have cleaned this thread up some.

Until there is a credible news source claiming this to be fact, it is at this time an unfounded rumor.

Also, coasterkid98, you might want to review the TOS you agreed to upon signing up. Especially, the ones about proper grammar and capitalization and especially posting for posting sake.

3. SPELL CHECK YOUR POSTS & USE PROPER GRAMMAR!!!! There is a completely FREE spell checker available with the Google toolbar. A typo here and there is completely acceptable. We all are guilty of this. But when someone can't READ your post due to bad spelling, grammar, lack of capitalization, etc, that's a problem. If you aren't a good speller (and I totally admit I would be lost without my spellchecker) download it now: http://toolbar.google.com/

5. Do not post for posting sake. What does this mean? If all you do is respond back to posts saying "Yeah, me too" or "I agree" or "Thanks!" you are not adding anything to the conversation. If you do this every once in a while, that's ok, but we have users here that seem like all they are doing is trying to post as much as possible to increase their post count. Well, there is no prize for having high post count, so please, only respond if you have something to add to the conversation.

^^ or maybe a specially developed sling shot to fire pieces of the track in the direction of Circus Circus. An attraction in itself! :br

ADMIN EDIT: There was a reason your previous posts were removed--there's no way to "confirm" what you are claiming. Please quit posting about this. You've also been warned about your posting style.

FYI: I am still working with the liquidation company/owner of Speed: The Ride for a photo op. I am holding off posting photos of the hotel/ride in it's current state until I hear something one way or the other. On an unrelated note, I will be posting a Photo TR in my Diary thread within the next few days that shows the rehab taking place on Rim Runner.
