Really? How? The only way that I could see it is if the rides were all replaced. Why would that be worth it?

I think it would be cool for a new group to buy this and maybe a couple other of the SF parks and make a new chain, since Paramount is out of the business now. Just a thought.

I love all these people saying there is no way they can fit anymore rides into the park...

You obviously have never been to blackpool... Now granted it isn't exactly tasteful but they have rides on top of rides on top of rides... It is very possible to add probably 1-2 creative coasters to the land they currently have developed with minimal relocation or removal of rides.

Plus I have never understood why the area in the Twister 2 helix remains undeveloped. It seems like a great location for a (very) small flat ride...

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

^^Flying Coaster is not unique. I'm pretty sure there are at least 6 of them permanently operating in the world.

According to the Rocky Mountain News today, Six Flags wants to see it remain an amusement park, but will not turn down an investment bid if it's the highest. It is also rumored that there are up to 7 different groups interested in purchasing it and keeping it as an amusement park!

Lets hope that is true! I am hoping for Herschend Family Entertainment (owners of Dollywood) to buy it! They are one of the rumored interested parties.

I know more about donkeys than women!

You know if the owners of dollywood bought it that means dolly would have another place to hang out. But id rather see them buy 3 of the 6 parks sfmm, sfeg, sfdl, "just a thought" :b :b

NEWS: Elitch's Acrobat Dies After Fall

Postby Twister II » Sun Aug 13, 2006 3:56 pm



The guy was doing the chair-on-chair stunt on Friday night when he slipped about 30 feet up, he died Saturday morning.

I saw the show, twice, that guy was the one that always looked like he was going to fall.

Seriously? What else could go wrong with this park?! Death, its for sale, 52 characters fired, rides down rest of the year, no more parade, etc.
