Flamingo Land Discussion Thread

Postby ParkTrips » Wed Sep 28, 2005 8:05 am

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Flamingo land, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Official Park Website


Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!

I'll believe it when I see it though. Flamingoland has been threatening to take out Bullet and Magnum Force since 2002 now!

I also agree that Bullet is amazing and should stay put but let's wait and see what actually happens.

The Bullet is up for sale:

Along with Magnum Force, Black Hole, and a few other rides.

Who'd want buy it is another story - not many parks would take on an ageing coaster with increasing maintainance costs.

I would be beyond sad if I missed out on both Schwarzkopf's!

However, I think the same thing applies to Magnum Force about being in the never-ending removal rumors.

Well if Bullet does get sold I hope it finds a nice new home, I'd take moving the coaster over demolishing it any day. As for the new SLC, I think it looks fair and I wonder if it will valley like Jubilee Odyssey did.
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.
