I thought their maintenance building was a closet with Duct tape and a screwdriver.

I think their maintenance budget goes to buying a hotel and raising its rates to $300 a night.

Not sure the best place to post this, but rcdb is listing Avalanche at Timber Falls as SBNO. Posted with this:

The park has stated they would be shutting down the roller coaster for good this summer (2018). No word on if/when the ride will be taken down.


Anybody have more information? Is that it? Are we closed for good here?

I just checked the park's website and there's no mention of the flume or Avalanche on the Rides or Pricing page. The only attractions mentioned are the Skyscraper (closed for season) and mini golf.

That's a shame since I heard good things about Avalanche.

Oh man I hope the ride is going to be re-located if anything. It is easily the best coaster in the area.

I know it is not from the Dippin Dots guy and I never put too much credence into what a ride op says, but last summer the ride op at Avalanche turn me the coaster was closing soon and the owners were planning to replace it which a "better" coaster.

Screamscape says Avalanche is done for good. Such a shame if true. What a great ride!

^ Agreed. I road it last summer and I didn't think it was that bad. Hopefully the log flume isn't being removed as well. It's actually my second favorite(my favorite log flume is the at NU).

Iron Horse Avalanche?
Or (Crazy Thought) A Gerstlauer Euro Fighter or Infinity. Don't seem that expensive and probably easy to market (Most inversions in the state, steepest drop in the state, tallest steel coaster in the state). That's me doing a Tony Clark impression.
