Stinger was a once per visit ride for me...if it were open. It was usually closed, so I don't view this as too much of a loss.

It is fun to speculate the future of Stinger's site, but I have also learned to not get my hopes up too high with DP.

An ancient mine train by a manufacturer no longer in business with wooden supports is probably the least likely candidate for relocation ever, sorry.

Wasn't there a rumor that this may be the last year of Dinosaurs Alive! for the CF chain?

If so and it does get removed . . . perhaps it and the old Stinger site could be used for a GCI or Gravity Group woodie?

Oh man can we not start with this? Its been a good 4-5 months since this was mentioned. There is absolutely nothing to this perpetual rumor that seems like it will never die. The park could add 4 B&Ms and enthusiasts would still be all "Dinos Alive, guys. GCI woodie all the way!!"
