For $3 million this property could be a steal for someone with a legitimate vision. I could see it becoming a great retreat/summer camp, or some type of resort.

I'm glad the Resurrection Mountain idea died early. While it would have been mildly entertaining to see that crash and burn, it's better this way for everyone.

I feel like this property's best chance is to convert it into a resort with added attractions as amenities for the resort. The limited access and limited appeal of the former Ghost Town in the Sky concept coupled with the lack of functional rides have really killed this park's chances of operating entirely as an amusement park.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

It looks like we will be trading a Roller Coaster for a Cross. :?r

Presley wants to take part of the old steel roller coaster and create a huge cross to place on top of what she calls “Resurrection Mountain.” Presley wants the cross to be the tallest in the western hemisphere.


:omg:

Sacrilege!

They should install an S&S Shot Tower on the cross and call it "The Rapture." ;)
