I did some research on the subject and I could find no instance of B&M or Intamin leasing a custom built rollercoater directly to an operator. There are numerous cases of off the shelfs and "traveling fair" coasters being leased by builders, former owners, and management companies but there is nothing I could find that gives any indication that a major ride has ever been leased.
On a totally different topic, if my memory serves me correct the Freestyle management team purchased the entire park for 25 million with assuming minimal debt from the previous owners. It seems to me that a quick profit could have been made simply by dismantling the park and selling the rides off. I know there was speculation about this happening during the previous bankruptcy proceedings, but if we see another bankruptcy or reorganization occur I'd bet $100.00 that this park will be dismantled and sold off..
