Tearing down the Myrtle Beach Hurricane - Photos & Video

Postby carolinacaniac » Sun Mar 04, 2007 11:56 am

I saw this from a link on Screamscape, and this made me bummed, especially the two videos at the bottom. I now this sounds pathetic, but i wish they would have done something more "humaine" for demolish it instead of ripping it apart :cry:

here is the site:

And to think, I had just ridden that for the first time only about 7 months ago.

We knew it was coming eventually.

It wasn't exactly anything special, that's for sure.

Ya, it wasn't fun to ride, but it sure looked nice. Mabey if they had retracked it and gotten rid of the G-trains it could have been a good ride.

He's kind of sad and pathetic

Good riddance to a rough coaster. The helixes were really bad.

on some days, this thing was pretty fun. But on most days, the fun part was trying to rearrange one's internal organs upon disembarkment

goodbye... you POS.

I find it somehow appropriate that a coaster that was rough on the rider is also being rough on the decontrucion crew. :lolr:

Apparantly the piece of junk is giving them a hard time.
