Yeah. It's the #7 flange on the flex joint. They're tossing in a box and sending over the pond right now.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

On the german Forum "coasterfriends" they said that Wicked Twister may be running its final "laps" at September 8th.
Don't know how much to give on that information and if it's okay to post a link here. but it would all be in German, anyway.

I actually heard from a friend, who does actually know "people in the know" at CP, who told me last September that he'd been told Wicked Twister was going to get removed. It wasn't clear when at the time, and obviously it wasn't last year. But even though I currently can't ride it due to my size, I'd hoped it would stay, as I actually really like it! At the time he told me about it, it seemed out of the blue, and wasn't being discussed by enthusiasts much. Now, there is so much chatter about it, that it really does seem more and more likely. I'm hoping it's not the case, but at the same time, its removal only makes way for more transformation at CP, and that's rarely ever a bad thing!

I can see WT being moved, its kind of the perfect coaster for relocation since its compact and can fit in a tight location. I also remember hearing rumors of WT possibly being relocated to CGA.
Coaster Count: 142 total 94 steel 48 wood
Favorite Steel Coaster: Skyrush at Hershey Park
Favorite Wood Coaster: A tie between The Voyage at Holiday World and T Express at Everland

I am one that hope it doesn't get re-located. I love WT and love having no wait to ride it. Its a shame a decent coaster gets overlooked by so many.

I love donkeys more than me.

Thing is it wouldn't get over looked at CGA, MIA, WOF ect
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Well, Be-Bop Blvd at Michigan's Adventure just had its last ride. Trying to picture the space, but I wonder if it could fit there?

I love WT and would be sad to see the park remove the world’s tallest inverted roller coaster :p

If it does get removed, I hope it doesn’t get scrapped. The world has lost enough launched yellow intamin inverted roller coasters this year.
