I wonder if the Vekoma mine train is still in decent shape. An actual themed version would make a great family coaster somewhere.

I'm sure there is a lot of interest in the B&M, the two Vekomas, and the flats. Any of those three coasters would be a welcome addition to a park looking to step into the world of "mega-loopers" or needing to diversify their family coaster selections. The other two coasters seem like they would be more trouble than they are worth having, and they really weren't that great for their intended purposes. If it's not just parks interested in the rides, used ride dealers are probably foaming at the mouth as well. Of course time is an issue, and these rides are losing value each day they sit idle. It's true that any machinery should be operated regularly in addition to general upkeep maintenance, but it seems like whoever is in charge of them is at least keeping them from rotting away completely. Good thing Myrtle Beach is spared from the harsh winters which also helps curb the effects of weathering.

Personally, I don't see this place ever operating as a park, amusement or theme, ever again. Sell off the assets, and chalk it up as a learning experience.

If Ed Hart was smart he would shopping for KK's new rides at HRP.

Round About would be, at least, an "interesting" ride for another park, thanks to its "Ferris wheel" lift.

^Especially if when re-assembling the ride they expanded the layout as was originally planned for Hard Rock Park to take place during the following few seasons.

Exactly. I wasn't the biggest fan of Led Zeppelin, but it would work great in the spot where Chang once sat!

How was Led Zepplin when it was open? Good? Bad? Just kind of okay?

I'm still puzzled why the park hasn't been sold off piece by piece yet. I would think an investor could come in sell off the rides, level the park and have a nice piece of land to develop into houses or condos. Someone probably still has hope of re-opening the park.

^^^Agreed. Not to mention 9/10 guests wouldn't even know this was a coaster from another park. If Ed does decide to purchase it, I wonder if he will keep the on-board audio working.

^^^ Led Zep was just in the so-so category. I went to FMP the second year and it had already developed a bad rattle in the back. I loved the zero g on it though. It was one of the best I have felt on a B&M. Total float all the way through.
