Funny that this thread has come back to life a bit as I was at MB two weeks ago on vacation and drove by the park to get some photos. They had a mega-church next to the parking lot, so we parked in their lot and I walked around the theme park parking lot & across the street to get some photos.

Ok, so Time Machine wasn't the best or a "top ten" coaster, but I enjoyed it alot when I rode it in 2009. Sure it rattled, but the Zero-G was heavenly. I know of MANY smaller parks that could really use this in their coaster line up!

I really thought the ride was about as "mediocre" as they come. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good. If it wasn't for the fact that we were doing a bunch of filming at the time, it would have been a "one and done" for me. I actually liked the layout of the ride as I really like B&Ms (or really any coaster maker for that matter) that have two vertical loops in them, NOT back-to-back. But even with a unique and fun layout, the ride did really nothing for me.

It would do great at a smaller park that needs a bigger ride, and the GP would love it, but it's not going to "WOW" anyone...

No, the Vekoma Mine Train was the Eagles ride.

^That was the strangest bit of theming ever--unless when you think of "the Fast Lane" it brings to mind a Vekoma Mine Train sitting on a lawn.

I think the folks over at Holiday World should buy that B&M. It would be PERFECT for that park.

Over near Voyage would be a great place for it.

With a statue straight out of the burning man festival as a finale no less.

All I can really say about Time Machine/Led Zeppelin is that it is quite the photogenic coaster. Probably one of the worst post-midcourse break run sections I've ever seen on a coaster too. It would fit at Kentucky Kingdom really well. Who else could it be going to if a sale is indeed close to happening?
