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

I don't know about Holiday World, they're a Wooden Coaster Park, but my opinions are Fiesta Texas, It can be good for the park (but we got Superman Krypton Coaster that is basically the same), Worlds of Fun if possible I think that it would work out fine in WOF, Carowinds I can definitely imagine going there!

I love donkeys more than me.

No guys, they should send it to Darien Lake. They can put it next to Gwazi and Batman. :lmao:

My favorite roller coaster is dumb.

I agree that Holiday World or KK are the best future homes for Led Zep, and I could see the Vekoma Mine Train also being put to good use by Holiday World.

No, the Vekoma Mine Train was the Eagles ride.



Ahhh....I knew I should have Googled first! ;)

^ :lol: I guess I just assumed that the second biggest coaster that the park had must have had something to do with "the Fast Lane".

Well no wonder the park failed! :lmao:

Time Machine would make for a good, cheaper replacement for Chang. I think it'd fit better there than anywhere else, really.
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

Coasters: 290
Parks: 51

The only thing better than a naked woman is a naked donkey!

Seabreeze announced two new rides for 2014 today: Wave Swinger and Balloon Race, both from HRP/FMP. Looks like there may not be a future for this park after all...
