Seabreeze has confirmed on their Facebook page that the wave swinger and balloon ride from Hard Rocck Park will be moved to Rochester and installed in their park for the 2014 season.

I know EXACTLY where my passport is!

How many other hard rock rides have been successfully relocated? I find it odd that it's taken this long to get the attractions out to other parks.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I would think that the B&M coaster would be a hot item. It is compact and built on flat land; it appears to be a ride that could be re-installed quite easily as compared to a custom terrain built coaster.

I could see this going to a medium to large size park. Course, I am not sure if the major US park chains like Six Flags, Sea World, or Cedar Fair are into buying used coasters of this size. But, if it was a deal they could not pass up, I could see this coaster going into a Cedar Fair park like Worlds of Fun or maybe Dorney park for example. If there is no interest in the coaster from the US parks, it sounds more likely an park in China or Japan could snatch it up.

I am not sure what the market is for the other coasters like the Premier Roundabout, Vekoma Mine Train, or the Premier Suspended coasters. I would think the Vekoma kiddy coaster would have a greater chance of being sold before the others.

Delicious & Refreshing

^^Pretty sure these are the first rides to be relocated so far. I'd imagine the other flats would be first to go, followed by Time Machine, Round About, Iron Horse and the ride system from Monstars of Rock. I'd imagine that Soak'd along with all of the salvageable point of sale, food and beverage, lighting and entertainment systems will be sold afterwards in liquidation.

Actually...

That's progress at least...

Wouldn't be surprised if an auction for the rest of the parks equipment is forthcoming.

I wonder if the Web person had a "shortcut" key for "2 short seasons"? That would've been quite a time saver.

I can't wait to see where these rides will end up! I really hope Six Flags buys some of those flats.
