I think these rides would be great if acquired by Cedar Fair. Parks like CGA, Michigan Adventure, Valleyfair, and WOF could benefit... as well as the others.

I hope someone gets that too and keeps the lift as is. Very unique but I can see maintenance being a pain and replacing it with a standard lift hill.
During the Freestyle season, I was told by a girl minding the closed coaster that they had a machine shop and 3 people, to fabricate replacement parts for the thing. I'm guessing that Premiere probably wasn't too cooperative when the bills were overdue. Just about all the HRP/FP vendors were owed, including a lot of small local companies that could hardly afford it. I heard that these new rides can be monitored and controlled remotely- I wonder if Premiere hit the 'off' button? That might explain why the water coaster also wasn't working when I was there.
As I was looking at the mechanism, she remarked "isn't it awesome?!". I responded "yeah, but it would be even more awesome if it worked."
Wouldn't be surprised if an auction for the rest of the parks equipment is forthcoming.
There's tons of neat stuff there, non-ride related. There's a bar with a brick wall behind it- that was originally the wall behind the stage at CBGB's. I don't know if they still have it, but they had the bus from 'Magical Mystery Tour'- and it ran, too.

People keep saying how this would be good for Kentucky Kingdom. Personally, I'd rather see Kentucky Kingdom get something different. This ride obviously didn't help Hard Rock Park stay in business so why would it be the savior for Kentucky Kingdom?
If anything, I'm more interested to see how Thunder Run operates after it's been given some Rocky Mountain love!
