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!
I wouldn't expect them to pick up an old coaster that had to be intentionally designed to be average like Led Zepplein/TTM, but maybe they'd pick up another thing to plug in the park somewhere. Rocky Mountain treating Thunder Run and KK putting in something new and exciting but not world-title-belt holding would be more worthwhile considering the cash they want to sink in.
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.
I think those were all on loan from the Hard Rock collection?

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."
I heard the same thing!
Leviathan - "I am a B&M, I am clearly not the father. I305 is not my child." Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure" Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father! Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"
I'm really hoping all the rides go to American parks. I never got to visit this park and I'd really like to ride some of these rides. Time Machine is similar to Kumba at BGT and that's one of my favorite coasters, so it'd be convenient if I didn't have to travel to far to get the credit when it is relocated. The rest of the coasters look like kiddie coasters but I'd ride them regardless if I didn't have to go to far to ride them. Six Flags or Cedar Fair needs to show some of their smaller parks some love, Michigan's Adventure or Great Escape would make a good fit for these coasters imo.
I am happy to see all of these rides officially for sale to hopefully put an end to the rumors of the park reopening. From what I remember when we went to FMP was that all the rides were decent but nothing stood out to me as outstanding. It is great to see that most, if not all, of these rides will continue to have a life elsewhere instead of just wasting away.
