Discuss theme parks, roller coasters, and mules!

I meant just the ride itself. The theming sucked.

^I wasn't a fan of the ride iteself, either--just an average family coaster plunked down on a lawn.

Kind of wonder if it is a little late in the season to have these come up for sale and see a lot of action. Plans and budgets have been set for next season. Might be a while before we see a lot of movement.

^I wonder if something happened behind the scenes with the bankruptcy?

The timing actually makes some sense... get all the rides up for sale and let interest brew for a week or so before IAAPA where you can talk all about them to potential clients. Cypress Gardens closed right around when IAAPA started in 2008 and I believe that was not by accident as many of the rides were sold that week at the Expo.

^ Makes total sense! HRP is the flea market sale of IAAPA.

Yeah, I agree with this theory. EVERYTHING MUST GO!

Irvine Ondrey Engineering's Facebook page, it sounds like Maximum RPM (ferris wheel coaster) is working again and is looking for a new owner:https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=693990953958263&set=a.475305665826794.115576.474347982589229&type=1&theater
A SBNO rides again thanks to IOE! Brian's down in Myrtle Beach at the former Freestyle Music Park working on getting Maximum RPM ready for a new home... and he was able to bring it back to life today! Not an easy task, so good job, Brian!
Hope it gets sold!

^It's a good family ride, and the Ferris wheel lift is unique.

I would love to see this ride relocated, since I never had the chance to visit the park. I always found the Ferris wheel lift fascinating.
