They should be able to wheel and deal like a used car. Though it wasn't used for long......

^I wonder if B & M would still provide warranty service. Probably not considering it's over 2 1/2 years old.

Highly doubt that Ed will want Led Z. It just not a record breaking coaster.

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

As much as I was underwhelmed by Led Zep, it just makes too much sense. A bargain-priced, impressive looking, people eating sit-down looper would be a smart play for someone looking to re-spark interest in a park that has been closed for a few years. There certainley isn't anything similar in the area. Only downside is I bet some people will probably think its just Chang with a new name- which is a better problem to have than the gaping hole you would have had otherwise.
Been you to have any spike, man?

btw, The Led Z. has a MASSIVE footprint. It front print is about twice the length as Chang footprint. Their isn't enough room for that coaster. The only place this coaster can fit is behind T2, but that area will be used for the parking lot.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Granted, the sizing may not be just right, but it seems like Led Zeppelin would fit nicely in Chang's old spot.

^It's too bad that area is going to be used for the water park expansion. The new B&M will be placed on the SkyCoaster and Roadrunner's former spot (probably).

(By the way, nice cropping!)

I'm hoping for the removal of the Thrill Karts. When the park was in operation, I hardly ever saw them running. When they were, it appeared most riders just hopped in and started driving without paying for a ticket.

Seems like a waste of valuable money and space...

And while I'm not particularly fond of the idea of LZ coming to Kentucky Kingdom, I can't think of any other/better B&M they could get their hands on for less than $10 million (the price Ed announced he was planning to spend on a new coaster).

Young and Stupid! I blame my parents.

I do hope Led Z does get built again somewhere, I'd hate to see such a large coaster rot after such a short life. Actually I can see a large appeal for LZ for one reason: The Audio. It makes sense, a large coaster, used, but with a special feature like that, make it a likely purchase.

I wonder where the rollerskater is going...it seems like a ride that would sold quickly to a small park. As for the two Permier Fail-types, I don't see them going any park.... With the lawsuits on the ride vehicles for one, and CRAPacity on the other, there future seems bleak...

As different as those rides were, I don't think any parks really would want them...
