My parents went on a date and rode this coaster! I can honestly say that it contributed to my existence! Those pics are very depressing, since I too have so many memories of this coaster. Hopefully they'll build that rumored B&M Flying coaster though! :b

Seems So Surreal

Hearing the ride close itself was sad, but seeing it finally get torn down is worse. :(

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

Wow, not only do they remove it but they rip it to pieces like it's some Togo from the eighties. I know it makes no sense to take it down nicely but I feel like I am watching one of my own pets from my childhood get put down with a chainsaw. :cry: Seriously, this can't be worth it. Blackstone better get something Universal quality into that location because I feel that not even another great B&M machine can make me forget these pictures.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

I've been hearing about this ACE coaster museum my whole life. I don't think it's ever going to happen. That's just me though.

Chris.
